Hiding a view

A Lists designer can prevent a view from appearing in the List View drop-down menu in the ribbon. This is useful for views that exist mainly for auxiliary purposes such as storing a list of records to be used in lookups. These views typically provide no other practical purpose for workspace members.

  1. Enter the Designer.

  2. Expand the Views section and then click the view you want to modify.

  3. Click Properties.

  4. Uncheck Show this view to others in the 'view' menu.
