The view editor allows the developer to create any number of different views. Views show only the fields the developer selects, can filter records so that only those that match a specified field value are displayed, and can be set to display to only certain application Roles.
An App Designer can access the Views Dashboard, where they can create and edit App Builder views, by clicking on the Views button from the left side navigator.
The views dashboard shows all available views for the current application. An App Designer can create and update them from here.
Each view tile also has the following buttons:
|Click on a Tile||Opens the View Editor with the selected view loaded, so that you can make design changes to the view.|
|Edit – Opens the View Editor with the selected view loaded, so that you can make design changes to the view.|

|Info – Opens the view information panel on the right-hand side of the screen, containing basic form information and an audit history of design changes. (The Info panel is displayed in the example above.)|
|Duplicate – Displays the right side information panel, with summary information about the currently selected view.|
|Delete – Deletes the selected view from the application.|
