Views in Model Driven App
In a model-driven app in Power Platform, a view is a customizable display of data from one or more entities in the app. Views allow users to see and interact with data in a way that is tailored to their needs, by specifying which columns to display, which records to include, and how the data should be sorted and filtered.
Views can be created for standard entities (such as accounts, contacts, or leads), custom entities, or related entities. They can also be created as system views (predefined views that are available for standard entities), personal views (views that users create and customize for themselves), or public views (views that are created by administrators and shared with all users).
When creating a view in a model-driven app, users can choose which columns to display, and can also specify filters and sorting criteria to determine which records should be included and how they should be ordered. Views can be saved and reused, and can be customized to meet the specific needs of different users or groups within an organization.
Overall, views are a key feature of model-driven apps in Power Platform, and play an important role in helping users to interact with and make sense of complex data sets. By creating custom views, users can easily find and work with the information they need, improving productivity and helping to drive better business outcomes.
How to Create a View in Model Driven App?
To create a view in a model-driven app in Power Platform, follow these steps:
- Navigate to the "View" section of the app: Open the model-driven app you want to create a view in, and navigate to the "View" section of the app. This section contains all the views available in the app.
- Click "New": Once you are in the "View" section, click the "New" button to create a new view.
- Choose the record type: In the "New View" dialog box, select the type of record that the view will apply to. This could be a standard entity, a custom entity, or a related entity.
- Choose the view type: Next, choose the type of view you want to create. Power Platform offers several types of views, including:
- System views: These are predefined views that are available for standard entities in Power Platform.
- Personal views: These are views that users can create and customize for themselves.
- Public views: These are views that can be created by administrators and shared with all users.
- Configure the view criteria: Once you have chosen the type of view you want to create, you can configure the view criteria. This involves setting filters and conditions that define which records should be included in the view.
- Choose the columns to display: Next, choose the columns that you want to display in the view. You can choose from a range of standard and custom fields, and arrange them in the order you want them to appear in the view.
- Save the view: Once you have configured the view criteria and chosen the columns to display, click the "Save" button to save the view.
- Publish the view: Finally, you can publish the view so that it is available to users. To do this, click the "Publish" button in the view editor.
By following these steps, you can create a custom view in a model-driven app in Power Platform. This can help users to find and interact with data more easily, and can be customized to meet the specific needs of your organization.
