Set a View as Default

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconIn a few articles Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of Business Solutions, explains how to work with views. In the demo below he shows how to make a view the default one and describes what this means.

Peter continues to work with the same SharePoint library as in the Views Introduction and Grouped View articles. He even continues his discussion about grouped views, as he explains that the Quick Edit mode does not work in grouped views, which might be a reason for not making a grouped view default.
SharePoint Default view setting

When you make a view default, this view will be opened when you open the list or library. In the classic interface, the view name will be shown first in the row of views, so the Grouped view is the default view in the image below.

To change default view, just check the box for default in another view, and it will replace the earlier default view.
