A View is a saved version of a personalized form or list. It defines which fields appear on the form or list and in which order. Views enable users to quickly display the same form or list in multiple ways. Administrators can create any number of views for a form or list. If a view is not displaying properly, remove the spaces from the view's name. For example, if the name of the view is view X update the name to viewX
