What are views?

A view is a page in AODocs that lists AODocs documents (or a subset of documents) from one or all document classes in a library.

Users can access views from the library homepage.

Manage your default views

When you create a Team Folder or Secured Folder, a class named Document and a default view called All documents are created by default.

When you create the first document class in a Document Management library, a default view called All documents is created.

Note: The default view All documents is configured to display all the documents in the first (or only) class created in the library. 

As a library administrator, you can configure:

  • who can access the view
  • which documents are listed, based on predefined filters
  • which properties are displayed
  • how the list can be further filtered or browsed by users
  • how the list is sorted
