Set a default view

Have a Space, Folder, or List with an important view? Set it as the default to make sure everyone sees that view first.

When you set a view as a default, it's automatically required.

For example, let's say you're planning a vacation schedule in a Team Vacations List. You'd prefer to see everything in Calendar view. When you set Calendar as the default view it's right there for everyone in that List. 

What you'll need

Set a default view

To set a view as the default for a Space:

  1. In the left Sidebar, hover over the Space you want to set a default view for.
  2. Click the ellipsis ... icon.
  3. Click More settings.
  4. Select All Space settings.
  5. Select Default settings for views.
  6. Hover to the left of the toggle and click the ellipsis... icon.
  7. Click Make Default.
  8. Click Review changes.
  9. Review, then click Save changes

This view is now the default and required for that Space and any of its new or existing Folders and Lists. You can go back to the Edit modal and change a default, required view at any time.

List view is required and can't be deleted. You can pin your default view to make it a distinct tab. You can also drag and drop it to the first position in the Views Bar!
