Set a default view

  • Updated

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

  • Default views are available on every plan.
  • Guests can't set default views.
  • Owners and admins in Workspaces on the Business Plan and above can set default views for everyone in the Workspace.

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.

  3. Click More settings.
  4. Select All Space settings.

  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!
