Create custom views of Baserow data

Add a new view

When you first create a table, your default view will be the Grid view. After this, you can create additional views at the top left of the table, with the + button.

To create a new view,

  1. From the top of the table, select the view switcher at the top of the table to reveal the view dropdown. If this is a new table, the current view will be the ≡ Grid view.
  2. The options will appear in the View menu at the top of your screen. Go down to the second half of the view dropdown
  3. Select a view type from the options presented for the type of view you’d like to create.
  4. Click on a view type to open up the menu to create your new view. Choose the view permission type and give this view type a name. We recommend giving each view a unique name if you have more than one view in the table.
  5. Click ‘Add view’.

Once you’ve added your new view, you can customize, show/hide fields, filter rows out of it, adjust the width of each column, or sort the rows and columns.

Note that the kanban view is restricted to the premium version only. Users on the free plan cannot create a kanban view.

Switch between views

The current view tab in the table’s upper left corner helps in navigating all of the table’s views. You can switch between different view types in a table by clicking the view switcher in the upper left corner. Then click on the view to switch to the target view.
