2 What are Views? Views offer a flexible way to display data in ways that suit your purpose. From a View, you can select an object to view its details and initiate actions. The detail form displays the values of some or all of the object's attributes and may allow you to modify those values. Views display lists of your data query results. There are two types of Views: System Views and Personal Views. – System Views are created and maintained by your administrator, and you cannot modify them unless you have the correct privileges. – Personal Views are views that you create. You can display views in one of two ways. – Personal and System Views are stored in the database – Users can save System Views as Personal Views 2 Service Manager 9.2 - Views
