How to create a List View

Creating a List View in Insightly helps you sort and filter your records. You are able to share lists with your team or create private lists that only you can access. You'll also need to create a list to use the kanban view for projects, opportunities, or leads.

In any view, you can click a column header to sort by that field.

To create a List View:

  1. Click the gear icon and select Add New List View.
  2. Fill in the New View Name and select your Sharing Settings.

You can customize which fields appear in your list through the Choose Columns and Group Columns options.

Choose Columns

  1. Click on the gear icon and select Choose Columns.Create_List_View_14.png

  3. To remove columns, find the one you want to remove in Visible Columns and click on it. Then click the left arrow to remove it. It can be added back later if needed.Create_List_View_8.png
