Published on Mar 30th, 2024

Airtable is a versatile cloud-based platform combining the simplicity of a spreadsheet with the complexity of a database. Views in Airtable allow you to see your data in various formats and layouts, tailor-made to your preferences or the needs of your project. Creating a new view is straightforward, and with this guide, you will be able to organize your Airtable data in a way that best suits your workflow. Here are the steps to create a new view in Airtable:

  1. Open Your Base: Start by opening the base that contains the table for which you want to create a new view.

  2. Views Bar: Locate the views bar just above the grid. This bar displays all of the current views for the table.

  3. Create View: Click the '+ Add View' button, which can typically be found on the left-hand side of the views bar.

  4. Choose View Type: You’ll be prompted with several view options such as Grid, Calendar, Kanban, Gallery, and Form. Select the one that best fits the format you want for your data.

  5. Name Your View: After selecting the view type, you'll be asked to name your new view. Choose a name that reflects the purpose of the view you're creating.

  6. Configure Your View: Depending on the type, configure your view by adding filters, sorting, grouping, or selecting specific fields to display. These settings help tailor your view to highlight key information.

  7. Save Your View: Once you're satisfied with your new view's settings, make sure to save it. In most cases, your view will save automatically, but always check to confirm.

You have now successfully created a new view in Airtable! Remember, views are an excellent way to segment your data and can be shared with team members for collaborative work or kept personal for individual tasks. With your new view, you can optimize your data management and enhance your productivity within Airtable's dynamic platform.
