ME PL Solution How to use List View in Salesforce CRM

List View make working with data much easier. In today’s post, we will tell you what List View from the largest CRM Service Provider in the World are. We will also show you how to use them to make your daily work with data easier.

The List View is a way of presenting records for a given tab

An Object is a table with data that contains records or rows in a table, and fields are column headings.

Each Object in your organization has its own List View assigned to it only. By editing the standard List View  available to each user, we’re changing their appearance for all users. 

By selecting a pin next to the names, we will make the list pinned to the Object. This means that every time we access this tab, you’ll see a list that we’ve pinned.
