How to create custom views in 5 steps

Learn how to define and use views in Beeye.



Definition: a custom view is a set of settings (filters, groups, sorting, columns) applied to the information of some Beeye pages (employees, projects, tasks, clients) to highlight the data you need most. 

Step 1: Create a new view

Click on the Create a view button in the left-hand menu. The new view appears in the list in the left-hand menu, ready to be set up and adjusted.

Step 2: Select the columns

Are you looking to check the times entered by employees last week? By selecting the columns you need, you limit the information to what is necessary to make your decision, find what you need, and perform the action you want.

To edit the columns, click on the Columns button, then in the right panel, click to add, delete or move the columns as you wish.

Step 3: Select filters

When used properly, filters allow you to quickly pinpoint data with meaningful criteria. For example: only display closed assignments; only employees with a given position; only clients with a particular closing date; etc.

To add filters, click on the Filter button, then in the right panel, click to add, delete or modify filters as desired.

Step 4: Group Information

Groups allow you to add structure to the information displayed by grouping the rows according to a criterion of your choice.

For example, you can group your missions by category or by manager; your employees by position or by team; your tasks by status.

Step 5: Sort the data

Sorting allows you to add a ranking to the information displayed.

For example, you might want to display your employees in order of availability to find the most (or least) available, or display your assignments by scheduled time, to identify assignments that are still to be scheduled.


Tip: edit, share views
In the left menu, click on the "manage views" button located at the bottom. Select the view you want to modify to access the quick actions (hide, rename, duplicate, set as default, make public, delete).


Other display options: some pages, such as the planning page, offer other options that are also saved in the views, such as setting the information contained in the cards displayed on the planning.
