easy selecting a view in a document library

August 10th, 2010 | Posted by Marijn in sharepoint 2010 | usability

When you have SharePoint 2010, you will immediatly notice the new UI. You either like it or you don’t.
In SP2007 it was really easy to change a view when you were in a list: you had a button on the right hand site listing the views.

In SP2010 you can do the same by clicking on the tab “list” or “library” and clicking on the views.

I just found out a quicker way to do this: when you are in the list or library, you can see the breadcrumb. The last item there is the actual view you are in. If you click on it, the other views on that list will show in a dropdown.

This is really a handy feature. It reminds me of the days I was getting to know SP2007: you will learn something new every day 😉
