Views are templates that control what data is shown in the tables in your Dashboards, Reports, Specifications, Account specifications and Formulas. At the same time, views define the data series and periods in your charts.
What you see in "View" depends on what you have selected in the view dropdown menu and the slider. In the view dropdown menu you select the view you want and on the you select the content. With the slider you select the period and the YTD with the 3 slider options.
In the View Selector you can either choose one of the Standard Views or My Views. You can set up My Views in the left-hand menu under Views.
To the right of the box you can use the three sliders to select (1) the overall period you wish to see and (2) the current/relevant month = YTD. Use the mouse to pull the sliders - you can activate more than one slider by pressing down the mouse button whilst the selecting the sliders you want.
To the left of the View Selector there is a . Click on this to unfold a panel that shows all the possibilities for the chosen view. You can se some examples in the images below.
You can also edit the view by clicking on Views in the menu on the left.
In the menu on the left under "Views" you'll find an overview of all the different types of Views and the related content. You can see both Standard views and My views, i.e. the ones you have defined yourself.
At the top you will find the Standard views, and for each of these you can select which columns should be shown in the table. For example, with regard to how deviation calculations should appear: should they be displayed as a numerical difference, as a percentage, or as an index? And should last year's related data and deviations be included? By adding or removing a check mark, you can change the content of your reports in an instant.At the bottom of the page you can see My views, i.e. the views where you have specified which data you want to see in your reports, specifications and charts. My views are not quite as dynamic as Standard views, but they offer some possibilities which will be incorporated into Standard views over time.
The "List view" column allows you to hide the views you're not using. This gives a better overview of your lists when you're looking at the different view options. A hidden view can always be shown again by selecting the check mark in the relevant column.
Views are also used in relation to charts. Not only do they help define the period, they also control the data series to be shown in the chart. By clicking  on a chart you can change the view in the dropdown list that appears. We recommend that you use the Chart View for most of your charts.
On your Dashboard you can change the period for your charts. In addition, you can edit the data shown in the charts by clicking to the left of the view selector.
