In the View selector (located just above the table on all dashboards, reports and specifications) you can choose from different templates. If you're creating a budget, for example, then select the Budget view. If you're working on quarterly reports, select Quarter or Quarters etc.The Standard views are all standard "templates" that you can easily adjust and update over time. To the right of the View selector you can use the sliders on the timeline to select the right period.To the left you can edit the content of the standard views by clicking on the sign. You can also edit the Views from the menu on the left-hand side.
The quickest way by far to understand the content in Views is to go to e.g. Reports >> Profit & Loss, select a View, open the panel of options by clicking on the sign and then selecting/deselecting check marks in the different boxes. Don't worry, you can't break anything when you're working with Views - it's all about what you choose to show in the different columns in the table data and all the calculations are made elsewhere in the system.
Here is a list of the different standard views and an explanation for each of them:
