Overview / Work Notes

M-Files vault administrator or person with access to modify common views may want to add or remove columns in common view so that new columns are available for other users.

Solution / Workaround

Modifying columns in common view is done by opening common view and right clicking some column. By selecting "Insert column" user can add wanted column. These columns are available in user's own view until defined to be available for all users. If user in vault is administrator or has permission to modify common views, there is menu setting "Save As Common Display Settings…" available when right-clicking inside view. After selecting this, there will be dialogue asking confirmation to save current display settings as common settings for all users. Here, when selecting option "Remove all users' custom display settings in this view" makes this common view settings available for all users when they log in into the vault next time.

If this option is not selected, users have to select "Reset Display Settings to Default" and "Reset to Common Defaults" via right click inside updated common view in order to get the common view updated.
