Chapter 9. Outlook Essentials > Using Custom Views to Display Information

Using Custom Views to Display Information

Outlook uses forms to display the data in individual items. To see groups of items within a folder, you use views. By default, every Outlook folder includes a selection of built-in views available to all folders containing that item type. For specific tasks, create custom views to sort, filter, and group items as required.

Using Views to Display, Sort, and Filter Items

Every folder starts with a default view. For example, when you first open the Calendar folder, you see today's appointments alongside a list of tasks; you can switch to Recurring Appointments view to see a list of all recurring items, grouped according to whether they repeat Daily, Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly. Likewise, items in the Contacts folder appear by default as address cards with minimal details, but you can choose to see more detailed cards or a simple Phone List view with one contact per row instead.
