Sub Views

Sub views offer a way to select and navigate between different views. You can add additional sub views to the dropdown by personalizing the UWL display.

You can see any personalized sub views in the dropdown selection even if there are no work items in them.

For sub views created by customization of XML files, you can see only those sub views in the navigation which have work items in them.


When you create sub views the system determines whether there are additional views with the similar supported item types and which have items assigned to the user. In this case the views are then dynamically added to the sub view. These views can be custom views created by customer and business partners or automatically created views when registering alert items. The system creates one view per alert category. There is a limit of seven dynamically added views per user for performance reason. You can overwrite this limit in the iView property Maximum number of Dynamic views to be added.
