A new view API for developers

Developers have a new, simple, and intuitive model to build custom list views in Visual Studio Code for the modern clients. Not only does it empower developers to create alternate views of a list with each their own custom column layout, but the new views also overcome most of the shortcomings with the earlier model. For example, views now appear on a list page irrespective of how you navigate to it.

Saving and personalizing list views

In the April '19 update to Business Central, business users cannot adjust filters and save their changes as a new view of the list. This feature has been moved to the Dynamics 365 Business Central 2019 Wave 2 release plan.
