Add a list

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change.]

A list is a data-driven configuration used to render a list of records without the need for a developer to surface the grid in the portal. Lists use Dataverse views to display records on the portal.

A list displays data in a grid view on Power Pages sites. Lists on pages are created from Dataverse table views. Dataverse table views can be created by using the Data workspace or from model-driven apps created in Power Apps. You can use them on pages or with forms to build a complete web application.
