List: Duplicate Layout

Who can use this feature?

👤  Available on all plans.

You can duplicate list views to create nested menu items in your navigation. This lets you create multiple views of the same data. You can then tailor the view to different types of users, or divide records based on certain conditions.

Duplicate a layout

  1. Click the table you want to duplicate
  2. Click Edit Layout
  3. Click the page icon next to the layout's name
  4. Enter a new layout name. The name will show in the navigation item, the list title and the URL of your new list page

Edit a duplicated view

When you duplicate a layout, you will see the new layout as a nested menu item. Each list layout is independent, so you can tailor the duplicate to your needs without affecting other layouts.
 
In our Property app we have created a duplicate layout for our teams table. On the first layout we want to show the user's profile and on the second layout we want to show the whole team.

To make these views different, we can set the display type of My Profile to one record view. We can then set a conditional filter so that the record only shows to the current logged in user. 
 
We will check that this works by previewing as users.

For the Teams layout we can leave the layout as it is so the user can have access to all the team members when clicking that view.

Considerations

  • You can create different list layouts. They show in your navigation bar as nested items..
  • Each list layout can have different filters, displays etc.
  • You can have only one "Record detail" page per table. If you have multiple nested layouts, they will still use the same detail page.
