How to edit a personal view in a document library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a user who has created personalized view for a document library which has some issue with one of the columns.  I am the farm admin.  How can I explore the user's personal view for that document library to troubleshoot this?

  • Hi Shonilchi,

    There is no way to convert a private view to a public view without custom code.  An admin of the list/library will need to re-create the view and set as default.

  • HI Shonilchi,

    Even though you are a farm admin you can't see someone else's personal view - this is by design (see the link below for more info). Either the other person share the screen with you or create a public view for you to look at.

  • Hi Bluesky2010,

    Thanks for the reply.  But, can that user convert his private view to a public view?  If so how?
