Dashboard (web part) pages - cannot add view to web part RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have created several dashboard (web part) pages, along with quite a few views. When we go to edit one of the webparts on a page, we are unable to pick the correct view as we have too many - the one we need is not listed.

    Is there a limit to the number of views a list can have? Is there another way to select the view we need for that particular web part?

    Thanks,
    Brian

  • Hi,

    Yes, the limitation to the numbers of views in the “Selected View” dropdown list is hardcoded to 50.

     

    This is by design and there is no known workaround currently.

     

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Please elaborate your question. Is your problem with web part pages or is it with the views of list ?

  • I'm assuming the question is that he has a web part that is based on a List (i.e. it's a List View Web Part) and he wants to specify the view that is to be used for that web part on that page.

    When specifying the view that is to be used you get (in Modify Web Part - as you know) a list of Views that you can select one from.

    I'm supposing that he has so many views for the List that the list of Views he is getting in Modify Web Part doesn't include all of them.

    I've never come across this but then I always have less than 20 views per List.

    ---------------------------

    I'd be interested in knowing how many Views Brian has for the lists where you is seeing this.
