Salesforce Lightning: Create and Customize List Views

List View


List views allow you to see a filtered list of records, such as contacts, accounts, or custom objects. For example,  you can customize list views to only see a certain type of opportunity, lead, account, contact, campaign, dashboard, or even a custom object.
