5.13 Changing the Folder View

Novell Vibe enables you to change the view of a folder. For example, if you are viewing your Calendar folder in the default Calendar view, you can change the view to the Tasks folder view. You can also change the default view of the folder, so no other options are available to those who want to view the folder.

Anyone who has access to a folder can change the view of the folder, if the folder owner or someone with appropriate rights has configured the folder to allow alternate folder views.

If you are the owner of a folder and you want to allow alternate views on a folder, or if you want to change the default view of a folder, see Managing Folder Views in the Novell Vibe OnPrem 3.1 Advanced User Guide.

To change the view of a folder after the folder owner has configured it to support alternate folder views:

  1. Navigate to the folder where you want to change the view.

  2. Click Folder > Folder Options in the Action toolbar.

    The Folder Options dialog box is displayed.

  3. In the View Options section, select the view that you want the folder to be displayed as, then click OK.

    The folder view is changed to the view that you specified.
