List View | Online Help - Bigin by Zoho CRM

Manage List View

List view allows you to group records present in your Bigin account based on a specific criteria. Viewing all the records without any order will be hard for you to pull the required record immediately. For example, you may want to view the contacts that were added last week, to carry-out activities or create campaigns for them. It's not possible to manually check if the record was added that week and create an activity. That's where list view helps in pulling those records that you need. You can send bulk email, add/remove tags, update field, change owner, Delete or export the records from list view. You can also mark a list view as favourite by simply clicking the star next to the view.



The list views are of two types:
Standard list views and Custom list views.
  • Standard List Views: Bigin offers certain pre-defined views based on the modules. You cannot edit the standard list views available.  
  • Custom List Views: You can create a list view of your choice in your Bigin account. These views can be edited or deleted if needed. 
Categories in list view
The views in your Bigin account can be categorized into three:
  • Favourites - The list views that you have marked as favourites will be displayed here.
  • Created by me - The list views that you have created will be displayed.
  • Shared with me - The list views that are shared with you by your fellow users will be displayed here.
The footer section displays the following:
  • Total Contacts in the module
  • Contacts with open deals
  • Contacts without open deals
  • Untouched contacts
The records drop-down list allows you to select the maximum number of records to be displayed in the page. Click the > button to move to the next page.

Create Custom Views

At times, the standard views offered, may not suite your requirement. in that case, you can create a custom view based on your needs. You can share the views that you have created. 

To create custom views
  1. Go to the module of your choice.
  2. Click the view drop-down and select + Create View.

  3. In the create window, do the following:
    • Specify a Name for the view

  4. Specify who can access the view you have created.
    You can choose from:
    • Only Me - Only you will be able to use the list view created
    • All Users - All users in your Bigin account can use the list view
