How to Create a List View in Salesforce Lightning Experience

Create a List View in Salesforce Lightning Experience

ListView allows you to see a filtered list of records, such as contacts, accounts, or custom objects. In list views, you can only see the data that you have access to. You see records that you own or have read or write access to, and records shared with you. List views also include records owned by or shared with users in roles below you in the role hierarchy. You can see only the fields that are visible according to your page layout and field-level security settings. The steps below are for Lightning Experience.

NOTE: If you see the App Launcher icon (

) on the left side of the navigation bar at the top of your screen, you're in Lightning Experience. If you don’t see that, then you're in Salesforce Classic.
