Overview of views and displays
Each view consists of a query and a form. The query defines the data for the view, and the form defines how to present the data. When you request a view, the view's query executes against the data that the associated MainView product collects. The extracted data is then processed through the form template to configure the data's appearance in the view.
Each MainView product provides a variety of views or displays, but you can also create customized views. You can save customized views in a personal data set (unless disabled by your site administrator), or in a site data set to be shared by everyone.
