Yeeflow allows you to create different data views of a data list, depending on your needs and preferences. A data view is a way of displaying or filtering your data in a specific format. For example, you can create a list view to see your data in rows and columns, a gallery view to see your data as cards with images and text, a calendar view to see your data as events on a calendar, or a kanban view to see your data as cards organized by stages. You can also create custom views using filters, sorts, groups, and more. Views help you to organize and analyze your data in various ways without changing the underlying structure of your data structure.

Yeeflow offers seven types of data views. Each view has individual settings, like permissions and filters. Based on predefined criteria, list data can be represented from different aspects.
