Switching an individual list to a new list view

If your University has already been enabled for the new list view, you may be considering your options for rollout. To understand the considerations you may wish to view Recommended steps to rollout the new list view at your University before reading this article.

This article will guide you through how to enable the new list view on individual lists.  This method is for users with the 'Configure List View' permission which is initially given via the List view admin role, however, the individual permission can be extended to an existing role, such as List Publisher.

NOTE: This is the ideal option if you want your Academics or Lecturers to decide the default view of the list.

The screenshot below shows the Try New List View button that will navigate a user to the new list view in order to change an individual list's default view when you have the permission 'Configure List View' within your roles. 


Once in the new list view access the View Config menu to View Classic or change the student view for that individual list.


Student View Statuses:

  • Tenancy default - means if you are using New List View as your default view for lists the list will display to students as New List View, however if you have not yet made that change, it will display as Classic List View, unless you choose one of the other options.
  • New List View - will enable an opt-out beta for all users of the list.  When attempting to visit the original list view, the user will automatically be redirected to the new list view. The 'View Classic' button will be available on the list, allowing the user to revert to the Classic List View if they choose.
  • Classic - will enable an opt-in beta for all users of the list.  The 'Try new list view' button will be visible in the original list view, allowing users to switch between the new and original list view options.

When Classic is default:

Students can toggle between the two list views using the Try New List View and View Classic buttons
