Every Category allows you to create Saved Views in order to visualize your data in different ways. Learn more about each of the Views inside Layer and their functionalities.

With Saved Views, you can choose from a wide variety of types that work best for your project. Then apply and save Filters, Sorting rules & On/Off switches to control what you want to see. Duplicate views for quick and easy management.

Same data, represented in as many different ways as you need.

A view can be created by clicking next to the Category's name in the main Dashboard.
