Business value

The April 2019 release of Business Central introduced a new way to implement filtered list views that makes them available across form factors, and empowers business users to easily create, modify, hide, show, reorder, and remove views from the web client. Customers benefit from all of these capabilities when using views created using this newer model.

Feature details

Legacy views are list views that were created by developers in previous versions of Business Central by placing them on the role center page. Business Central displays legacy views side by side with modern views directly on the list page, but legacy views offer a degraded experience and fewer options compared to modern views.

Starting with 2023 release wave 2 (version 23.0), which is currently targeting Q3 of calendar year 2023, legacy views will no longer be supported and won't be displayed on list pages.

You can already experience this change in 2022 release wave 2 (version 21.0) by enabling Legacy list views are hidden in the Feature Management page in Business Central.
