Using List Views, when having more than 50 views

Problem:

If you want to use an app part in SharePoint and have more than 50 different views, only the first 50 will be available to select in the web part configuration pane.

Solution:

  1. select the view on the main .aspx of the list / library (here it will also work for more than 50 views)
  2. open that .aspx page with SharePoint Designer and navigate to the view .aspx (All Files – Shared Documents – Forms – …)
  3. copy the <view>….</view> part
  4. convert that to XML encoded string (there are many free online converters available)
  5. add the list / library app part to some .aspx page and EXPORT it
  6. edit the exported file with some code editor and replace the view string with the generated one
  7. save with a new name
  8. import the modified web part file and use

have fun…!
