A view represents a view folder as seen in the M-Files client application. The view can be thought of as a "named search" whose results can be displayed hierarchically. Basically, a view consists of two fundamental and important factors. First, each view has a set of conditions that determines which objects can be seen in the view. This is the "filter" of the view. Second, the view may define one or more "hierarchy levels". Each hierarchy level is an expression. The hierarchy-level expressions determine how the objects that fulfill the conditions of the view are divided into subfolders.
