Display a List Web Part View Using a Query String Parameter

So what if you want to have a single “dashboard” page that displays a number of web parts, including a list web part? You’d like to provide multiple links to the page which will display slightly different views of the information. In this case, you may want to think about using the view query string parameter in your links to change the view of the list web part displayed.

To get a list view GUID/s add the list web part to your page and filter the list. You can then look at the URL to find the GUID, e.g. https://server/sites/subsite/Shared%20Documents/Dashboard.aspx?View={CEF00598-91B2-456E-8068-F351BC9CC1BA}

Change the web part View property to access different view GUIDs. Once you have a GUID for each view, you can add the ? or & View={GUID} to your dashboard hyperlinks.

Click the hyperlinks and bingo-bango, you should see your list web part displays the relevant view. This should not effect any other web parts also on the page, as the view GUID is unique to the specific list.
