Show more or all views in a classic view SharePoint list

ViewCount

By default, you’ll see 3 views in a SharePoint list. Using simple javascript, we can make sure our users see that fourth or fifth view as well, reducing the number of clicks it takes for them to get to the data they need.

Save the Scripts to your Site Assets

You’ll need a separate script in your site assets file for each number of views. I would recommend having multiple scripts in your Site Assets ready to be used at any time. That way if you add a view later, you just have to change the last number in your CEWP’s script field to update it. Just download the files you want and save them to your site’s Site Assets folder.

Alternatively, you can follow the directions below to create your own javascript files using SharePoint Designer. Just change the “5” in the script to the number of views you want to show and make sure your filename number matches. Skip to the next section if you just downloaded and saved the scripts.

  1. From within SharePoint Designer, click Site Assets

  4. Right-click the new file, and then click Edit File in Advanced Mode

  5. Paste the following script and save the file
    <script type="text/javascript">
    ExecuteOrDelayUntilScriptLoaded(overrideSurfacePivotCount, 'clienttemplates.js');
    
    function overrideSurfacePivotCount() {
     ClientPivotControl.prototype.SurfacedPivotCount = 5;
    };
    </script>

  6. Get the URL for your script (i.e. /SiteCollection/SiteAssets/view-count-5.js). Here’s how to do that in SharePoint Designer:
    1. Right-click script –> Properties
      2017-09-12_08-16-00
    2. Copy URL
