SharePoint provides a lot of ways to show the content of a list. SharePoint Views are one of them to present the data in different manners with different columns, styles, sorting, filtering, and grouping. In SharePoint, views can be of two categories: Public and Private.
Also you can check out:
Public Views are available to every user who is a site member on the site.
Private View is available for only the user who has created that particular view.
SharePoint by default provides different types of view as Calendar View, Datasheet View, and Gantt View etc.
Datasheet View displays the items in Microsoft Excel format that allows us to copy and paste data from and into the list.
Datasheet views in SharePoint 2010 are great for performing bulk updates on list items and document properties in a library. A Datasheet view is a great way to quickly change the content type of a list item or document
Let's Process Following steps
Create a custom list definition (not a list instance) using the Visual Studio 2012 visual designer with step-by-step with screenshots.
