I created a webpart from an announcement list (Add Announcement List > Open in Designer > Copy to file > Import webpart to page) and display this webpart above main datasheet data list. Users want to create custom views from the data list (Below the webpart) but cannot do so now as when I am on the page I have to select the webpart tickbox (as if deleting announcement from it) so that the list ribbon (with list settings/customise form etc.) shows up and this only gives me the option to modify the webpart, not the data list, where a user would want to create a new data view for example.
How can I set the data list to be able to show list ribbon related to it and be able to create new data list views from it? It seems like because the webpart is at the top of the page (but below ribbon) it only give me options to manipulate that. The webpart is listed as a list but it is derived from a list, however I do not want it to be a list now if I can help it. Hope that makes some sense
Interested to hear your thoughts on this...
