Workbench keeps recreating system views for Ref views I already have. I dont want the system automatically creating views I neither need nor want, nor do I want them cluttering-up and confusing my configuration. Especially of concern: will AppSheet ever display an auto-generated view instead of my own?

@Steven_Coile, is this something that changed recently (this week)?

In general, the app will use the ref views you created ahead of the ones created by the system.

You should be able to collapse out the system views and never see them if they are getting in the way.

The general idea is that going forward, you should never really need to create Ref views because you can edit/modify the system-generated views.

@praveen This is recent behavior, yes.

@praveen What I dislike about this new approach to views is the clutter, and no way to distinguish my views–that are critical to my app–from all the other, unused, superfluous views. If I don’t use the system views at all, at least I can hide the views I’m not using. Except that annoying blue dot that refuses to go away…
