- Refresh - If context items of your view have updated since your view was opened, or new context items have been added to your view in the meantime, you can refresh the content using this option.
- Save - Save any changes made to your view by clicking this option.
- Save As - Once you have created a view through your filter selection, be sure to save your view by using this option. You will be prompted to enter a name, description and a desired location for your view, afterwards you can click on “save view” and the view will be saved.
