Hi fellow users,
I have a large SharePoint list. I have created few custom views to share with other departments.

My question is about custom view specific permissions. Say, user1 to have permissions to have read access on “view A” but not to other saved views. Similarly user2 to have permissions to have read access on “view B” but not other saved views.

Any hint is highly appreciated.

Thanks
C1

If you are using SharePoint on-premise version or classic pages/lists in SharePoint online then you can set Target Audiences on list view. That might help you to achieve this. Check below video link for step by step explanation:

SharePoint Views with Audience Targeting 

 

If you are trying to achieve this in SharePoint online/2019 modern experience then currently there is no way to limit list view access based on user permissions.

I am  using the SharePoint online. I hope they bring this lovely feature back.

I understand with SharePoint online list views, we can't control permissions. 

 

But, can I email a link of a view, to a specific person? I don't want others to see that view because there are few confidential columns made visible.

 

Thanks

Sending a link of specific list view via email will not restrict user from seeing other list views. If user knows how to switch the list view in SharePoint online then they can switch and see other list views from view selection dropdown:

 User can switch the list views even via List web part added on site page (I have tried this before).
