To configure a view, go to any list and click on "New view".
In the first step, name your view and add a short description if you want - it will be easier to identify what is presented by this view.
Step two is very important - it allows you to choose the view criteria, therefore select shown information. Click on a plus on the right side and choose the field name - it contains every data type available in the system. Then choose an operator - it will define if this criteria will show results equal to value you put on the right of the column or maybe different than that.
Next step is called grouping - you can choose how you want the results to be grouped - if you choose login, the list will show all te results for one login, then all for another and so on.
Fourth step allows you to choose columns you want to see - on the left you can see available ones and on the right the ones you've already chosen to be shown.
Last step is about visibility. You can choose if this view can be seen by everyone or just by you.
When you're done with creating the view, just click "Add" at the bottom of the page and enjoy your newly created view!
