Create Custom view for SharePoint (2013) List | Manipulate Schema.xml

There may be many ways of creating views for SharePoint list, but following method would be most easiest and consistent way of achieving it as I found out.

Create a new list or in an existing list,  find the “view” tab. And create new view as your desired.

Go to schema.xml of the considered list on the solution.

Include your fields as below in the <ViewFields> XML parent.

<FieldRef Name="LinkTitle"></FieldRef>
<FieldRef Name="Date1" />
<FieldRef Name="Update" />
<FieldRef Name="Details" />
<FieldRef Name="Status" />
<FieldRef Name="Resolved1" />
<FieldRef Name="ResolutionDate" />
<FieldRef Name="ConfidenceLevel" />
<FieldRef Name="PHC" />

If there is any filtering in data; you can include those filtering there.

<FieldRef Name="ID"></FieldRef>

<FieldRef Name="Author"/>
<Value Type="Integer">
<UserID Type="Integer"/>
