You can configure the Lightning Conductor app part to display one view of the data or multiple views. Multiple Views allow you to display content from different data sources or the same data source within the same instance of the app part, so that you do not have to add multiple instances of the app part on the same page. It is common to use views to display data from the same data source, such as, all tasks within a site collection, and apply different filters, for example, All Tasks, My Tasks and My Overdue Tasks. The view that is used when the App Part is first rendered is the default view, and has an icon Default View icon to the left of its name.

Multiple Views

You can then subsequently create additional views. View names can be changed on the App Part tab of the Configure Lightning Conductor App dialog.
