Let’s recall this feature in NAV.
First open any list page (Customer Ledger Entries), set one or more new filters you want to save.

Click “Save View As…”

Enter a “Name” and “Activity Group”, then click “OK”

After you restart your windows client. You can find the view you created.

It is a very useful feature that you can save your frequently used filters, and can switch at any time.
Fortunately, this feature was added to Business Central in the previous version.

We can use PageExtension to add new view in Visual Studio Code.

                Caption = 'Add From Visual Studio Code';
                Filters = where("Posting Date" = filter('200201..200331'),
                        "Customer No." = const('20000'),
