How and when to enable paging of List View displays
You can allow users to page through list view displays through settings on the Organize tab of the List View form.
However, scanning through lists is error-prone and slow. Through better understanding of user's needs for information and tasks, you can design focused, short reports that let them directly access needed information.
To enable paging, follow instructions in the Help file topic "List View form -- Completing the Organize tab."
However, it's rarely in anyone's best interest for users to page through lists. That is not how the best designed applications present data to elicit the best job of processing the data.
Users performing such paging are less productive by having to interpret and select from among the pages. Some users counteract the intent of business rules by selecting less urgent work, personal favorites, or easy tasks from distant pages.
Therefore, in designing applications, explore what can be done to automate the work itself and automate the selection of work, rather than simply display lists from which users are to select work.
Research whether list data can be counted and grouped by one or multiple properties (using summary view reports) - before it is presented. If so, the subsequent lists are naturally shorter, as the entire result set has been divided first by its grouping(s).
This can be especially useful for manager's reports, which are more for the purpose of overview than of selecting the "right" work to perform.
