The new List View is great.

But there's no option to share it, as there is with every other view.

Can this functionality be added?

Particularly hoping for the embed function to be enabled...

List elements can be shared as part of an Interface, but you're correct that at this time we don't allow sharing of List views directly.

Why is this??  And why is the list view unavailable for any automations???
My clients say they miss the spreadsheet we used to use because the formatting was so much more compact, clean and organized.  The list view is the closest formatting option I can create in Airtable to resemble a spreadsheet. We assemble hundreds of project records for our renovation design clients (homeowners), so we are working B2C, not B2B or sharing internally.  I know we are not the only service business in the world that serves individual consumers as clients, not other businesses or internal teams.  We've been struggling for years to find a tool where we can quickly collect product and material information for our client projects that we can share a live view schedule of materials with both our homeowner clients as well as the General Contractor on the project.  Most all other industry-specific software are awkward, too rigid and only designed for one type of business model or missing huge functions.  We chose Airtable for the main reason that we can manipulate the records any way we please, utilize tons of automations and integrations and link records to create our own master database.

Airtable is wonderful and powerful, but most shared views look bulky and clunky compared to the clean-formatted spreadsheets we used to use.  I know we can set up automations to send the data back to a spreadsheet for our clients to view, but that is a lot of redundant work that defeats the purpose of Airtable instead of spreadsheets.

Sharing and embedding Airtable Views is such an obviously useful feature? Why introduce a new View Type without that ability?
