At present, there is no way to access a custom view for a Sharepoint list. Our Connector is built to import every field that it can import from the underlying List to allow the analyst to leverage Paxata's Data Prep features on the raw column data.
- One issue with this approach is the complexity of the "Title" column. When renamed, we do not receive the column correctly from the Sharepoint server. Thus, the recommendation not to rename the column.
Soon, we'll be releasing a new "Sharepoint List" Connector specifically built to handle many of the situations that we have encountered with our Sharepoint power users. This will include the ability to import either the complete column set or to select a named view.
