In many cases you need to get the Id of a SharePoint List or a View. Typically you browse to the settings page of the List or View and make it out of the encoded URL - cumbersome. Or you can use my PowerShell Scripts as follows:
- >$list = get-splist -webUrl http://localhost/mywebsite -listName "My List"
At this point you've got the Id of the List. Now get the Ids of the Views:
- $list.Views format-table -property title, id
Thanks for your attention and bye,
