Drupal Enterprise 7, 8: Remove Criteria from an Existing Automated List (aka View)
View displays have three categories of criteria for generating an automated list: Filter criteria, Sort criteria, and Display criteria. Some of these criteria get inherited when a new display is created but should be absent from that display. You can add and remove criteria for a display as desired.
These instructions are for removing criteria from a display. They are for websites using either the default UMN Drupal Enterprise 7 (DE7) configuration or the default UMN Drupal Enterprise 8 (DE8) configuration.
