To view focussed metadata based on the content present in the folder, iManage Work supports the option to toggle between Document or Email view focus in a folder.

The toggle option also has a third view - Automatic view, which is the default view for the folder - Document view for a normal folder and, Email view for an email folder if the email class or email address or, both are configured in the folder's properties.

The filters and sort options available for a folder switch based on the view applied to that folder. 

The view set by you for a folder is persisted across all folders in iManage Work and remains the same across browser sessions unless changed by you.
