I have several views that display data from the same content type, Customer.
I had to decide whether the view should display the teaser and format the teaser in a custom node--customer.tpl.php or to use Views ability to specify exact fields and format those. I decided to use Views to format the fields (under Format->Show->Fields) based on the preference to configure rather than code.
However, I don't want to duplicate this field formatting for each view that needs to display customers. Is there a way to reuse the field formatting configuration from one view in a another? (besides cloning the entire view) And is there a way to keep them in sync?
