It would be useful to have the list of views in the Designer client either display the "Last Indexed" date or the "Last Accessed" date, which are already stored and accessible in the properties, in a column, so that it is easier to determine which views are no longer used and most deserving of deletion. Some of my older databases had views created which ended up only being used for a short time and it would be nice to see more easily that so you could remove them.
I think "Last Accessed" is new, because I don't remember that being available before....

Views are indexed very frequently. Imagine you edit or add a document in the current view and its index is instantly updated to reflect the change.
Now only the last modified date is shown, not the accessed date which also changes too frequently to be shown.

Starrow, the information is displayed if you look at the view properties in the Designer client (info tab). The display is that information is not updated "live". That is, if someone accesses the view or re-indexes the view while I have the Info tab of the View's properties open, the date/time displayed remains the same even though the value is different. In fact, changing tabs doesn't allow it to update either. Only if you switch from the list of views to a different design element list and come back, prompting the Designer client to refresh the data.

To test how this works with the last modified date, open the list of views in your Designer client and have a friend update one of the views. You will note that in YOUR client, the date/time is not updated until you "refresh" the list (just as adding a document to a view one someone else's machine doesn't display in the view on your own machine until you refresh the view).

So, despite the fact that the last indexed or last accessed data might change very frequently, the display of that information would only be updated when the user "refreshes" the list of design elements.
