Customizing views in public folders

I would like to set a custom view (custom topic grouping and custom columns) so that everybody that accesses this public folder automatically sees this view rather than the standard view.  
I noticed an option under folder preferences on the Admin tab that seems to let you group conversations by topic.  How does that work and how do I get everybody to use the same column titles as well?

I think to do this all you need to do is make sure that
you are something like the owner of the folder.
Then create the view you want by going to the top tool
bar select view define views.

After this then right mouse click after being focused on the folder go to properties then the administration tab
and select the view you have just created to be the
default view.

I've tried this.  It doesn't seem to work.  On the Administration tab you get options like Group by Subject and so on that have nothing to do with the Views that are possible through the View menu in Outlook.  I was looking for something that would enable me to set a view, for example in Tasks, with certain column headers (like Requested by etc.) and have the folder come up like that when other users access it.  
I am not sure what these views on the Administration tab do, I didn't see any difference when I tried them.

Thanks Janet.  Didn't quite realize at first that I need to create a completely new view rather than modifying an existing one.
