    First ,
    Not all webpart are connection enabled , so yo must apply the following to web parts that has (Allow connections set to true)

    - Add the two web parts  to the same page.
    - Confirm both have the Enable / Allow connections set.

    From the First one, where you want to send values , Edit the properties from the Modify webpart section - > set , the [Send values to ] and pick the second webpart views.

    You will find webparts like Text filters and list filters along with list views are good starting point.
    Best of luck.
