Can views save cost instead of normal read query?

If I am having thousands of records in my collection, say from (2020-2023), but I only need to query records for 2023 only. Is using ‘views’ help to save reading cost instead of using normal read query from the collection itself? Currently, I am using normal retrieval query with pagination, and I am thinking if I can optimize this further to save cost.

Views are resolved at query time, so no, it won’t speed up your query. Having correct indexes should speed it up though.


Thank you very much for your insights!
