Views has three basic options that every View must have.

Each view must have a unique name. The name is used to identify the view to Drupal; the name of a view can be important if your view is overriding a default view, and is also used for theming. Your name should not contain spaces or punctuation other than _.
You can control which roles have access to the view. Simply check which roles apply. If no roles are checked, all roles will have access. Make sure to uncheck "access all views" for anonymous (or other role) in the admin/user/access page, otherwise this won't work.
The description of the view will only be shown on the view administration page, and is simply a reference to what the view actually does. You may put anything you like here.
