Filter using a text field

Question:     

Let’s say I import my entire schedule from Project.  Can I filter on a value in one of my columns so that only the tasks I want are displayed?  I need to switch between views of 4 different teams without have to do the import separately for each team.

 

Answer:

This is easy by using the Filter Tool.

First select a column on the Milestones Schedule.  Then:

  1. Choose Filter Task Rows on the Tools tab.

  2. Choose Column Text Containing... from the list

  3. On the first row of the Column Text Filter Selection dialog box, choose Includes: and enter the text, for example Alpha.

  4. Click OK.  Save the filter.
