Create a Filter for Resource Booking Type

If you're using Project Professional, you might have added certain resources to your project as proposed resources. You can create a filter to find just proposed resources or just committed resources. Creating such a filter can be particularly helpful when you're finalizing your project team or the task assignments.

To create a filter for a booking type, follow these steps:

1 Click Project, Filtered For, More Filters.

2 In the More Filters dialog box, select the Resource option and then click New.

3 In the Name box, type a descriptive name for the filter; for example, Proposed Resources or Committed Resources.

4 Select the Show In Menu check box.

5 Click in the first row of the Field Name column and then type bo to scroll quickly through the list of fields. Click Booking Type.

6 Click in the Test column and then click Equals.

7 Click in the Value(s) column and then click Proposed or Committed.

8 Click OK.

Your new filter appears in the More Filters dialog box.

9 Click Apply or Highlight to apply your new filter to the current view. Otherwise, click Close.

Any time you want to apply your new filter to a resource view, click Filter on the Formatting toolbar and then click Proposed or Committed.
