Applying a filter to a view

By applying a filter to a view, you specify criteria that Project uses to determine what tasks or resources should appear in that view. Project then selects information to display and either highlights the selected information or hides the rest of the information. To apply a filter and hide all other information, follow these steps:

1. Display the view that you want to filter.

2. Choose ProjectOFiltered for.

3. Choose the filter that you want from the Filtered for menu.

Because Project enables you to apply task filters to task views only and resource filters to resource views only, the Filtered for hierarchical menu shows either All Tasks or All Resources, depending on the view that you displayed before starting these steps.

To apply a filter that doesn't appear on the list, or to apply a highlighting filter, follow these steps:

1. Display the view that you want to filter.

2. Choose ProjectOFiltered forOMore Filters. Project displays the More Filters dialog box, as shown in Figure 7-30.

Figure 7-30: Use the More Filters dialog box to apply a filter that doesn't appear on the Filtered for list or to apply a highlighting filter.

Click the Task option button to select and apply a task filter; select the Resource option button to apply a resource filter.

Remember that Project doesn't let you apply a task filter to a resource view or a resource filter to a task view.

4. Select a filter name from the list.

5. Click Apply to apply the filter or click Highlight to apply a highlighting filter. If the filter that you want to apply is an interactive filter, type the requested values.

Tip To turn off a filter, choose ProjectOFiltered for. Then choose All Tasks or All

Resources, as appropriate.
