Hour 14. Optimizing the Project Plan > Identifying the Critical Path

Identifying the Critical Path

You can use any of the task views to identify the critical tasks in your project. One of the best ways to view the critical tasks is to use the filter feature and filter the task list for critical tasks when you are in the Gantt Chart view. Choose Project, Filtered, Critical from the menu.

Caution

As you rework your project and the tasks it involves, you will find that noncritical tasks can become critical and critical tasks can become noncritical. Make sure you rerun the critical task filter after you make changes to your schedule so that you are looking at the critical path's most recent version. Press Ctrl+F3 to quickly rerun the filter.
