Creating Custom Views

Although a number of predefined views are supplied with Project, they may not meet your needs exactly. Perhaps you would prefer that the Summary table be displayed with the standard Gantt Chart instead of the Entry table. Or perhaps your boss wants to see a Gantt Chart printout containing only milestone tasks. You can create custom views from scratch, edit existing views, or create a custom view by copying an existing view that is close to what you need but not quite right. All three options are available from the View, More Views command. Project views are comprised of several components:

  • The view name, such as My Gantt Chart

  • The basic screen type for the view, such as Gantt Chart or Task Usage

  • The table of Project fields displayed; either a supplied table or one you have customized

  • The group definition to be used, if any, to see the tasks or resources in an order other than strictly by ID number

  • The filter in effect; either no filter (to show all tasks or resources), a supplied filter, or a filter you have already customized
