I will explain Views in MS PROJECT 2010 PROFESSIONAL! First I will create an example. I have a Project with four Tasks:
and four Resources:
and those Resources are assigned to Tasks:
OK! This is Gantt Chart. In standard Gant Chart you can see data like in a picture above. But why? Where are those fields come from.
You can edit this View to get an answer to this question:
and I will get:
- Name: The name of the View
- Table: The Table showed in the View
- Group: How the data is grouped
- Filter: Which Filter is applied
Now I will make brand new view from the Gant Chart. Firs I will create new Filter:
Now I will make the new view:
And I will get:
Only Task 3, and Task 4 are displayed because they have Cost greater then $2.000.
If I apply “normal” Gant Chart with Cost Table I will get:
Now I will change My Gantt Chart in a way that I will check Highlight Filter:
and I will get:
You can see, that I get all task, but those with Cost greater then $2.000 are highlighted!
OOOPS! Guys I put My Gant Chart instead of My Gantt Chart. I will change the name very Simply:
And I’ll get:
I will close MS PROJECT 2010, and reopen it again:
As you can see, My Gant Chart is here. Why? Because of this:
Notice that when Automatically add new views, tables, filters, and groups to the global is checked, any new view, table, etc. added in one project will reflect to all Projects in the future. If you want to make a custom View, Table, etc. only for current Project, remove this check mark!
In my next Blog I’ll show you how to create and modify more complex Views!
