Customizing Views in MS PROJECT 2010 – Part 2.



in my previous Post I have explained how to copy one View to another, and make a customization. Notice that are two different types of View in MS PROJECT 2010: Single View, and Combination View. Example of Single View is Gantt Chart, and example od Combination View is Task Entry:


Now I will show how to create a Brand new View:


and then:


So, I will create the Combination View:


and I will get:


But what if I want that My Sample Combination View has customized portion.

If you red my previous Post you will recall that I made customized Gantt Chart View:


I will make a custom Resource Usage View:


and I will get:


Now I will change My Sample Combination View:


and I will get:


Notice that in my upper portion of the Screen I have My Gantt Chart with filter applied, and in the lower part of the Screen I have My Resource Usage View with Cost Table applied.

OK! Since I don’t need those examples any more I will delete them. First I will close all Custom Views in a way that I am going to choose any other View except one I want to delete (in my example I will choose regular Gantt Chart):


Now I am going to Organizer:


Here I choose to delete those Views from my current Project.

Since I will not need those Views in a future, I will erase them Global template:


Notice that when you erase something from Global template, it is gone forever.

    Hi Nenad,
    Why on GANTT CHART view it shows calendar that I’ve defined (saturday is a working days) but when I choose TRACKING GANTT it always shows the standard calendar (saturday is not working day)?
    TQ& Regards,
