How to apply same filter on different tables in MS PROJECT 2019


today I will show you how to apply same filter only once, and use different tables in MS PROJECT 2019.

First, I’m going to create a simple Project:


and I will create Resources needed for the Project:


Finally I will assign Resources to Tasks:


Finally I will save the Baseline:




Now I want to see some information for all John’s Tasks.

I will apply filter:


and I will get:


Now let’s say that I want to see Cost, and Work Tables for John. I have two possibilities.

First one is to leave this filter on, and just jump to the Cost and Work Table:


and the result is:


For the Work Table, the result is:


Advantage of this approach is that you have to set filter only once, and no matter which table will you choose, the result will be shown for that file which was applied on another table. Disadvantage is that you do not see filter on other tables (in my example, Cost and Work), and when you want to switch this filter off, you should go to the original table like this:


Second possibility is to add a column on each table on which you want to apply filter like this:


Now you can apply filter like I did (shown on few pictures above).

Advantage of this approach is that you see filters on each and every table. Disadvantage is that you have to put column on the screen for every table you want to see, and apply filter, and than apply that filter.

BUT! No matter which approach you will take, when you apply filter on one Table it will be shown on any other table which you will look at. And, if you save your project with filter turned on, when you, ore someone else open the same Project again, the filter remains applied.
