Quick look column in Microsoft Project for the Web!


today I will show you one new Column which is part of Microsoft Project for the Web: Quick look.

As always, I will create new Project and I will get:


As you can see, this new Column is placed right beside Name Column by default. Now I will ad one Task:


As you can see, Quick Look is empty. And you cannot put a value in it like, for example, typing a text. This column is read only!

I will attach a document for this Task:


and after I choose a file which I want to attach I will have:


As you can see, my attachment is shown, and I also added a simple comment to the Task.

So I have:


If I hoover my mouse on Quick look field, I will get:




If I click on Note or Attachment, I will in both case get Task Detail screen opened:


I found this column very useful. Why? Because without it, I should open Task Detail Screen for each and every Task for which I want to check if there is a note or attachment for it. With this new column I see it right away!
