Chapter 13: Organizing project details
IN THIS CHAPTER, YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO
▪ Sort task and resource data.
▪ Display task and resource data in groups.
▪ Filter or highlight task and resource data.
▪ Create a custom table.
▪ Create a custom view.
After you build a plan in Project, chances are you will need to examine specific aspects of
the plan for your own analysis or to share with other stakeholders . Although the built-in
views , tables , and reports in Microsoft Project 2013 provide many ways to examine a plan,
you might need to organize information to suit your own specific needs.
In this chapter, you use some of the tools in Project to control what data appears and how
it is organized. Project includes many features that enable you to organize and analyze data
that otherwise would require separate tools, such as a spreadsheet application.
PRACTICE FILES Before you can complete the exercises in this chapter, you need to copy
the book’s practice files to your computer. A complete list of practice files is provided in
“Download the practice files” at the beginning of this topic. For each exercise that has a
practice file, simply browse to where you saved the book’s practice file folder.
IMPORTANT If you are running Project Professional with Project Web App/Project Server, take
care not to save any of the practice files you work with in this topic to Project Web App (PWA). For
more information, see Appendix C, “Collaborating: Project, SharePoint, and PWA.”
