Creating new views
Creating new views
Nearly all work you perform in Project occurs in a view . A view might contain elements
such as tables, groups, and filters. You can combine these with other elements (such
as a timescaled grid in a usage view) or with graphic elements (such as the graphic
representation of tasks in the chart portion of the Gantt Chart view).
Project includes dozens of views that organize information for specific purposes. You might
find that you need to see your plan’s information in some way that is not available in the
predeined views. If Project’s available views do not meet your needs, you can edit an
existing view or create your own view.
The scenario: At Lucerne Publishing, you have made good use of the custom filter and table
you created previously to help you focus on editorial tasks in the new children’s book plan.
Now you’d like to combine these customizations into a custom view that you can easily
switch to whenever you like.
In this exercise, you create a new view that combines the custom filter and custom table
that you created in the previous sections.
1
On the View tab, in the Task Views group, click Other Views , and then click More
Views .
The More Views dialog box appears.
In this dialog box, you can see all the predeined views available to you.
2
Click New .
The Define New View dialog box appears. Most views occupy a single pane, but a
view can consist of two separate panes. In fact, the default view in Project is really a
two-pane view: the Gantt Chart and the Timeline.
