Views: Working with schedule details the way you want
In this exercise, you’ll start at the Gantt Chart view and then switch to other views that focus
on different aspects of a plan.
On the View tab, in the Zoom group, click the down arrow next to the Timescale box
and click Days .
Project adjusts the timescale to show individual days. Nonworking days, such as
weekends, are formatted in light gray.
You can adjust the timescale to change how
much of your plan is visible in the chart portion.
A Gantt chart view includes
this table portion...
...and this chart
You can adjust the timescale in the Gantt Chart view in several ways. Here, you
used the Timescale box on the View tab. You can also use the Zoom Slider in the
lower-right corner of the status bar.
Next, you’ll display a view that is a handy way of seeing the “big picture” of the plan.
On the View tab, in the Split View group, select the Timeline check box.
Project displays the Timeline view in the pane above the Gantt Chart view.
This Timeline view has been populated for you with some details from the plan. You’ll
create a custom Timeline view in Chapter 7.
