Summary views are a great way to combine several projects into one space. It's especially useful for managers and other people who want to take a look at the big picture across the team.
To create a summary view:
- Go to the Project Navigator
- Click Summary Views
3. Click the link '+Create new summary view'
4. It should open a new window, where you can select the settings for your summary view. These include:
- Project name
- View type - Status, Team, Calendar, Label, and Gantt
- The people you want to see (you will only see the tasks assigned to the people you select)
- The labels you want to see
- The projects you want to include
- Permission - Define who is able to see the summary view. (you can share with everyone, specific people, or just keep it private to yourself.)
5. Select Done
It will open a new tab with your view.
Updating Summary view
To edit, hide or delete the view, just click the summary view and you will see the menu below.
Filtering Summary View
Click the 'Show filters' option in the Summary View menu.
This will open up a list of drop downs, where you can select how your Summary view is filtered. You can filter by:
- Created by
You can also sort by priority and reveal actions that you have archived.
Any filters you set will only apply to your view. So when a member of your team goes to that summary view, they won't see the filters you have set.
