Filtering projects

Activity Center > Projects

Activity Center features fast and efficient filtering of projects and activities using a wide range of filters.The filters are applied as you select them, so, depending on connection speed, filtering can be very fast.


Advanced filters


To filter a list of projects:


Click the 'Advanced filters' button ().


Locate the required filter(s) and select appropriate checkboxes.


The list is updated automatically. If required, use additional checkboxes or filters.



Suppose you want to find all projects whose name contains the word 'office'.

To do so:

1. Go to Advanced filters.

2. Select 'Projects, Customers & more' tab.

3. Click 'More' under Projects.

4. Type 'office' in the search text box.

5. As you type, a list is generated of all projects whose name contains 'office'.





Quick Filtering by Name


You can generate a list of up to 10 items using text search. The items include projects, activities, assignees, priorities, etc.


To use the quick filter:


Type a text string that is part or the whole of the name of an assignee, project, activity, etc. you are looking for in the text box 'Filter by assignees, priorities, projects and more...'


A list will be generated as you pause typing.


To get more results, keep typing.



The found items are grouped into Assignees, Activities, Projects, etc. The heading of a group with an icon is shown on the right side of the list.



The list can contain up to 10 items. If you want to find ALL items of a given type, e.g. projects, whose names contain the text string you used, use the advanced filters. See Advanced filters section above.
