  • To get all the tasks to not show up under my tasks we need to implement the following process:

    1.       Open the project in MS Project Professional

    2.       Add column and select the field “Publish”

    3.       Set all the fields in the “Publish” column to “No”

    4.      Save and publish project

    No, there is no way for team members to filter by projects on the My Tasks page using any of the default features in Project Server 2007.  On the other hand, our company sells a cool little custom Web part called the My Tasks Pager that does what you require.  You can download a free trial or purchase this custom Web part, along with many custom Web parts at:

    Look through the list of Project Server 2007 custom Web parts and I think you will find at least a few others that will "tame" the My Tasks page for your PMs.  Hope this helps.

    That sounds like a lot of work for your PMs.  But if that's what you want to do, go for it, my friend!  :)
