Create a summary task for filtered tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use Project Professional 2013.

    I imported a project plan from MS Excel with tasks that are in three categories, i.e. building, painting and plumbing. There are multiple dependencies between many of the tasks.

    I would like to create a summary task for each category so that I can see the % complete of the category.

    I can't do this by filtering on category name and indenting. I also can't add the summary task in MS Excel before importing the data, as I'd then need to manually renumber all the row dependencies.

    If it isn't possible to create a summary task for filtered tasks, what would be a good way to show progress of each category?

  • Hi,

    assuming that "category" is the custom name of a custom field ...

    You can add a Group für this field: View - Group by - New Group. In this new group, add you category field as "Group By".

    Does that work?
