View multiple level of task name in My work / task RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have many tasks that have the same name in the same project. I don't know exactly what task I have to update.

    How can I view task name in My work / task like this:

    1. Project 1
      1. Work 1
        1. Task 1
        2. Task 2
      2. Work 2
        1. Task 1
        2. Task 2
    2. Project 2
      1. Work 1
        1. Task 1
        2. Task 2
      2. Work 2
        1. Task 1
        2. Task 2

    Thanks very much

    Teach your team members to do the following on the Tasks page:
    1. In the Data section of the Tasks ribbon, click the Group By pick list and select the Custom Group By item.
    2. In the Group Fields dialog, leave the Group By item set to Period Group, and leave the first Then By set to Project.
    3. Click the second Then By pick list and select the Task Hierarchy field.
    4. Click the OK button.
    Hope this helps.

  • Hi there--

    Did you try to use Outline Number(Task) in My Assignment view in Server settings> Manage views? Each task you have the Outline Number(Task) which you can use in My Assignment view , though the task names might be same but the Outline Number(Task) will be diffent.

    Please see a similar thread:

  • Apply Group by Project and that should help you to see your tasks by Project.

  • I applied Group by Project before. And yes, I can see my tasks by Project.

    But the problem is I have many tasks with the same name in the same Project, and there's no higher level of those tasks, I cannot distinguish them.
