Custom filters

Custom Filters in Microsoft Project

To create your own custom filters, select the View tab of the Ribbon and then filters. In the filters area, select New filter, and in the presenting dialogue box, type your criteria. In the video, the tutor demonstrates how to create two custom filters. The first filter searches for tasks that are over 75% complete, the second filter compares the Actual Cost field against the baseline cost field.

Display in Menu

When a new filter is added to the filter list, there is an option to have it displayed in the menu. When this option is selected it appears at the top of the filter list, above built-in filters.

Delete a Custom filter

There are no options to delete a customisation from the filter list. To delete a custom filter that is no longer required, select the More Views or More Tables option on the View tab of the Ribbon. Once selected, select the Organizer option. In the organizer, select the Filter tab. The filter tab displays two screens, the right side is the current document, the left the Global documents. Delete from both areas if required.
