    Hey Drax, thanks for reaching out ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tags only appear on the List View, Task View and project/folder info panels. To be able to see to which project the tasks belong to, I'd suggest structuring your work a little differently. Let me show you an example.

    I have 2 projects in a folder called Email Integration. If I open this folder in the Gantt View, I will see all projects in this folder, and tasks will be under their projects, so there's no confusion:

    As you can see, the clipboard icons mean that it's a separate project, and all tasks within it are shown under the project.ย 

    Please let me know if that helps, I'll be happy to discuss further if you have any questions ๐Ÿค

    Hi Lisa,ย 

    I appreciate your response ๐Ÿ‘Š. I do have the work flow set the way you are proposing. Please see below. Each milestone under each folder is a key project milestone that we are tracking under individual projects. We have over 250 projects for which we are tracking these 12 key milestones. I have compiled all these under milestones and grouped them under metrics folder so gain more visibility. But at this point there is no way to tell what projects these milestones belong to. Are there any other options?

    Drax, thanks for getting back to me ๐Ÿ™‚ As you have so many projects to track on a single Gantt Chart, the only thing that comes to me is to add the Project's title to the Milestone's, for example: "Analytical Method Pre-Validation Complete (Project X)". I understand it's not perfect and pretty manual. Please let me know if you'd like me to raise a Support ticket for you - the team might be able to suggest a different and also a more useful solution ๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Lisa, we have already considered that solution but like you said it's not efficient for us to go back and project name as a prefix or suffix. For e.g. today we identified a need to track a specific testing task in its own folder so that we can view bottlenecks in the Gantt chart view. I did create a folder and tagged all tasks to see the bigger picture. But again, without knowing what project the tasks belong to is not that useful. Therefore, a different and more useful solution will be more helpful. Please raise a support ticket. Thank you.ย
