[Status: Launched! ๐Ÿš€] Filter Presets for Gantt Chart

Pinned

Hello!

With my Gantt chart, I want to quickly visualize what tasks pertain to certain departments by filtering the view to only include tasks related to those departments.

I've added a custom field for "department".

I'd like to start with the unfiltered Gantt view so that we can see where the project is, and then apply a filter pre-set to the Gantt view so the tasks relevant to any given department are highlighted.

This will greatly help both our Sr. Management team in seeing where the workload is distributed among departments as well as to the individual teams responsible for accomplishing those tasks.

If your Admin properly sets up Groups based on the departments, than you can use the Assignee Filter to select that group/department in all views including Gantt Chart.

Thanks Meredith for your reply,

I agree that filtering of the Gantt Chart can be accomplished. The feature I feel is missing is the ability to save that filter for later use. For example, when filtering the "List" or the "Board" view, I can save that filter and it will appear in my "Filter Presets". This is extremely convenient for filters that will be re-used often. See the example of the "Aaron Source" filter I've saved for repeated use.

For some reason the Filter Preset option is not also available on the Gantt Chart and I think adding it would be super helpful.

 

Thanks again for your comment.

Hi Josh Hanks, I'm happy to hear you're happy! :)

To be clear, it's not always like that - although our team would love to implement most of the suggestions on this forum, they still have to prioritize, so there are ideas on this Community that are yet not planned for development. But this one is! Again, thanks a lot for your feedback! Please stay tuned for updates - I'd recommend checking our Weekly Release forum: the Community team posts a note there every week on Mondays with all major product improvements (https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/115000360569-Weekly-Release-Notes).
