Hide Project Names in Gantt View

Greetings, I would like the ability to filter project names in the gantt view so that I can see all tasks assigned by a particular resource and create dependencies based on their tasks.
I am new to Wrike, coming from Microsoft Project, and the feature in MPP was called "Show/Hide Project Summary Task" Or "Show/Hide Summary Task" .

Anyone able to do this in Wrike? Am I missing something?

Hi Jason Nehez, welcome to the Community! 🙂

Do I understand correctly that you'd like to filter the chart by certain project attributes like project owners? In that case, you can use the filters and filter by various project or task attributes:

Sorry if I misunderstood; I'll be happy to discuss further 🙌

Lisa, thank you for the response! I apologize I think maybe my initial post was not very clear. Either way, tech support was able to help with a work around. 

In an attempt to better describe what I needed - I have a kind of project of projects(Master Project). Therefore, I have one project that contains hundreds of projects and thousands of tasks. After using the filtering as you described above I would be shown the tasks owned by a certain person but all of the project names would still be shown. So if a particular person had 8 tasks, I'd be shown those 8 tasks and all 100+ project names. In Microsoft project you could toggle a button that would hide these "project" or summary task names after filtering making balancing of an individual resource very easy. 

The workaround that tech support provided, that will work for my purposes for now, was to create a new folder(lets call it Leveling Gantt) and add all the tasks to that folder(independently of the projects). I did this by going into list few of my project of projects(Master Project), selected "show tasks in subfolders", then hit the select all button and added to the new folder(Leveling Gantt). Now within that folder(Leveling Gantt) I can use filters without seeing project names and any adjustments I make affect the projects they are in (since they 'exist' in 2+ places at once so to speak).
