Tips&Tricks: How to show projects that have subtasks this week




Question: How can I see only projects that have subtasks with due dates this week?


Solution: A hierarchy filter comes in handy for this. But how to use it?


Probably, your first thought would be to open the standard 'Projects' view and set a hierarchy filter for the child items. It seems logical, but in this case all(!) projects would be shown: projects that have the required subtasks, and projects that do not. In our case, we want to show only the projects with subtasks scheduled for this week.


How to set up

1. Use the main filter to find tasks that have a due date on or before this week.





2. Show parents for the tasks. –°lick "include parent items" in the hierarchy filter.

 

 

3. Since we need to show the subtasks of the projects only, we need to set the parent filter.



4. For the parent items we create the rule "This is a project".


 
Done! 
 
This way, only projects that have at least one subtask with a due date this week will be displayed.
