How Sorting Works

How to Sort

Sorting Columns

The most basic sorting is to sort based on contents in a column:

  • Click once on a column header to sort in ascending order.
  • Click once more to sort in descending order.
Unsorted
Click once to sort ascending
Click once more to sort descending

As you can see above, the sorting takes place on the each level of the task-tree, so while the sub-tasks are sorted, this does not mean that they are not still children of task number 1.

You can also sort ALL tasks as an alphabetical flat-list, which will disregard the task-tree structure. For this you will need to apply a Filter.

Reset Sort

To reset the column sorting, right-click in the task table, and select Reset Sort from the dropdown context menu.

Auto-Filtering

Note: This only works for users of LiveProject Premium Viewer, LiveProject Team Viewer or LiveProject Project Collaboration products. Compare versions.

You may know auto-filters from programs such as Microsoft Excel. Auto-Filtering allows you to quickly select a set of values from each column, which are then filtered into the task list.

Auto-Filtering is turned on by pressing the Auto Filter button on the top toolbar.

Once Auto-Filtering is turned on, each column will show a dropdown list, that summarize all the values in that column. Selecting a value from this dropdown list will instantly filter the tasks that matches the selection.

As you can see, the filtering is active on a sub-task level, and the structure of the task tree is maintained.

Columns with active filters are highlighted in blue.

Reset Auto-Filter

To remove auto-filtering, simply click the auto-filter button again to turn it off

Filtering is the ultimate method of finding and sorting information in LiveProject. With filter you can drill down to the smallest detail and find exactly the information you need.

Filtering is such a large topic that it is best covered on its own help page.
