Primavera P6 Training – Use the filter options


Filtering is a quick and easy way to determine which activities are displayed in a layout.  Filtering enables you to create customized layouts that:

  • Limit the number of activities displayed.
  • Helps focus on a particular group of activities (i.e. critical activities).

Primavera P6 allows you to filter activities in several ways. P6 has a set of pre-defined filters as well as the ability to create user-defined filters of your own.

The filters are divided into the following groupings:

  • Default
    • Available to all users.
    • 15 pre-defined filers.
    • Cannot be deleted or modified.
  • Global
    • Available to all users.
  • User Defined
    • Available to current user for all project which he/she has access.

You may apply one or more filters to a layout at a time.  Additionally, multiple criteria for selection may be used within a single filter.

To help you save additional work and time, filter specifications can be saved and re-applied and filters can also be saved as part of a layout.

The following tutorial video below demonstrates applying filters to activities in a project utilizing both the default filters and user-defined filters.
