Using filters to sort your MS project planMicrosoft Project has many useful pre-set filters, enabling you to focus on particular aspects of your plan. For example, you can apply a filter to only show unstarted tasks or overallocated resources.
Steps to filter your project
By default Microsoft Projects filters by All Tasks. To change the filter go to the Project menu Project > Filtered for:
If you can't find the filter you need view the full list by going to Project > Filtered for: > More filters.
Note that the lists of filters are grouped into those that apply to Tasks and those that apply to resources. Use the radio button to toggle between them.
Click the Apply to see the filter in action!
