Yet another way would be to arrange it this way
+ Project name
+ Project 2
- - Task 1
- - Task 2
- Work done
- - Task 3
- - Task 4
using that structure now with:-
Filter: BillingNo is null
Context Parents; Hierarchy; both on
Sort: by start date -What does it mean when an item's text is blue?
I have a sub-item showing twice (once as a main item, blue)
I think this is because I had it settings different and the subitem showed as main item and I, without thinking, dragged it into it's parent item.
Something similar but different came up before, at the time, you said-
Your grid setting is to show context parents but not hierarchy. You also requested a sort by startdate.
Since Hierarchy is not set, the grid will display items in the sort order requested. Notice that if you omit the context parent shown, all items are perfectly sorted. This is exactly what you want...
So... Items must be shown in the correct order since you have specified a sort. Now, you also specified Context Parents, so these are added when required.
I turn off Context Parents, refresh, but now the two sub-items of the "problem" subitem above show twice -
but no matter what I do I cant seem to get rid of those doubled items (tried a few different sorts, with/without context parents) -
It was with the "Work Done" item you see here I had the problems earlier with - showing in Blue -
Have I cloned them or something
can you tell me how to sort it so it keeps the hierarchy, but sorts subitems by date "within" their respective parent items
I had it for a while but cant for the life of me figure it out again
