Hiding Tasks in MS Project

I would like to hide several tasks within a project document. I have tried selecting 'hide task bar' within general information, however this only seems to hide the task bar within the gantt chart rather than the entire task (including task name etc.) There seems to be an option to hide sub tasks. How would I create a sub task? Can an existing task become a sub task or does the information have to be re-inputted?

RE: Hiding Tasks in MS Project

Hi Amy

Thank you for your question

One solution is to use a flag field. Simply insert a column into your Gannt chart by right clicking on the column head, choose insert column and select Flag1 from the field list.

Then set the value of the flag field to no for those that you don't want to see and apply the auto filter.(Click on the filter button on the main tool bar and select yes from the resulting auto filter on the flag1 column)

Hope this is useful
