Gantt view - exclude parent rows?


Can parent rows be excluded when using the Gantt view? I'd like the option of viewing the Gantt chart with just the sub-tasks and not the overall parent bar.

    Hi @Pat Deignan

    Yes, it can.

    You could use a so-called helper column to determine the level and then use a filter only to show all but parent rows.

    Something like this. You can call the helper column, Level.

    =IF(COUNT(CHILDREN([Task Name]@row)) > 0, COUNT(ANCESTORS()) + 1)

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic day & Happy New Year!
