Display options of a project

Project > mceclip1.png “Settings” icon in the top right corner of the window. Go to the “Display option” section.

You can choose to display one of the following options on the tasks of a project:

  • Display of start, end or duration dates on tasks
  • Zoom in on working hours
  • Increase display of task task status
  • Only display tasks inside current displayed time period
  • Display project name and labels
  • Default duration for new tasks
  • Project color

Display of start, end or duration dates on tasks

You can choose to display one of the following information on the tasks of the project you are on:

  • The start date of the task.
  • The end date of the task.
  • The duration of the task.

This option applies to all views of the project in question.

Zoom in on working hours

By checking this option, you reduce the display (in the When and Who views) of the planning areas indicated as “not worked” in the project settings. If you schedule a task on an “off” day or time, the size of this task will be reduced.

For more information, see the article dedicated to the hours and days worked for a project.

Note: in general, this option allows you for example to reduce the display of Saturday and Sunday

Increase display of task task status

By checking this option, you enforce the display of the color code of tasks in the When and Who views. This color code is used to display the status of tasks according to their schedule:

  • Red: late
  • Orange: in progress
  • Gray: coming soon
  • Green: finished

Only display tasks inside current displayed time period

By checking this option, you only display the tasks that are scheduled in the period that you view in the planning. This allows you to optimize the loading time for large projects.

Display project name and labels

By checking this option, you pin at the top of the project its title as well as the caption of your labels.

The labels displayed are only those that meet one of the criteria below:

  • Label with customized name
  • Label present on a task (even a completed task)

Default duration for new tasks

You can choose a default duration (1 day or 1 hour), which will be used for each new task created.

You can then modify the duration of this task in the When tab of the task detail.
