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

Display project name and labels

By checking this option, you can pin the title of your project to the top of the page, along with the caption for your labels.

Only labels meeting one of the following criteria are displayed:

– Label with customized name

– Label present on a task (even a completedtask)

Reduce non-working time slots on When and Who views

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

Display task number

The numbers are incremented as tasks are created. 1 is the first task created in the project, 2 is the second task created in the project, etc.

Display task number

These numbers can be read in two places:

  • On tasks in the What view:Task number

 

  • When opening the job, on its side:

Number of task

If you delete a task from the project, its number is deleted at the same time. This means that this number will no longer be assigned to a task in this project.

For example, if you delete the task number 2, the numbering will be changed from 1 to 3 in the project, and there will never be a task number 2 in this project again: the task number is linked to the task, it is a fixed data.
