Scoped Hierarchy View


Here we give the additional functions available for moving around the task or resource hierarhy.

  • Scope to This

    If you select a item, which is a Summary, you can make that the root of the view. The view will then contain the selected item and its Subordinate.

  • Scope Up

    If the root of a view has a parent, the latter will be made the view root. Thus a greater portion of the project objects (tasks or resources) will be shown.

The above commands are available in the item toolbar.


The general Outlines command is available in the Project menu using which one can specify up to which level the hierarchy is displayed. Specific nodes (Summaries) may expanded/collapsed using the [+] and [-] commands in the toolbar containing the Scope... commands (see above).
