Only showing projects that contain available actions? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
While I am in the planning in project view I would like to see only my projects that contain available actions. Right now I've got several projects and single action projects with no available actions displayed in my project view.

The availability filter just affects the actions but not projects themselves and I can't find any other way to filter them out.

The most convenient way to do it at present is with the splendid "Where in OF" script written by RobTrew. Here's a search you might use:

projects where ([Active]) and (number of available tasks > 0)
Note that this builds a new window with just the results selected (which gets you the display you want) but it is not dynamically updated. If you completed the last available task in a project in the window, the project would continue to be displayed until you ran the search again. Similarly, a project which after modification newly met the search parameters would not appear until the next search. In other words, it may not be suitable for making a perspective unless you are willing to rebuild the perspective frequently, or can cope with it being inaccurate at times.

thanks whpalmer4! what a pity, however, that this does update dynamically.
