Filtering SharePoint Task Lists by People and Choices

In the previous blog post we looked about how the IntelliGantt Web Part can dynamically build pie charts when the user selects a choice field. IntelliGantt finds all the choice values and cross references them against every users task assignments. The result is a nice display of everyone's status (for example) across all their assigned tasks, across all the projects you have selected.

Something like this:

Wouldn't it be grand if you could select a user's pie chart and have the task list filtered so that only that user's tasks are shown?

We thought so too, so yes, you can select one or more users and the task list and gantt chart will filtered so that only those users tasks are displayed.

What about the choice values? It'd be nice if you could select those and have the task list filtered so you can quickly see everything that is 'Not Started' or 'In Progress'.

We agree, and you can. Click on any of the choice values and IntelliGantt will immediately filter the tasks.

Finally, the Pièce de résistance, what if you could mix and match the choices and the people so you could see all of Joe and Mary's tasks that are 'Not Started'.

Yes, you can absolutely do that too!
