Finding and Viewing Information
It can be helpful to know that you can sort the tasks into different orders. Now we have lots of different views we've talked about, lots of different views, lots of different places to get your data. The Sort Option works everywhere. So we head up to the View tab into the Data Group and here's the Sort button. And you can see right off the bat we can sort by start date or finish date or priority or cost or ID, and if none of those work for you, you can even choose to sort by and make your own pick. You can do three levels of sort. They can be ascending or descending, and every column is available. Oh my. Yeah, you have lots and lots of choices in here. So let's say I'm just interested in sorting by task name. I pick it, I'll go ascending, and that's all I want. I click Sort, and you can see it'll mix the tasks up and sort them ascending by name. Notice the ID numbers remain, so you always know which task is which task by its number. Alright, two and three, they're in here, but they are mixed up and sorted by task name. I can easily put them back by choosing Sort and ID Number and we're back, so keep that in mind. It's a good one to know about. I hope you've found this information helpful, and I look forward to seeing you in the next lesson.
