Displaying fields as columns

1. When you open a project plan, right-click into the planning list to open the context menu and click on Select Fields.

Or open the tab View and click on Select Fields in the ribbon.

2. The window Customization with the available columns opens. Drag the fields from the window into the planning list.

3. Rearrange the columns by dragging the fields to another position.

4. If you want to remove a column from the planning list, open the context menu first and click on Select Fields to open the window Customization again. Then drag the field you want to remove from the planning list into the window. 

NOTE InLoox will remember your customized planning list and display the selected columns in the same order once you create another project plan.

Note  To ensure consistent presentation and labeling between InLoox Web App and InLoox for Windows/Outlook, we have adjusted and harmonized some labels for InLoox 11.4.2. The differences:

  • Effort = Effort of the task or Summarized effort of the tasks subordinate to an activity
  • Duration (former Work duration) = planned duration of the activity in workdays
  • Timespan (former duration) = Effective duration incl. non-working time, calculated on the basis of the defined working time calendar
