Working with Grouping


Like filters, groups help you find information faster in views that contain lots of data. Like the name implies, groups allow you to group data in a view. For example, you might want to see your Gantt Chart view grouped by a custom field called Location. This new view of the Gantt Chart view would show you all the same tasks, but now they would be clumped together to show you all the tasks that occur in certain areas in a single grouping.
