In this tutorial we are going to go over how to adjust the Activity Table columns & customize the Gantt Chart Bars in a Primavera P6 Activity Layout. This functionally is important to display relevant project information to all vested stakeholders.
The activity columns are shown in the “Activity Table” view (for more details about the activity table see Part 3 of this tutorial). To modify which columns are shown in the “Activity Table” view, select the columns dialog box from the menu icon bar or from the “View” drop down menu. The dialog box is split into two main areas: Available Options and Selected Options.
- Available Options is a list of all available codes. The default grouping is by “Category” but this grouping can be changed to an alphabetical list. To change simply click the “Available Options” drop down list and change the group / sort criteria. If you are working in a large enterprise structure there may be hundreds of codes which may be difficult to navigate However Primavera does have a search functionality (Ctrl-F) to help find a specific code value. Once you find the code you wish to display, use the add button (right arrow) or the add all (double right arrow) to move the code to selected options.
- Selected Options is the list of all selected codes that will be displayed in the activity table.
