Q. I can’t filter the Gantt chart view of my Tasks list in Share­­Point to just show my tasks. Is there any way to do this?

A. The best way to deal with this limitation is to set up another view. Make it a Personal View if you will be the only one using it. In the Filter section, select the Assigned To column.

Enter your name exactly the way it appears in the Assigned to column. If you chose Gantt chart view for your Personal View, you will need to also choose the Gantt chart fields of task title, start and due dates. In the List tab, you can switch to your view anytime from the Change View box.

Q. I don’t seem to be able to use the PowerPoint Screenshot or Screen Clipping Tool. It doesn’t capture anything. What might be the problem?

A. If you have applications with security features that prevent taking screen shots or selecting information for copy and paste, you will not be able to use your Screenshot or Screen Clipping tool. Even if you don’t intend to use a screen or clipping from the protected application, you will still be able to use the feature. Close down all applications, reopening only those you need to accomplish your task. This might also surface if you have an email message window open for which the “do not forward” feature has been activated. This, too, will prevent the use of those tools.

Great tips!

In SharePoint 2013 Gnatt chart views can be created directly from your list properties. To really take things to the next step use the content type from your PMO site and display it in a web part.
