The Project List is a collective view of all the projects you have access to in your account. This page allows you to customize the list and narrow it down to show projects most relevant to you.

The Project List toolbar contains various configuration tools as well as Search and Export options. You also have the ability to create a project directly from this page by clicking the + Add Project button on the right side of the toolbar.

Clicking the Project Cards (“ ”) or Project Gantt (“ ”) icon will take you to the respective pages.

Custom fields—Depending on your permission in each project, you'll also be able to view and edit custom fields in the Project List. If you don’t have permission to view a certain custom field on a particular project, that custom field cell will appear blank.
You can sort the Project List by text, number, date, currency, and single choice custom fields. You cannot sort by multi-select custom fields.
If the Hide Field setting is enabled for a custom field, the custom field cell will appear grayed out in the Project List and be read-only.
Users with the Report Viewer account permission or above can see all project custom fields, regardless of their project permission.
Note: Some columns in the Project List may be empty either because there is no value for that field or because you don't have permission to see that particular field for that specific project (such as financial fields or custom fields).
You can select which columns appear in the Project List table along with their order by using the Configure Columns drop-down.
To rearrange the column order, click and hold the Drag (“ ”) icon next to a column and then drag it to the order you want it to appear in the table.
Show or Hide Projects
Using the Show drop-down menu, you can filter the Project List to show certain types of projects:
- Your Projects—Only projects you're participating in.
- Joinable Projects—Projects you can join.
- Organization Projects (orgs only)—Projects in your organization. (You must have the Report Viewer account permission or higher to see this option.)
- Guest Projects—Projects for which you have Guest Access.
To view archived projects, select Archived or All from the Archived column in the Project List table and then click Apply.
To view projects in the Estimate stage, select Estimate or All from the Stage column in the Project List table and then click Apply.
Use the Search box to narrow down the results in the Project List table. This can help you locate projects that contain specific information.
You can further refine your results by adding column-specific search parameters before your search term. This allows you to search for values only in specific columns rather than the entire Project List table. To do this, precede your search box term with one of the following column-specific parameters:
For example, if you want to search for projects that have "finance" in their title, type title: finance in the Search box.
The export function lets you export all project columns or only the ones that you have selected in the Configure Columns menu to a CSV or XLS file.
Project List Table
The Project List table consists of individual project rows, column filters, editable custom fields, Project Pulse side panels, and the bulk action toolbar.
Click on a Filter (“ ”) icon to apply filters to one or more of the following columns:
- Project Color
- Provider Lead
- Milestone Weight % Complete
Custom field columns in the Project List also include filters.
You can apply filters to multiple columns at once to only show the information that is relevant to you. Any selected filter options will always appear at the top of the filter list in the modal.
The options that appear when you click the Filter (“ ”) icon will vary depending on the column it's in. For example, in the Project Color filter column, you can select a new project color for the selected projects. Alternatively, the Milestone Weight % Complete column allows you to enter a Min and Max percentage amount to filter down the results.
Selecting the checkboxes next to the project titles causes the bulk actions toolbar to appear at the bottom of the table. From here, you can perform the following actions across the selected projects:
- Add members to projects
- Set project team lead
- Add groups to projects
- Set project status
- Set project colors (if enabled)
- Archive projects
To learn more, see the Project List Bulk Actions article.
Edit Custom Fields
You can edit custom fields from within the Project List. First, select the Columns menu and check the custom fields from the drop-down menu. Next, click into a custom field cell for a specific project and enter or select a value.
