The Action list page format dialogue allows you to format and configure the Action List view to display the content you want to show.
The controls are logically grouped together into various tabs.
The Columns tab allows you to select the columns that you would like to display in the Action List view.
The Action List displays the "to do list" for the entire project across all the Activity Groups. Some or all of the following types of information can be displayed:
The columns tab allows you to select which of the above categories of information are displayed. Simply click the tick box to select or de-select each category of information.
Notes: The Activity Group, Type and Description columns have to be displayed. The order in which the columns get displayed can be changed by clicking on the column header in the view and dragging it left or right. When you do this, you will see that the order of the columns in the dialogue changes. You cannot change the order of columns from the dialogue.
The Description Font dialogue allows you to set the font, font style and font size for the description column of
Meetings, Milestones and Actions (as a default setting).
The font of the description column of
Meetings, Milestones and Actions is not affected. If you want to change the description font of existing items, you need to select the row (or multiple rows) and use the Format Text dialogue or the toolbars to change the font. This allows you to set the font, style (e.g. colour) and size of the description text for Meetings, Milestones and Actions on an individual basis, so that, for example, more important / urgent items can be highlighted, or items can be grouped by colour.
Note: the description font for a Meeting, Milestone or Action will be the same in the Action List and the Activity Group Detail.
The fonts for the other columns can be set using the Column Fonts tab in this same dialogue – see below for more information.
The Column Font tab allows you to set the font, font style and font size for the all of the columns in the Action List except for the Description column. For information about changing the font of the Description see the Description Font tab above.
Any changes will affect all rows and all pages of the Action List view.
The date format dialogue allows you to set a format for the date in the due date column of the Action List table section. e.g. you could choose to display Sunday 20th January as "Sun 20 Jan" or "20/01" or etc.
You can also select your locale so that you can get USA or UK date format options.
