Sorting tasks chronologically including summary tasks/sub projects

Copper Contributor

Hello, 

 

I need to sort the tasks of a project plan which includes sub projects. 

If I simply sort the task dates chronologically, the result is, that it only sorts the start and end date of each sub project. What I need to do though is to sort all tasks of these sub projects, regardless of which sub project they come from. 

 

Any ideas?

mamuench,
Go to, View > data group > Sort. When the Sort window appears select "sort by". Uncheck the option to "Keep outline structure". Then select the Start field as the 1st criteria.

Hope this helps.
