Can not filter on Start or Finish date

You have a very simple project. You want to show only activity which finish on 25-Jan-16.


As usual, you create an filter like this:


Then… SURPRISE. It’s a blank screen.


A big “WHY” question.

To answer this question. You need to show the time of activity by going to Edit -> User Preferences -> Dates tab -> In “Time” section, click on “24 hour”


Now you can see the Time when activity start and finish.


You can notice that when we define the filter, by default the Time is 00:00. That’s why P6 can not find any activity.


So we can change the criteria to cover the whole day like this:

7Now P6 can show the activity which has finish date of 25-Jan-16.
