Within Teamwork.com, you can share a saved filter from different areas of your site with members of your team so that they can see the same information based on your applied filter.

When you share a filter, all selected users will receive an email with a link to the filter which when clicked will open their Teamwork.com site on the page with the filter applied.

Site-level filtering areas

The associated filter options will vary depending on the area and item type you are filtering. Supported site-level areas for filtering include:

  • Home
    • My Projects
    • Activity
    • Unread Comments
    • Unread Messages
    • Events
  • Projects
    • List - via copied link only.
  • Planning 
    • Portfolio (price plan dependent) 
    • Chart
    • Workload
  • Everything
    • Tasks, Completed Tasks, Milestones, Messages, Comments, Files, Time, Notebooks, Risks, Links.
  • Calendar

If you share a filter with a user who does not have access to the relevant area, they will not be able to view it.

Note: After sharing a saved filter, any changes you make to your saved filter will be reflected for anyone viewing the one you have shared. One way to stop the filter from being updated on their side is for them to save their own version of it.

Sharing a saved filter

Copying a link to a saved filter

In the Share a Filter modal, you have an additional option to copy a link to the filter which allows you to share the filter settings manually, for example in a comment on a task or via a chat message.

In the List subsection of the site-level Projects area, saved filters can only be shared via the copy link method. In the Saved Filters view of the Filters pane, click the options button to the right of the filter and click Copy to clipboard.

Editing saved filters

If you activate a saved filter and make changes to it, you will notice an asterisk appear next to the name of the filter.

If you then share this with changes before saving, it will be treated as an unsaved filter and any changes made to it after sharing will not be updated on the recipient's side.

Note: Sharing filters is available on paid Teamwork.com subscriptions.
