Within Teamwork.com, you can share a saved filter from your project to a member of your team so that they can see the same information based on your applied filter.

You can share filters for most aspects of your project such as tasks, milestones, messages, files, time, notebooks, risks, links and comments. The filter options will vary depending on the item you are filtering. 

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

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.

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

Click the filters button in the top right of the area you are currently viewing to open the advanced filters pane.

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.

Editing saved filters

If you activate a saved filter and make changes to it, an asterisk appear next to the name of the filter in the filters pane until you save the changes.

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

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