Filtering and selecting Plans are two ways to view the connections between Activities and Plans. They also provide a convenient method to associate Activities with Plans.
Filtering by Plan
(A Calendar with 4 plans filtered to 1 plan)
When you filter a Calendar by Plan, all other Plans are hidden in the Timeline, as are any Activities that are not associated with the filtered Plan.
To Filter a Calendar by a Plan simply select the Plan from the Plan Filter dropdown on the top left of the Timeline.
Selecting a Plan
(A Calendar with 1 of 4 plans selected)
Selecting a Plan provides a similar view, although instead of hiding the non-selected Plan(s) and Activity(s) entirely, they are de-emphasized by becoming partially transparent.
To select a Plan simply click the rectangular button to the left of the Plan name in the Timeline.
Which should you use?
If you're looking to focus on a single Plan and its Activities, filtering will provide a clean view of that Plan only. If having the context of the other Plans and Activities is important to the work you are doing, selecting a Plan is the way to go.
When you have filtered by a Plan or selected a Plan, any Activities that you add to the Calendar will automatically be added to that Plan, provided that they fall within the start and end dates of the Plan (without a Plan selected or filtered, you will be prompted to select a Plan, should one be available.
