My Work overview

Updated on

This article provides a brief overview of My Work. The My Work feature is designed for Team Members to view and update all work assignments on a single page. The Plan Owner will see the updated values when they look at the plan schedule and elsewhere (reports, etc.).

My Work allows users to manage work in a List, a Board, and in a personal Resource Plan. From these views, users can group, filter and sort their work items, view work in a gantt chart, save custom view configurations, add activities to work items, add new work items, update work items, and enter time off.

The work items that appear in My Work are based on the tasks date. My Work only shows work items with dates from past or the next 30 days.
