Tips / Tricks FAQ

How can I link entities in Twproject?

Every entity is identified by a code or its id. If you write on a test field T#code_or_id#  Twproject will transform this string in a clickable link. Use T#code_or_id# for task, I#code_or_id# for issues, R#code_or_id# for resources, B#code_or_id# for boards, A#code_or_id# for agenda events. The code for each object is generally shown on the respective editor. See https://twproject.com/support/linking-and-links/

How can I search for projects created before a specific date?

Every filter fields can be used using QBE syntax. Writing “<1/1/2015” on a date search field means every date before 1/1/2015. But you can write “LM” as well that means every date in Last Month. There are lots of useful tricks: see https://twproject.com/support/twproject-advanced-usage/tips-tricks/
