Hide or unhide a column in Project views

Project 2013 provides a wide range of columns you can add to a view. Probably more than you need for your project. You can hide or unhide columns to cut through the clutter and see just the right information you need to manage your project.

 Tip    Hiding a column doesn’t delete any data from your project; it only hides it from view until you unhide the column.

To hide a column, do this:

  1. Go to the Gantt Chart or any sheet view.

  2. Right-click the title of the column you want to hide.
  3. Click Hide Column.

Unhide a column

To show a column in your project, you need to unhide it. This is the same process as inserting a column, and you do it the same way whether you hid the column previously or it was never part of your project.

 Tip    From Project’s perspective, all columns are in the project plan—you just can’t see them until you “unhide” them.

  1. Right-click the title of the column to the right of where you want the new column to appear.
    Note This is for Microsoft Project only. Go here to learn how to hide and unhide columns in Excel.
  2. Click Insert Column.
  3. Pick a column type from the long list.
