Filter buttons do not display in page headers

Access requirements

You must have the following access to perform the steps in this article:

Adobe Workfront plan
Adobe Workfront license
Access level configurations
System administrator


The following filter buttons do not display in their respective areas:

Adobe Workfront area
Filter buttons
  • Projects I'm On

  • Projects I Own

  • My Timesheet Approvals

  • My Timesheets


The filter buttons in the Projects and Timesheets area do not display because the corresponding filters are not included in the layout template applied to the user. The Workfront administrator must assign a layout template that includes the filters.

Sometimes the filters are removed from the List Controls area in Setup. The Workfront administrator must include them in the lists in this area for them to be available in the layout templates.
  1. Verify that the layout template displays the following filters:

    • Projects I’m On and Projects I Own in the Projects area
    • My Timesheet Approvals and My Timesheets in the Timesheet area

    To do this:

    1. Access the layout template.
    2. Select Lists under Customize what users see.
    3. Select Projects or Timesheets under Select a list to customize.
    4. In the Filter section, verify that Projects I’m On, Projects I Own (for projects) and My Timesheet Approvals and My Timesheets (for timesheets) are selected.
    5. Click Save.

    For more information, see Customize Filters, Views, and Groupings using a layout template.

  2. Assign the layout template to the correct users, job roles, teams, or groups. For information, see Assign users to a layout template.
