Create a grouping

  1. Go to the report or the list where you want to create your custom grouping.

  2. Click the Grouping icon .

    Select New Grouping

  3. Click New Grouping.
    The interface builder for creating the grouping launches.

  4. In the Grouping Preview section, click Add Grouping to define how you want information in the report to be organized. A preview of what the grouping looks like in the report is shown below.

  5. Begin typing the name of the field that represents the way that you want to organize information in the report, then click it when it appears in the drop-down list.

  6. (Optional and conditional) When building a grouping in an updated list, select Collapse this grouping by default if you want the results in the grouping to display collapsed rather than expanded. This setting is disabled by default and the results of the grouping always display in the expanded list.

    For information about updated and legacy lists, see the section The difference between the updated and the legacy lists in the article Get started with lists in Adobe Workfront.

    note tip
    • When you manually adjust groupings when viewing a list, Workfront remembers your manual preference until you log out. When you log back in, the list displays according to this setting.
    • The results of a grouping always display expanded after accessing them from a chart element or in a legacy list. In these cases, this setting is ignored.
  7. Repeat Steps 4, 5, and 6 to define additional groupings.
    You can define up to three groupings for organizing information. You can further organize your information with up to four groupings by creating a matrix report. For more information on matrix reports, see Create a matrix report.

  8. Click Save Grouping.
