  7. Select Equal (Case Sensitive) for your modifier, then enter 0 for the number of children.

    This pulls a report for all tasks which are working tasks in your system.
    We recommend that you add a grouping for Project Name to make the report easier to read. For more information about adding groupings to your reports, see "Creating and Customizing Groupings."

Applying a Parent Task Filter Using a Text Mode Filter

You can apply a filter in a task report to filter out parent tasks and display only working tasks by building a filter in text mode. 

To apply a text-mode parent task filter to a task report:

  1. Navigate to the Reports area in your Global Navigation Bar.
  2. Click New Report.
  3. Select a Task Report.
  4. Click Filters.
  5. Click Switch to Text Mode.
  6. In the text editing window, copy and paste the following text: 
    numberOfChildren=0
    numberOfChildren_Mod=eq
    NOTE If you consider adding more than one filter to this report, we recommend that you add all your filters using the report builder interface, and clicking Switch to Text Mode after all the other filter rules have been added. Then, you can add the code for the parent task filter as noted above.
