How to Sort By WBS Hierarchy

Written on . By Tracy Mah

It is very important when you are creating a Work Breakdown Structure in Primavera P6 Professional that you pay close attention to the column sort order. When you click the top of any column in P6, the table will sort either in an Ascending or Descending order alphabetically. There is a third option in the WBS Window for the WBS Code column, which is sorting by Hierarchy.

When creating the Work Breakdown Structure or work packages for your project, you want to ensure you are maintaining the correct order and levels of your WBS tree.

Tracy Mah, our senior P6 trainer and consultant, recorded a quick video to demonstrate what sorting by hierarchy looks like.
