My Desk – Filtering Your Tasklist

There are several ways you can filter your tasklist.


  • You can use this to limit the type of items displayed.
  • Checking the box will include that item type.
  • The system selects all types by default. If you deselect all of the boxes, all types display.

Date Created – Within 6 Months

  • When you select this box, the results include items just recently created.
  • You can uncheck this box to see older items.

Display Items Where – Is

  • You can use this to further refine the list of items shown.
  • Choose an option from the drop-down menu, then enter a corresponding value in the “Is” box.
  • The more specific information you enter, the shorter the list will be.

The following table describes the choices for the “is” box.

Choice Description
Item # Enter the full item number without the alphabetic prefix
Budget # Enter 1 or more digits. All items that start with a matching number will display. If you enter 2 or more digits, the system will automatically include the hyphen.
PI Last Name Enter 1 or more letters. The results will include all items with a PI Name that starts with the entered letters.
Rec’vd Date (Received Date) Enter in a valid date in the format: mm/dd/yyyy.  The results will include all items received in GCA on that date.
Last Action Taken Select a choice from the drop-down menu.
Action/Request Type By default, the results include all types. When you select this choice, a menu displays instead of the text box. To limit the types displayed, uncheck the “All” box, then check the desired types.

Note: too many type choices may cause a time-out condition.
