Linking tasks to a seperate project Summary

Linking tasks to a seperate project Summary

Linking tasks to a seperate project Summary


Quite new to project so this might be an easy answer
We have 5 separate Projects on the go , i want to now create a Weekly summary of these to show our client progress but on the summary I might not want to show him all the tasks on that project only specific ones . I have tried creating a new master project and then inserting the other projects as subprojects but if i then update the separate projects with additional tasks will these then show on the Master Project ( which i would want it to )? and if i delete some of the tasks on the Master project that i don't want the customer to see , will these then delete the tasks on the separate projects as well ( which i wouldn't want).

At present i'm having to update the separate project dates then go into the Master summary and update the dates as well which is undesirable.
Sure this must be quite a common thing to want to do.

Thanks in advance
