Good morning, Is it possible on MS Project Pro 2019 to hide a period of time between two dates?


Our construction projects are divided into 3 stages: (1) pre-construction, (2) construction, and (3) defects liability period. The first 2 stages may last only a few weeks each, but the defects liability period lasts a year or more after construction. A few tasks take place at the end of defects period. This leaves a huge gap in the programme during which no specific tasks are scheduled. See fig. 1 below:

Can I ask Project to hide, say, the period between 6 Jul 2020 to 1 Nov 2021? Up until now, I've saved the entire project into a PDF with multiple pages, then used a PDF editing tool to overlay the first and last pages and clip them so they appear like the following image (Fig. 2). I'd prefer to use an in-built solution if there is one.

I've searched Google and Stack Exchange but to no avail. Thanks in advance.
