Adding Resources & Due date to Outline view, or adding Icons and notes to Gantt view

Hi,

I'm looking to develop either a Gantt chart or a WBS that will show what the whole team will be working on in the next 2 weeks. I've developed a custom icon so that people could label as 'this is what I'm working on', and while I'm able to pull up in the marker index what the tasks for the whole team are, I don't see the information I need in the marker index. When I filter things through this 'icon' and then pull up the Gantt chart view, I'm able to see the tasks, due date, as well as resources so that's really good. However, in Gantt view I’m unable to see the icons so I can't really tell which items the team is currently working on as different topics and subtopics get pulled into the Gantt chart view.
When I look at the outline view I'm able to see the icons and the task which is really helpful, but I'm unable to see the resources and the due date.

I'm looking to be able to view either in Gantt or Outline (whatever is easier) as long as I have the following things showing up:
-The custom icon
-The topic along with any notes
-The resource assigned to the task
-And if possible, due date, attachments and links, however if this can't be done then that's fine.

What would be the best way for me to be able to filter things out this way?

The team is around 10 people and the task list is currently at ~60 items if that's important. Thanks in advance!

Have you tried filtering your map to only show the topics with your special icon? The Gantt chart will apply the filter too.

I have tried that, but doing that also picks up any sibling tasks that do not have the special icon. Is there a way that I can get rid of those so that it only shows tasks with that icon? I've selected the different option in the powerfilter so that it shows me for example only items with the resource and the special icon together but it still picks up sibling tasks that don't have either the resource or the special icon.
