I have a QGIS project that combines a number of background raster layers and vector layers showing a wide range of objects within my work site (tracks, culverts, felling progress layers, environmental constraints, aerial photos etc etc).

I would like to create a predefined 'view' of certain layers depending upon the task in hand and be able to toggle between views or select a view from a list to quickly switch to the assets relevent to the task.

I could create seperate projects with shared assets but that seems like a sledge hammer approach. Is there plugin that allows this or should I learn python and create something :-)

Please have a look at the map themes. They should do what you're looking for. You can add any number of layers to a map theme, and when toggling that theme, all layers in it will be turned on, and all others turned off.
