Announcing OnePager Pro 5.0 Beta
Chronicle Graphics is pleased to announce the availability of OnePager Pro 5.0 Beta, which has hundreds of new enhancements, many of which are based on the feedback of our dedicated user base. Many of our users have already signed up to participate in the beta program, and are already exploring the new features—many of which are over a year in the making.
New Task and Milestone Formatting Options
One of the key upgrades coming in OnePager Pro 5.0 is an expanded selection of formatting options for both tasks and milestones. In previous versions of OnePager, we provided a limited number of task and milestone shapes, a couple of fill patterns, and a one-size-fits-all approach to the height of these shapes. In OnePager Pro 5.0, your options are greatly expanded, with new flexibility to modify shape, fill, height, and even the border of each task or milestone in your chart.
Unleash the Power of Conditional Formatting
Another key upgrade in OnePager Pro 5.0 will be the ability to define powerful new rules that automatically format your OnePager chart based on the data in your Microsoft Project plan. OnePager Pro has always been the leader when it comes to dynamic, data-driven formatting. Advanced users of OnePager Pro know that they can already color-code a project plan based on one Microsoft Project column while dynamically creating swimlanes based on another.
Upgrading to Microsoft Project or Excel 2013 and Windows 8
It’s upgrade time again. Microsoft is releasing both the new Office 2013, including Project 2013, and its new Windows 8 operating system. While many of our enterprise customers won’t see these upgrades for several years, it’s still important to understand how the Microsoft upgrades will impact OnePager users. We have good news: nothing changes.
