Blog Highlight: Fifty Shades of Gray in Project Reporting
A colorful project report is not always the most informative, depending on the information you are trying to communicate. This Gantt chart is clean and attractive, sure, but if you look at the legend in the lower-left hand corner, you will see that we are color-coding by the number of hours spent on each task. The color scheme doesn’t intuitively tell us which tasks take more work than others.
Introducing Our New Website and Logos
If you happened to be on our website on Sunday, September 14, you witnessed what must have been a rather shocking transformation! That’s because we launched the first redesign of our website in four years. We undertook the redesign in partnership with Denver design firm FusionBox with several goals.
New Automated Licensing System
Chronicle Graphics is pleased to announce that it has implemented an automated license key management system for OnePager Pro and OnePager Express. License requests are handled 24 hours per day, seven days per week, with keys issued instantaneously by e-mail when users provide adequate identifying information. Users may request keys online for new installations, or to replace an old key when moving to a new computer and reinstalling.
Upgrade to OnePager Pro and Express 5.1
This past summer was a very busy time here at Chronicle Graphics. We released concurrent upgrades to OnePager Pro and Express, both of which are now on version 5.1. OnePager 5.1 represents the latest in a series of semi-annual releases designed to add powerful new capabilities to our project reporting tools, while simultaneously making the software more intuitive to everyday users.
Blog Highlight: Henry Gantt and his Revolutionary Chart

(Fittingly, the edition I read was published by Forgotten Books.) Here’s a little historical background on the Gantt chart for all you Gantt Artists out there.
