Did you know that you can “maverick” tasks or milestone shapes in OnePager?

This is the term we use when one or many shapes in the body of the chart have had any of their properties manually modified.

If you happen to modify one or many shapes using the capabilities in the Home tab on the Ribbon (Font, Format, Alignment, Position), or right-clicked on a shape and chosen Format to reveal the Change Task/Milestone Properties to make a change there… you have “mavericked” your shapes.

Comprehensive list of books on data visualization

We follow the Storytelling With Data blog by Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic (and you should too).

Her most recent post, many paths to learning data viz, is a goldmine of information. The podcast includes a lengthy list of books and other resources that we have linked below.

We’ve blogged a bunch about data visualization as it relates to planning and Gantt charts, but our thirst for insight on this topic is insatiable.

OnePager Tip: Virtual Summary Task (VST)

There is a little-known feature in OnePager that allows you to turn several tasks into a single task…this is called the Virtual Summary Task, or “VST.”

To create a VST, simply select as many tasks as you would like to combine using your CTRL key or using a mouse-lasso. Then right click on one of the items and choose “Make into virtual summary task.”

OnePager Goal: We Want You as a Lifetime-Customer

In case you didn’t get the feeling at any point in your previous business exchanges with us, I’d like to tell you now: We’d like your business for as long as you live and work.

We realize this isn’t something a product alone can achieve; it’s something that we humans under the hood must commit to daily in order to earn it.

It’s something we talk about regularly during our meetings, and every now and then we get a little pat on the back from a customer who is momentarily inspired to share their appreciation for the attention we’ve given them.

No application is perfect, but our development team works hard every day (weekends too!) to make OnePager better.

Given this customer-centric focus, your feedback is enormously important to us. Negative, or positive, or even if you just have a wish list for what you want the application to do, please find a minute to send us your thoughts.

Your input drives what we do and how we do it.

Thank you!

New Video: Mapping ANY Fields from Project or Excel Into OnePager

In earlier versions of OnePager, we gave you the option to select the fields that you wanted to import when you were first building your report, but didn’t offer the flexibility to change your mind and add new fields later on.

That changed last year with version 6.0.  Take a look at this video to see how to map ANY field from Project or Excel into an existing OnePager Project View:

Help! OnePager isn’t working! – Guidelines for Support Interactions

From the outset, let me state that very early on in the life of our company, we purposefully decided that customer experience would not only a priority, but a tenet of our business.

A part of this was as goal to provide best-in-class support.

We pride ourselves on our accessibility and turnaround time when our customers need help, and for the most part, we hear that our philosophy is working.
