We posted a video about this feature back in January, but wanted to make sure everyone clearly understands what this means: OnePager users no longer need Microsoft Project on their desktop in order to create OnePager visuals using their data on Project Server or Project Online!
Microsoft Project users are frequently frustrated that they can’t share files with most people in their company, because only a small percentage have Project installed. Yet we still need to share our plans in some way. OnePager is one of the best ways to do that.
Until recently, it only made sense for Microsoft Project users to have OnePager, because OnePager installed as an add-in for Project only. But now, OnePager installs as a standalone application that can make or update visuals without having Project installed as well. You don’t have to have your Project data actively opened and on the screen to use OnePager.
As long as the user has credentials to access Project Online or Project Server, they can produce new OnePager documents or update existing charts.

Keep an eye out for a filter capability in OnePager 6.0 (our next planned release), which will take this feature to the next level by allowing OnePager users to pull data they want without having to use a flag or number column!
