Chronicle Graphics recently released the new OnePager Pro 5.0. This release represents a significant upgrade over the previous version, and provides users of Microsoft Project (2003 through 2013) with project schedule visualization capabilities beyond Microsoft Project’s timeline view.
In this series of postings, we will present and illustrate OnePager Pro’s new features and capabilities, how these capabilities can be used to improve your effectiveness in project schedule presentations, and how OnePager Pro 5.0 gives you unique capabilities to visualize project schedule issues and situations in artful ways.
There will be six postings included in this series.
- The first post will describe how OnePager Pro has improved Gantt chart views produced from Microsoft Project plans, and how these views can be customized with new shapes and fills.
- The second post will cover enhancements to OnePager Pro’s editor, specifically how to drag, drop and resize objects on the screen.
- The third post will explain two new types of decorations: deadlines and endpoints, and will give you examples of each.
- In the fourth post, we will examine OnePager Pro’s new ribbon interface and how this improvement makes using OnePager Pro easier and more intuitive.
- The fifth post of this series will dive exclusively into the new and exciting conditional formatting feature. Conditional formatting allows you to specify rules for visualizing tasks and milestones with respect to their color, shape, border, font, and size all driven by Microsoft Project data.
- For the final post, we will discuss how OnePager Pro 5.0 provides options for visualizing projects with complex resourcing.
Throughout the series, we welcome your comments and questions, and invite you to try the new features and capabilities for yourself.
