Video Series: Tips for Working With Large OnePager Reports (2/3)

This is the second video in a series that will cover a variety of features and tips to help you work with large amounts of data in OnePager.

Automated WBS in Excel

When you’re building a plan in Excel, especially with OnePager, automated population of data can be critical to gaining efficiency in the long-run.

Organizing, updating, visualizing, and generally making sense of your plan will all be much faster and easier if you have the data there from the beginning to leverage sorting and filtering capabilities built into Excel and OnePager.

Adding a WBS is another value that can be added to your Excel plan to help in this regard, however, having to do that manually may seem daunting.  Luckily, the internet provides when it comes to Excel knowledge and we found a very nice article and template previously posted online that can might provide you an excellent start!

Introducing OnePager v5.1!

We are excited to announce we have released the latest versions of OnePager Pro and OnePager Express. The two biggest changes in the new versions are…

  • Multi-page functionality – Now you can use OnePager to make a project timeline with more than one printed page. We know, we know, a 3-page project timeline is not really a one-pager, but many of you told us you would rather make a multi-page document that’s readable than a one-page document that’s an eye test. So now, when you import more tasks from Project or Excel than fit on your printed page, OnePager will automatically add a second page (or a third, or a tenth…) and give you options to customize what appears on pages 2 through infinity in terms of headers/timestamps/etc.
  • Where’s My Stuff?! – We’ve added a feature that allows you to see what happened to task bars that do not appear in your current project view. And, just as importantly, we provide you with a one-click solution to restore deleted tasks to the project view if you so choose.

You can learn much more about the latest features of OnePager by watching this video.
