I get asked a lot about how to display variance in OnePager. This post will hopefully get your creative juices flowing about how to meet your specific needs. You might be interested in a project summary chart that looks something like this:
Our last introductory video for version 5.3 covers one of the most exciting new features of the release.
OnePager now has the ability to create OnePager Project Views using data directly from Microsoft Project Server without having to open any files in Microsoft Project on your desktop (if you have credentials for the server).
For those of you who are Project Online users, we had planned to release this feature for Project Online data as well, however, we’re now waiting for Microsoft to complete a fix before we can complete things on our end. If you are interested in being notified when this is available, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll make sure to keep you in the loop.
Last week we presented the first video in a series outlining the new improvements to OnePager in version 5.3. If you missed it, you can watch it by clicking this link.
This week is Part 2 and can be viewed below.
We’ll be reaching out to all existing users very soon with more information about how to upgrade to OnePager version 5.3, so please hold tight!
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.
