Click on the OnePager button:
When the OnePager start screen pops up, click NEW to build a new Gantt chart, and then point OnePager to your project plan:
Give your chart a name and then click Create new chart:
In the initial version of the chart, we have actual months and weeks displaying. We want to remove these and replace them with generic months and weeks instead:
With your OnePager Gantt chart open, go to Home > Chart Properties. This will open a window that holds the Time Axis options:
Click Time Axis > Middle Level, and confirm that the Tic units are set to Month. Once that is confirmed, you will then select Month 1, Month 2 ...(From Start) from the Label format dropdown. This date format shows a generic month like "Month 5" instead of a specific calendar month like "February"
Once you have selected a generic date format for your months, you can go to the Bottom Level tab to pick a generic format for your weeks as well. Once finished, click OK:
- You will see now that the time axis at the top of your Gantt chart shows generic dates instead of precise months or weeks:
OnePager has many options for customizing the time axis in your Gantt chart. You can display time units from years down to seconds, with lots of different options to control the formatting and layout.
