Multi-Project Gantt Chart

How to build a Gantt chart from multiple project plans

If you or your team manage a portfolio of projects, you probably have a need to build Gantt charts that show multiple projects at once. This is not easy to do in Microsoft Project, but with OnePager, you can build a Gantt chart using multiple project plans from Microsoft Project, Project Online, or Project Server.

    In this example, we'll import a total of three plans from Microsoft Project, but there is no limit to the number of projects that you can include in your Gantt chart.

  4. On the same screen, there is a Starting Template section. Click the Change button and pick the "Multi-Project Gantt Chart - Detailed" template. This template is optimized for multi-project reporting.
  5. With all three project plans imported, click Create new Chart to build your multi-project Gantt chart. You'll get something like this:
