Multi-Project Reports Using OnePager Pro and Microsoft Project

How to create a multi-project report that combines several Microsoft Plans on a single page

If your organization manages multiple projects, your project reports need to be able to show all projects at a high level in a single document. OnePager Pro, the reporting app for Microsoft Project, makes it easy to combine multiple projects into a single high-level report that is easy for executives and stakeholders to understand.

OnePager Pro creates multi-project reports like this with just a few button clicks:

Here's how to build a multi-project report:

  1. In the example below, we have three sample projects. We will use "Flag 1" to select high-level summary tasks from each of the three subprojects before we create our multi-project report in OnePager Pro:
    Multiple Microsoft Project plans before import into OnePager Pro. This example uses an integrated master schedule which is a common way to combine multiple Microsoft Project plans together. However, OnePager Pro does not require an integrated master schedule to create a multi-project report. If you prefer to create your report without the use of an IMS, please read Reports from Multiple Microsoft Project Plans instead for a slightly different set of instructions.
  2. Click on the OnePager Pro button on the Microsoft Project Add-ins tab to begin building your multi-project report. From the Start screen choose New, and the OnePager Choices form will appear:
    Import multiple Microsoft Project plans into OnePager Pro. The wizard allows you to specify the name of your multi-project report, the snapshot (status) date, and which template you would like to use as a starting point.
  3. Click the Create new project view button to import all of your projects into a multi-project report:

This multi-project report has automatically grouped each subproject into its own swimlane and assigned a unique color for better readability. If you like the way the report looks, you can copy and paste it into PowerPoint, or you can use OnePager Pro's flexible report editor to fine-tune the look and feel before sharing the report with your team.

OnePager Pro is used by PMOs worldwide to create multi-project reports. Get started today by downloading a free trial or attending one of our demonstration webinars.
