Suppose you’ve created a Microsoft Project file and have to update two levels in your organization with different reports. Just follow the steps below:
- Set up your Microsoft Project file with two flag fields like “Flag19” and “Flag20.” Flag19 will be used to select tasks for a detailed chart and Flag20 will be used to select tasks for the executive level chart. The Microsoft Project file setup is shown below, with tasks selected for each of the two views:
- With this done, launch OnePager Pro (from the Microsoft Project Add-Ins tab or toolbar). From the Start screen, choose New. On the next screen, create the first chart by using “Flag19” and giving it the name of “Aerospace Program - Rocket Prop View”, as shown below:
- By clicking on the Create new chart button, OnePager Pro will produce the detailed chart shown below:
- Next, let's create the chart for the executive summary. For this, we’ll repeat step 2 above using “Flag20”, and giving the chart the name of “Aerospace Program - Summary”:
- Finally, by clicking on the Create new chart button again, OnePager Pro will produce the second summary chart shown below:
