When it comes to visually communicating your plan, a picture is worth 1000 words, or maybe 1000 tasks and milestones.
So, how can you get the pretty picture you’ve created in PowerPoint, Visio, or OnePager onto the Internet?
Dropbox, Google, OneDrive, and iCloud, are examples of popular file storage applications where organizations or teams can store/share any type of file.
SharePoint, G-Suite, and Basecamp serve as a mixture of file storage and collaboration tools that can display certain types of files within their apps.
Online, the ideal picture or image file-type for general business is a .png (for design professionals, .svg). The .png is usually nice and crisp, is a smaller file size, and will display nicely on a computer screen or via projector in a conference room.
In OnePager, it’s very easy to turn your graphic into a .png. You simply click File -> Save As -> and when the Windows Explorer window pops, modify the type of file to a .png.
Having the image of your plan front and center on your SharePoint site is a great way to answer your primary stakeholder’s immediate question: "Where are we with things?"
If you’re using PowerPoint or Visio to create your summaries, you may want to give OnePager a try. It’s meant to automate the process of generating those same visuals and could save you a LOT of time.15-Day
