Swimlanes and Sub-Swimlanes

Swimlanes enable you to group and sort your project timeline or Gantt chart into meaningful sections based on any field in your project plan:

Popular swimlane groupings include program, subproject, phase, functional area, site, and resource assignments.

Nesting Multiple Swimlane Levels (Sub-Swimlanes)

While many projects only require one swimlane grouping, OnePager can support up to three. Sub-swimlanes nest within the parent swimlane from left-to-right:

In the example above, we have three swimlanes (Program, Project, and Workstream), plus a text column to depict the resource assignment.

Swimlane Formatting

You can control the look and feel of your swimlanes in OnePager by changing any of these formats:

  • Swimlane Background color
  • Swimlane Cell Color
  • Swimlane label font

All of these properties can be set using conditional formatting, or can be changed using point-and-click formatting if you prefer. For example, this conditional formatting rule will automatically turn the entire swimlane red if a single task within it has a late status:
