The project plan features:

  • Automatic grouping of tasks into swimlane based on the phase of the audit.
  • Percent complete markers to indicate audit progress.
  • Comment boxes to call out important audit results and actions.
  • Vertical curtains to separate each phase of the audit project into a different-colored region.
  • Custom font and color selections to match a corporate branding standard.

This annual audit project schedule was created using OnePager Pro, a project presentation tool from Chronicle Graphics that uses data exported from Microsoft Project.

For Microsoft Project users:

For Excel users:


To build an annual audit project plan like the example above, follow these instructions:

  1. Download one set of the sample files listed above. The Microsoft Project and Excel files contain the audit project plan, and the matching OnePager template file has most of the settings that drive the look and feel of the Gantt chart based on the data from either Project or Excel. Save both files to your desktop.

  2. Open the Microsoft Project or Excel plan.

  3. Once the project plan is open, go to Add-Ins and click the OnePager button.

  4. When the start screen appears, click NEW to build a new chart.

  5. Change OnePager's default template to the one downloaded above, making sure that you pick the template that matches the Microsoft Project or Excel plan that you downloaded. To do this, click on Change, and then BROWSE FILES to the OnePager template (*.tat) file. This OnePager template contains most of the data-driven formatting (colors, layout, etc.) that give this annual audit project plan its specific look.

  6. With the template loaded, click on Create New Project View to build your chart. It should closely match the example at the top of this article.
