Sample Files

This clinical development plan was built using the following files, which you can download if you'd like to create something similar:

Microsoft Project Samples

Clinical Development Plan.mpp (Microsoft Project Plan)

Clinical Development Plan (Project).tat (OnePager Template)


Microsoft Project Instructions

To build a clinical trial milestone timeline like the example above, follow these instructions:

  1. Download the two sample files listed above. There is a Microsoft Project file and a OnePager template file. Save both files to your desktop.

  2. Open the Microsoft Project plan.

  3. Once Microsoft Project is open, go to Add-Ins and click the OnePager Pro button.

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

  5. With the Microsoft Project file ready for import, we need to change OnePager's default template to the one downloaded above. To do this, click on Change, and then BROWSE FILES to the OnePager template (*.tat) file. This OnePager template contains all of the data-driven formatting (colors, layout, etc.) that give this timeline its specific look.

  6. With the custom OnePager template selected, click on Create New Chart to build your timeline. It should closely match the example at the top of this article.
