Grouping and sorting into swimlanes

In many cases, OnePager reports are grouped into swimlanes:

In OnePager Pro, the default swimlane grouping is normally the "Level 1 Summary Name", which corresponds to the top-level parent task in Microsoft Project:

OnePager lets you change your swimlane grouping to any other field from your project plan. To do this, go to Home > Chart Properties > Rows/Swimlanes:

In this example, we'll change the swimlane grouping from "Level 1 Summary Name" to "Resource Names". The result shows that the chart has had its swimlanes re-grouped by resource assignment:

Multiple Swimlane Levels

Beginning with OnePager 7.0, you can have up to three levels of nested swimlanes, instead of just one. In this example, we might want to group first by Program, then by Project, and finally by Phase. This Microsoft Project schedule is set up so that Program is level #1, Project is level #2, and Phase is level #3:

To set up multiple swimlane groupings, go to Home > Chart Properties > Rows/Swimlanes. Each swimlane is on its own tab. Here, we've chose to set the third swimlane level to group by the Level 3 Summary Name, which corresponds to the Phases:

Once you click OK, OnePager will group the chart into three sets of swimlanes with Program on the left, Project in the middle, and Phase on the right, like this:
