Grouping into Swimlanes and Sub-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 (Sub-Swimlanes)

Beginning with OnePager 7.0, you can have up to three levels of nested swimlanes, instead of just one. This gives you the ability to create a parent swimlane and one or more child swimlanes or sub-swimlanes. 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 sub-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:
