Customizing dates on the time axis

The time axis can appear at the top or bottom of your OnePager chart, and can include up to three levels of different time units. To configure the time axis, simply right-click anywhere on the time axis. You can also go to Home > Project View Properties > Main and click on the Configure Time Axis button.

When the Time Axis Properties form opens, you'll notice four tabs along the top.

  • Top Level: Customize the top level of the time axis. By default, the top level is set to calendar years.
  • Middle Level: Customize the middle level of the time axis. By default, the top level is set to calendar quarters.
  • Bottom Level: Customize the bottom level of the time axis. By default, the top level is set to months.
  • Advanced: Define when your fiscal year starts, whether your week starts on Sunday or Monday, and other advanced settings.

If you want to change the number of levels that are displayed on the time axis, adjust the Show Levels dropdown.

For each level of the time axis that is displayed, you'll want to select the Tic Unit (e.g. year) and the Label Format for that unit (e.g. 2037). OnePager uses a sample date of February 20, 2037, meaning that "2/20" corresponds to the "m/dd" format while "2/37" corresponds to the "m/yy" format.
