Hide Non-Working Hours from the Time Axis

Beginning with OnePager 6.1, you have the ability to format working hours and non-working hours differently.

Define Working Hours

Before formatting working hours and non-working hours, you need to define your workdays. To do this:

  1. Go to Home > Chart Properties > Time Axis > Format and click on the Define Working Hours button.
  2. By default, a work week is defined as Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If this is consistent with your workday, you don't need to make any changes. If you do need to make adjustments, left-click on the workday(s) that you want to change (Ctrl+Left-click to select several at once), and then use the grid on the right to adjust working hours:

    Define the working hours for your team

  3. For example, if you wanted to define a lunch break, you could adjust the first block of working time to run from 8:00 a.m. to noon, and then add a second block of working time from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.:

    Add a lunch break to your work day.

Now that your work week is correctly defined, you can format non-working time in one of two ways:

Color Non-Working Hours Differently

If you still want to show non-working hours, but want to make it clear that work isn't taking place, you can tell OnePager to shade non-working time in a different color:

  1. Go to Home > Chart Properties > Time Axis and click on the Format tab. Choose a different color for your non-working time:

  2. Click OK, and you'll see that working hours stay white, while weekends and overnights turn gray:

Only Show Working Hours

Your other option is to hide weekends from the time axis completely:

  1. Go to Home > Chart Properties > Time Axis and click on the Format tab. Uncheck the Show Non-Working Hours box to hide non-working time:

  2. After applying this change, OnePager will remove weekends and overnights from the time axis completely, leaving only normal working hours showing in the Gantt chart:

  3. When OnePager removes non-working time, the width of the Gantt chart shrinks to accommodate fewer hours being shown. If you want, you can stretch the compressed timeline back out to give your working time more space:
