Filtering Your Primavera P6 Activities for OnePager

When creating a OnePager chart from Primavera P6, you usually don't want to include every single activity. Follow these instructions to learn how to filter your P6 schedule before importing it into your OnePager Gantt chart:

Creating a User Defined Field for OnePager

  1. In Primavera P6, go to Enterprise > User Defined Fields or follow Oracle's instructions on how to create user-defined fields in Primavera P6.

  2. Click Add, and create a custom text field called "OnePager" that applies to your activities:

  3. Close the User Defined Fields window, and then right-click in your Activities layout, and choose Columns...

  4. Expand the User Defined group of columns, select the custom OnePager field that you just created, and add it to the Selected Options before clicking OK.

  5. Now, place a "Yes" or a "Y" next to the P6 activities that you would like to include in your OnePager chart:

    You can leave the field blank for any activities that you wish to exclude from your OnePager chart.

Applying the Filter in Primavera P6 (Optional, Excel Only)

  1. If your P6 schedule is large, you may want to have Primavera filter it before you export it to Excel for use with OnePager. If you're exporting to Primavera's XML or XER formats instead of Excel, you do not need to filter anything ahead of time.

    If you do want to establish an Excel filter, go to View > Filter By > New to create a new filter in P6:

  2. Create a filter called "OnePager Filter". Ensure that the filter looks at the "OnePager" field and finds activities where the value is set to "Yes":
