OnePager Pro version 7.0.5 and later supports the ability to display local custom field names and titles from Microsoft Project in addition to the default Microsoft Project field names. When importing a renamed or re-titled field from Microsoft Project, OnePager will display it in its dropdown in two different ways:
- Text1 (Custom Field Name)
- Custom Field Name (Text1)
These two entries in OnePager's field mappings point to the same Microsoft Project field behind the scenes. We just list renamed fields two different ways to make them easier for users to find.
The most common way to change the appearance of a field in Microsoft Project is to change its title. To do this, right-click on the field and choose Field Settings from the dropdown. Enter a new Title in the space provided:
In this example, OnePager will display the re-titled field two ways:
- Text1 (Custom Field Title)
- Custom Field Title (Text1)
A more advanced way to change the appearance of a field in Microsoft Project is to change its name instead of its title. To do this, right-click on the field and choose Custom Fields from the dropdown. Click the Rename... button and then enter a new name for the field where prompted:
In this example, OnePager will display the renamed field two ways:
- Text2 (Custom Field Name)
- Custom Field Name (Text2)
Note: Microsoft Project does allow users to both rename and re-title a field simultaneously and does not require that the name and title be the same. This is generally not a good idea, but in cases where it happens, OnePager will display the title of the field as opposed to the name, since that is what Microsoft Project displays more prominently.
