Importing Project for the web (P4W) data into OnePager

OnePager Pro and Bundle 7.2 and later support Project for the Web, often abbreviated as P4W, in the public cloud. Project for the web is a component of Microsoft Project Plan 1, Plan 3, and Plan 5.

Here's how to import a project from P4W into OnePager to create a timeline or Gantt chart:

  1. Start with a project in P4W, which should look like this:

    Keep in mind that Project for the web is a cloud application that you access from your web browser. It is separate from other Microsoft Project applications that you may have used in the past, including Project Professional (desktop *.mpp files), Project Online, and Project Server.

  2. Start OnePager from the desktop icon. OnePager imports P4W projects directly from the cloud, and not the Microsoft Project add-in that some users are familiar with:

  3. When the start screen, click NEW.

  4. From OnePager's import wizard, go to Browse > Project for the web.

  5. If you haven't used OnePager with P4W previously, you'll need to sign in:

    Your User Name and Password are the same as what you use to log into P4W through a web browser. Your Server URL is the first part of the web address that you see in your browser, and ends with "dynamics.com". Don't include any portion of the URL after "dynamics.com", as OnePager doesn't require it.. We have more details on how to determine your P4W URL if needed.

    If you are on a trusted device and trusted network, you can check the box to Save Password so that you don't have to sign in again next time.

    Both OnePager Pro and OnePager Bundle support basic authentication into Project for the web. OnePager Bundle also supports modern authentication, so if you need to connect using modern authentication instead of a traditional username and password, you will need to upgrade from OnePager Pro to OnePager Bundle. Modern authentication will also require you to consent to OnePager accessing your P4W data:

    Modern authentication consent so that OnePager can connect to Project for the web. Permissions Requested. This app would like to (a) Access Common Data Service as organization users, (b) Sign in and read user profile. Consent on behalf of your organization.

  6. Once OnePager is connected to P4W, you will see a list of all of your available projects. You can click on one project to select it, or hold down the Ctrl key while left-clicking to grab more than one project. Once you have selected the project(s) that you want, click OK.

  7. Back in the import wizard, choose the Select individual tasks to import option to select which tasks from P4W should be included in your OnePager chart:

  8. OnePager will display all of the tasks in your P4W project. Check the box next to any tasks that you would like to import and then click OK:

    Want to use a custom flag field to filter your project instead? While P4W supports flag fields like traditional Microsoft Project, those flag fields are unfortunately not available for import by partner applications like OnePager, so cannot currently be used for task selection. We've requested that Microsoft make custom fields available externally, and suggest that you upvote this request with Microsoft so that they give it the attention it deserves:

  9. Click Create new chart. OnePager will import your selected tasks from P4W and create a chart that looks like this:
