Introduction to Conditional Formatting in OnePager

This series of article describes OnePager’s Conditional Formatting features. Illustrations used in this article are from OnePager Pro using data from Microsoft Project but the feature's function, controls, and manual edits apply equally to other OnePager editions that import from data sources like Microsoft Excel, Smartsheet, and Oracle Primavera P6.

About Conditional Formatting

Conditional formatting allows you to define a set of rules that alter the look of your chart as the data in your source plan changes.

It goes beyond the dynamic color-coding feature described in the article at: Task Bars Tab

The following elements can be defined by using conditional formatting rules:

  • Shape (task bar or milestone symbol)
  • Color (foreground color and background color)
  • Fill Pattern (gradient and hash fill patterns)
  • Height %
  • Border Style
  • Label Font Properties
  • Label Position
  • Legend Text
  • Priority

You can define conditional formatting rules either before or after you create new chart. To create rules before you create a chart, use the Template Properties form by navigating to the Task Bars or Milestones tab and navigating to the Conditional Formatting control group as shown below in the OnePager Pro Template Properties form:
