OnePager Bundle is a new product that has the capability to create Gantt Charts from schedule source plans imported from Microsoft Project, Microsoft Project Server, Microsoft Project Online, Microsoft Excel, Oracle Primavera P6 and Smartsheet. Essentially OnePager Bundle combines the source plan import capabilities of OnePager Pro and OnePager Express and adds the capabilities to import source plans from Oracle Primavera P6 and Smartsheet.
Like OnePager Pro and OnePager Express, OnePager Bundle has the capability to be launched as a Standalone application where it can import source plan files from the above mentioned schedule source plan file types. OnePager Bundle can also be employed as an Add-in to Microsoft Project or an Add-in to Microsoft Excel.
Installing OnePager Bundle on a computer replaces OnePager Pro or Excel. Once installed, OnePager Bundle operates exactly like OnePager Pro or OnePager Express for source plans presented from Microsoft Project, Microsoft Project Server, Microsoft Project Online, and Microsoft Excel in either the Add-in or Standalone edition. OnePager Bundle Standalone edition is used to import Oracle Primavera P6 and Smartsheet source plans since there are no Add-in capabilities for these two source plan creation applications.
Only OnePager Bundle or OnePager Pro/Express can be installed in a single user account on a computer although OnePager Bundle and OnePager Pro/Express can be installed in different user accounts on a single computer.
As a convention, whenever we refer to the OnePager Bundle in the context of Oracle Primavera P6 or Smartsheet, we'll just say OnePager when its absolutely clear that we are discussing OnePager with Oracle Primavera P6 or discussing OnePager with Smartsheet. Since only the Standalone edition of OnePager can import Oracle Primavera P6 XML formatted, XER formatted files, and connects to Smartsheet files online, we'll just leave the suffix "Standalone" off.

Using OnePager Bundle Standalone
For OnePager Bundle users of the Standalone edition, OnePager is accessed by clicking the OnePager Bundle Icon on your desktop as shown below:
Clicking the above Icon on your desktop launches OnePager Bundle as indicated by a standard splash screen as shown here:
When the splash screen closes, the OnePager Bundle -- Chart Editor is opened and the OnePager Bundle Start form is placed in the middle of the editor as illustrated below:
With the OnePager Bundle Start form open, you are now able to access the three available modes of operation for OnePager Bundle (NEW, UPDATE, and OPEN). In all three modes for OnePager Bundle Standalone your source plan choices include Microsoft Project, Microsoft Project Server, Microsoft Project Online, Microsoft Excel, Oracle Primavera P6, and Smartsheet.
Using OnePager Bundle Standalone with Oracle Primavera P6
To use OnePager with Oracle Primavera P6 you are required to have Oracle Primavera P6 installed on your computer with OnePager Bundle, possess a valid Oracle Primavera P6 license and an account, and have Oracle Primavera P6 source plans that can be imported to OnePager. With these requirements satisfied, OnePager can access your Oracle Primavera P6 XML formatted files, ZIP formatted files, or XER formatted files and create a NEW chart, UPDATE an existing chart, or OPEN an already created chart residing on your computer.
We make the assumption here that you are experienced with exporting the above mentioned file formats from Oracle Primavera P6 to save folder locations on your computer. OnePager can import all three file formats. The XML format has a greater number of Oracle Primavera P6 column options and is usually the preferred export option. OnePager can import ZIP formatted files as it has the capability to UNZIP these files and process the resulting XML formatted data. XML formatted files are the only exported file format that contains project and user baseline data from Oracle Primavera P6.

Using OnePager Bundle Standalone with Smartsheet
To use OnePager with Smartsheet you are required to have access to the www.smartsheet.com website, possess a licensed account, and have Smartsheet source plans that can be imported to OnePager. With these requirements satisfied and the proper www.smartsheet.com access credentials available, OnePager can connect you to your Smartsheet account, access your selected Smartsheet source plan and create a NEW chart, UPDATE, an existing chart, or OPEN an already created chart residing on your computer.

Using OnePager Bundle Standalone with Microsoft Project and Microsoft Excel
OnePager Bundle Standalone when used to create charts from Microsoft Project, Project Server, Project Online, and Excel operates identically to OnePager Pro Standalone and OnePager Express Standalone. To use OnePager Bundle Standalone to access Microsoft Project, Project Server, Project Online, or Excel source plan files, you must have Microsoft Project and/or Microsoft Excel installed on your computer. To use OnePager Bundle Standalone with Project Server or Project Online, you must have access to the online source plans and valid accounts with valid credentials so that OnePager Bundle Standalone can connect and import your source plans.

Using OnePager Bundle Add-in with Microsoft Project and Microsoft Excel
OnePager Bundle is typically installed as an Add-in to both Microsoft Project and Microsoft Excel and as a Standalone. Accordingly, there is no difference in the initial or continued operations and capabilities of OnePager Bundle with respect to source plans originating from Microsoft Project, Project Server, Project Online, or Excel. The only difference seen when using OnePager Bundle instead of OnePager Pro/Express, for example, is that the color of the forms are Blue instead of Red/Green and the name of the product in the ADD-INS tab for Microsoft Project or Excel says OnePager Bundle as illustrated with the Microsoft Project ADD-INS tool bar tabs shown below:
The Add-ins tab for Microsoft Excel with OnePager Bundle installed looks like this:
Once you access OnePager Bundle from either of the Add-in Icons, OnePager Bundle operates the same as OnePager Bundle Standalone as described in the sections above.
