Opening an EXISTING Project View - OnePager Pro Add-in for Version 6.0
Once project views are created, they can be re-opened from the OnePager Pro Start form. The purpose of this scenario is to retrieve a project view for inclusion in another presentation or to further edit the project view.
Using this methodology may or may not import new or old data from Microsoft Project. However, Microsoft Project needs to be launched so that you can access the OnePager Pro button.
With OnePager Pro (OPP) you have the option to install both the Add-in and desktop applications. As an alternative, you may double-click on the desired project view’s .TAM file to open an existing project view as described in the article at Opening an EXISTING Project View - OnePager Pro Desktop.
The steps to open an EXISTING project view from within Microsoft Project are shown in the steps below:
1) Launch Microsoft Project.
2) With Microsoft Project running, launch OnePager and click the OPEN button on the OnePager Pro Start form. OnePager will display a list of recently-used project views and a BROWSE FILES… option. If you click BROWSE FILES…, you will get a Windows Open form where you may select a project view to open.
3) Selecting a project view to open will tell OnePager to retrieve and display it. Source plan data may or may not be imported from the selected Microsoft Project source plan.
4) Once the project view is displayed and available, you may edit, save, and copy the project view to a Microsoft PowerPoint slide or elsewhere as described previously.
5) When a project view with multiple snapshots is opened, you may want to switch between snapshots. There are two methods to do this.
- a) The first is to use the forward/back arrows on the View tab to move between snapshot dates.
- b) The second method is to click the List All button on the View tab which will display a list of all available snapshot dates for the project view as shown below:
6) In addition to editing the opened project view and switching between snapshots you can also use the Data tab on the ribbon to replace snapshots, add snapshots, and perform custom updates. The Data tab appears as shown below:
