About Editing Percent Complete

Percent complete displays are driven by the Percent complete field data imported from the Microsoft Excel source plan. Any number field ranging from 0-100 in your Excel file can be used for percent complete.

When you want to display Percent complete information, it is essential that these data be properly represented in the associated Microsoft Excel source plan before the data are imported to OnePager Express (OPX).

Editing All Task Percent Complete Displays

Chart Properties Form - Task Bars Tab

All Percent complete displays are edited without changing the settings in the current Template by clicking on the Chart Properties button on the Home ribbon in the Settings group. Next, navigate to either the Task Bars tab and ensure that the Percent complete checkbox is checked ON as shown below:

Set Percent-Complete Properties Form

Click the %Complete Properties button to access the Set percent-complete properties form shown here:

There are three checkbox controls in the Set percent-complete properties form:

  • The first is associated with the new feature in OnePager Express version 7.0 for Honoring non-working times when OnePager Express version 7.0 represents Percent complete when Non-Working Times are being considered in the chart.
  • For changing the properties of the percent complete bar and
  • To change the properties of the percent complete related text.

Honoring Non-Working Times

Checking the Honoring non-working times checkbox On tells OnePager Express version 7.0 to consider the inclusion of Non-Working Times in the representation of %Complete in the chart.

Show Percent-Complete Bars

Checking the Show percent-complete bars checkbox On enables controls over the color of the percent complete bar displayed in the task and the height of the percent complete bar within the task bar as a percent of the total task (Gantt bar) height. Clicking the %Complete color dropdown menu accesses the standard Color Chooser where you can set the specific color for the percent complete bar. You can also use the %Complete height control to set the relative height of the Percent complete bar as a percentage of the total task bar height. When selecting a percentage for the percent complete bar height, recall that task bars can vary in height through manual editing. Therefore, applying this control to all task bars results in varying heights for the percent complete bar as well.

Show Percent-Complete Text

Checking the Show percent-complete text checkbox On enables control for the percent complete text (numerical) associated with the task. You can choose to display the percent complete bar only, the percent complete text only, or both using these two checkboxes. When enabled, you have the following controls to edit the appearance of the percent complete information for all task bars:

The %Complete font controls respond exactly as other text font controls found elsewhere in OnePager. Clicking the %Complete font dropdown menu button accesses the standard Set font properties form. Similarly, the Label position dropdown menu button gives you access to the eleven (11) available positions to place the percent complete text.

Finally, the Separator dropdown menu button provides you with eight options for separating the percent complete text from the task bar label. When the %Complete checkbox is checked On and both the Show percent-complete bars and Show percent-complete text checkboxes are checked On in the Set percent-complete properties form, the percent complete information for tasks looks like this:

Editing Individual Task Percent Complete Display

The default settings for displaying Percent complete information for individual task can be edited as follows:

Selecting Individual Task or Tasks

You can select the task shape by right-clicking on it to access the context menu with the Format… command or click the Format… button on the Home ribbon after selecting the desired tasks/milestones.

Accessing the Change Task/Milestone Properties Form

Using either method, click the Format... command to access the Change Task/Milestone Properties form. Then, navigate to the Percent Complete tab in the Change Task/Milestone Properties form which looks like this:

Go to the Percent Complete tab as shown above controlling the display of the Percent complete (%) bar on the selected task and the placement of the numeric text for Percent complete information. The Show Percent Complete checkbox allows you to turn On and Off the display of Percent complete information for the selected task. When the Show Percent Complete checkbox is checked On, you have the option to display either the Percent Complete bar within the selected task or the Percent Complete numeric text or both by checking the appropriate checkboxes as illustrated above.


As an example, if all task shapes are globally set not to display percent-complete, (1) we can select a particular task shape with a right-click, (2) navigate to the Percent-complete tab on the Change Task/Milestone Properties form, (3) set the appropriate checkbox to display percent-complete text, and (4) position the percent-complete text into the boundaries of the task shape itself as shown below:

With the Show %Complete Label checkbox ON, OnePager displays the numeric value of the Percent complete in a position you determine by selecting an option from the dropdown menu to the right of the Show %Complete Label checkbox. When you click the OK button on the Change Task/Milestone Properties form, the edited task shape looks like this:

Clicking the %Complete Font dropdown button accesses the standard Font properties form so you can edit the Font properties of the %Complete label and numeric text.

Resetting Default Properties for Mavericked Task Shape

The Use %Complete Defaults button bar, when clicked, changes the task’s %Complete properties to those currently specified as global in the current Template form.
