- The design of OmniPlan means that…you will do most of your work…right inside the interface.…But there are various ways that OminPlan is extensible.…That it can share its information in different ways.…Some of these are very straightforward,…like just printing out different views.…The pro version also has reports.…And then there's some choices for importing and exporting…your project, and that's what I want to look at here.…You can do this with any project at all.…And we want to start by going up under File…to take a look at Export.…
And I just want to run through some of these choices…and we'll do just one of them at the end,…but I want to talk about most of them.…You can export as an OmniPlan document, obviously.…That's going to be a little like Save As,…which does not exist in OmniPlan.…ICS files are calendar files,…so you can export in a way that can…come into calendar programs, like iCal.…Comma Separated Values, that is the actual data…put into a spreadsheet format, or CSV, or comma separated.…
And that's the one that I want to look at…
