Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Multi-project dashboard, part of OmniPlan 3 Essential Training.
- A new Pro feature in OmniPlan 3…is called the Multi-Project Dashboard.…What the dashboard allows you to do…is actually compare multiple projects to each other.…It's not nearly as detailed as what you see…in the OmniPlan project itself…but it is pretty useful to stack multiple projects…next to each other to see how they're comparing.…So I'm already here in OmniPlan…and it's actually somewhat irrelevant…that I have a project open.…This is just going to wind up being the background here.…
What I am going to do is under File…I want to create a New Dashboard.…So dashboards are actually a new file type.…So when I do this I'm creating,…not only a new OmniPlan document,…but one called a Dashboard,…which is different than an OmniPlan.…And as you can see, I can add projects…to the dashboard by dragging.…There's also this little plus arrow,…and just to keep us from getting too many windows…on top of each other, I'm going to add using the plus arrow.…
And if I navigate to my Exercise Files,…I want to compare the Chapter Nine project file…
