Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Zoom in and out in time, part of OmniPlan 3 Essential Training.
- The OmniPlan interface has the ability…to scale in and out vis-a-vis its view of time,…and you can do that both here in the task view,…as well as in the resources view.…So, I just want to take a close look at this feature,…because it works a little differently than you might expect.…So here we go up to the top right corner…of our Gantt chart here, and click on this scale button.…And you can see by default it's set to automatic,…and that's why the window scales to cover…everything we've put in there.…You can also have all of these choices…that are specific scales, and some will work…better than others, depending on the size of your project.…
Scheduling this to a month will make this shrink down,…and that's a little harder to look at,…but if you have a larger project…it might be exactly what you need.…And then again, you can always go back to automatic,…and then you can scale similarly,…Scale To Fit Project, and then also Scale To Fit Selection,…so if you're looking at a specific part…of a larger project, you can select it,…
The course explains how to most efficiently create and assign resources, including grouping resources, assigning duration and effort, and modifying individual schedule expectations. Learn how to use views; track project progress with critical paths, Gantt charts, and baselines; and configure different project settings. Chapter 9 shows how to work with OmniPlan Pro's expanded feature set, including Monte Carlo simulations and the multiproject dashboard.
