After you make changes to your plan, you will need to click the Save button to save those changes.
The work plan will not save right away, allowing users to review their plans prior to saving. The save button also allows users to revert the plan (not save) if they do not like the changes they made
The save button Improves performance when editing a work plan since it will not have to wait for auto save.
You cannot add new work items when Grouping is on.
Click the Add Item button to add tasks, or other work items to your work plan. OnePlan supports many kinds of work items to best suit your work method.
You can also add items from the form at the bottom of the screen.
You cannot expand or collapse your work plan if Grouping is on.
Click the Expand icon to show all work items and sub-items in the Work Plan.
Click the Collapse icon to minimize the work items.
Use the Indent and Outdent icons to build out the work breakdown structure (WBS). Indenting makes an item a child item.
To indent or outdent the tasks, you must sort the WBS column first. Once the tasks are in WBS order, you will be able to indent and outdent tasks.
You cannot indent or outdent work items when Grouping is on.
When you indent or outdent a work item with Timesheet Hours, a message will prompt you to recalculate your schedule to update timesheet hour calculations. This serves as a helpful reminder, ensuring that users are aware of the potential impact on timesheet hours and prompting them to recalculate for accurate scheduling information.
In the example below, Document lessons learned is at the same level as Scope. When we indent Document lessons learned, it becomes a child of Scope. Notice the WBS order number has changes from 2 to 1.6, indicating that Documenting lessons learned is the sixth child of Scope.
It is best practice to sort the WBS column before you link tasks.
