If using the Link icon, the relationship is automatically Finish-to-Start relationship with 0 lag days.  If you want to specify different link type or lag time, select the dependent item and open the Item Information window & go to the Predecessors tab to make your changes.

View Menu

Select the View menu drop down to change views, save views, and delete views.  Global views show in the first section.  Only administrators can save global views.  Personal views show in the second section, if you have any saved.

Save View

Make any changes to the view, such as adding columns, arranging columns, etc.  

  1. On the View menu, select Save View.
  2. View Name: Initially, the current view name will show.  Update to a new name.  If updating a view rather than saving a new view, keep the name as-is.

Delete View

Navigate to the view you want to delete.

  1. On the View menu, select Delete View.  Deleting a global view deletes it for everyone.  
  2. Confirm deletion.

When the Gantt chart is toggled on, additional icons will show for Zoom In/Out & Scroll To.

Connected Systems

You may have additional systems integrated with OnePlan, such as Project Desktop, Project for the Web, Azure DevOps, etc.  If so, a Connected Systems icon will show on the header to connect this plan to its integrated counterpart in the other system.
