Check out the new way to display your Gantt Charts and Task Sheets!
Extended Headers For Gantt Charts & Task Sheets
The Extended Header feature displays headers vertically in an added column. Like this:
Displaying Extended Headers
This feature is available in both Gantt Charts and Task Sheets. In either, select the
Format tab and then
Large from the
Extended Headers drop down list. To remove the Extended Headers, select
None from the list.
Coloring the Extended Headers
To color the Headers, select the
Format tab and then
Text. Click the Fill tab and select Level from the "Based On" options. Define a color for each Summary Level:
Extended Headers are only available in WBS Schedule Pro version 5.1.0021 or later
If you are using version 5.x, don't have the Extended Header feature and want it, see the topic above for information on updating to the latest version for FREE!
Tip #2: Saving Views
Saving Views after Formatting
In all Charts, any time you make a change to a formatting option this information is automatically saved to the View you are currently working in. This means that any New project you create will automatically inherit the formatting options you changed.
If you do not want to save changes made to the Views as you change formatting, use the option in File-Options-Files & Views that specifies the action to take "When closing a chart". Here is the form:
The 3 options for what happens to Views when a chart is closed are:
Save all Changed Views - This will automatically save all changed views and all new projects you create will use these new Views.
Do not Save Changed Views - Discards all changes made to Views since the project was opened.
Prompt to save changed Views - Prompts you to save any changed Views and you can decide if you want to update the views or discard the changes made.
WBS Chart Pro and PERT Chart EXPERT users
If you are still using the old
WBS Chart Pro or
PERT Chart EXPERT software and haven't upgraded, we highly recommend doing so. The
WBS Schedule Pro software has so much to offer with combined
Gantt Charts plus many new and exciting features.

Start Project 2016 and leave it running.
Start WBS Schedule Pro.
From the Home tab, select the MS Project drop down arrow and select Setup MS Project.
Complete the steps as prompted.
Close WBS Schedule Pro and close Project 2016. Restart each.
This should fix it. If not, see our FAQ page for additional suggestions.
WBS Schedule Pro Licensing Tips
Transferring a WBS Schedule Pro License
To transfer a WBS Schedule Pro license, start the registered WBS Schedule Pro software and select
File-Unregister. This will put the license back so it can be registered again.
If the software is no longer available to unregister due to a re-format, hard drive crash or if you uninstalled the software without unregistering then let us know the user and we will reset the license here so you can register again.
Note: Uninstalling WBS Schedule Pro does not Unregister the software.
