Gantt View

Gantt View is available on Pro and Enterprise plans.

Gantt Board View is a visual representation of project tasks and their respective timelines on a Gantt chart. This view displays tasks as horizontal bars along a timeline, allowing users to easily understand task durations, and the overall project schedule. The Gantt chart provides a comprehensive and intuitive overview of project progress, helping teams coordinate and manage tasks effectively.

Overview #

The left sidebar consists of all items that have value in at least one Gantt field (date or timeline). Next to the Item name, there is а value from Gantt field. The items are grouped by Item Group by default.

If more than one Gantt field is chosen, Items that have value in two (or more) different Gantt fields are displayed in two (or more) rows, and next to the value from the Gantt field, there is a field name. If no Gantt field is selected, no Item will be displayed in the central section until a Gantt field and a value to the field is added to the Item.

In the central section, the Items’ timelines are presented as rectangles. There is an option to customize the time period (day, week, month, quarter, year), with Weeks as default value. Based on the chosen value, the relevant period is displayed in the gantt. By clicking on the Autofit button, the overview is adjusted so that timelines fit into view, and clicking on the Now button focuses the overview on today’s date.

The Gantt chart can be zoomed in and out, filtered, sorted, exported and searched through.

To adjust view settings, click on the settings icon in the top right corner.
