What’s a Gantt Chart Anyway?
A Gantt chart is a horizontal bar chart developed as a production control tool in 1917 by Henry L. Gantt. (Yep, that’s where the name comes from!) It's one of the most effective ways to represent project schedules. The chart showcases tasks, their durations, and the dependencies between them. People used to make them by hand, but now we can edit them in our browser in real-time.

Tips and Tricks for Effective Gantt Charting
Start with a Work Breakdown Structure: Before diving into the Gantt chart, have a clear work breakdown structure to know what tasks need to be included.
Utilize Dependencies: Don’t just list tasks; link them to show dependencies and priorities.
Review Regularly: A Gantt chart is not a 'set it and forget it' tool. Regular reviews ensure you're on track.
Linking Tasks and Visual Indicators
Tasks in a project rarely happen in isolation. Our module allows you to link tasks to show dependencies, ensuring that your team understands the sequence of work. Customizable visual indicators like color and padding make it easier to interpret the chart at a glance.
Your Data is Your Own
As with our Capacity Plan module, all data in the Gantt Chart module is stored locally on your device, giving you full control over your information.
