Why use Gantt Views?

Gantt Views give you a dynamic way to view the timeline and dependencies between tasks and proofs within a project. Now it is even easier to identify the impact that adjusting the schedule of work will have on the overall project timeline so teams can manage projects more efficiently to hit deadlines with stakeholders.

Displaying the Gantt View

Because your projects each have unique timelines and dependencies, Gantt Views are used on a per-project basis.

To open your project's Gantt View, click "CALENDAR" from the project details view. 

To maximize the Gantt View, resize the work sidebar on the left by dragging the divider to the left, and hide the DETAILS sidebar on the right by clicking the →| icon in the top right corner. To scroll the view from left to right, click and drag any blank space.

Looking for the standard calendar view? Click "Gantt" in the top right corner to change the view.

Managing Dates and Durations in the Gantt View

Quickly add a due date to a work item without one by clicking inside the Gantt View to the right of your work item.

Non-business days will be grayed out in the Gantt View.

To adjust a work item's date range, click inside the work item's bar and drag to the left or right.

Notice how the dates for the "Concept for Ad Design" task change in the left sidebar.

To adjust the duration of a work item, click either edge of the work item's bar and drag to the left or right.

To adjust the dates or durations for multiple items at once, you can use keyboard commands to select multiple work items and shift them in bulk. Use Shift+Click to select all work items within a range, and use CTRL+Click or Cmd+Click to select individual items. 

You can also click the gray bar above every work group to automatically select all items in that work group.

Adjusting work item dates and duration does not affect work assignments under the Schedule tab.

Managing Dependencies in the Gantt View

To create a dependency between work items, click the white dot to the right of the bar for your blocker, then drag down to the white dot next to the work item it's blocking. 

You can add multiple dependencies from the same work item.

If you create an unfeasible dependency where the blocker starts after the work item it's blocking, you'll see an orange line indicating the error. Click the dependency line, then the trash icon or the Delete key on your keyboard to delete the dependency.
