a Gantt chart?
Gantt charts are a project planning tool used to represent the
timing of tasks required to complete a project. Because Gantt
charts are simple to understand, they are used by most project
managers to illustrate completion or progress.
In a Gantt chart, each task takes up one row. Dates run along the
top. The expected time for each task is represented by a
horizontal bar: the left end represents the beginning of the
tasks, while the right end show its expected date of completion.
As the project progresses and tasks become partially done or
completed, the color of the horizontal bars will change to reflect
completion or percentage of completion.
I see all my tasks in this chart, without having to browse
number of tasks shown on each page of the Gantt chart is
determined by the number of tasks per page in
"My Preferences" in
the "My Office" tab. To see all tasks in one page in the Gantt
chart, click on the "My Office" tab, then click on the My
Preferences link in the navigation bar to the left of your window.
In My Preferences, you can select to display up to 100 tasks per
page. Simply click on the "Update" button to enable your changes
and return to your Gantt chart.
my progress bar only grey? Why is my progress bar only red?
The progress bar will change from grey to red as the task
becomes partially or totally completed. A task that is not started
- that is, it is marked as 0% done - will have a grey progress
bar. A task that is completed - that is, it is marked 100% done or
its status is completed - will have a red progress bar. Other
tasks will be partly grey and partly red, proportional to the
percentage of completion.
tasks have no progress bar. What's wrong?
There are 2 important requirements for a task to have a progress
bar in the Gantt chart: it must have a start date AND an end
If your task has only a start date or only an end date, it will not have a progress
bar. To see a progress bar, make sure your task has both
a start and an end date.
If your task has both a start and an end date, but you still
cannot see its progress bar in the Gantt chart, it may be that its
time frame is set in another month. Simply click on the arrows
next to the month to move back or forward in time.
How do I add a task?
To add a task, click on the "Add a task"
link at right of the title bar. Then, fill out the mandatory
fields and click on the "Save" button. You must have proper
access rights to be able to add a task.
