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
project 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
projects, while the right end shows its expected date of completion.
As the project progresses and
projects become partially done or
completed, the color of the horizontal bars will change to reflect
completion or percentage of completion.

my progress bar only grey? Why is my progress bar only red?
The progress bar will change from grey to red as the
project becomes partially or totally completed. A
project that is not started
- that is, it is marked as 0% done - will have a grey progress
bar. A project that is completed - that is, it is marked 100% done or
its status is completed - will have a red progress bar. Other
projects will be partly grey and partly red, proportional to the
percentage of completion.
projects 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
either a start date or
an end date, it will not have a progress bar.
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
the date navigation bar
to move in time.
