The Gantt chart is a project management tool which provides a Microsoft Project-like interface for scheduling and managing projects. Its intuitive user interface lets you visually manage tasks, task relationships, and resources in a project.
Instantly load large numbers of records along with predecessors.
Perform scrolling and other actions without any lag even when dealing with large numbers of records.
Relationships can be specified among different tasks to determine the order in which the tasks need to be performed. The relationship links can be finish-to-start, start-to-finish, start-to-start, and finish-to-finish types.
Columns can be sorted based on either a single field or column, or on multiple columns or fields.
Data across all columns can be filtered.
A task’s fields, such as duration, start date, end date, predecessors, etc., can be edited directly in their respective cells, using dialog, or interactively using taskbars.
Different time scales such as hour, day, week, month, and year views can be configured.
The Gantt control provides support for a resource allocation view. With this view, users are able to interpret tasks occurring on the same dates and the overallocation of resources in a project.
Work week is used to define the working days or productive days in a week in a project. It is possible to define both continuous and intermittent days as working days.
A working time range is used to define the task`s start date and end date with time values. The provided time ranges will be calculated to render taskbars in the schedule.
A critical path is used to highlight which task will affect the project schedule.
A work breakdown structure in Gantt represents the entire project’s activities in various submodules. It is used to split large tasks into manageable small tasks.
Using the context menu, you can indent, outdent, delete, or edit a selected task. You can also add new tasks.
Column chooser allows the end user to show or hide columns at runtime.
Different types of selections are possible.
You can select a single cell or multiple cells in Gantt.
Row selection can be enabled or disabled in Gantt using a property.
Important days or events in a project can be highlighted using strip lines.
Holidays denote the nonworking days.
Baselines are used to compare the current progress of a task with the original planned progress.
Resources are represented by staff, equipment, materials, etc. We can show and allocate the resources for each task.
Toolbar contains options for editing, searching, expanding, collapsing, indenting, outdenting, and deleting selected tasks. It also contains options for adding new tasks.
The content can be localized to any specific culture.
Gantt content can be exported to Excel and PDF files.
