Within the Teamwork.com Beta Program, you can enable the Gantt Chart Overhaul to explore the enhanced project Gantt feature.
In addition to the refreshed design, the Gantt update includes some enhancements such as filtering and critical paths.
Enabling Gantt Chart Overhaul
To enable the feature, click your profile icon in the bottom left corner of your site and select Settings from the pop-out menu.
Note: Only owner company site administrators can access the site settings.
In the settings area, go to the Beta Program subsection where you will see an option for Gantt Chart Overhaul.
Toggle the switch on the left to enable the feature. You can use the dropdown on the right to choose whether to enable it for all users on your site or only members of your owner company.
Once enabled in the Beta Program, you will see the redesigned Gantt chart when you open the Gantt tab in an individual project.
Using the Gantt chart
While viewing your project, select the Gantt tab to access the Gantt chart view.
In addition to tasks and milestones, the associated task lists will also be visible in the chart itself, making it easier to track which tasks belong to each list.
Full view option
You can optionally expand to full screen view by clicking the expand arrows in the upper right of the chart.
You can also click the three dots at the top of the Gantt chart and select Fit-to-window from the dropdown menu.
Scrolling and zooming
Using your mouse or trackpad to scroll will move you up and down through the Gantt chart itself..
To adjust the zoom level for the Gantt chart, you can use the zoom options at the bottom of the screen.
Quick set progress
You can quickly adjust the progress percentage of individual tasks directly in the Gantt view.
Hover over the bottom left of a task in the Gantt chart to reveal the hand icon. Click and drag it to increase the task's progress. The task bar will show a darker overlay color indicating the selected percentage vs the length of the task.
To edit existing progress on a task, hover over the end point where the progress currently finishes.
When moving tasks or adjusting task dates, the new dates will be displayed on the task bar as you make the change.
Showing and hiding all tasks
You can quickly show or hide all tasks within the task lists in the Gantt chart. Click the three dots in the top right and select Collapse/Expand All Task Lists from the dropdown menu.
When the task lists are collapsed, you will still see the task list names and any milestones also displayed.
Undo and redo
When you adjust tasks or dates in the Gantt chart, you can use the arrows in the upper right corner to undo/redo your changes.
Any changes you make during your current page session will be tracked, allowing you to undo/redo. However, refreshing your browser will clear the previous change history and the ability to undo/redo those specific changes.
Adjusting the task lists sidebar
You can show or hide the task lists sidebar on the left of the Gantt chart. Hover over the sidebar to reveal the collapse/expand arrow button. Clicking this will immediately show/hide the sidebar.
You can also resize the sidebar manually by hovering over the border line and dragging it to a new position.
Creating task lists
To create a new task list, click the Add Task List button in the upper right of the Gantt view.
Alternatively, click the plus icon at the bottom of the task lists sidebar on the left of the Gantt view.
Once you click either add option, a new entry will be added to the bottom of the task lists sidebar where you can type a name for the list. Press Enter / Return on your keyboard to create the list.
The enhanced Gantt chart view now includes a filters pane, allowing you to filter the tasks being displayed.
Note: Gantt filters are only available on paid per-user subscription plans.
Click the filters button in the top right of the Gantt view to open the filters pane.
Filters include assignee, tags, priority, board column, and date created.
The option to show completed tasks in the Gantt chart is located under the Options section of the advanced filters pane.
Once you select some filter conditions, the chart will update automatically with the filtered results.
Using the critical path feature, you can track impact areas on your projects, especially when there is tight scheduling of work. The critical path feature will highlight any tasks that will impact the whole project if they are moved.
Note: The critical path feature is available on per-user Premium/Grow and Scale subscription plans.
Click the three dots in the top right and select Show Critical Path from the dropdown menu.
Any affected tasks will be displayed with a red highlight border.
