How to Use a Gantt Chart Maker
A Gantt chart maker is a tool that helps you plan projects, schedule tasks, create task dependencies, balance resources and more—all on a visual timeline.
Make a Gantt chart on your own by following these step-by-step instructions.
1. Enter Your Tasks
Start by listing your tasks. Don’t worry, you can always edit the list later. Once you have your tasks in the tool, our software allows you to choose from multiple project views, such as a list, calendar or kanban board.
2. Add Summary Tasks
Add summary tasks to beef up task details. This includes the planned start and finish of your tasks. You can set the duration and add resource costs. There are also columns for percent complete, actual start and finish.
3. Set Dates
Set dates to begin scheduling. Mark the planned start date and planned finish date to estimate each task’s duration. As things change in the project, it’s easy to edit the dates: just drag and drop the timelines.
4. Add Dependencies
Link dependent tasks on the Gantt chart to avoid bottlenecks. You can drag and drop the task to set task dependencies, or use the link button. This simple step prevents headaches later.
5. Add Milestones
Add milestones to break up your project into smaller phases and set short-term goals. To make a milestone, just highlight a task. Click the milestone button, and it’s represented on the Gantt as a diamond.
6. Set a Baseline
Baselines capture original target dates, so you can compare your plan to what actually happens during the execution phase. Looking at planned versus actual progress shows whether you’re on track or not.
Teams can collaborate by commenting on tasks on the Gantt chart. Tag anyone in the project group, and they’re instantly notified by email. Add detailed instructions and attach files to each task.
8. Add Custom Columns
Add custom columns to track additional currency, a Jira link, a PO number and more. Use as many columns as you need. Additional columns added to one project won’t be added to all projects: our Gantt chart creator adapts to each project.
9. Add Expenses
Add expenses and stay on budget. Add four types of expenses: planned resource cost, actual resource cost, planned cost and actual cost. Now you’ll never be surprised by a spike in your expenditures.
10. Assign Tasks
Invite team members to the project, and start assigning them tasks. If you first set up their availability and working hours, you can assign the tasks by number of hours, and it will also populate the planned resource cost. Once your team is working, you can keep track of their progress.
Standout Features of Our Gantt Chart Maker
Use a Template or Import Your Plan
Start a project from scratch, import a file or use one of our industry-specific templates. Simply fill in the blanks, and your tasks populate on a dynamic project timeline. You can now start assigning work to your team right from the Gantt. Planning and scheduling have never been so efficient.
See Your Schedule and Progress in One Place
Make a schedule and stick to it: baselines, milestones and the critical path all keep you on track. Watch your team update their tasks in real time, and track your planned versus actual progress to keep an eye on slippage. Do it all without leaving the Gantt view.
See Team Availability and Current Workloads
Assign the right task to the right person. You’ll always know who’s ready for more work thanks to our resource tools. Track team availability across your portfolio, and incorporate PTO and holidays into the project schedule. You can even balance workload with a few clicks to keep everyone working at capacity.
Keep Track of Your Project Costs
Know what you’re spending money on by comparing planned costs to actual costs. Manage your resource expenses, including budgeted equipment and supplies. Our Gantt creator even automatically calculates your team’s hourly rate as they log their hours. Cost can be inputted manually too, so nothing gets overlooked.
Filter Your Gantt Chart How You Want
Slice and dice your project plan by filtering for the critical path, milestones and specific tasks. See due dates for today or the week. You can even use multiple filters to customize your Gantt to see the information you want. Add as many columns as you need and change the colors to match your tastes.
Get Tasks Online and Share Them
Import a task list from any spreadsheet and keep your original settings. Tired of using Microsoft Project? Our Gantt chart maker can import MPP files. Now you can easily edit the project and can share it with your team as a PDF or a print out. No more collaboration hurdles to clear. You can even export your project with all the changes intact.
