Gantt Chart View

This post is also available in: Deutsch

A Gantt Chart is an essential tool for organizing and tracking projects effectively. One of the primary benefits of a Gantt Chart is that it provides a clear overview of the project with its simple yet powerful visual representation of tasks and their timelines. This allows you to allocate resources more efficiently, identify potential delays, and keep the project on track.

Another advantage of using a Gantt chart is that it allows team members to see the project’s progress in real-time, ensuring everyone is aware of what needs to be done and by when. This can help promote transparency, accountability, and teamwork among project members. In addition, Gantt charts can be used to identify potential bottlenecks in the project timeline and to adjust the schedule accordingly. This can help to minimize project delays and ensure that deadlines are met.

Gantt Chart view in KanBo

A Gantt Chart view is a bar chart that shows you a project schedule in a highly visual manner. With this time-dependent functionality, you can set a visual view for all cards which are a part of the space. The cards will be seen in a timeframe view and it’s easy to see their conditions in the present day. 

This is the perfect tool for tracking cards with their relations and even creating new connections between them. With the Gantt Chart view you can focus on time dependencies between cards, as time is the essence of this view. The parent and child relation is shown in the example above.

Cards are sorted chronologically. When you change the start date of the card it can be relocated on the chart.

Informational section

On the left side, you can find the section with card names and other card detail in columns. Every row is located at the same high as the card on the chart. Add or remove columns using Display Settings.

Current time bar

The blue vertical bar in the center will highlight the present time unit (day/week/month/year etc.). This makes it easier for you to inspect the timeframes of card bars against the current date. 

There is a monthly time scale in the example above.

Time scale

Depending on the project’s needs, you can set the appropriate time scale. Select a day, week, month, quarter, half-year, or year time range. The time scale drop-down menu is located on the top right part of the view.


When cards do not fit in the view, small arrows appear along the edges of the window. You can click on it to move to the card.

Look at the other examples in this article and see the differences between time scale options.
