Gantt Chart View
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 enables 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. Additionally, 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.

Current time bar
The blue vertical bar in the center will highlight the present time unit (day/week/month/year etc.). This makes easier for you to inspect timeframes of cards bars against the current date.
There is a monthly time scale in the example above.
Depending on the project needs, you can set the appropriate time scale. Select a day, week, month, quarter, half year or a year time range. 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 appears along the edges of the window. You can click on it to move to the card.
