PROJECT TASKS and DATE MANAGEMENT
Easy to input Tasks/Sub-Tasks: This is one of the most challenging issues in project management. In our Gantt Chart template, we’ve used a well-known method called WBS (Work Breakdown Structure) You can either choose from dropdowns, write them manually or simply copy and paste from an existing spreadsheet.
Easy Sorting: You have already created your tasks but later on you notice that you have to add a subtask to an existing task. You don’t need to deal with deleting/inserting rows. You are free to input the tasks in any order you like. Just click the “Sort Table” button and it will automatically sort your tasks according to the WBS numbers.
Auto Sub-Totals: Sometimes we create many sub-tasks and want the duration of the main task to be calculated automatically by summing up its subs. This feature handles all the hassle. And it is optional. You can turn it off and create your Gantt chart with full freedom.
Categories and Automatic Coloring: You can use categories in both grouping your tasks and painting them. If you wish, you can define different colors for each of your categories and have them painted automatically in the Gantt chart.
Duration Days and Force Start-End Dates: In the simplest way, you can use the tool by inputting days for each task. But if you want some specific tasks to start or end on certain dates, the tool also allows the user to input manual start/end dates. If any manual date is inputted, background calculations follow this information.
Bold Tasks and Indent Sub-Tasks: You have lots of main tasks and sub-tasks, and want to make the main tasks bold for easier reading? You don’t need to deal with formatting, this feature does it automatically. It also indents the subtasks according to the WBS numbers.
Progress: This is an optional feature. If you want to see what percent completed any task is, you can use this column.
GANTT CHART REPORT and VIEW OPTIONS
Daily/Weekly/Monthly View: This selector lets you choose a report view from 3 different options. Besides, you can even choose how you want to show Day Initials (First letter, First 2 letters or hide)
Report Depth Feature: This is quite cool for project managers. You can choose to see the report based on main tasks only. This lets you to see the “big picture” of the project. Or you can select to see the deepest details. This is handy for micro-management of sub-tasks.
Holidays and Off-Days: Not every project stops at weekends. It all depends on your business nature and Someka Gantt Chart Maker also lets you to customize this. You can choose which days of the week are off-days. Also you can define national holidays or other specific dates on which project will be on hold. All calculations in the background will be made considering your inputs and selections. The template will skip holidays while calculating task durations to let you make the most correct project time planning.
Show / Hide Holidays: Above we have mentioned how flexible the tool is for holidays and off-days. In addition to that, you can show or hide holidays on your Gantt chart report. (If you decide to show, you can even paint holidays and off-days to the color you choose!)
