The Gantt chart
A Gantt chart is a tool that enables you to visually and simply monitor the progress of a project plan. A Gantt chart is made of a left column that identifies all the project steps and a calendar on the right (day, week, month, etc.) where tasks are represented as horizontal bars spread over several days, weeks or months. Find this tool in the Planzone project management software!
With the Gantt chart...
Plan all the elements associated with your project tasks to provide context: assignees, deadlines, allotted and estimated time, percentage of completion.
Your Gantt chart automatically updates as your work progresses. Monitor its evolution by means of visual markers.
Monitor in real-time the assignment of tasks on all projects as well as their progress with the multi-project Gantt.
Create milestones to identify the major stages of your project. Avoid deadlines set too far in the future.
Arrange your Gantt chart as you wish by sorting the information by deadline, implementation date, assignee, priority...
Create dependencies and inter-task constraints with a simple drag-and-drop.

Ideal for project planning
Used in all fields of activity, the Gantt chart planning enables you to think about every task that constitutes a project. The idea is to put the project in order before it even begins, to view all the steps and distribute them easily among the teams. Whether the project is composed of 10, 50 or 100 steps, the structure of a Gantt schedule remains the same. Managers will then be able to estimate the cost and time of a project more easily.
A better work organization
With the Gantt chart, the project manager gets better visibility across project tasks and he can monitor the progress of all the steps or milestones that make up the project. What are the urgent tasks? Are some tasks dependent on other tasks upstream? How to distribute workload among the project team members? With a simple Gantt chart, the project manager can make quick decisions. If this planning software is accompanied by a task management, resource management and business tracking tool like Planzone, it becomes the essential tool for a successful project!
