SharePoint Gantt Chart Web Part is Light and easy-to-use tool for viewing SharePoint 2013, 2010 or 2007 tasks as a Gantt Chart. With the component a SharePoint user can have all his tasks and subtasks in a single Gantt view, easily create and complete tasks, assign resources, edit timeframes and percentage of completion with just several clicks.

SharePoint Gantt Chart View Web Part for SharePoint 2013, 2010 and 2007 is intended for advanced visualization of SharePoint tasks. With this component SharePoint users get a simple and effective tool for displaying their tasks in Gantt Chart – a popular type of bar chart that illustrates a project schedule. SharePoint Gantt Chart View Web Part is a nice and easy way to include Gantt Chart into your resource planning SharePoint applications without having to install full blown project management application such as Microsoft Project.

SharePoint Gantt Chart View displays data of the type “task” from SharePoint lists in a way that conveniently presents all the relevant information about tasks in a single Gantt view as well as provides easy tools for quick task management. With the component a SharePoint user can have all his tasks and subtasks in a single view, easily create and complete tasks, assign resources, edit timeframes and percentage of completion with just several clicks. All these actions can be done in very convenient and interactive way as the web part is a HTML5-based component. (Also, Silverlight based version is available).

SharePoint Gantt Chart Web Part allows several distinct views: standard table as well as day, week, month, quarter, 6-months and year Gantt Charts. When working with a table view you can easily resize and switch columns for convenient displaying information and edit all the data inline, i.e. without opening the task edit form. Finally, the web part is a flexibly customizable solution. You can customize each element of a diagram choosing its size, color, etc to make the component ideally fit your SharePoint environment.

Since Gantt view is mainly supposed for simple tasks management, we have added particularly necessary web part property – ability to show the Outline Number (WBS). When the property is activated, the Outline Number (WBS) is shown right next to the task name. Since the WBS column does not exist in SharePoint list, we have added WBS virtual column to resolve the issue.

The next feature provided with SharePoint Gantt Chart Web Part is real rime synchronization. This mode allows synchronization of changes made to SharePoint Gantt view by multiple people working on the tasks at the same time. When one of users makes any changes to the SharePoint Gantt Chart, the other users see them in real time without page refreshing.

It's also possible to color-code summary tasks and highlight them with choosing colors of background row and foreground row. This is one of simple ways to highlight summary tasks in the whole structure.

The last thing to announce in SharePoint Gantt Chart Web Part is "change case" functionality for TextBox, like word has with Shift+F3. Now when using the component you can switch between upper, lower and title case with standard key combination.

Displays tasks into two views — table view and Gantt chart view

One of the most modern and attractive task views is Gantt chart. Watch the Gantt structure of the tasks planned within your SharePoint site. Change their order and status with drag & drop, define parent-child relations. Effective project management tool.

Real time synchronization

Any changes you make to the tasks in the SharePoint Gantt chart are displayed instantly. No reason to run special synchronization process to make changes to the Gantt view and the data source.
