“Even the simplest tools can empower people to do great things”.
I do not know how many have come across this quote before. But I must say it’s a well-said statement. There are many technical tools around us that helped humans in bringing greater things in their lives. Especially the work tools at business workplaces have helped individuals in bringing their best in terms of work, time or capacity.
This blog takes you through an interesting application- Gantt View for Scheduling, which can be implemented at your business place for efficient and smart management of business projects.
How many of you have heard of Gantt's view? Well, there can be many who are familiar at the same time unfamiliar with the concept. Well for the unfamiliar crew, let me explain.
In the early scenario, the business sector faced many challenges with respect to its project management or task management. The people involved in the task- like Project Managers, Team Leaders, Operation Managers, Scheduling Managers, Work Managers or Marketing Managers used paper to plan their schedules with colored blocks, which was quite hectic in terms of viewing the project progression. Later came the innovation of Magnetic blocks and popular Gantt planning tool for automating and streamlining every stage of the project, offering great relief to the project associates.
The Gantt View for project scheduling thus helped the Project Managers and other project associates to save their time in viewing the project progress, clubbing together the similar tasks or automating the process like adding milestones or identifying the project’s critical path. The application helped in generating a shareable project plan for quick view and analysis.
No matter how big or small the project is, the application helped in offering a flawless view of the project status like- Start date of the project, end date of the project, period of tasks, grouped tasks, link between similar tasks and more.

With the same mission, the organization has built the application titled Gantt View for Scheduling. The application envisions in radically improving project management in a business organization. The app gets you with a better visualization of the tasks and enables the end user to plan and schedule their project in the streamlined fashion.
Moreover, the Gantt view application helps in grouping together all the similar records of a project. Further, these similar records can be given with a link to the parent record. This enables with a better view of the project progress, as one can see the progression along with the parent record.
In addition, one can also easily change the timelines for a project by enabling the drag and drop option. One can easily drag and drop the records in order to bring in changes with respect to the project’s time and date. Any changes made with respect to the same shall be automatically reflected in the backend as well.
In case if you are dragging the child records, you may need to use the reload button at the top for affecting the changes to the parent record.
The app- Gantt View for Scheduling, provisions the end user with five different views:
1. Quarter Day
2. Half Day
Let’s have a deep look into the features again.

From the Gantt view, the drag and drop option allows the end user to change the timeline for the tasks. The task’s timeline will be updated based on where he/she dragged that task.
