Gantt charts have been around since 1903. They are great at helping you easily plan your project while also providing the team with project visibility. This biggest thing missing? The ability to execute the work directly from the Gantt chart!
When you combine Gantt charts with Kanban-style workflows in Rindle, you'll be able to seamlessly plan and execute your work.
How to create a Gantt chart
Open any existing board or create a new board
Click the board views icon (near the board name) and select Gantt
Click "+" to add a task in the left task pane
You can then name the task and set a start date with a duration. Click save to add the task to the Gantt chart
If you there are existing tasks, you can simply click on the date in the timeline to start scheduling the task
To open a task, double click the task on the timeline
Or you can locate the task on the timeline and open it by double clicking the task name in the left task pane
In no time, your project plan will come together!
Note: You can drag and drop tasks within the Gantt chart and the start and due dates will auto-update. You can also drag the edges of the task in the Gantt to change the start or due date.
Managing the Gantt chart
There are lots of ways to customize your Gantt chart to fit your needs.
Changing the timeline
By default you will see two weeks on your Gantt chart, but that can change depending on what you want to see. You can zoom out to look at all the scheduled tasks on the board.
Click the circle at the end of a task and drag to the beginning of the next task to create a dependency.
Gantt charts can be used in many different ways. To help you tailer your Gantt chart to your needs, we've provided a few settings for further customization.
To access Gantt settings, click on the cog icon in the top navigation bar.
Show Completed Tasks
By default completed tasks show on Gantt charts, but there will be some situations when you will want to hide completed tasks.

Show Unscheduled Tasks
By default, you will see all tasks in your Gantt chart, whether they start and/or due dates or not. This setting allows you to hide tasks that haven't been scheduled yet.
By default, lists that exist in Column View and List View do not show in Gantt. If you are using lists as project phases, this setting allow you to show these lists on your Gantt.
Skip weekends (with option to Hide Weekends)
If you work Monday through Friday, scheduling on weekends may not be needed. Turn on skip weekends and your tasks will automatically skip weekends as you schedule. You also hide weekend from Gantt as well.
If you plan project with dates that are moving targets (we all do!), auto scheduling just may become your best friend. Automatically adjust all of the dates in your project with a single drag and drop! Here's how it works.
