The Gantt Chart web part is a modern Gantt chart with interactive features. Currently there are two types of Gantt Chart:
The Gantt Chart web part supports the following:
Project Task Hierarchy reporting in the Gantt Chart web part also supports the following:
Cross-project reporting (using the Project cache) also supports the following:
Note: Sorting by icons is not recommended as it may not work as expected.
Note: For the best Gantt experience we recommend using a modern browser. You may experience unexpected behaviors using Internet Explorer, especially with larger numbers of items.
The Gantt Chart web part supports the following Data Sources:
The Data Source can be filtered using views or by using CAML.
The Project Cache is designed primarily to speed up the loading of cross-site project reports that report across multiple sites. By default, all items in the Project Cache are shown but you can filter the project items displayed by any of the three out-of-the-box views: All Projects, Open Projects and My Projects or by using CAML. This option appears in data sources if the Project Cache is activated, (which it is, by default out-of-the-box).
The Gantt Scope can be set to report on Current Site only, or the Current Site and all its sub-sites. When in a Portfolio reporting site the only option will be Current Site.
Project Task List
Selecting a project task list as the Data Source will report on all tasks in the list. Filtering options will be introduced in later releases.
You can set the height of the Gantt Chart by inputting a pixel value. The default height is 450 pixels. You cannot set the height below 300 pixels.
Tip: The height should not be set to more than the typical screen size. This can cause the column heading to scroll off the top page.
Enter a title for the web part.
Chrome types available are: Default, Border Only, None, Title and Border, and Title Only.
Select the columns to be represented in the Gantt Chart's timeline:
To configure the columns displayed in the Gantt, select the columns to be included and the order in which you want them to appear.
For each column, you can also set custom properties:
This applies when configuring for the Project Cache only.
Select up to four sort columns. Specify either Ascending or Descending sort order for each column.
This sorting is the default sorting used each time the page is opened. The columns within the Gantt can also be sorted by clicking on the column's heading. Ctrl-Click a column heading for multi-column sorting. This type of sort will only remain in place while the page is open.
