How to work with Gantt chart view

In Actionspace, Gantt chart mode allows to set automated task workflows as well as create new tasks, link dependent tasks and change deadlines.

To view the Gantt chart mode, open the project and click  . Please note that Gantt chart mode is available only when all tasks in the project have deadlines.

Task duration is displayed as a colored rectangle . Tasks can be scheduled only within the project timeframe. Gantt chart can be viewed in different display modes: Fit to Screen, Days, Weeks, Months, Years.  To zoom-in or zoom-out Gantt chart view, click  or  below the task list.  To view the entire project chart at a single screen, click 
The tasks can be scheduled only within project time limits. The duration of consequent tasks must not exceed the project duration.

How to change task duration and task deadlines in Gantt chart view:

To change the task duration, move the cursor to the edge of the colored rectangle. The cursor changes to a double-headed arrow and you can stretch or shorten the rectangle to the desired date. Changes will be saved if a new date is selected within the project timeframe.

To move a task to another date, move the cursor to the center of the colored rectangle. The cursor changes to a crossed arrow. Then drag the box left or right to the desired date.
