The Gantt Chart feature is very suitable for projects that tend to be bigger and more complex. It serves as a great communication tool and of course it integrates with our Planning Board feature for resource planning.
The Gantt Chart brings clarity to your most complex projects, for your team and for your clients. You can schedule activities by dragging and extending the bars, create milestones and add dependencies with lag and lead time. To aggregate the view you can collapse and expand the work breakdown structure.
You can add information on activities like comments, budget hours, team manager and labels for reporting purposes. You can also add progress information which can be displayed in the bars.
We enable you to customize the layout for each project. For example, you can define the colours, text in the bars and the text right to the bars. Very convenient when you have clients with specific reporting needs.
You can export the Gantt Chart to Microsoft Excel, a Jpeg file and PDF in A4 or A3 paper size. It will export the Gantt Chart to PDF exactly according to the layout you have customized.
Optimization is key
"It’s essential for us to know what our consultants are doing, so we can optimize our planning. Timewax gives us all the information we need."
You see, we wanted to bring you a project planner that’s as flexible as possible. That’s why you can create and save multiple versions of the project planning. You can create a version as a baseline, forecast and draft. This enables project managers to view and restore previous versions.
You can even compare versions with each other. For example, this enables you to analyse how the most recent project planning deviates from the baseline version.
Multi Project view
There can be a lot of complexity in managing multiple projects, so we made your project planner as simple as possible, but not simpler. With the Multi Project view, you can view the project planning of multiple projects in one screen. For example, you can view projects by project manager, status, portfolio and client.
In the Multi Project view you can edit individual projects and their activities. You can also add dependencies between projects for example when you run a program of related projects for a client.
