If you are on this page, then you have successfully added your tasks to their proper projects.
A Gantt view of a project is the visual progression of the tasks as they are worked on. It includes all of the planning and scheduling information about the tasks included in the project.
Another feature that you will find in the Gantt view of the project, when you will use nTask workspace, is Task Dependencies. This is a link between different tasks that are included in the Project and are dependent on each other for the project to be completed.
Let us tell you where to see the Gantt view of a project and how to make a Link Dependency.
- Head over to the Project section on your workspace page
- To see the Gantt chart, you will have to create a project and then click on the Project Gantt icon as shown below.
It will display the Gantt after you add tasks to a project and set the planned starting and ending dates for the tasks.
- Upon clicking, you will see the tasks included in the project and on the right, you will see the Gantt view
- Here you can see a visual representation of your tasks as they progress
- You can change the duration of the tasks by sliding them through the dates mentioned just above the tasks in the Gantt view
- When you want to create a dependency between two tasks, just hover the cursor over the first task and grey circles will appear at both ends of the task
- Click the circle and hold it while you drag it to link it to the circle of the start of the second task
- When this activity is completed, you will see a red line connecting the tasks, displaying the task dependency
Your task dependency has been created. If you want to see the different progressions of the tasks i.e. Planned, Actual or Planned vs Actual, you can do that by clicking the button on the far right which looks like a square cut into three unequal pieces. Here, you can also see the Progress line and the Critical paths of the tasks.
Not only this, but you can also remove dependencies between two tasks. Following steps are required for this purpose:
- Double click on the arrow connecting two tasks.
- This double clicking will result in the appearance of confirmation pop up.
- Select YES to remove dependency/link between two tasks.
