The applied technologies and frameworks
How GanttPRO works
1. Creating a Project
To create a new project in our team task management app, a user should sign in using one of the following services: email, Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn. As soon as it happens, GantPRO will offer a Gantt chart template to start a project. Everything begins here: adding new tasks and assignments to team members, setting duration steps and project’s start/end date, setting dependencies and resources’ costs.
Step 1. New tasks
New tasks are very easy to create. Just click on Add a new task at the bottom of your project. Or simply click + and choose a needed one out of the menu.
You can always rename your task, change its type, start/end date, duration and assignees.
Step 2. Team members
In our advanced task manager app it’s easy to add members to your team. Click on Team and roles on the bottom left of the page, choose a team member and add him/her to the project. Then you can assign tasks.
Step 3. Setting dependencies
Your tasks can be connected with dependencies that are easily managed with drag and drop function. Note if one of the tasks is not completed and overdue, then all dependent tasks will be pushed forward too.
Step 4. Milestones
Milestones allow marking any significant achievement or any other significant moment in a project. Thus, nothing crucial is lost by you and your team.
Milestones are also rescheduled if a project is rescheduled.
Step 5. Critical path
Critical path in our daily task manager app shows a chain of tasks that impacts the whole project implementation. Thanks to these feature managers always know what requires special attention as well as the shortest period of time to accomplish the project.
Choose Show in settings to enable critical path.
Step 6. Project resources
This task management app is also great for project resource management. Set costs for each resource – GanttPRO will calculate project’s and resources’ costs automatically. It will also define the best combination of task reallocation and suggest how to reduce costs.
On the top right there is Settings button. Here you can always change your Project name, set a work schedule of a project, as well as duration step, view mode, skins (terrace, skyblue, meadow or broadway), enable critical path and choose progress settings.
The Filter button on the top is used to find items and project elements by names.
4. Sharing, exporting and saving as a template
You can easily share charts with your colleagues or clients via email or using links. Choose what kind of rights to give – view or view & edit.
Thanks to Export feature your GanttPRO charts can be always at hand. You can include them in your multimedia documents. Export is possible into PDF, Image, Excel or iCal formats.
Moreover, you can even create your own templates rather than choosing already existing ones.
5. History changes
Very often it’s difficult to track changes in your chart. With GanttPRO it’s no longer a problem as our app includes this function.
Click on the History button on the top of the page to view all the changes in your project. You can also view how the project looked like before the change was implemented.
6. Undo action
Made unnecessary action? Don’t worry as we handled this issue for you.
Click on Restore this version and you will return your chart to the moment before the action was implemented.
