We’re close to shipping the first version of a Gantt chart for DayBack Calendar and wanted to share a preview with you; lots of folks have been asking about this. The first version should ship as an in-app update in the next few weeks.
This new view should let you look at an entire project at a glance, as opposed to just one-month or one-week at a time. And of course, it will respect your filters so you can see just one project (filtering for that project) or perhaps just one resource across multiple projects (filtering for that resource).
We’re calling this the “horizon” view as it lets you can out past the current week or month to longer time ranges. I also like this term as opposed to “Gantt chart” since this will probably be missing a few things normally found in Gantt charts–at least in this first version. The December release won’t have dependencies, for example, or horizontal “bands” in the chart for each role or phase.
We’ll be adding some of that stuff in subsequent builds and should be able to make enhancements quickly once the main view is done, but we also recognize that “real” Gantt chart apps are too complicated for most projects–we want something that gets at the relationships between events–and lets you see everything at a glance–without lots of junk to slow you down.
Let us know if you have any feedback on the screenshot above, and stay tuned for the update!
