Create Data-Oriented Gantt Chart Easily
Organize & Schedule Tasks Quickly

Organize & Schedule Tasks Quickly

We break down the whole project into manageable tasks in Gantt charts and schedule them by different project phases. In our Gantt chart software, you can easily drag and drop Gantt bars to change the start or end dates, rearrange tasks, and update process.

Milestones are represented by a diamond symbol on the Gantt charts and have no duration. When a milestone is shown on the chart, it means the end of a piece of work or project phase, and it usually the big dates in the project, like a clear deadline. In EdrawMax, you can tick the option on the right Gantt Chart pane and transform a bar into a milestone.

Set Linked Tasks and Summary Tasks Effortlessly

You can add links between tasks to create dependency, so your team will get information like " start task B when task A finishes." These links can be dragged from one task easily and dropped on another link.

If your project contains multi-level tasks, you can summarize them via the Indent/Outdent options on our Gantt chart maker to "roll up" the subtasks in different groups and highlight the summary tasks that are also called parent tasks. The summary tasks will show the combined information.

Note: Don’t forget to link tasks after you finish organizing them. Subtasks and summary tasks create structure, but they don’t create task dependencies.

Export From Diagram to Data

Export From Diagram to Data

When you finish your Gantt chart, is it the end? No, the data you have input into the chart is also IMPORTANT. Luckily, EdrawMax allows you to export all the data included in the Gantt and save them in common file formats (XLSX,TXT and CSV). As you don't need to log in to any account when you use our EdrawMax, you can work offline even without the Internet, and get our guarantee for the data safety.

Present, Share and Print Gantt Charts in High-Quality

Congratulations! You have completed the big project. Now it is time to present your achievements and how your team works hard on the whole phase. You can present the Gantt chart, just by clicking the Presentation button to switch into the presentation mode.

But, how can the non-Edraw users feel your joy? Don't worry. You can save your Gantt charts in the file formats that most people can open, like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, PNG/JPG, HTML, and PDF. Alternatively, why not download a high-resolution PNG or PDF to print the Gantt chart and hang it on the wall of your office?
