Gantt chart is a popular project management tool that can be used to display the timing of activities required to complete a project. It clearly shows when each activity starts and ends, and how each activity is scheduled. Each activity is represented by a bar; the position and length of the bar reflects the start date, duration and end date of the activity. With a Gantt, you can:
- set dependencies,
- reschedule tasks,
- edit tasks and filter tasks,
- gain deep insights about your project progress,
- Track how much time is spent on what tasks and for which clients in a project.
