The duration of an activity is added by using numbers corresponding to days.
Duration can last from 0 to an infinite number of days.
A duration of 0 days, is called a milestone.
As seen below, a number corresponding to days is typed, and the right side of the gantt immediately shows the timeline being changed.
Besides giving activities a duration, it's important to make them dependent of each other.
This is used to showcase in which order the activities should be executed in.
As seen below the only action needed here is to tell each activity which other activity it is depended on.

When typing the dependency, simply write the number of the row that you would like to make the activity dependent on.
Dependencies can be typed as:
