This is the project planning tool where you can build you project and group it into phases, tasks, appointment and future activities.
Before we introduce you to this part, we'll give you a learning oef the basic elements.
As seen below, an example of how a simple gantt project could look like.
The left side: (data side)
Here we see the data representation of the plan. This is where the user will input information to create a project plan.
The data objects are:
- Activities and groups: Each row represent an activity. Something that has to be done in order to complete the project. Activity groups are used to group/relate activities together
- Tasks: When an activity needs to be completed, it is useful to attach a task to it, as it will then be possible to execute as normal tasks are done
- Calendar appointments: Meetings are often an important part of a project, and therefore the activities can be attached to calendar appointments
The right side: (gantt side)
Here we see the result of the input data from the left side.
A visual representation of the project plan, giving the viewer a simple and easy to read timeline of the project.
There are also some interaction options centered around the ability to plan tasks and calendar appointments.
See how to create timelines in the following pages.
