What is a Gantt chart?
A Gantt chart (also known as a harmonogram) is a floating horizontal bar chart that helps to visualize the work breakdown of a project and its schedule.It lists the individual tasks on a vertical axis, and time intervals on a horizontal time axis.
The length of the horizontal bars shows the planned time for each task.Their start and end points display from which date or time to which has been scheduled.
The Gantt chart helps project managers to estimate and later track the whole project. With it, you can easily visualize which tasks run parallel to each other and their dependencies.
Vizzlo’s Gantt chart was designed to assist project managers in planning and communicating their projects, assigning activities to team members, and tracking the work progress. It makes it easy to plan and grasp task-related and project-wide milestones and deadlines, as well as critical dependencies.
