What is a simple Gantt chart?
When it comes to managing projects, you need tools to make them manageable. That includes charts to help you and your team collaborate efficiently. A Gantt chart is a breakdown of a complex project into pieces. It lets you communicate your project timeline visually in an easy-to-understand way. You get a list of all the required steps that need to be taken before the project is completed, without losing the big picture. The Simple Gantt is an easy-to-use project timeline template. The bottom of the chart shows the time period of your project. Each bar represents a task. The length of a bar marks the duration planned for each task, its start and end dates. Additionally, milestones can be placed on top of your timeline.
