This Youtube ad has been driving me insane so I decided to write an article about Redmine X Gantt chart. You don't have to build one, you just install our Redmine X Gantt chart plugin and you are good to go.
Instead of going through all features and bragging about how easily you can move tasks around the canvas, let me just point out 4 undeniable advantages Redmine X Gantt Chart has over the competition that will make you want to have it.
Project & Global View
Managers need to see their projects in time, however, if they manage a portfolio of projects, they need to see the bigger picture. With Redmine X Gantt chart, you can see all company projects and filter them according to whatever parameter you choose.
Redmine X Gantt chart features the same advanced filtering as Redmine issues have. Meaning you can filter whatever you need to: tracker, assignee, period that will focus the canvas, milestone, or a project. This filtering is the greatest strength of Redmine, and now it is the greatest strength of the Redmine X Gantt chart.
Creating & Editing Tasks Within the Gantt View
When planning any project, you need to quickly adjust task parameters or quickly create a task you can edit later on. With the Redmine X Gantt chart, you don't need to leave the Gantt view at all. You can create tasks, milestones, sub-tasks and edit their basic parameters right from the Gantt.
Moving The Whole Project Including Sub-projects & Tasks
This feature alone is a reason to get the Redmine X Gantt chart. Imagine you need to move the whole project by a month. You have 3 sub-projects and about 100 tasks. In Redmine, this is virtually impossible, but using Redmine X Gantt chart, it is a matter of 60 seconds. Plus you can disable notifications so Redmine doesn't send notifications to all people assigned to those 100 tasks.
Did these 4 features convince you, Redmine X Gantt chart is the right one for you? I know they did.
