From task list to gantt chart in 0 steps
In the beginning PriorityCentre enabled teams to easily collaborate and track meetings and tasks. All was well in the world however as time passed people’s priority lists grew longer and their teams bigger. With so many tasks and team members it became difficult to see who had too much on their plate or who was falling beyond on their tasks.
Our customers wanted a chart that showed everyone in their team and how they were progressing with their work. They wanted to know which tasks were taking longer than expected and who had the most (and least) work left to complete. In short, they (and we) wanted some sort of Gantt chart but they didn’t want to enter all the extra information such as start and end times of tasks.
So we’ve delivered a progress chart (shown below) that shows all of the tasks for each person on your team, how much they’ve worked on them and when they are likely to complete them. If you’ve estimated the amount of time a task should take then you’ll see that on the chart, if not then you’ll see the task as a milestone. If a task is taking longer than you estimated it will be highlighted in yellow and if you’ve completed it on time then you’ll see it in green.
The order of the tasks in the chart is determined by their order in your priority list. So when you reorder your tasks the progress chart is automatically updated to reflect the change. The chart also uses the work days and times you’ve configured in your account to make the chart is realistic as possible. For example, if a task is estimated to take a couple days and you’ll be starting it on Friday, it will span over the weekend until Tuesday.
The chart also displays the five most recently completed or deleted tasks to provide some context for how well you are sticking to your plan. You can play around with the chart for yourself in our demo or signup to PriorityCentre for your team.
