GANTT Chart View in Resource Allocation Window

The Gantt View is a tool for visualizing the elements of a project, package, or diagram as well as the resources assigned to them. The tool will enable a traditional or agile project manager to ensure that a project's resources are allocated to repository content and that high-value outcomes are achieved directly from the repository.

Where Can I Find the Project Gantt Chart?

Users can access the Project Gantt Chart through the following options :

  • Ribbon: Design > Package > Gantt View
  • Ribbon: Design > Diagram > Views > Gantt View
  • Diagram Context Menu:  Switch View | Switch to Gantt View
  • Browser window Package context Menu | Open Package in | Gantt View
