Since it was invented in 1910, Gantt Chart had undergone several crucial changes but still holds its position as project managers’ instrument of choice for illustrating the project schedule. Gantt Chart is one of Epicflow’s most used features, with its help you always know which tasks need to be taken care of at any point in time, who needs to work on these tasks, and what conditions need to be met to complete these tasks.
Interactive Gantt Chart
In Epicflow, Gantt Chart not only shows you the project schedule but lets you interact with your project, edit schedule, set dependencies, see detailed information about the user stories or milestones with one click. You can also edit stories and milestones, assign resource groups, leave comments, track progress, and see dependencies on the same screen without closing the Gantt Chart.
Gantt relationships between summary-tasks, tasks, and milestones:
- Finish to Start (FS) – the default: The task cannot start before its predecessor ends, described above.
- Start to Start (SS): The task cannot start until the predecessor starts, although it may start later. This can be useful if you have a task whose start date depends on the start date of another task.
- Finish to Finish (FF): The task cannot end before the predecessor ends, although it may end later.
- Start to Finish (SF): The task cannot end before the predecessor starts, although it may end later. This task relationship is rarely used.
