    I am exploring the Kendo UI Gantt chart to fulfill a requirement in my application, to allow users to drop events (tasks) onto a chart for planning purposes.  Two questions I was hoping for some feedback on would be - 

    1 - Is it possible to explicitly set a start and end date for the Gantt chart?  For instance, could I specify that the Gantt should show the current month, through 6 months into the future, regardless of any tasks being assigned to a date in the future?

    2 - Is it reasonable to think that I can manually initialize a new task in the chart, via dragging and dropping an object from outside the Gantt, into the viewable Gantt area?

    Hello Andrew,

    I'm afraid that both of these features are not currently implemented in the Gantt. For the first one, I would recommend suggesting it on UserVoice so that it gains some traction and gets implemented. For the second, you may use the drop event of the component that you are dragging from (e.g. Draggable, or TreeView) accordingly, but you'll need to determine the correct position of the newly created task, because there is no official API for that.
