The jQuery Gantt chart is a complex scheduling and project management component, especially useful for visualizing tasks in a list and timeline. The Core GanttChart component provides treelist and timeline views so that the end users can see the project start/end date, tasks progress, dependencies between tasks, milestones and other components of a project, at a glance. The major elements include:
Make the jQuery Gantt chart look and behave the way you like with options for HTML attributes, editing, filtering, expanding, visibility, menu, and much more.
Much like many other Kendo UI for jQuery components, the Gantt component allows you to render any type of content in its columns. A common scenario is using a template to display an avatar next to a task owner.
Planning is only useful to the extent the planned time matches the actual time taken to complete the task. Therefore, the Gantt component has a built-in feature to compare planned tasks time vs. their actual execution time. This is a crucial metric for any manager to monitor to improve the planning skills of their team.
