To get started, we will open a new project. To do this, click on 'File' , then select 'New' . This will give you a blank project to work on.
If you want to hide the 'TIMELINE', simply go to the 'View' tab and uncheck 'Timeline' .
Next, let's add or hide a column. To do this, right-click on the header of an existing column . If you want to add a column, select 'Insert Column' . To hide a column, select 'Hide column' .
Another useful feature is assigning resources and adding the duration of a task, which you can do directly in the Gantt chart.
To add a milestone, create a task and assign it a duration of '0 days'. This will automatically turn your task into a milestone.
Adding a summary task is also simple. Right-click on the row where you want to add this task, then click 'Add Task' .
Finally, to link subordinate tasks to the summary task, start by selecting the relevant tasks . Then, in the 'Task' tab, click on 'Lower Tasks' . They will then be grouped under the summary task, which makes it much easier to manage and organize your project."
