Improve your productivity and make your projects more readable and engaging with these advanced tips and techniques.
To do this, click the View tab , then from the Plan menu, select the task level you want to view. Let's move on to formatting the milestones. To do this, go to the format tab , select bar format. For milestones, choose the target shape and give it the color red.
In the bar menu, remove the start and end shape and change the color of the middle bar to dark blue. In the text menu, add the "name" option inside the bar, then click OK . This will display the task name directly inside the task summary bar. You will notice that the text may go beyond the bar. To solve this problem, we will change the size of the text. Go to text style , select "inner" , change to white color and choose size 8.
Go to format , then strikethrough style and add a new strikethrough line . Enter the "normal" and "delay" conditions. Select the color red . Change the pattern to your preference, then click OK . Overdue tasks will be highlighted in red.
Today's date line
You also have the option to display today's date line in red on the Gantt chart. To do this, go to the Format tab , then gridlines . Select "today's date" , change the color to red, then click OK .
The progress of tasks
To show completed tasks in green, select a task , then set its progress to 100% . Change the color to green and adjust the pattern to your preference.
Highlighting the predecessor task chain
Go to the format tab , then click on "task path" and select "predecessor" . The chain of predecessor tasks will change color depending on the selected task.
