Frequently asked questions about Gantt charts

Gantt charts are a category of visual representations that displays a project’s tasks and crucial events (milestones) on a timeband, originally made by hand and named after American engineer Henry Gantt. Check out our visual Project Management guide to learn more about common charts and visualization tools.

Using the Gantt chart framework, it becomes considerably easier to achieve these objectives:

  • Understand complex data by viewing it as a linear time progression;
  • Schedule the concurrent workload of multiple teams across the project lifecycle;
  • Untangle intricate timelines and arrange events in chronological order;
  • Bridge the knowledge gap between technical teams and execs.

You can try different online tools, such as the free online Gantt chart maker from Office Timeline. To create your first Gantt chart, just access the app, import or type in your data and pick a template. The software will then generate a Gantt chart as a PowerPoint slide that you can share with - and collaborate on - with your team.

Project management professionals can make Gantt charts in Excel, PowerPoint and other generic software. However, the process is time-consuming and often with disappointing results. We recommend dedicated solutions like the free versions of Office Timeline that can help you generate awesome-looking graphics in minutes based on professionally-designed Gantt chart templates.

As a minimum, the best software should include these features:

  • Access to multiple templates;
  • Import from external data sources;
  • An intuitive interface and simple controls.
