Flash interactive Gantt (using Gantt4Flex and Flex)

Added by Cristian Spiescu over 6 years ago

Hello,

My team and I, we have been using redmine since 2007 and we are very satisfied with it.

I would like to contribute with a Gantt widget, written in Flex (i.e. compiled as a Flash application), using the Gantt4Flex library: http://www.gantt4flex.com/

It would allow a high degree of interactivity: not only see, but also modify directly from the Gantt diagram (e.g. modify task start/end, reassign subtask to other subtask (or target version), expand collapse sections, etc). An example of how this could look like is found here: http://www.gantt4flex.com/gantt4flex/samples/GanttSamples.html

What do you think about this?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Cristian.

I think I should have put my topic in the "Open discussions" forum, according to the instructions. Perhaps the moderator could move it there if he thinks it is the case? (As I don't see how I can move the topic by myself).

Regards,
Cristian.

This is a great idea - the present Gannt in Redmine leaves a lot to desire, so this would be a welcome addition. I would even mean that this should be a part of the core.
What I do not understand, is have you made this or are you about to?

I think you will get more feedback if you create this in Open Discussions, and just declare this for closed.

Ohhh- just see that this is a commercial product.

I did put it in open discussions. However I didn't get any feedback yet (http://www.redmine.org/boards/1/topics/24077). How can I declare this topic closed? I should put [CLOSED] to the topic title?

What I do not understand, is have you made this or are you about to?

No. I didn't start the development. I'd start if this feature interests people.

Ohhh- just see that this is a commercial product.

Is this a problem? The component is offered for free for open source projects.

Best regards,
Cristian.

This is what easy-redmine actually does with their Advanced Drag and Drop Gannt

Yes, it'll be great to have such features in Redmine's gannt out of the box. But it's just a dream in real world.
