Gantt Chart Improvement

Added by Rafael Maria Raschkowski about 14 years ago

Hello dear people,
during our work with redmine, we realised some points, which would be important for us, to make more professional use of Redmine. I've done a Mindmap to show them:

I completely agree, adding Dependencies would make the Gantt-Chart really useful - as a Developer I would be able to see where to start (if modelled correctly in the Tickets).

I'd say as a start it might be enough to check for Ticket A blocks B and interpret this as an End-Begin dependency, for this there would be (in a first step) no need for modifying the datamodel and one could allredy see the dependencies - more advances features may be added later ;)

Cheers, Arndt

Being able to establish the critical path and then to also display it on the Gantt chart would be really helpful for project management!

As it is now, the Gantt chart is nothing more than a bit of eye-candy. The inability to determine the critical path and easily visualize sequence and relations severely limits it use as a planning tool.
