GANTT Chart View in Resource Allocation Window
The Gantt View is a tool for visualizing the elements of a project, package, or diagram as well as the resources assigned to them. The tool will enable a traditional or agile project manager to ensure that a project’s resources are allocated to repository content and that high-value outcomes are achieved directly from the repository.
Where Can I Find the Project Gantt Chart?
Users can access the Project Gantt Chart through the following options :
- Ribbon: Design > Package > Gantt View
- Ribbon: Design > Diagram > Views > Gantt View
- Diagram Context Menu: Switch View | Switch to Gantt View
- Browser window Package context Menu | Open Package in | Gantt View
