Getting Started with the Gantt Chart

In Workfront, there are two Gantt charts with similar functionality: the Task List Gantt Chart and the Project List Gantt Chart. The Task List Gantt Chart displays information about tasks and is editable at the project level. The Project List Gantt Chart displays information about projects and is not editable.

The Gantt charts in Workfront provide a visual representation of a list of tasks or projects. You can view the Task List Gantt Chart directly from the Task list on a project or from a task report. You can view the Project List Gantt Chart in a project list or a project report.
