Timelines View (Gantt Chart)

Martin Večeřa

The Timelines view (or so called Gantt Chart) is an exceptionally powerful type of view because it allows us to see 7 various attributes of every single record/row/item.

Timelines View is typically used to display:

  • tasks,
  • projects,
  • orders,
  • resource utilization (e.g. hotel room bookings),
  • planned events etc.

There are even ways to display more than 7 attributes as noted below. What we can see at once and how we can update the values in Lumeer?

Item description (e.g. task name) – can be updated in a detail dialog opened by a double-click.

item edit

Start date – can be updated by a mouse drag and drop.

End date – can be updated by a mouse drag and drop.

Progress – can be updated by a mouse drag and drop.

Color (e.g. task state) – can be changed automatically upon reaching 100% progress or in the detail dialog. Timelines view can work with selection, checkboxes, colors, and progress attributes.

Hierarchy or dependencies between items, displayed as links – can be updated by mouse dragging.

Categories or swimlanes – in theory there can be an unlimited number of categories and sub-categories can be changed by dragging items between categories. Btw. Timelines view can add any number of category attributes.
