Create Gantt Chart in Omniscope - Visualise Projects, Tasks, Duration

Modified on Fri, 20 Oct 2023 at 10:47 AM

A Gantt chart is a visualisation that helps in planning, scheduling, and tracking various tasks or activities over a specific period. It displays tasks as horizontal bars along a timeline, making it easy to visualise the start and end dates of each task. 

Each bar corresponds to a task or event, with the position and length of the bar reflecting the start, end, and duration of the task.

The Omniscope Gantt chart requires a dataset containing Start and End Date fields, along with the owner and task. However, these last two elements can be interchanged, as illustrated in the screenshot below, to offer an alternative perspective on the events.

Timeline settings will need these two fields (for indicating start/finish), often automatically selecting them by default. 'Aggregate' is an option that links the first and last bars, forming a continuous bar that signifies the start and finish of the engagement, eliminating pauses in between.

Further config options:

Within the Event progress options, you can display the percentage of task completion (requires a number between 0 and 1). 

The Task setting also includes a Sort field, which allows you to establish a custom order of tasks in the chart using a specific measure field from the dataset.

Here is a brief video explaining the configuration steps and options.

It is also possible to create a custom order of the tasks manually - see the Data tab in settings, then re-order the field's values under the 3-dot Field settings. This order will affect other visualisations in the report e.g. this same order will appear in the Bar view.
