A Gantt chart is a visual view of tasks scheduled over time. Invented by Henry Gantt, an American mechanical engineer, it's a type of bar chart that shows the start and finish dates of several elements of a project that include: what the project tasks are, who is working on each task, how long each task will take, and how tasks group together, overlap, and link with each other.

Gantt charts are usually used for:

  • Project management to track tasks and milestones
  • Marketing planning to ensure deadlines are met
  • Product roadmaps to manage deadlines and deliverables.

The Gantt chart template is the perfect tool to show all elements of a complex project in a balanced, easy to read graphic.

Pro Tips for creating a Gantt Chart

Make your Gantt chart appealing by:

Keeping it simple.

Project management is inherently complex, so keep your chart simple by using a color scheme with cool colors like blues or greens.

Using a sans serif font.

Again, limit the complexity of your Gantt chart by using basic, easily readable fonts like Arial or Calibri. You can use free Google fonts which come with every account.

Adding icons and arrows to your chart.
