Coming here to look for a reason why Gantt charts haven’t been implemented - it’s a strange omission. I’ve been using the Timeline block for this project, and it’s extremely clunky. You want your timeline to be fullscreen and easily accessible, alongside the other views (Kanban, Calendar, List, etc). You don’t wan’t it shoved into a small box off in a side panel, hidden behind a button. While you can expand the timeline to full screen, all the extra friction it takes to find the timeline, and open it up to a usable view has made our timeline completely invisible to the rest of the team. You can’t even link directly to the timeline, which makes it hard to share in Slack. (I’ve had to keep taking updated screenshots to post to the group.) No one on my team has thought to look for the timeline hidden behind the “Blocks” button, (no one even understands what blocks are) no matter how clearly I explain how to access the timeline.

The simplest fix is to simply have the timeline be a first class citizen and promote it into Views, alongside Kanban, Calendar, List, etc. As a user, it’s not at all clear why Kanban is a view but Timeline is a block, or even why there’s an arbitrary distinction. It doesn’t make sense, and it adds unnecessary friction both to my workflow and to the rest of my team’s ability to stay in sync with the schedule.

I love everything else about Airtable but all the friction involved with timelines has made this a “write-only” repository of tasks.

#86

Another vote for Gantt. I don’t really like them but others NEED them.


#87

+1 on Gantt. It’s actually odd that request as been there for two years with no updates from Airtable on this. Does anyone know if it’s on a timeline somewhere?

It will happen eventually. And when it does, I hope the Airtable team takes a solid look at Asana Timeline and Instagantt. They have their strengths and weaknesses, and we’d love to bail on both.

A huge thing for us is the ability to duplicate past projects/views and “push” them forward into the future by X days. This is a huge efficiency for any project planning team.

Even more powerful would be some sort of actualization AI, that is smart enough to reschedule dates in a way that avoids weekends, holidays and other non-working days. That is a shortcoming of all PM apps I’m aware of.
