Gantt view/Gantt chart capability


#95

+1 to Gantt and dependencies please


#96

+1 for Gantt feature request!!

Great News!


#97

+1 for Gantt. I’ve been implementing Airtable in a number of companies, but can’t fully use for product development due to this massive gap. Please prioritize!!


#98

+1 for Gantt (promoted into Views, alongside Kanban, Calender, List etc.).


#99

+1 for Gantt block
The timeline block is far less useful without an option to group entries together


#100

what about timeline block?


#101

Timeline block is a step in the right direction but I really need to have a view that i can share with clients without them needing to login, as I can with normal views. I believe it is not possible to share the timeline block in this way, it it?


#102

So if it became possible to:

  1. have a column in your table reference another row
  2. have another column in your table, be able to reference a specific column from the referenced row

Then you would be able to accomplish this like so with the columns (task, duration, automatic start date, automatic finish date) and a work day of 5 hours.

However, as point 2 is not possible, and lookup is not possible for items in the same table, and as formulas don’t support such referencing, then this method is not possible.


#103

Giving Airtable the benefit of the doubt that they’re actively working on this, I have a few sub-feature requests for this feature.

  • Milestones: I have dates in my table that show the progression of the project. For example, quote date, production date, ship date, date invoiced. Instead of a simple date beginning and date end, milestones should be added to show more detailed project progress against the expected/estimated timeline.
  • SIngle-select “Order”: This is almost another feature request entirely, but being able to stipulate “order” in a single-select field would be very helpful. For example, it could show that the status of “quote sent” would come before “invoice sent” in a project timeline. This would help for any application, not just a gantt view.
  • Another reason why the gantt block should be a view is because of its lack of manipulatability. I should be able to sort, filter, and share the view in the same way I would a Kanban or gallery. Very frustrating that this is treated like a second-class citizen in the Airtable society.

Airtable, please fix this! It’s the only thing impeding the adoption of your product by many organizations.

It’s been a few months. I hope it’s soon!!


#105

+1 for Gantt functionality - critical :sunglasses:


#106

+1 for Gantt functionality - most frustrating thing about the platform now.


#107

+3 (we are a team of three : ) for GANTT functionality, it would be a dramatic improvement to our job. Thanks!


#108

+1 for Gantt functionality. Currently evaluating other platforms because of the lack of gantt functionality.


#109

I moved from SmartSheet because Airtable has way more potential. Gantt view/chart is desperately needed. If nothing else, even “child” rows for grouping data.


#110

Hoping to hack Calendar and Timeline to get some sort of usable Gantt functionality. The inability to visually sort on the Timeline block is such a bummer. :frowning:


#111

Normal gantt (Smartsheet, MS Project, etc) is 110% necessary to use as a scheduling tool (specifically construction). Timeline block does not even remotely cut it for scheduling. Please, not as a block, ASAP.


#112

Just started to looking at Airtable and really surprised it doesn’t have this feature.


#113

++1 The lack of Gantt is a non-starter for me/us at the moment. There must be some very fundamental structural details of the architecture that prevent adding this easily, or it would certainly already be there. I’m a big fan of Agile and LEAN philosophies and I don’t like Gantt charts at all because I think that they create false promises for many development projects or for roadmaps within organizations (like higher ed) where priorities are in constant flux, but I do still need to create them when their absence is taken as a sign of “no plan” for certain types of decision makers.


#114

+1. We love Airtable for some things, but lacking Gantt and some of the subfeatures listed here makes is less suitable for project management. I’d prefer to stick with one tool!
