Team, I know in Project/program management “Gantt Chart” is often thought as the best tool to show and manage dependencies, but was curious if there are any other methods that are more useful. Most of our projects are related to Digital and Business transformation.

I have seen some examples of network diagram, dependency maps etc. Wanted to see if some one has used it effectively and share best practices?

Following, as I am interested in this concept as well.

Wild-a** suggestion (which doesn’t allow you to manage dependencies, but neither does a Gantt Chart) -

  • Airtable now supports Vega-Lite.
  • Vega-lite provides Sankey charts (I use them in Kibana a bunch).


Hi @Bill_French , where did you find the info in that screenhot? The current vega-lite implementation doesn't seem to include a Sankey diagram in it's examples dataset

Hi @nedcr can you now confirm that it offers a Sankey Diagram?

@Bill_French can you confirm that you are able to use the Sankey diagrams from VegaLite in AirTable?

Happy to share some sample visuals?

Yes. As the link above demonstrates, vega lite can render a sankey visual. Doing it in Airtable probably requires some effort, but if the extension supports vega lite, then by definition, it is possible.
No one thought a hill chart was possible either.
