Like the calendar view but if you introduce Gantt you could take Smartsheet out of the market :slightly_smiling_face: until then they have an edge over you!!!

As an interim to full Gantt view could you show tasks with a start and end date as a span e.g. multi days rather than start date only?

As a new Airtable convert- I’m bummed that I’m stuck in Smartsheets for now because of the lack of Gantt view- though I just learned about Reports and Sights in Smartsheets which are cool- but Airtable is SOOOOO much more user friendly and nice to look at. I’d love Gantt view in Airtable!

Adding gantt functionality in anyway would take airtable to the next level (i.e. convert SmartSheet’s market share) for several reasons.

For Airtable: People who use gantt’s are project and program managers.

Add the Gantt that attracts project and program managers and get exponential sales opportunities with zero time invested for adding leads in a pipeline. They will do your selling.

  • Project Managers typically lead a project which includes a team of people. They have heavy influence on team members and stakeholders, as well as budget to get the project done. This means, if they like a certain tool (e.g. Airtable, Smartsheet, Maven, BaseCamp, etc.), especially if it has a Gantt, they purchase the subscriptions (10-30 people).

  • Program Managers organize and equip a “project of projects” (over simplified), and if they have a tool that can help them predict and coordinate timing, budgets, and quality between project teams (Gantt is a must for this), they will make the purchasing decision for all the projects (30-100 people).

About me: I have over 10 years of program management experience trained at the number 1 school in the nation for this. I’ve applied it from government contracting to starting 2 for-profit and a non-profit successfully on time and on budget for stakeholders (investors and partners). The scopes of our projects reached beyond $100M. I speak with authority on the ROI opportunities this holds for Airtable and for their client’s success. Please feel free to reach out for any questions or followup. M

I absolutely love AirTable and am using it for practically every need I have. Unfortunately, I want to create a Gantt chart so I can easily stay on track of progress to meet my quarterly goals

I just started using Airtable and I was like > “Wow! Its Google Sheets meets Trello”. And to add to my fellow airtable chairpersons a Gantt view would be the best thing for me since sliced bread :bread:

This would be a great feature for us as well!

It would sure be great to have a gannt view BUT, how do you plan to create nesting tasks ? (multi-level hierarchy of tasks) There first needs to have nesting rows of information.

Good point @Mustafa_Kaplan https://www.teamgantt.com is (yet) another tool that covers both gantt views and nesting pretty well.

That being said, I’m coming up on cases where I need to link to other records in the same table…

This is a feature that is in high demand by my team and we would love to have the option in Airtable to view projects in a Gant chart.
