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?

+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!!

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

The timeline block is far less useful without an option to group entries together

what about timeline block?

Timeline block

The timeline block is part of Airtable Blocks, a Pro plan feature. Blocks let you extend the functionality of your bases: you can use blocks to bring new information into Airtable, visualize and su...

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?

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.

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!!

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

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

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.

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:

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.

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

++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.

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!
