What is a Gantt chart?
A Gantt chart is used for project management to visualize all tasks from the beginning of a project to its completion. A Gantt chart lays out individual tasks and their dependencies, ownership, duration, and the expected duration of the project as a whole. With each task mapped out and assigned, your team can easily meet deadlines and ensure accountability.
How to make a Gantt chart
Gather the information needed for your project
Compile a list of project timeline information, stakeholders, tasks, and resources to ensure that your Gantt chart is as thorough as possible.
Select a Gantt chart template or start from scratch
Create a Gantt chart by selecting a template from our template gallery or by starting with a blank canvas.
Customize a template to fit your project needs
Input your project milestones and deadlines, and adjust each bar to visually correspond with the expected duration for each.
Collaborate and improve your Gantt chart
Share the most up-to-date version of your Gantt chart with stakeholders to analyze potential pain points, make updates, and recognize progress as your projects move forward.
Print, share, or present
Once your Gantt chart is ready, you can share it with your team via email, link, Slack, or Join ID. Or if you’d prefer a hard copy, print the chart. You can also use Presentation Mode to create presentation slides right in Lucidchart.
