Since Gantt view is mainly used for simple tasks management, we have added a necessary web part property – ability to show the Outline Number (WBS). When the property is activated, the Outline Number (WBS) is shown right next to the task name. Since the WBS column does not exist in the SharePoint lists, we have added WBS virtual column to resolve the issue.
