January 25, 2016

VirtoSoftware just updated its SharePoint Gantt Chart web part – a practical and highly customizable project planning solution designed for displaying and managing SharePoint tasks in a timeline view that makes it easy and convenient to track the work progress.

We added some great new features and now you can working easily on a comprehensive project plan without setting dates and scheduling of dozens depending tasks manually.

You can schedule tasks in Virto SharePoint Gantt web part automatically in dependence on relations between tasks. For example, I created two tasks and connected them by arrow to make the following dependency: the second task starts after the first task’s end date. Now I`ll move the first task to a new date and change the SharePoint Gantt schedule. With the new auto scheduling feature Virto SharePoint Chart web part updates second task without any alteration in task duration and changes its start date according to the end date of the first task.  If I move the first task end date to Friday, the successor task start date will be Monday.

Another feature is the ability to automatically set a start date of depending task after the end date of the predecessor task, even if the depending task started before the predecessor. For example, I `ll make the task “2” the predecessor of the task “1”. After I set the dependency, the start date of the predecessor changes according to end date of the task “1”.

The parent task logic was also improved. Start and end dates (duration) of summary task are calculated according to start and end dates of it’s children.
