There are many products on the market for project planning, what to use?
The standard gant in Bitrix24 - is from a box, rather simple in use, but there is no functionality of export as diagrams for demonstration to clients. And the most important minus - there get all active tasks on the project, even service, and they are sometimes not needed there.
Ganttpro (ganttpro.com) is an online service, which we are currently implementing for visual scheduling of project stages in the form of Gantt. Very simple and clear interface, it is possible to create only the necessary stages and tasks, it is possible to create several projects, work with diagrams to several people with different rights (some editing, others watching), there is an export in the form of Gantt in png and pdf formats. Minus, perhaps, only in the payment of the solution.
MSProject - allows not only to create a Gantt chart, but also to keep records of resources, cost of resources, control over the underload and overload of resources (for example, tasks per resource (employee) more than 40 hours a week), to generate reports. The solution is interesting, but often the functionality is redundant and only partially used. It is possible to export to pdf.
We have found 7 more tools for Gantt - we will tell you about them in the next articles.
