Ghant Chart with quarter headings

I really like the quarterly level ghant chart.  However, when the earliest task begins near the end of the quarter, I have two months of blank ghant.  I thought that I could force it to show only the part of the quarter that has a task by specifying a date range.  But, I still get the blank part of the quarter.   Is there any way to start the ghant chart with the earliest task and not show the blank part of the quarter?

    Hi Jerry,

    At this time, because the Primary Header is set to be Quarters, we will show the entire quarter and the only way to only show the starting month would be to switch the Primary Header to be Months either by using the magnifying lenses to zoom out or to edit those settings from the Project Settings: https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/765755#timelinedisplay

    Currently this would be an enhancement request. If you'd like to add your vote for this, there is a link on the right side of the page under the Quick Links section. You can click on "Submit Product Enhancement Request". 

    We appreciate your input!

    Thanks Ian!  I suspected this is the case.  I'll cast my vote.  The problem with using months as the primary header is that it makes the Ghant too long.  Thanks again,
