Adding Task Name to Right Side of Bars

I have an existing sheet that used from a template. It was imported from Project. There are currently no task names beside the bars in the Gantt chart. Is there a way to add the task name to show up to the right of the bars in the Gantt view?

    Go to the Project Settings for the sheet, Timeline Display section, and select "Display Label for" dropdown for the column you want to see.


    If you want to see more than one, create a new column to concatenate the columns together.



  • This worked for me. Thank you Craig.

  • Is it possible to add the name of the resource assigned to the task in the gantt view? And how about the % complete?

  • Hello, 

    Is there a way to add the task name to the left side of the bar instead of the right on the gantt?
