gant bar color



I am desperately looking how I can change the color of a gantt bar.

Right clicking on it .. only shows me "edit" option .. but not "color" option.

conditional formating : If I select to apply a color to the whole line .. then it allows me to indicate also the gantt bar color .. . If I select eg red .. it doesn't change anything .. only the whole line background is getting colored and not just the gantt bar.




  • Hello Dianne,


    It's possible that you're trying to change the Gantt bar color of a parent row, which by default is gray. Parent row Gantt bar colors can't be changed at this time but I'll add your vote for this to our enhancement request list for further consideration.


    If that isn't the case, please upload a full-screen screenshot with your cursor over the Gantt bar you're trying to change.
