Possible gannt chart features

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

I've noticed that in order to move through the timeline of the gannt chart you have to use the lower scroll bar.  It would be nice if you could hold left, right or middle click within the gannt chart and drag left or right.  Easier and faster than having to use the lower scroll bar.  Whenever switching to the gannt the timeline is showing the future past my latest finish date.  I have to scroll back to today every time.

Also, it would be nice to see a..I believe it is called a tool tip... with the start and finish date when you hover over a bar in the gannt chart.

Just a few things I appreciated in other program management applications.




  • Hi JustinB,

    When you have a moment, please submit a product enhancement request for these features using the form under Quick links on the right of the community site. This goes straight to our Product team for review.

    Although we don't have a feature that generates a tooltip for the start and end date when hovering over a Gantt bar, you can change the Gantt display label to display either the start date or end date with the steps in the help center: https://help.smartsheet.com/articles/673816-adjusting-the-gantt-chart-timeline
