Allow editors and viewers to change gantt timescale when printing to PDF
Request: Allow users with editor or viewer access to change the timescale when printing a gantt view to a PDF, and for that setting to be persistent for that user. Background and our use case: I was not aware, but apparently editors cannot change timescale of the gantt when printing to PDF. They can change the display…
Change "end date" based on status changes
When an end date is used in a dependency setting, you can't use automation or formulas to change it. However, this is when it is critical (pun fully intended)! When someone marks an item as Completed status, it would be helpful if the sheet could update the End Date column to the date it marked completed. For dependencies…
Gantt bar color in Report not matching color in Sheet
I have a Report that references timelines in a Sheet, and the colors do not match between the two. Why is this and how do I fix it? At first it looked like the report bar colors were importing the colors of children tasks, but even after updating those it won't adjust on the report.
How do you set up a project timeline to work around set meeting dates?
I am putting together a sheet / gantt chart for a project. My project needs to be approved by several committees as it progresses through various stages. These committees have fixed meeting dates that are scheduled out a year in advance and only happen once per month. Is there a way to program the currently scheduled…
Getting a group of predecessors to fill in sections
I have the same set of subtasks in my project that repeat over and over. I have predecessors set up for the flow and I want to copy and paste it down the sheet and have the associated rows update to the new numbers. Everything I try just copies and pastes the original set of row numbers. Updating every row manually is…
Lock A Specific View (so users can't switch to another view)
We'd like the ability to restrict a view in a report or in a sheet so that a user can ONLY view a sheet or report in a specific view (like Card View, Grid View, etc.) Example: Our team discovered Card View is the safest way to allow multiple users to have Edit access to a sheet or report while lowering the chances of them…
adjusting the way baseline columns generate
Hi, I would like to make it so if I turn on baselines, I can use currently existing columns for dates and variance, rather then having to generate new ones. The reason for this is so I can use those columns in pre-made reports that are consistent across all projects built from a template, rather than having to manually…
Gantt colors and Dashboards - is there an easier way for my issue?
The issue I'm having is that I'm creating a milestone dashboard with gantt view, but need to be able to change the colors of the gantt chart, which can only be done in the grid sheet. Smartsheets does not allow for changing the gantt colors of lines that are considered headers, subheaders, etc. Only task lines. So now I'm…
Gantt Chart Alignment
I created a smartsheet using the Gantt chart template. For some reason the Gantt chart lines are slightly larger than the task lines. So when you're looking at a task and look right to see the gantt chart, it does not align with the proper task (Screenshot attached). This seems like Gantt 101 - The line has to match up…
