New features are on the way: Part 1Getting too comfortable with Ganttic? Don't worry, we have a few bigger and a handful of smaller changes coming up to make your life a bit more interesting. All kidding aside, Ganttic has an update coming, that's going to make planning resources a lot easier. The essence of the change is that planning a task is going to be more flexible to meet your needs.
Our task dialog (the dialog that pops up when you click on a task) is going to get a total makeover, from inside and out. With the update, Ganttic will allow you to plan tasks' time in two new ways and you can plan your tasks with 15-minute accuracy if necessary.

Let us introduce to you your seven new resource planning friends:
So this little racing flag is going to let you plan a task by setting start and end date, the same way as you are doing it now. And Ganttic will calculate the Busy time or Utilization percentage according to which one you have chosen to set.
The first game changer is this clock. With it, you can plan a task by setting the date when the task should start (or when it should end), the duration of the task, and also the Utilization percentage or Busy time, and Ganttic will calculate the rest accordingly.
The little hammer is also indisputably a nifty little fella. With it you will have an option to plan a task by setting its start or end date, Busy time, Utilization percentage, and leaving the rest for Ganttic to calculate.
What about those little arrows? Those will let you switch whether you want to set start or end date, Busy time or Utilization percentage.
And the rest of your new friends? They will help you with the task timing. The first one will allow you to plan a task from date to date. The second one will allow you to plan a task with hourly precision and the last one with 15-minute accuracy.
There are some other smaller changes to Ganttic that we will reveal in the next blog post, so stay tuned!
The update will be live next week. Let us know what you think! Leave your thoughts and questions at comment section below.
