Features > Customization > Custom Views
A big part of the Ganttic planning experience is the possibility to create an almost endless amount of different views. Views of your projects; views where tasks are colored by projects; views where tasks are colored by their own colors; views where resources are grouped by different labels etc. As an administrator, you can choose whether the view you created will be displayed to everyone on your team or just you. Views created by simple users are private by default.
And Carl, the view of you always petting the cat is not private. So please, set the cat free, would you?
While managing your resources, viewing can come in handy when you need to inspect schedules and plans made. Customize and save views by combining resource grouping, tasks coloring, filtering and time period settings. This allows you and your team to view projects and schedules for different uses at any time. Save views lets you return to a customized environment when the need arises.
By creating customized views you can get an overview of your projects, resources, tasks etc by custom criteria. Switching between different custom views/tabs helps you to plan faster while avoiding setting different parameters for the same view all over again.
To create a new view:
- Click 'NEW' button and select 'ADD VIEW'
- A new tab opens. Rename it and hit 'Enter' upon completion
- Set desired parameters (visible time period, grouping, filter etc) and click 'Save view' upon completion
- To view the list of saved custom views click on the '+' sign beside the title of the current view
- Views are listed on the left column.
Administrators can choose in Ganttic planner whether they want to save a view as a public view or private view, and all views created by regular users are by default private.
