Interacting with Gantt Items Via the Title List View 

You can also add a new task directly into a tasklist on the Gantt chart level by clicking to the right of any tasklist title (which will highlight the title line) on the list view, then select the "Add Task" button which will populate next to the fit to screen button. This will then allow to add a new task to the tasklist which is currently selected.

Interacting with Gantt charts

You can now edit the schedule of your projects by interacting with Gantt charts. To interact with the Gantt chart, select Turn Edit Mode On, make the desired changes by dragging the milestone and task bars or new dependencies with your cursor, and click Save Changes.

When editing Gantt charts, click and drag the entire bar to change the start and due date of a milestone, tasklist, or task but maintain the duration of these items. Or click and drag the edges of the bar to change the duration of the milestone, tasklist, or task and either the start or due date.

To create new dependencies, hover your cursor over the edge of any task or milestone bar until a circle appears, click the circle and drag the dependency line to the circle associated with the dependent task or milestone bar. To shift dependent tasks and milestones, check the box to Cascade Changes before editing.

Select Cancel Changes to undo any changes made to the Gantt chart.


Skip Non Working Days

When Skip Non Working Days is selected while editing the Gantt chart, task durations will not include days that are designed non working days in Company Setup.  In the example below, a task which spans across the non-working weekend will not include Saturday and Sunday in its total number of days. Also, tasks which are moved onto a non-working day will be automatically moved onto days when the company is considered open for business.
Note: Only incomplete tasks and milestones can be edited from within the Gantt chart.
