Update [12/8/2009]: due to the recent events at EndUserSharePoint.com, we are postponing the live online workshop. The Gantt workshop is now scheduled on Thursday, December 17 at 1 pm EST.
I have updated the Gantt demos on my SharePoint site. All the featured customizations will be detailed in Thursday’s live online workshop. Each participant will get a sandbox and the parts needed to build the views below.
This demo is based on the OOTB Gantt view, to which I have added some customizations (cf. my previous post):
– month time scale
– variable scale, adjusted via a slider. Three ways to adjust the scale: move the handle / click on the slider bar / use the arrows on your keyboard.
– overdue tasks in red
– [new] on the fly filtering of tasks: tasks will be filtered based on the text you enter in the input field (placed above the task titles).
– [new] tooltip displaying task title, start and end dates: hover over a blue bar to view it.
The second demo shows a method to add color coding to the OOTB Gantt view. The color is based on the level of priority. More details here.
The third demo offers a completely different approach: the Gantt view is built from scratch, in a standard SharePoint list view. This provides more flexibility (color coding, annotations, tooltip, etc.), and benefits from the OOTB list features (like grouping).
See this post for more details.

Thank you for sharing with us these amazing Gantt charts. Is it possible to receive the code for the first demo, “GanttTimeScale”?
The code is made available to the participants of the Gantt online workshop, or you can register for a one-on-one session. Fell free to contact me directly for details.
