You have two options when making a Gantt chart in MindView:
In this example, we will do the latter:
Start by brainstorming your project plan in the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) or the Mind Map view. Easily enter Deliverables and Work Packages. You can easily re-organize data with drag-and-drop. This is more efficient than the traditional white board or sticky note process. Once you have created the WBS simply swap the data to the Gantt chart view.
Once you have converted to a Gantt chart, your tasks will be visible in the outline to the left of the Gantt chart.
Resources can be entered into the Gantt chart software manually or imported from a saved resource pool. Resources can also be defined as work and material with costs associated with each item.
Start by finetuning your task information with duration, constraints, milestones etc. You can easily rearrange tasks and add tasks in the outline or drag-and-drop elements in the actual Gantt chart.
Consider your workflow and resources to insert dependencies. Use simple drag and drop within the Gantt chart to create dependencies. Use the Project Reports to check for overallocation of resources. You can use Effort Driven tasks too.
Your Critical Path will identify tasks that must be finished on-time to stay on track with your project schedule.
MindView is perfect for managing information from start to finish. Developing dependencies, constraints and milestones helps keep your projects on time and on budget and thus satisfy all stakeholders.
Present your Gantt chart to any stakeholder with a variety of layouts. Swap between the Gantt chart, project timeline, WBS or Project report. Synchronize with Microsoft Project, export to Word or distribute your tasks to resources. MindView has it all included!
After you have completed your project schedule then the following up process begins. This project management software lets you overview project status by utilizing baselines – as many as you like. Project reports are available for costs updating and progress reporting. Getting a project update hasn’t been easier.
