Drag And Drop Scheduling


Introduction

Creating a task is the next step of using Ganttic after you've set up your resources. Tasks are essentially work or duty that needs to be done by your resources. Simply drag your cursor across the Gantt chart area to create a Task. You could also use Tasks as any type of holiday to block out a period of time so that work Tasks can't be assigned to resources on holiday. Planning resources can be problematic under unpredictable circumstances. Even after decisions are made, plans could change. Instead of spending time merging and unmerging spreadsheets’ cells, use Ganttic's Drag-and-Drop function for a quick and easy way of rescheduling and rearranging Tasks and resources. Adapt to any circumstance without a hassle.

Must-know about this feature

You can add tasks by dragging and dropping and using the '+' next to the Resource title. If you want to assign a Task to multiple resources, click on '+' next to the resources while the Task dialog is open. If you need to schedule many Tasks at once, you can also use the import feature.
