Exporting Timelines to Create Gantt Charts

When you use Visio diagrams to schedule your projects, you usually start by visualizing the big picture with timelines, and then you create Gantt charts to display project details. Instead of creating a Gantt chart from scratch, you can export your timeline data to the Microsoft Office Project file format with the Export Timeline Data command. You can use this data to create a Visio Gantt chart by using the Import Project Data Wizard, which is available on the Gantt Chart menu in a diagram started using the Gantt Chart template.

Tip

As you revise your Gantt charts, you'll no doubt make changes to the overall schedule as well. Just as you can export timeline data to create Gantt charts, you can also export Gantt chart data to create new timelines by using the Export Project Data Wizard, which you can start by clicking the Export command on the Gantt Chart menu.
