Chapter 7. Viewing Your Schedule > Working with the Gantt Chart View

Working with the Gantt Chart View

The previous chapters in this book discuss creating projects and establishing a task list. Most of these discussions are centered around the Gantt Chart view—probably the most widely used view in Microsoft Project. This chapter is devoted to expanding your knowledge of the Gantt Chart view (and several other views) to effectively work with your project schedule. You'll find a number of cross-references in this chapter pointing you to other sections of the book, which provide more detailed information on scheduling and customizing the views.

One of the reasons the Gantt Chart view is so widely used is the array of information readily available in this view. The Gantt Chart is divided into two components: the task table and the timescale. The task table is similar to a spreadsheet. It displays your task data in columns and rows. The default table is the Entry table, although other tables are available for you to view.
