This is an update to my previous post on Gantt chart web part by Teun. WSS 3.0 version of this web part can be found here. Although MOSS has an out of the box Gantt view for lists as can be seen below the SharePoint Gantt view is bloated compared to the Gantt chart web part. Not only do you get the nice rounded corners for the chart but it will pick up Group by settings of the tasks list and display a black container around the grouped tasks.

Many people have reported problems activating this web part on the site, to resolve this try running the following 2 stsadm commands after you have used the install scripts, these commands will run timer jobs and activate the features on your site collection.

The web part should appear under 'miscellaneous' section in the gallery with the name 'Gantt chart'

stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs

Hi , I would like to ask you if your Gantt Chart web part can handle and display several time slots (bars) for the same title/task on one row ?

Thanks for good explanation.

After getting it to work intially, I am starting to have problems with the Gantt View. Specifically, I get the following message:

"This list cannot be displayed as a Gantt chart because it lacks required fields."

I have found that I can get the view to work if I edit the view and set the Gantt column, Percent Complete, to Optional. However when I set Percent Complete to Percent Complete I get the same error message.

Has anyone seen this? This is driving me nuts. I have tried republishing my InfoPath form in hopes that it would fix the problem but no luck.

Gantt Chart is useful to manage any project. It is actually a graphical representation of time that is consumed for project. We can say that is is good measure of any project with respect to time.
