About the Gantt Chart template

What is a Gantt chart?

A Gantt chart is a powerful and much-used graphical representation. The horizontal bar chart visually represents the progression of a project plan over time. Most Gantt charts show you the status of each step in the project, as well as the stakeholders. 

Though Gantt charts vary by organization and team, there are typically a few key components:

  1. First, the task list runs vertically down the left-hand side of the chart. It describes project work and is often organized into groups and subgroups. 

  2. Second, the timeline runs horizontally across the top of the chart and portrays the progression of the project. 

  3. Third, the horizontal bars on the right-hand side of the chart represent progress toward a given goal. Gantt charts also show milestones, dependencies, and stakeholders.

When to use a Gantt chart

Use Gantt charts whenever you need to plan and schedule projects for your team, assign responsibilities, and view how the tasks are proceeding over time. The charts are also great tools for collaboration, as they are easily shareable among team members and stakeholders.

The benefit of Gantt charts is that they allow you and your team to quickly see a project’s tasks, how long they will take, and who is working on each one. They also show you how tasks interrelate and fit together.

Create your own Gantt chart

Miro’s whiteboard tool is the perfect canvas to create and share your Gantt chart. You can get started right away by selecting the Miro Gantt Chart template, and easily tailor it to your specific project and timeline. To set up a Gantt chart:

Step 1: Start with a list of tasks on the left and a timeline at the top. Each task is represented by a bar; the position and length of the bar reflects the start and end dates and duration of each activity. 

Step 2: Invite any of your team members to collaborate on your Gantt chart, and they’ll be able to view any changes such as tasks completed or new processes added in real time. You can upload any relevant files (Office, Google Docs, PDF, JPG, PNG) to keep everything in one place. You can also use the sticky notes and comments feature to explain and discuss tasks when team members need clarification.
