Projects / Project plan

Project plan

The project plan is represented as a Gantt Chart shown on the project page. It consists of tasks of different types which are placed in a certain order and have assigned executors and deadlines.

On the left, you can see the list of all the tasks. On the right, each task is represented by a colored bar. The color depends on the task's type and deadline. When the task is completed, the color changes to a darker shade.


Manage project plan

Preparing the project plan and working with it during the projects consists of the following steps:

  1. Add tasks to the chart, define their types.
  2. Link the plan's tasks to set up the sequence of execution.
  3. Save the plan as Draft.
  4. If you are using the plan of a template project, check the deadlines and assigned executors of the tasks, since they are copied from the template. Make changes if necessary.
  5. Publish the project plan. The assignments of Task and Milestone types will be assigned to users.
  6. Monitor the project plan to check the progress.
  7. Add new tasks to the plan. You can create new versions of the plan and compare them with the old ones.

Project plan status

The following statuses are available for a project plan:

  • Draft. A new or edited version of the plan that has been saved but hasn't been published. There can be several drafts of a plan at the same time;
  • Current. The published version of the plan. Only one version can be current;
  • Archived. The current version is archived when another version is published.

These are default statuses. The administrator can edit them or add new ones.

The statuses of all the versions of the plan are displayed on the projec page, in the About the Project widget. It shows:

  • The current plan;
  • All the drafts;
  • Archived plans. Note that this field shows all of the versions that have ever been created for the project.
