Column G is a literal value that represents the task's current status — how much of it is completed. You'll enter these values as percentages and modify them as your project progresses. The new formula is more complex than the first; the logic accounts for the days that are completed and updates those cells accordingly by returning the character C for complete. Now, we need a conditional format for the letter C. Using the instructions supplied earlier, enter a new conditional format rule.
Notice in Figure G that the Preview doesn't show any characters. Figure H shows the new chart. The lighter green represents how much of the task is completed. It's important to note, at this point, that the completed format isn't a true mathematical representation of the completed days. It can't break down the percentage by individual cells. It's a close representation, but it won't always be accurate. You'll want to enter Done values that take this into consideration.
If this isn't accurate enough, you can break down your timeline values into smaller components, such as hours. It would be more complex than what I've shown above, but it's certainly doable.
Another nice addition would be a highlight that denotes the current day within the life of the project not the current date. I chose a vertical red border around the appropriate column, as shown much earlier in Figure A. For instance, if C1 contains the value 5, the red border will surround day 5 in the chart area. By doing so, a quick glance tells you that the first two tasks are falling behind schedule. To implement this second enhancement, enter a literal value in C1.
Now, you're ready to add the format rules that use that value. To include the row above the timeline in the moving today format, select the row above the timeline row, H3: S3, and apply a new conditional rule format:. Click the Border tab and apply a red line to the left, top, and right borders, as shown in Figure I.
Next, select the chart area and the timeline row, H4: S8, and using the same rule, apply a red line to the left and right borders but not the top as before. Finally, click the View tab and uncheck Gridlines in the Show group. I also added a few more visual tweaks, but nothing that changes the technique.
The finished chart is shown in Figure A. Also include a brief description of the task. Make sure to sort these tasks in order, by placing the earliest start date first and the latest start date last.
From the same worksheet that your Excel table is on, click in any blank cell. In the Charts section of the ribbon, drop down the Bar Chart selection menu.
Click on the Add button to bring up Excel's Edit Series window and here you will begin adding Task data to your Gantt chart. First we need to name the data Series we will be entering. Click and place your cursor in the empty field under the title Series name , then click on the column header that reads Start Date in your table.
Staying in the Edit Series window move down to Series value. This is where you will enter your Task start dates. It is easy to do. To the right of the Series values field you will see an icon which looks like a spreadsheet with a red arrow on it. Click on it the one by Series values and Excel will open a smaller Edit Series window. Now simply click the first start date in your task table and drag your mouse down to the last start date. This highlights all of the start dates for your tasks and inputs them into your Gantt chart.
Make sure you have not mistakenly highlighted the header or any extra cells. When finished, click on the small spreadsheet icon again the one with the red arrow which will return you to the previous window called Edit Series. Your Gantt should now look like this:. Here we will add the duration data to your Gantt chart.
In the Edit Series window, click in the empty field under the title Series Name , then click in your Task table again, on the column header that reads Duration. Staying in the Edit Series window move down to Series value and click on spreadsheet icon with a red arrow on it again. Select your Duration data by clicking on the first Duration in your project table and drag your mouse down to the last duration so all durations are now highlighted.
To exit, once again click on the small spreadsheet icon with the red arrow to which will return you to the previous window. Click OK again to build your Gantt chart which should now look something like this:. Right-click on one of the blue bars in the Gantt chart, then click on Select Data again to bring up the Select Data Source window. Select the Edit button to bring up a smaller Axis Label windows.
Again, click on the small spreadsheet icon. Be careful not to include the name of the column itself. When you are done, exit this window by clicking on the small spreadsheet icon again. Your chart should now look something like this:. You have really built a Stacked bar chart. Now we need to format it so it looks like a Gantt chart.
To do that, we must make the blue parts of each task bar transparent so only the orange parts will be visible. These will become the tasks of your Gantt chart. To select all of the tasks bars at once, click on the blue part of any bar in your Gantt chart, then right-click and select Format Data Series , which will bring up the Format Data Series window in Excel.
Don't close the Format Data Series task pane because we're going to use it in the next step. Diese wird in der Liste links des Gantt diagramms definiert und angezeigt. Dadurch werden die zum Abschluss des Projekts erforderlichen Schritte visualisiert und der Zeitaufwand insgesamt — von Anfang bis Ende — geschätzt werden.
Aufgaben in einem Gantt Diagramm können miteinander verknüpft werden. Somit sind Aufgaben innerhalb eines Projekts voneinander abhängig. Start- und Enddatum solchen Einschränkungen unterliegen. Er oder Sie kann die Namen derjenigen hinzufügen, die bestimmte Aufgaben zu erledigen haben. Darüber hinaus kann das Gantt Diagramm bei vielen Software-Anwendungen durch zusätzliche aufgabenbezogene Features erweitert, z.
