Smartsheet enables all project managers to stay on track - from simple, straight-forward Gantt chart timelines to complex automated schedules and resource tracking, Smartsheet can help. Several articles in our help center will help walk you through project management in Smartsheet:
Working with Gantt charts
A Gantt chart is a visual timeline that showing when tasks take place. Simply enter start and end dates for your tasks to display them in your Gantt chart.
TIP: If you've already set up a task list with start and end dates, you can add a Gantt chart to the existing sheet.
Enabling Dependencies & Using Predecessors Enabling dependencies is completely optional. Doing so will add automation to your sheet and allow you to link tasks together using the Predecessors column.
Project Sheet Columns: Start Date, End Date, Duration, % Complete and Predecessors After enabling dependencies, automation occurs among your project sheet columns so they all work together to schedule tasks.
Parent Rollup Functionality
After enabling dependencies, parent rows will automatically reflect a summary of the sub-tasks indented underneath.
Defining Non-working & Holidays on Project Sheets
After enabling dependencies, prevent tasks being scheduled on days that your team doesn't work.
After enabling dependencies, create milestones in the project schedule to designate event or deadline dates.
Resource Management (Team/Enterprise Only)
After enabling dependencies, users on Team/Enterprise plans can enable Resource Management to track and review how their Smartsheet team members ("resources") are allocated across projects.
