  • 5. Can I change the start/due date on my card in Gantt chart?

    When a card has neither start nor due date, it is different from other cards on Gantt chart in two ways: firstly, it is grayed out on the left; secondly, there is no track bar for this card on the right. 

    There're 2 options to set new or update existing dates:

    1) To click on the card in Gantt chart view to open the right panel and set new start/due dates manually in the Card Details section.

    2) To set or adjust the start/due date on your card using a track bar. Hover the mouse over the area on the Gantt Chart corresponding to a card, find the date on the timeline you want to be the start date of your card, press the left button of your mouse and lead a cursor to the end date and release the button.

    To adjust dates simply click on the left/right edge of the track bar representing the time frame for a particular task and drag it to a particular date. Dates will change automatically. If you have pushed them to your Google Calendar, changes will be displayed there as well.

  • 8. How to use Dependencies on Gantt Chart?

    Dependencies show the relationship between cards on board. They indicate when a card should begin or end in relation to other cards.

    To add predecessor, Open Card Details, go to Dependencies section, and select a card. 

    Some cards in the drop-down list are greyed out. If it happens, that card cannot be chosen, as it would create a circular dependency, i.e. cards would either directly or indirectly depend on each other.

    To remove predecessor hover your mouse over it and click Remove.


    Cards are linked through a simple Finish-To-Start Dependency, which means that the first card must be finished before the second card can start. 

    If this logic is violated, a blue arrow connecting the bars turns red, prompting you to adjust the dates.

    Dependencies make connections between tasks more visual and your projects – more manageable.
