Learn how to use Gantt Charts to plan and schedule complex projects successfully.

Have you ever had to plan a complex project?

If so, you'll know just how tricky it can be juggling all the different tasks and deadlines involved.

It can be particularly challenging when you have a number of tasks that are dependent on each other or that must be completed in a certain order.

Gantt charts are a useful way of presenting this information visually, so that you know what tasks need to be completed, when, and in what order.

They can also help you work out practical aspects of a project, such as the minimum time it should take to complete a task, and which tasks need to be finished before others can start.

    Hi pazza,
    Excel doesn't have any built-in Gantt chart templates that I know of however people do use bar charts to create them.

    I googled 'Gantt Chart Excel' and found many examples for different versions of the software. See if you can find anything that helps and then get back to me.
