Interactive Gantt Charts for Project Teams

Online and Real-Time Collaborative Project Scheduling

Many software providers have modernized the classic Gantt chart to monitor your team's project schedule through interactive web-based applications. At the turn of the 20th century, Henry Lawrence Gantt, an engineer and business management consultant, pioneered business efficiency through the famous Gantt chart. Since that time, Gantt charts have largely been improved with visibility of team assignments, dynamic linking to detailed task lists, communication and activity streams, and document attachments.​

Project scheduling is an integral part of managing projects and will always require collaborative inputs from the team. Project collaboration tools online enable teams to enter tasks and provide real-time updates wherever you work. Each of these popular project management and collaboration tools give you plenty of flexibility to add Gantt chart functionality in your team's work processes.
