We added the Project Chart feature over a year ago and since then it hasn’t received any love. This month we decided to revisit this feature, gut what we did before and start again.
The result is a more useful, better looking and printable chart.
We took all feedback into consideration and we love how it turned out.

The big change here has been the underlying technology used to build the chart. The old chart was built in Flash. This was fine at the time but  the rise of Apple and their lack of love for Flash meant that it didn’t work on iPads or iPhones. This also caused issues when it came to trying to print the chart for meetings.

We decided this time we would scrap Flash and completely rewrite it. This means that the new project chart is fully supported on all iOS devices and it also has the ability to generate a great printable view.

As well as updating the look of the chart we have also added a few more goodies to it. You now have the option to filter milestones on the chart as some charts where becoming very cluttered with the amount of milestones used in each project.

We then added the ability to filter the chart by company. This allows you to just display one company at a time so you can get a better idea of where a specific company’s project’s start, end, and overlap.

The last feature is the tool tips on the chart. If you place your mouse over a milestone or over a project bar it will display extra information about each, such as who is responsible, due dates and the completion status.

We hope you find this update to the chart really useful, and as always if you have any feedback on this please let us know.
