The Gantt Chart views in Paymo allows you to schedule, adjust and monitor your projects. In fact, the Gantt Chart is one of the most popular technique used in Project Management for scheduling, monitoring and adjusting projects. The Gantt Chart shows you how activities and tasks are displayed against time and it offers answers to critical questions: “What needs to be done?“, “When does a task start and when it is scheduled to be completed?“, “Which activities overlap and what are the connections between tasks?” or “Who is the person responsible for a task?“.
If you’re not familiar with this technique, you can learn more about Gantt Charts in our Academy.
