Gantt charting devotees will often note that the only downside to their scheduling and organizational systems has to do with sharing, since many Gantt chart applications make it difficult to collaborate on charts with teammates and coworkers. Team Gantt is different. The web-based application lets people view and edit their coworkers’ Gantt charts with ease.
Team Gantt can make it easier for you to plan your next project and work together with your team. Select a pricing plan based on the number of people you need to collaborate with, and then get started adding tasks and milestones for your latest projects. Each individual task can be dragged and dropped to schedule it for the dates and times you desire, and you can add dependencies to ensure certain tasks get done in a specific order. Once your project is all laid out, you can start assigning individual tasks to the colleagues who are responsible for completing them. The Gantt charts created with Team Gantt can be viewed in countless ways. View your chart in regular calendar mode, or filter it based on the user to see individual charts for each person on your team. You can also set filters to view the tasks currently in progress, or the specific tasks due today.
Collaboration features are present throughout the Team Gantt application. In addition to assigning certain tasks to colleagues, groups can also communicate by commenting on tasks. Users can upload files to selected tasks, which their colleagues can then download at a later date. For people who love Gantt charts, Team Gantt is a cut above the rest.

Thanks for posting about TeamGantt! We are super excited about our product and have some great new features coming soon to make it even more collaborative 🙂
Good information. Lucky me I found your site by chance (stumbleupon).
I have book marked it for later!
In my research the products listed seem to be the best project management oriented apps that facilitate gantt charts. I have a brief exposure to TeamGantt. Liquid Planner was recommended by one of the instructors at Construx. TomsPlanner I have seen some good feedback about as well. My personal preference for this type of software is based in a philosophy that things change often and so tools that are simple and intuitive work much better (unless you have enough resources that someone can be dedicated to maintaining the project in the tool). I would love to hear from anyone who has recent experience with all three tools or has done an in-depth evaluation.
Was nice to learn about the product. Project management tools have become very popular and are getting increasingly affordable, as competition drives pricing down. Never heard about Liquid Planner before, but what I have seen on their website looks promising.
) (Paperback) If you are looking for a sipmle, easy way to teach yourself Project 2010 Step by Step by Carl Chatfield and Timothy Johnson is a good choice. Step by Step (SBS) is a series of textbooks published by Microsoft for learning the applications in the Microsoft Office Suite. The format is hands-on with brief explanations of concepts followed by step by step exercises demonstrating key tasks. Most students can work through the book and its exercises in about 2-3 days of solid study. Disciplined students often find a chapter-a-day to be a reasonably workable pace.You can very effectively skip through the text taking a chapter at a time to learn specific tasks. However, don’t plan on using the SBS series for reference book or quick how-to guide. In Project 2010 SBS you will cover the core skills needed for using Project as a standalone application but helps are sprinkled throughout on using Project Server. SBS assumes the reader is already comfortable with the computer and has some experience with the Microsoft Office 2007 or 2010 Ribbons.Project 2010 SBS is a great book for learning the application and does contain many tips and tricks on the project management methodology. However, SBS is not a book on methodology. The brief appendix Short Course in Project Management is helpful but not a replacement for training and experience in project management. While the SBS series is best suited for individual study it can be used in the classroom in a pinch. I have used SBS series texts for several applications in classes but they are far from the best option. The price point of around $19.79 on Amazon is appealing for classrooms. The new appendix on using SBS in the classroom is unfortunately not at all helpful for an experienced instructor.Disclaimer: As is common practice in book reviews I was given a free copy of Project 2010 SBS for review.
