Visualize project tasks and dependencies with a Gantt chart that adapts and grows with your project.
How Gantt charts help you visualize project management
You can use Gantt charts to streamline workflows by visualizing everyone’s to-dos and deadlines.
Zoom out for a high-level overview of your project and the final deliverables, or zoom into individual tasks to view their status, dates, progress, and dependencies.
Managing projects with Gantt charts lets you:
Make a project plan that you can adapt as your project shifts and grows
Identify tasks and dependent subtasks at a glance
Track your progress toward hitting milestones and deliverables
Prevent bottlenecks before they happen
Create a plan that's easily shared with stakeholders, team members, and external collaborators
How to use Gantt charts in Notion
Create a Notion account.
Add a database in your workspace to visualize your tasks. Start from a new page and select
Add a page to your database for each task, using subpages to add subtasks. Specify dependencies and custom properties like start/due date, status, sprint, and assignee.
Use these properties to visualize your database as a timeline.
Share the timeline with your team so everyone can track progress.
As a project manager, you can use project management tools like Gantt charts to:
Get an overview of complex projects and zoom into specific tasks
Plan and schedule tasks, set finish dates, allocate resources and track progress
Identify potential delays or risks and adjust the project plan
In your Gantt chart, you should include:
All project tasks, milestones, and deliverables
Each task's duration and responsible individuals
Relationships between tasks to see how changes to one will affect another in real time
An additional calendar view to visualize tasks from a high level
You can create a simple Gantt chart from scratch by preparing what you’ll need to visualize:
List project tasks and dependencies
Set start and end dates for each task
Assign tasks to team members
Link dependent tasks
After identifying these properties, create a new database in Notion and input the information. Then select Timeline view to turn the data into a Gantt chart.
