Add a Gantt view
You can add a Gantt view at any level of the ClickUp Hierarchy.
Click + View.
Enter a name for the view.
Check the Private view box if you don't want anyone else to access it.
Check the Pin view box if you want it to always display.
Click Add View.
Showing items in Gantt view
The Gantt view's sidebar is expandable to see your hierarchy, including Spaces, Folders, and Lists. Each of these can be expanded further by clicking the dropdown arrow to the left of the name.
Hover over the level you wish to expand to reveal an icon to the left of the item. Clicking that icon will expand or collapse all levels to tasks and subtasks.
Easily adjust your Gantt sidebar through drag-and-drop to create your ideal order for tasks, Lists, and Folders.
When you expand a List, all scheduled tasks and subtasks will be shown.
If a task or subtask is not displayed, it's likely unscheduled. To change that, all you need to do is line up with the unscheduled task and click to add it to the date you want.
Tasks in a Done or Complete status are displayed on Gantt views by default. You can hide any status using filters.
Sorting tasks in Gantt view
You can sort tasks in Gantt view by:
- Assignees will be sorted by the number of assignees from highest to lowest. Tasks with individual assignees are sorted alphabetically (from A to Z).
- Date Created
- Date Updated
- Due Date
- Task ID
- Order Index
- Task Name
- Start Date
Syncing the sort order between Gantt and List view
The task sort order will sync between Gantt and List views when they are located at the same level of the hierarchy, the Gantt view is manually sorted, and when your List view is:
- Grouped by: None.
- Manually sorted.
- Subtasks: Expand all.
Add tasks and more in Gantt view
Easily add Folders, Lists, tasks, and subtasks right from the Gantt view sidebar!
Go to any Gantt view in your Workspace.
Hover to the right of a Space, Folder, List, or task.
Click the + icon to create a Folder, List, task, or subtask.
Draw lines between tasks to automatically set and visualize dependencies.
When Reschedule Dependencies is enabled, dragging a task with dependencies will automatically reschedule all subsequent tasks in the chain.
Delete dependencies by hovering over and clicking on the dependency line and then selecting Delete.
Quickly determine how much is required to complete a Folder or List by hovering over the progress bar. Progress percentage is calculated by tasks completed divided by the total tasks in the group.
Rescheduling groups of tasks
Move an entire Space, Folder, or List on the chart to remap all contained tasks' start and due dates.
Edit tasks in bulk without ever leaving your Gantt view!
Hover over the tasks you'd like to edit
Click the task selector on the left side
Use the Multitask Toolbar to make your edits
Note: If you're simply looking to make bulk edits to the due date, drag-and-drop those tasks to the correct dates on the Gantt view.
Setting up your chart
Click the Show button and select Color Scheme.
Default: Each task is colored by open, active, or complete. Blue tasks are active, Green are complete, and Yellow are Milestones.
Priority: Tasks are colored based on priority flags. Either Red (Urgent), Yellow (High), Blue (Normal), Grey (Low) , or White (none).
Status: Tasks are colored by the status they're currently in. Spaces, Folders, and Lists are colored by type.
List: Tasks and Lists are colored by the Lists set color. Spaces and Folders are still differing shades of grey.
