Overview

Backlogged tasks are tasks that don't have scheduled start and end dates.

You can see backlogged tasks in the table portion of the Gantt chart. However, backlogged tasks aren't visible on the timeline portion of the Gantt chart (because they don't have scheduled start and end dates). You can see their names grayed out at the bottom of the timeline or if you click on the task in the table.
