Gantt Chart Dates with Duration

Hi Wrike,

 

I feel your Gantt Chart is underpowered in a very specific way in the Gantt Chart system. When inputting a start date for a task, most of the time you can know how long something will take e.g. 4 months. I want the Gantt to calculate the end date based on me inputting the start and duration, but this doesn't seem to be possible. I think this is a very significant flaw to be honest, as I need to manually calculate it. Unlike MS Project or other software where this is automatic. I would have thought that this is a fairly easy thing to update on your product, would you consider improving this function please? Or point out that it is me not knowing how - that could well be possible.  It is just quite frustrating when I am trying to the use the system as a whole and not have to use other software's for this feature. 

 

Kind Regards

Mark Hallinan

Hi Mark Hallinan, thank you for sharing this question with us. When you input the duration and the start date in the Gantt chart view, the due date is automatically added:

1 -

2 -

3 -

Is this what you were looking for?

Hi Juan,

Thank you for getting back to me.

Thank you for showing me this method. I was doing this from the individual task. I will try this method instead. 

I noticed you can't type in weeks - is that correct? 

Kind Regards

 

Mark
