Scroll Bars on Gantt Chart

Please add scroll bars to the Gantt Chart view.

A horizontal scroll bar exists for Workload charts, but not Gantt charts. These are both timeline based layouts, and it makes no sense that there is no scroll bar for the Gantt chart.

The biggest issue with not having scroll bars is that you have to click and drag with the house on the Gantt chart itself to scroll it. You also click and drag to set or move dates on tasks so there is an overlap of functionality.  I have accidentally assigned a random date to a task or moved task dates many times just by trying to scroll. This is a real pain. With a sizable project, accidentally moving the dates of a task on the Gantt chart can be very difficult to notice or correct as you don't know what the date was previously.

It's dangerous and frustrating to screw up your dates because you were just trying to scroll. Simply adding a scroll bar as it is in other views, like the Workload chart, would solve this issue. It's not hard, and would have a positive improvement for ALL users.

Please address this issue.

Thank you.

Any movement on this? I keep messing up my Gantt chart by trying to grab and scroll, only to screw up the dates on a given task.

Cansu, I find this very disappointing. This is a known issue in the Gantt charts, that grabbing and dragging to navigate often ends up in changing dates on tasks as this click and drag is the same motions used to add or change dates as well as navigating the view. It is very poor design.

The Workload charts has scrollbars, so why can't the Gantt charts? It's not that complicated. It's a standard UI element that can be added, as it is in almost all other views.  Why is this the only view that doesn't have them? Especially when it uses the same mouse movement to actually edit the data? It's a real problem.

The Product team is currently focusing on other improvements; you can check out our Betas & More forum to get an idea of some of the areas that the team is focusing on now. I completely understand that this is disappointing news for you. The team always aims to prioritize improvements that will benefit the majority of users, and although they understand your feedback here, they can't prioritize these improvements at the moment. 
 
I can also suggest bringing more attention here in terms of votes, for the team to see how popular this suggestion is among our Community members. I'm sorry for not bringing your better news here.
 
Please rest assured the team continues to receive and review your feedback, and appreciate it even if they can't act upon it at the momen
