Gantt setup is split into two parts — Gantt Chart settings and Gantt configuration. While first one defines basic gantt settings like Project start date, the latter one contains settings that affects scheduling and it could be shared between several charts.
At settings screen you can choose project start date and choose particular Gantt configuration to use for this chart:
Fix Versions and Sprints Timeline Settings
It is possible to visualize Fix Versions and Sprints at the chart, to do so you need to configure how your Sprints are defined and choose projects to pull fix versions from:
Chart Settings allow you to select how and which items are displayed within your Gantt chart. You can adjust your settings at any time by clicking the Gantt Chart Settings icon in the Gantt toolbar.
The Project Start Day is used as the starting point for automatic scheduling within your chart.
The Gantt Chart Configuration determines how items operate within your chart. This is where you set how scheduling, dependencies, and resources should work.
- If you are new to Structure.Gantt, we recommend starting with the Default configuration and modifying as necessary later.
- To make changes to an existing configuration, locate the configuration within the drop-down menu and click Edit.
- To build a new configuration, click Manage configurations.
To learn more about creating custom chart configurations, see Gantt Configuration.
Structure.Gantt can also place markers at the top of your timeline to show Fix Versions.
To enable this feature, simply enter the projects you want to show fix versions from.
In the event that the same version with the same release date is defined for multiple selected projects, those will be merged into one single Fix Version.
Structure.Gantt is able to visualize future sprintspast, current one and past ones. future sprints.
To configure future sprints, you need to specify:
- Sprint start day
- - the day of the week your sprints usually
Next you can choose an existing Spring board to pull sprints from. Structure.Gantt will use that information to visualize past and current sprints. Future sprints names will also be taken from existing board if you have planned several more sprints that aren't yet started.
Structure.Gantt is able to show Fix Versions the same way Project start and current date is shown, i.e. by placing small tooltips on top of the timeline. You can select several projects to show fix versions from.
- start on
- Duration - how long sprint lasts, in weeks
Future Sprint Scheduling
The first future sprint is scheduled for the Sprint start day immediately following the end of the active sprint. If the active sprint ends on the same day of the week as the Sprint start day, Structure.Gantt will visualize the active sprint ending on the previous day.
Future sprints are scheduled for the specified duration, and each additional future sprint begins immediately following the previous.
|If there is no active sprint, Structure.Gantt will base future sprints on the Planned Finish Date of the latest closed sprint. If there are no closed sprints, future sprints will begin on the first Sprint start day following the Project start date.|
|On your chart, there may be a gap between the active sprint and the first future sprint, based on the specified Sprint start day and the planned finish date for the active sprint. This is done to keep your start days consistent.|
Custom Sprint Schedules
You can also create custom schedules for sprints from specific boards. To add a custom schedule, click the Add sprints configuration link.
In the example above, any sprints from the SCRUM board will have a 3 week duration. All other sprints will use the default configuration (2 weeks).
If you have copied boards, make sure to assign all copies to the same custom configuration. See Same Sprint on Multiple Boards for more details.
