How much is your time worth?

No comments

I just watched this nice video on how to trick Excel into making a Gantt chart.

It’s not that the process seems difficult, it’s just very time consuming:

  1. Create your task list, with start dates, durations and end dates.
  2. Create a stacked bar chart form this data.
  3. Modify your bar chart to make the start dates invisible.
  4. Modify your bar chart to make the tasks appear in the correct order (in ascending order of start date).

  6. Modify your bar chart axis divisions so that you can easily see if some tasks overlap.
