      Thanks for the suggestion.

      Do you know of other javascript gantt components which support the import functionality you are requesting? If there are, feel free to provide a reference to be able to research their implementations, thanks.

    • Add setting templates to the cells inside the TreeList section of Gantt.

      With this customization it will be possible to use checkboxes or combo boxes and normalize the selection of data. Actually is possible to use only text and date columns.

      • Gantt table column options: resize column width, reorder, locked, hide/unhide

        In the Gantt table we would like to configure columns:
        - width
        - order
        - locked column
        - hide/unhide (columnMenu)

        Same as done in TreeList in Q1 2015

        • critical path

          Add a way to highlight the critical path in the Gantt Chart. This is a basic feature in project management and would be really great if you can implement,.

            • Add ng-click to Gantt Column like in Grid

              I am working with AngularJs and in the normal Grid its possible to add ng-click Events to Columns with the Attribute Property for the ColumnDefintion, that would be great if this works too for the Gantt Chart. Because I can add a ng-click to Gantt Column and with the event I can get the current row Id and open my own custom Modal to edit the Values.

              • Allow Kendo UI Gantt chart control to handle time zones

                We would like you add capability to Gantt chart control to handle time zones of the browsers. Currently, when Gantt chart control renders in browsers based in different time zones, it displays event start date/end date differently in each time zone no matter where the source code of the web application resides.

                • Support for Actual and Planned Comparison in Gantt Chart

                  Most of the time project managers would like to compare planned start & end dates vs actual start and end dates in gantt view. This feature is not supported by current Gantt chart. What I'm envisioning is something similar to the implementation of Gantt chart by Fusion Charts. (http://www.fusioncharts.com/charts/gantt-charts/). Displaying delays in actual task compared to plan would be an an added advantage. This feature may be implemented using a task template, but it's nice to have feature in the control.

                    • Gantt deadlines

                      Allow storing a deadline in a Gantt Task. This could be used to visualise deadlines as you can in Telerik's Silverlight Gantt chart: http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/#GanttView/Deadline,
                      or it could be used to figure out which tasks to highlight that are late, overdue or on the critical path.

                      • Gantt Scaling Adjustment For PDF Export

                        Problem: We really want to fit Gantt's on particular paper sizes (def. landscape A3); however, using the paperSize option doesn't really work as the output (font size, row heights, etc.) end up being too big and not suitable.

                        And for the majority of the time, paperSize set to auto creates an output (font size mostly) too small.

                        Rock and a hard place...

                        Solution 1: When pdf.paperSize is not set to auto i.e. A3, A4, etc. Allow a percentage scaling to be set, ideally individually, on X and Y.

                        Solution 2: Scale fonts and scale timeline on X axis maintaining taskList…

                          In the Gantt control there should be events for expand/collapse to provide things like on-demand loading of subnodes for large project-trees

                            • Gantt Chart file creation progress events

                              The current list of events associated with PDF creation of Gantt chart data is insufficient. In order to make this control production suitable the following PDF generation events/features would be needed:

                              1.- Ability to provide progress on the PDF file generation. Right now this can take minutes.

                              2.- Ability to cancel a PDF generation that is in progress. Right now this is not possible, but would be needed for lengthy operations.

                                  • Add support for styling and customizing Gantt charts

                                    I'm interested in using the Gantt chart for a project scheduling application but I need a lot more customization on the look & feel than is currently available. For instance, being able to eliminate the secondary timescale bar under the primary so that if you're in, say, the month view there is no 'week' slots under it.

                                      Thanks for sharing your proposal. I’ll pass it to our developer for further consideration.

                                      In the meantime you can hide the headers for the week columns in gantt month view using the following code:

                                      $(“#gantt”).find(“.k-grid-header-wrap table thead tr:nth-child(1)”).css(“display”,“none”)

                                      where ‘gantt’ is the id of the div on which the gantt is instantiated

                                      From the 2015.2 release to the 2015.3 release, the built-in validation on the Start date was removed from the left-hand treelist. So now I can move the Start date to be after the Finish date, and the Gantt control responds by treating this as a "move". However, there is still built-in validation on the Finish date so that I cannot move the Finish date to before the start. I would expect the same behavior for changes in both directions. If I change the Finish date to before the Start date, then this should also be treated as a "move", where…

                                        Thanks for the report, Brian.

                                        To escalate the resolution of this case, can you report it via our standard support channels (forums or support system) at telerik.com? Thus our colleagues will review and address it accordingly. Thank you for your cooperation.

                                        • Develop a Translator for the Gantt Chart control to help integration with Test Studio

                                          We have been looking into the possiblity of using Telerik Test Studio; however, the Gantt Chart control from Kendo is a key part of our application, and having a Translator to help with validating the control contents would be really helpful.
