Gantt Chart Software

A Gantt Chart provides a timeline for a project giving an overview of how a project is progressing. Project tasks are easy to see relative to one another, and allows multiple users to see how the project is progressing over time and what steps or tasks are next.

Excel Gantt Chart

Excel was traditionally created to be a data analytics and number crunching tool, but 60% of spreadsheets today contain no formulas. Its usage has now evolved to serving as a project management tool.

While you can coordinate basic work tasks and manage lists, creating a Gantt chart in Excel, from scratch, can be a time-consuming and frustrating task. Unless you want to spend up to an hour manually tweaking Excel to look professional and presentation-ready, an Excel template is the easiest way to make a Gantt chart.

A template is especially helpful if you don’t have a lot of experience making a project timeline. All you have to do is enter your project information into a pre-made table and the Gantt chart will automatically reflect the changes.

With so many available timeline templates in Excel, how do you know which one is the easiest to use? We’ve sorted through them all and found the best Gantt chart template for Excel. This site will guide you to using a Gantt chart template for Excel with your own project information.
