Add Gantt Display Setting to show line for TODAY (current date)

I'm really happy with the latest round of changes that will be deployed in 2018.1 for Gantt. They are a good start in the right direction! One thing our PMs would really like to see is an Option in Gantt Settings to display a vertical line down the Gantt that indicates TODAY (the current date). Having the ability to display this will immediately provide a nice visual of where there project is actually tracking in respect to the current day on the Gantt Chart.

The TODAY option could look similar to the Milestone Diamonds option that is currently available, but possibly display as a red, bold vertical line.

I was about to propose exactly the same thing and I am happy that someone else did it! Everybody in my organization is asking for this.

Thanks, Vincenzo! I'm hoping we can get this voted up quickly so that it can be rolled in with other Gantt improvements that are being made at this time. 🙂

FYI, the today line will display on the gantt, but only if you zoom down to the day level. You should be able to have some representation of "today" no matter what zoom level you are at both the Project and Portfolio Level.

Just wanted to see if there was any additional interest in this feature, especially since they are actively working on gantt improvements!
