Timeline view of project like MS project


Level 4


Be able to generate timeline view in detail for the entire project. I want to be able to color code each task on the timeline. I want to be able to see subtasks within the larger task on the timeline. I want to be able to see milestones and a marker for today's date on the timeline. MS project has these functionalities.



Level 9


We are working on a custom replica of the MS Project timeline via the API. The MS Project timeline view is amazingly useful and would be a fantastic addition to Workfront.


Level 3


We've dumped MS project because it does not have the collaborative aspect of assigning and working together on a same platform. It is not living as Workfront platform offers living project planification and tracking.

The drawback is that the pure gantt chart ease of use, is not fully integrated in Workfront. MS project is the reference for easy planning. I suggest that Workfront review the ease of use of MS project gantt chart functionalities


Level 2


Thank you so much for contributing to this idea.

We fully understand the value this feature would bring in helping visualise the overall timeline and milestones of a project. Currently we have many valuable items in our backlog and will be reviewing and researching this one to consider in the context of our roadmap prioritization. At this time we anticipate that the target range for a resolution would be beyond 12 months, so I will be marking this as Not Planned for now. But we will look forward to following up with our findings and updates on progress as we assess the appropriate prioritization and timeline for this effort. We will ensure that as changes occur to either our approach or timeline on this issue that we will provide updates here accordingly.

Best regards,

Anna Asatryan

Product Manager, Workfront
