Print a Gannt chart?

Avatar

Level 10

Hi - my new boss likes visuals so a list of tasks isn't going to go over well. The Gannt view of a project is perfect, but I can't seem to print it for him. It always cuts off and even when I print to a Ledger size, it doesn't show it the way I see it on my screen. Is there a way to do this, or do I have to figure out a Report that will display it?

I'll answer myself but still wondering if there is a better way. I made a new view that only has the Task Name, Assignment, Due Date, opened the Gannt and printed to Legal and it worked pretty well. Wish there were more print options to size this. Since this is a short duration project with only 15 or so tasks, but if it was more complex I'm not sure it would look nice.

Yeah, the printing options for Gantt aren't the best. We ended up creating something that allows the user to print to Excel so they can define the print area they want. It was a bit of work, but if anyone has a developer and wants more details, let me know.

Related to this, I found several ideas in the Innovation Lab about Gantt charts, printing them and exporting them. @Jeremy Flores‚ I think some of these could be merged. @Jill Ackerman‚ if you haven't already, check some of these out and consider adding votes to them.
