So I guess this is the best forum to bring up this concern. The gannting in shotgun is to remedial. It really needs to get some further development. Our scheduling department is constantly battling managing projects inside of shotgun. It lacks a few features that are super important in our line of work, like
- Splitting of Tasks.
- Parenting of Tasks
- Dependencies between Tasks
- Trendlines for Tasks
- Indication of percentage of Task completed
- Switches to include exclude Saturdays and Sunday on a per task basis
- Per Task preferences such as day length
We have been using a product called Fusion Charts to do reporting. They have a flash gannt chart that pretty much sums up the type of functionality we need from the gannt These demonstration are fairly interactive and worth looking at to get an idea of what Shotgun users requirements might be.
