On the Gantt chart tab, you can build a Gantt chart for issues that match a certain filter.
The Gantt chart in Tracker is a tool for planning work on issues on the calendar. Deadlines for issues are marked on the chart as bars along the time axis. The beginning of each bar corresponds to the start date for working on the issue, and the end of the bar is the end date or deadline.
The bar color indicates the status of the issue:
- Yellow: the deadline hasn't passed yet.
Red: the deadline has already passed, but the issue is not closed.
Grey: the issue is closed.
