Gantt Charts for projects

    I have been searching around for a new cloud based project management tool, found Podio, thought: "Great! This might simplify everything!" and then found out there is no Gantt or visualization. Well, so much for using this software. Why is this not prioritized to implement? If you want to reinvent how people plan projects, fine, but my recommendation, to keep yourselves afloat, is to add Gantt charts first so you don't experience mass user exodus. Remember your clients are project managers here. There are TONS of people above me here asking for a Gantt, and I am asking the same. Look, you guys have made an awesome product with a fatal design flaw here. I'd say make a Gantt absolute top of your priority list or risk losing tons and tons of users. This is like building a high-end sports car without a windshield, or something like that. +1 for Gantt!

    +1 for Gantt. I just don't see how hard that could be to implement. Mirror it from Smartsheet so I can remove SmartSheet from our business. If not, merge with Smartsheet so you have the awesomeness of their Gantt chart and then they have the awesomeness of your Project workflow.

    Hi Troels, new and improved gnat chart sounds great looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with. Would it be possible to have the old one up until the new is live as we are left without a solution for now which is a pain for active projects...

    Many thanks.

  • Hey Dimitris,

    Sadly the old Gantt for Podio won't be online again. However I can see that you've signed up for early access, and I'll make sure that you're included in the beta. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I hope you guys can hold out until the beta is up and running.

    The strange thing is how you don't leave any space to this basic issue of each serious project management tool.
    We all love your product and appreciate his potential, but we absolutely need this integration INTO Podio.
    I've exchanged my opinion with your partner Anders Bendix Kiel, that built SmartGantt, but this is not the solution we'll use.
    Not in this way. I think that a good compromise could be the execution of it (and of many other external feature/app) into a integrated box built like a module. Is it so unrealizable?

    Just adding that we were another potential customer, Podio could have been ideal for us, but the lack of Gantts means I'll need to look elsewhere.

    We have now launched SmartGantt. SmartGantt allows you to see Podio items from multiple apps inside one Gantt chart. See more here: www.smartgantt.com.

    You can also watch the video intro here: http://smartgantt.com/take-a-tour/

    We know its not integrated 100% into Podio, but we hope you like it anyway.

    Best

    Yes plus 1 on this. I know another service has come out with a Gantt chart, called smartgantts, but I am not going to pay for another service provider and login to another website. Please Podio!!!

    +1 this should be something within PODIO and part of what PODIO provides and not a third party please.

    No third party apps, no way. Where's the Podio ingame Gantt chart? That's like management 101

    At least a timeline calendar view would help.

    +1 for Podio Gantt App. Tried BendixKiel and am now back in excel, copying/pasting, formating.... So frustratingly tedious.
    Love Podio - so surprised that it doesn't have Gantt.

    Podio, please consider building native Gantt chart ability into the software. Without this, managing long term projects with time sensitive milestones is like trying to cross a country without a map or GPS! It can be done, but through much difficulty!

    Tried SmartGantt and it's very complicated... does not side scroll, very difficult to scale, no printing options or PDF...
    Podio is 100%, everything is well done and we have everything we need, but no decent Gantt. That's sad...

    @Filipe, thank you for your feedback. Our support is always ready to help, if you have any questions or need any help. Scroll should work perfectly. We have not received any support tickets with users having problems with scroll.

    It sounds like it has been some time since you tried SmartGantt. At least, we rolled out a lot of improvements a couple of weeks ago. Among these were advanced filtering and improved scaling. :-) Please have a look.

    I am so happy that you mention PDF and printing. These are on out work list right now. :-)

    Which specific things did you find difficult? We are very much open to user inputs and are working hard to improve SmartGantt all the time.

    Have you had a look at our tutorial videos on our youtube channel? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzHYqPf-q-EEo00LC23mY8w

    I hope this helps. If not, you are more than welcome to contact our support team.

    Best regards

    Can anyone explain why podio ignores gantt? I cannot believe that these guys cannot see advantage to have this in one bundle. I use about 20 other external web apps for my business and honestly I do not want to use other one (smartgantt.com) just to have gantt view. This must be in podio - I thing that podio can win the battle if the basic features will be in one place - mainly gantt and time tracking - otherwise there are better products out there. I just hope that podio will not ignore to include one the most required feature.

    Posted about a year ago asking for this. No change from Podio which is disappointing. Just re-visited the http://gantt.bendixkiel.org/ one and it's much improved in that time. Worth another look for those, like me, who have previously dismissed it due to being clunky and basic.

    This recently came up at our workplace and yes, we really need this feature too. SmartGantt is NOT a solution, as it is not fully integrated, requires a separate login, and hosted on a completely different website.

    One suggestion: add a "year" option to the calendar layout as a first step toward this. Then at least I can see how all my projects display the entire year. If Podio developers are looking to add simplicity, and can't imagine anything more simple!

    Please, Podio?

    +1 for gantt.
    I must agree with the numerous post on this subject.
    I recently 'came to Podio' with our startup, and I'm surprised to see that the gantt charting feature is missing.
