Currently % complete calcs for summary tasks are based solely on the sum of % complete per child task / number of child tasks (x%+y%+z%)/3. In this way, a small scale task of 1 or 2 days has a large impact on summary % complete whereas a large task of 60 days has a small impact. Request is to add in weighting based on duration (end date - start date).
You can have thousands of lines (rows) of project data....you can't load the entire plan and scroll through it
Currently there is only template for Gantt I need to be able to control the tooltip behaviour. showOn:"mouseenter", "click" , "focus" autoHide: true, false position: "bottom", "top", "left", "right", "center"
Right now the Gantt marks the current day with a line. It would be great if we could pass an array of objects with title, type and begin/end information, which would be marked on the timeline background in a similar way -- for example display holidays or context time information (when planning something in a larger context). Does not need to be editable -- being able to override the color for each object would be nice
Problem: We really want to fit Gantt's on particular paper sizes (def. landscape A3); however, using the paperSize option doesn't really work as the output (font size, row heights, etc.) end up being too big and not suitable. And for the majority of the time, paperSize set to auto creates an output (font size mostly) too small. Rock and a hard place... Solution 1: When pdf.paperSize is not set to auto i.e. A3, A4, etc. Allow a percentage scaling to be set, ideally individually, on X and Y. Solution 2: Scale fonts and scale timeline on X axis maintaining taskList width. Ultimately, get a large plan to fit on landscape A3.
The Gantt widget has support for parent-child relationship, but the hierarchy only works, if the title property of a gantt task is used in column definitions. So if you have for example only an ID column in your column definition, you can not expand/shrink hierarchy. Suggested improvement: make this option configurable via the columns declaration by adding "expandable: true/false" or make the hierarchy appear in the first column if the title property is not in the columns declaration.
From the 2015.2 release to the 2015.3 release, the built-in validation on the Start date was removed from the left-hand treelist. So now I can move the Start date to be after the Finish date, and the Gantt control responds by treating this as a "move". However, there is still built-in validation on the Finish date so that I cannot move the Finish date to before the start. I would expect the same behavior for changes in both directions. If I change the Finish date to before the Start date, then this should also be treated as a "move", where the duration of the task is retained, and the Start is also moved back N days. This is a trivial change to make. I think it's removing 1 line of code. And this would really help with usability for users who want to achieve a "move" action, but who prefer to edit their data using the left-hand treelist instead of the right-hand timeline.
We have been looking into the possiblity of using Telerik Test Studio; however, the Gantt Chart control from Kendo is a key part of our application, and having a Translator to help with validating the control contents would be really helpful.
We would like you add capability to Gantt chart control to handle time zones of the browsers. Currently, when Gantt chart control renders in browsers based in different time zones, it displays event start date/end date differently in each time zone no matter where the source code of the web application resides.
The current list of events associated with PDF creation of Gantt chart data is insufficient. In order to make this control production suitable the following PDF generation events/features would be needed: 1.- Ability to provide progress on the PDF file generation. Right now this can take minutes. 2.- Ability to cancel a PDF generation that is in progress. Right now this is not possible, but would be needed for lengthy operations.
I'm interested in using the Gantt chart for a project scheduling application but I need a lot more customization on the look & feel than is currently available. For instance, being able to eliminate the secondary timescale bar under the primary so that if you're in, say, the month view there is no 'week' slots under it.
