Vizlib Gantt: Four powerful features for Qlik Sense

Vizlib Gantt:  Four powerful features for Qlik Sense

Vizlib Gantt is the user-friendly solution that supercharges your project planning. Built specifically to get more from your Qlik Sense, it comes packed with features that help you visualize your process, forecast accurately, and ultimately create better project outcomes. 

This blog runs you through some key features of Vizlib Gantt, and how you can leverage them to reach your goals. Check out our demo apps for another great way to see the powerful functionalities of Vizlib Gantt in context.

Project Planning

Vizlib Gantt helps you easily visualize timelines for deadlines and tasks, set upcoming events and activities within your projects, and communicate plans with your team in an intuitive way. 

It’s deeply customizable, with icons, colours, graphs, images, events and milestones. This enables you to create cohesive project plans that meet your requirements, and those of your stakeholders.

Of course, “no plan survives first contact with the enemy”–  the simple drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to update and adjust every element of your project once it’s underway. 

Speaking of changing plans, you can unlock even more flexibility with our powerful Writeback capabilities. Vizlib Writeback Table enables you and your team to directly edit data and share insights, without leaving your project plan. 

Vizlib Gantt becomes more powerful with Vizlib Writeback. As projects shift, updating the latest data in-app becomes key to keeping on top of complex projects.

Long term goal management

According to the Milken Institute Review, companies who managed for the long-term averaged 47% higher revenue and 36% higher earnings growth than companies who focused on short-term objectives. 

However, it can be challenging to keep track of long-term goals and ensure that you’re making progress. According to the Phoenix Business Journal, 80% of organisations fail to track their business goals. That’s where Gantt comes in.

Vizlib Gantt displays your plan in a single dynamic, chronological visualization, so it’s easy to track progress and stay focused on the big picture. Of course, it’s also important to drill down into the details sometimes; Custom Tooltips give you the nuance you need. 

Resource forecasting 

Forecasting resource availability is a powerful project management practice, empowering you to predict and prevent shortages that could disrupt your project. By analysing past data and current trends, you can gain a better understanding of your project’s resource needs and make informed decisions about resource allocation.

Combining Vizlib Gantt with other intuitive Vizlib products takes this to a whole new level. See below how Vizlib Library and Vizlib Gantt work together seamlessly, creating deeper insights so you can better optimise resources .

Process visualization

Vizlib Gantt’s powerful visualizations optimise your workflow by identifying issues and risks, such as bottlenecks, late payments, or missed deadlines. The start-to-finish view also makes it easier to spot opportunities; is there scope to deploy resources more efficiently, move forward targets, or scale-up your projects? 

Progress bars display against your targets such as duration, completion, and spend, down to the percentage. This helps you to monitor progress in real-time and make decisions based on the latest information.
