Freeze Columns make editing and navigating easier

We all know how tricky it can be to navigate and edit complex tables – mistakes easily creep in! So we’ve introduced a tool to make this easier for you.

As the name suggests, Freeze Columns allows you to fix a column to one side, while you explore the rest of the table. This not only  saves time but allows you to edit your tables with confidence.

Colouring options for specific events

Vizlib Gantt Chart supports a variety of colouring options for events in the Appearance section of the Property Panel. Now you can define finer control over how each event is coloured. Apply an ‘If’ statement to your set to highlight a specific event – like a missed deadline – to make it stand out!

Group measures using expressions 

We’ve just released a tool that will make it easier for you and your team to read and navigate tables. The new capability, Group Measures using expressions, allows you to group data easily and effectively as you require.

Using an expression to your group measures will also make your data more dynamic, yet still user-friendly.
