Misc

Restrictions

:!: Warning: GanttChatt only works with JPGraph. You must install and use it instead of the Bundled Graph library.

  • When the start or end date of one ticket is out of the range defined for the current gantt chart, then a marker is used at the boundary dates instead with an information on the real dates of the tickets.

Parent-Child relationship supported

  • As long as the parents/childs tickets are in the same list of rows

Customization

  • Define the range of maximum weeks to use in the representation of the gantt chart
  • Define the range of maximum tickets/issues to display in the gantt chart
  • Define the maximum length of the labels for the row, i.e. the length of “bug id + summary”
    • When the title exceed the maximum length, the title is truncated with “...” concatenated at the end.
  • Since version 1.2, it is now possible to specify the estimated duration of each ticket or in days or in hours. For instance ‘2d’ for 2 days, ‘4h’ for 4 hours.
    • It is also possible to customize the default unit to use ‘d’ or ‘h’ when the duration is set in the ticket without unit.
  • It is recommanded for the custom field to use one of type String, with the following regular expression:
    • ^[1-9]\d*[dh]?$

TODO / Expected future improvements
