Gantt view of tasks

Further to previous requests via the Vote forum, I would like to reiterate the desire for a graphical, gantt style view in order to allow me (as manager) to review team member's workloads and help to programme tasks to prevent bottlenecks. A start date as well as end date for each task would also be necessary to make this as useful as possible.

Currently all tasks are shown to run from current date to the deadline, which is not helpful.

Now the Vote forum has been taken down, can you please give an update as to whether this functionality is being considered / developed?

Hello Simon,

Thank you for your feedback, we may consider adding such option in the future, but it's not being developed at the moment.

Best regards,

As much as I and my team love Todoist, the lack of this feature may well lead to me moving to another app. :-(

I'm pretty sure that there was a ground swell for this feature on the Vote forum - it's a shame that it isn't being considered for development / addition.

This is something I would also like to see. I have a separate calendar app on my phone (that syncs) which just shows when the tasks are due although a gantt style addon would be a great addition (both on the website and on my phone)

A gantt view would be a great addition.

Thanks for considering it.

Hi everyone,

Bog fan of Todoist here! I tried several tools before adopting Todoist wholeheartedly.
Todoist works because while it is very simple in use, it is versatile and allows for deep organization structures. But it just works!

I understand other features may need immediate attention, but not having some sort of Gantt functionality -- as basic as it might be -- is a huge handicap.

I was browsing through the numerous forum entries suggesting / asking for this function and realized how long it has been since
1. the necessity and longing from users was expressed clearly and in volume
2. users have been informed that Todoist was working on it
3. todoist has been postponing it

Some threads are 2 years old!

And now David informs us that
"we may consider adding such option in the future, but it's not being developed at the moment."

Come on guys!! How long do you have to be in denial until you understand users DO NEED the feature and WILL leave the platform if the app cannot do the job? We´re not asking for anything that contradicts the filosophy of the service (like a My Little Pony backgroung or something), only a simple and clean visual guide on our tasks.

I am getting the feeling it won´t be implemented because it is meant to be so.

Sorry about the rant, but users have always contributed to the app´s development in amazing spirit. Please don´t waste this effort.
