Color Coded Gantt Charts

You can use the color-coded layouts to give color to various activities, milestones and project specifics. There is a key on the right side of each Gantt chart with sample text suggesting a meaning for each color. You can replace this according to need. For example, you can replace the color given to budget, time or resources. You can also expand the Gantt chart to design your project breakdown by editing the design elements using drag and drop.
