Monday work management is a powerful tool that offers a host of features to empower almost any type of project, team, and/or organization. With this platform, you have access to kanban boards, dashboards, charts, graphs, maps, forms, file galleries, apps, and Gantt charts.

A Gantt chart is a specific type of bar chart that illustrates the timeline of a project. Think of it this way: a Gantt chart is to a timeline what a Kanban board is to tasks. In other words, they make it very easy to view a timeline associated with a project to show the progress of various tasks.

Where a Kanban board shows how a task moves along a timeline, a Gantt chart shows a percentage of the progress of individual tasks within a project. For some, kanban boards are enough, but for others, Gantt charts are an absolute must.

So, how to create a Monday work management Gantt chart? Let me show you.

What you will need

To create Monday work management Gantt chart, you will need a paid account as the feature is not available in the free version. Paid accounts range from $6.00 per seat per month for the Basic account to $22 per seat per month for the Pro account. However, only the Standard, Pro, and Enterprise plans offer Gantt charts.

It’s also important to note that there is a minimum of three seats per plan, so a Standard plan will cost you a minimum of $30.00 per month, which is billed annually. This means that if you want Gantt charts, you pay a minimum of $360.00 per year for three seats. But if you want to try before you buy, you can test the Standard plan for 15 days.

How to Add a Gantt Chart to Your Monday Work Management Workspace

First, you can add some templates, such as the single project template, which already includes a Gantt view. The single project template can be found in the Project Management section of the Template Center (Figure A).

But, suppose you created your workspace using a template that doesn’t include Gantt charts. From your project’s default view, click + directly to the right of your last view (Figure B).

You will be allowed to rename the new Gantt chart (Figure D), which can be useful if you plan to add multiple Gantt charts to a single workspace.

Once you’ve added the new Gantt chart, hover your cursor over the name and click on the meatball menu. In the context menu (Figure E), you can choose from:

  • Add to my favorites
  • Rename
  • Duplicate
  • To share
  • Wipe off
  • Set as default card

If the Gantt chart view should be your main focus, click Set as default table, and every time you open the workspace, it will default to this view.

And that’s all there is to adding a Gantt chart to a Monday work management workspace. Do that, and your ability to keep track of that project’s schedule will be exponentially easier.
