Custom chart settings (beta)

These settings are mostly used for hot-fixes or for early access to the features that haven’t been tested yet. These settings have the following limitations:

  • Setting affects only the browser / computer where setting is changed. If you use multiple browsers (like Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.) then you will have to repeat the steps in each browser.

  • We do not guarantee the correct work, as these are beta features that aren’t tested by quality assurance engineers; However we would appreciate your bug reports, in case you find a bug that is not specified in the table below

Please hover over a key in the table, till the copy icon appears. Then, click the copy icon in order to copy the key.

Please don’t use the selection and Ctrl +C as it will lead to incorrect coping.

1

Perform auto-scheduling on chart load. If the chart has linked tasks, and links were added outside Gantt Suite, for example directly on Jira issue edit page, then tasks may be positioned incorrectly. Enabling this option would force chart to check all the links and fix tasks scheduled dates when a chart is loaded.
NOTE: this setting will be turned on by default once we implement custom lag/gap between two tasks

1 gsj-autoSchedulingInitial

1 - enabled
0 - disabled

Default is: 0

 

2

By default, the linked tasks are brought together so no lag appears between them. If this beta feature is disabled, it prevents such auto-scheduling and lets user to adjust tasks manually.

1 gsj-autoScheduling

1 - enabled
0 - disabled

Default is: 1

 

3

Stick to calendar day start / end if possible.
Lets say a chart has working hours set to 8am-5pm, and we have a task that starts 8am and ends 5pm.

Feature disabled: task will be shown on chart as taking part of the day cell (8am-5pm).

Feature enabled: task will stick to calendar day edges, e.g. task will be shown on chart as taking the whole day cell.

This is just a convenience feature, that may help with drag&drop operations, when you want to clearly see when task starts or ends on start or end of business hours.

1 gsj-stickToGridIfBoundaryTime

1 - enabled
0 - disabled

Default is: 0

Only works if the chart’s Scheduling mode is By task start.

4

Change format of the dates

1 dateFormat

DD - 2-digits day
D - one or two digits day
MM - month (number)
MMM - month (Jan, Feb, etc.)
MMMM - full month name
YYYY - 4-digit year
YY - 2-digit year

Default is: DD/MMM/YYYY

Example: MM-DD-YYYY

12 / 24 hours format

1 timeFormat24Hrs

1 - enabled (format is 24 hrs)
0 - disabled (format is AM / PM)

Unit to use in task edit dialog if only number provided

1 gsj-defaultDurationUnit
