The Extended settings tab offers a user the ability to configure additional customization, including such settings as initial auto-scheduling, default task duration, default unit for resource workload, custom markers, etc.
Auto scheduled dependencies
Editing a task on Gantt chart will re-schedule all dependent tasks. If setting is not enabled, changing a task will not move dependent tasks.
If setting is enabled, the tasks are auto-scheduled when a chart is loaded.
This option will only take effect if "Auto scheduled dependencies" is enabled.
Default unit for 'Edit task' dialog
A user can select a default unit if only a number is provided on "Edit task' dialog.
Default task duration
In case a task us unscheduled, it obtains a default duration. A user can define a default task duration in pretty format. Example: 1w 2d 4h 30m.
Default unit for resource workload
A user can select a default unit to use for a resource workload display on the Resource panel.
In-cell task disposition: whole cell
If setting is enabled: a task will fill the whole cell if its duration is equal to or exceeds the working hours for a given day. If setting is disabled: a task will be shown on a chart as filling part of a cell, according to taken working hours for a given day.
Custom chart markers (json)
In addition to such standard markers such as Today, release and sprint markers, a user can configure a display of custom markers.
Please feel free to use the example below to configure custom markers in accordance to your needs.
