Flash interactive Gantt (using Gantt4Flex and Flex)

Added by Cristian Spiescu over 10 years ago

Hello,

My team and I, we have been using redmine since 2007 and we are very satisfied with it.

I would like to contribute with a Gantt widget, written in Flex (i.e. compiled as a Flash application), using the Gantt4Flex library: http://www.gantt4flex.com/

It would allow a high degree of interactivity: not only see, but also modify directly from the Gantt diagram (e.g. modify task start/end, reassign subtask to other subtask (or target version), expand collapse sections, etc). An example of how this could look like is found here: http://www.gantt4flex.com/gantt4flex/samples/GanttSamples.html

What do you think about this?

Thank you.

Kind regards,
Cristian.

I think I should have put my topic in the "Open discussions" forum, according to the instructions. Perhaps the moderator could move it there if he thinks it is the case? (As I don't see how I can move the topic by myself).

Regards,
Cristian.

This is a great idea - the present Gannt in Redmine leaves a lot to desire, so this would be a welcome addition. I would even mean that this should be a part of the core.
What I do not understand, is have you made this or are you about to?

I think you will get more feedback if you create this in Open Discussions, and just declare this for closed.

Ohhh- just see that this is a commercial product.

I did put it in open discussions. However I didn't get any feedback yet (http://www.redmine.org/boards/1/topics/24077). How can I declare this topic closed? I should put [CLOSED] to the topic title?

What I do not understand, is have you made this or are you about to?

No. I didn't start the development. I'd start if this feature interests people.

Ohhh- just see that this is a commercial product.

Is this a problem? The component is offered for free for open source projects.

Best regards,
Cristian.

This is what easy-redmine actually does with their Advanced Drag and Drop Gannt

Yes, it'll be great to have such features in Redmine's gannt out of the box. But it's just a dream in real world.
