Enhance Confluence project planning and resource management with these features

Gantt Chart Planner is a Confluence macro that allows you to embed an interactive Gantt chart on a page.

If you’re already creating content on Confluence, you’ll get familiar with the Gantt chart macro in seconds. It’s as simple as the native Roadmap macro, yet powerful enough to facilitate your project needs from start to finish.

Visualize your project timelines, dependencies, and milestones with ease

When drafting a project plan, you can instantly create deliverables and assign them to your team. This makes it easier to communicate with stakeholders about project stages and task relationships while ensuring a realistic schedule based on the team’s capacity.

Drag-and-drop task scheduling, automatic effort calculation, and resource utilization

Imagine having an interactive roadmap on your Confluence page!

Gantt Chart Planner for Confluence lets you view and navigate around tasks on the timeline without having to edit the page. Simply open the Gantt chart editor, and you can start adding tasks and assignees right away.

The best part? You can set the schedule and define the allocated work hours for respective tasks, and the app will automatically summarize the resource workload for you. It’s also possible to automate task scheduling based on available resources. Learn more about it here: calculate duration and assignment units using effort.

Customize your project roadmap and timeline for different stakeholders

You can customize how your Gantt chart is displayed on the page in “View mode.” Perhaps your stakeholders won’t need to see the detailed plan and prefer viewing the high-level timeline schedule. You can easily set specific views as a “Default” state when publishing content.


Currently, the app supports CSV export so you can share the Gantt chart outside Confluence.
