If you need a comprehensive solution than the native Confluence roadmap macro, then this app is for you!
Gantt Chart Planner brings your project to life, laying out tasks, resources, milestones, and dependencies. And it’s embedded directly on your Confluence page like any standard macro.
Along with the work breakdown structure, you’ll have the high-level timeline view, with each bar representing a task. It also indicates the task duration to aggregate the overall completion timeline for you.
No more chasing deadlines or scrambling to meet last-minute changes. By enabling the Critical path view, Gantt chart helps reveal potential bottlenecks before they arise, allowing you to adjust your plan proactively.
You can even map out dependencies to prioritize the sequential order across all deliverables.
The visual nature of the chart makes it quick and intuitive to update progress and keep your plan relevant, ensuring you’re always navigating the most accurate map of your project’s ever-evolving landscape.
That’s not all, you can extend Confluence to manage resources and plan capacity alignment with your projects as well.
Unlike the standard roadmap macro, with Gantt Chart Planner, you can assign tasks for clarity into the team’s responsibilities.
The app lets you add Confluence users to the Resource field, or you can also create custom resources if you’re collaborating with external users.
Based on the actual team’s capacity, you can adjust the resource unit to reflect their availability. That way, the app can accurately estimate the corresponding timeline for completing the project.
