I suggest Structure should ...

Hide the days and unworkable hours of the gantt grid. Especially when it is extended to the maximum (hours)

When the maximum detailing of the gantt chart is done, the days and hours that do not end up representing a greater amount of columns in the gantt. It would be much more practical with great visualization without these columns. Especially when there is a need to visualize tasks that are defined with small loads of hours and to be executed on the same day.

    Hi Alexey,

    You can ask what you want. I am here to help develop and improve your product. I also develop systems and interaction with our customers and of great importance and relevance to our growth.

    I particularly like working with the zoom level in hours when I have short-lived tasks, especially when I'm making fixes or new implementations that take little time to execute.

    For example, if I have 4 tasks that will consume 12hs of work, and one depends on the other, that is, task 2 depends on 1, 3 depends on 2, 4 depends on 3, when I see the gantt graph in level of zoom in hours, it is better for me to control and monitor the work of the professionals who are allocated in these tasks.

    Time in mind that I have a work schedule, 8:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., what I would like is that in zoom level in hours, that columns 12 and 13, 18 to 7, do not were shown. And if there are days that there will be no work (exception) and Saturday and Sunday are also not visible.

    Working with the zomm level in hours does not mean that I do not use the other zoom levels. Each of them has its importance and needs. I think this is fantastic in your product and I did not find it in other addons that I evaluated.

    I do not know if you have clarified your doubts and feel free to ask anything you wish.

    Hi Milson!

    Thank for your response! I have more questions for you, if you don't mind :)

    So, you prefer to schedule these several-hours of work tasks manually? That's because these tasks are independent of others or there is another reason? I mean, I'm trying to understand why are you going so deep and plan your tasks at hours zoom level.

    About the readiness. I'm trying to figure out how we can improve UX in your case (and probably in some similar cases) at the moment. That's probably can be done without even changing the timeline, but I need to understand your process in more detail to make any assumptions. Hours zoom level was originally designed to be clear of time distortions, missing hour, etc, and our thought was that our users will plan at higher levels and use hours zoom for exact time validation mostly.

    Thank you.

    Hi Alexey,
    How are you ?

    Answering your questions :

    * Is it true that most of your tasks take several hours of work?
    Yes it's true.

    Are you planning your tasks within a single timezone?
    Yes, I do not have the need to work with different time zones.

    * Do you use other zoom levels except 1 hour zoom?
    Yes, depending on the project. When I have some patch activities or small implementations, I only work with hours. Now, when I'm developing a new project, I always do my planning based on days. I hardly estimate time below 8hs. In this case I use the zoom level in days.

    The 1-hour zoom level is important to me when I have many tasks to run on the same day, consuming only a few hours.

    If there are other questions you want to know, I am at your disposal.

    When is it ready? lol

    Have a great weekend.

    Hi Milson!

    Thank you for the response!

    I got an idea of how your tasks are organized, but can you tell me more about overall process and particularly about:

    * Is it true that most of your tasks takes several hours of work?
    * Are you planning your tasks within a one single timezone?
    * Do you use other zoom levels except 1 hour zoom?

    Thank you.

    Hi Alexey,

    Thanks for your return.

    Let me try to explain better with the following example:

    I work from Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 14:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

    When I detail the columns in the gantt chart, to see the day and working hours, I would like to see the columns, 8, 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17.

    Columns 12 and 13 and 18 to 7 should not appear. The same is repeated for the days of the week, Saturday and Sunday should not appear either.

    Example:

    Task # 1, estimated time of 3 hours, beginning on May 7, 2018 at 5:00 p.m., the term will be on May 8, 2018 at 9:00 p.m. In the gantt chart, the columns 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 appear. It would be better, if Counts 18 to 7 do not appear.

    It is easier and more practical to see the gantt chart.

    Thank you
