Easy-to-build project scheduling

When starting a new project, it can be hard to properly allocate resources without knowing exactly what you’ll need, day-by-day. Knowify’s gantt charts let you build a detailed, phase-based view for each of your jobs. Plot out the job based on the length of each phase, and easily create schedules for your crew without guesswork or idle-time.

Project dependencies for better resource management

Keep projects moving, without wasting time

Prevent the headaches that come from seeing your team sit by because they can’t get started on their part of a job. 

  • Easily create several types of task dependencies for your tasks, so your schedules will be automatically shifted if a phase goes longer than expected. 
  • Get the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the team members you sent to a job can get started right away.

What is a gantt chart in construction?  

A gantt chart in construction is a visual project management tool that provides a timeline view of project activities, tasks, and milestones. Contractors use gantt chart to plan, schedule, and track the progress of their projects.

They provide a visual roadmap for the entire project team, while improving coordination, communication, and the overall management of construction projects.

What is the best software for making a gantt chart for a construction project?  

Most project management software will give you the ability to build a gantt chart for your project, or at the very least, give you something similar. You can even build a gantt chart manually in Excel. 

However, we recommend using construction project management software like Knowify to get the most out of gantt charts. Knowify’s gantt charts are one piece of a larger platform that allows you to do everything from plan projects in phases, schedule your crews to the project, track time, and manage overall project finances.
