Use the Tasks Gantt Chart form to create a graphical timeline of project tasks. The graphical timeline includes the relationship between the sequential and simultaneous tasks, the planned start and completion dates, percent completion, and project milestones.
The Tasks Gantt Chart answers the following questions.
  • Which tasks must you complete?
  • In what order must you complete the tasks?
  • How long do you need to complete the tasks?
  • How long did it take to complete the tasks?


  1. Identify and list each task sequentially.
  2. For each task, establish a planned start date, due date, and person assigned. Because the potential for changes to the task list is high, you should not add tasks to the task progress report until they are actually assigned to a team member.
  3. Enter any milestones such as a planned design review or a demo.
  4. As the project progresses, enter the percentage of tasks that are complete. Enter the percentage as a number (20) or a percent (20%).
  5. As the project progresses, enter any new milestones.
