Looking for an easy way to create a gantt chart on the fly with the tools you’re already using? We’ve rounded up the best gantt chart templates for Excel, Google Sheets, and PowerPoint.

None of these tools are actually made for creating gantt charts, so the creators had to do some fancy things to get them to look right. If you’re really short on time and need to create a project plan now, nothing’s faster than using TeamGantt’s free gantt chart software.

Best Excel gantt chart template

We were a bit disappointed by all the templates we found for Excel, so we went ahead and built our own free Excel gantt chart template.

This easy-to-use gantt chart template is great for scheduling simple projects that don’t require real-time collaboration. Simply plug all your project info into the Excel template, and you’re ready to present your project timeline to stakeholders in a flash.

TeamGantt’s free Excel gantt chart template enables you to:

  • Customize the gantt chart to fit your project needs
  • Set up new tasks
  • Assign task dates and team members
  • Automate task durations and timeframes
  • Track task progress
The easiest way to make a gantt chart

Build a beautiful gantt chart with drag and drop simplicity in just 10 minutes. Best of all, you can collaborate easily as a team and keep track of project progress in real time.

Best Google Sheets gantt chart template

We were on a roll creating gantt chart templates, so we went ahead and built one for Google Sheets too. This free Google Sheets gantt chart template provides options for collaboration you won’t find in Excel. For example, you can give team members access to edit the gantt chart so they can track task completion as the project progresses.

Best PowerPoint gantt chart template

This free PowerPoint gantt chart template includes 4 slides with editable graphics and a quick tutorial. It’s a great option if all you’re looking to do is present a project plan.

Best collaborative gantt chart template


Okay, we’re a bit biased here. The previous gantt chart templates are relatively more time-consuming and are manually updated.

On the flip side, TeamGantt is a full-blown project management tool that takes just 3 minutes of your time to set up. You can:

  • Create a gantt chart template in a fraction of the time
  • Collaborate with team members and track their tasks
  • Download PDF gantt charts to share with your clients and internal team

TeamGantt is so easy to use you can start creating your first free gantt chart and a have plan ready to share with your team and clients in minutes.
