Meet TeamGantt’s New Sidebar and Gantt Chart View

Laura LaPrad
June 7, 2019

TeamGantt’s sidebar and gantt chart both have a fresh new look! ✨ These changes were designed with 3 main goals in mind:

Here’s a quick tour of what’s new, with a sneak peek at what’s to come.

Sidebar update: Jump to top tools and projects in a single click

Quick links for key sections

Aside from a few style updates, the biggest change you’ll notice in your new sidebar is the addition of 3 quick link icons along the far left of your sidebar. Let’s take a closer look at each one.


Think of this quick link as the key to everything that’s specific to you. Clicking the purple Me icon opens and closes the main portion of your sidebar, where you can access your projects, daily tasks, time sheet, or custom views (coming soon). We cleaned this section up a bit by relocating any global links to the next 2 quick link icons.


This quick link makes staying on top of project communication a snap. Simply click the green chat bubble icon to go straight to your main Discussions page. If you see a little red dot in the bottom right of this icon, that means you’ve got an unread discussion to catch up on.


In the old sidebar, Workloads and Reports existed as 2 separate links in your sidebar. Now all the report-y things live together on a single Reports page you can get to quickly by clicking the blue graph icon.

Collapsing and expanding the sidebar

You’ve always been able to minimize the sidebar for a wider gantt chart view. But now you’ll have easy access to your 3 new quick links, even when your sidebar is closed.

Collapsing and expanding your sidebar is as easy as hovering over it. When you're not actively using it, the main section tucks away out of sight so you have more room to focus on project work.

Filter your project list by Favorites

If you’ve got lots of projects to keep up with, your sidebar can stretch on for days. With this update, you have the ability to filter your project list down to just your faves. Simply click the star icon to turn your Favorites filter on and off for a cleaner sidebar view.

Here’s an example of how your sidebar will look with and without the Favorites filter applied.

Gantt chart update: Scan your gantt chart more easily

We’re always looking for ways to make TeamGantt easier on the eyes, so your gantt chart got a recent refresher. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new:
