Gantt chart is unusable due to the horizontal scroll which includes unwanted years


Your Gantt chart is unusable due to the horizontal scroll, because it shows all the unnecessary years!
I scroll left and I go to ex. 2004. I scroll right and I go to 2100 or even further.

The Gantt chart should be restricted to include ONLY the active projects’ years and nothing else!
Add a filter there! The horizontal scroll is counter-productive there in a very bad way!

Plus that sliders should be added so that we increase the viewing space of the Gantt chart without having to full-screen competely.

hi @HardcoreGR

Welcome to the community! Did you already find (and clicked) the “Auto Fit” in the Gantt chart?

No can you guide me and send me a screenshot?

Thank you.

Hi @HardcoreGR !

Here is a screenshot to help guide you!

Hope this helps!

The Autofit is irrelevant here! It just zooms the Gantt chart!
When I try to click the slider either left or right even for one millimetre, I will see years like 2010 and 2130 respectively!
What is the meaning in all this? We can’t even work.
Fix it! Add an option “Lock timeline only between active dates” or whatever, so that the Gantt chart does not go in the past and future. The scrolling is huge and the result is disappointing and counter-productive!


I’m having the same problem and I am going to add a dummy task with a duration matching the start and end I want to work with. This will make the autofit do something helpful at least dur my initial planning phase. Then I can delete the dummy afterwards

Agree that the horizontal scroll is way too sensitive. Can we please reduce the sensitivity or at least create this as an option

Has there been any resolution to this? Is there a way to freeze the view to only include the actual project timeline?

I am having the same issue. The Gantt chart is not usable if you have a longer chart that goes beyond the screen because the scrolling function jump too far forward or behind in years.

The horizontal scroll in the Gannt chart is way too sensitive and unworkable. With a mm a movement it blasts you forward a hundred years, forget about a few weeks. When using the autofit it squishes a 1 year project with approximately 30 tasks into one screen. I find the view, well squished and not too pleasant for viewing. I am really enjoying the rest of the product but the Gannt chart view really needs some overhauling.

Huge agree here. This is such a common and obvious UX concern! I was thinking about swapping to Monday for our Product Management, but this would make my life miserable.

Come on guys. Fix this. It’s such a glaring issue for a product that claims to be “more” than a Project Management OS when you can’t even get Project Management right.
