Gantt view - doesn't show a bar when working with dates and doesn't allow for two dates be seen in one item row

I plan and manage projects, so I’m trying to use Monday for project planning and management.
I want to see a gantt of my project.
I plan most of my projects using the date columns not timeline, because timeline cannot be either automated or updated and needs manual updates which is not practical project management.
So I plan with due date and start date, end date, expected date etc’ etc’.
But the problem is when I look at the gantt I cannot see a bar using a date column, I can only choose one time column,
I want to have MS PRoject experience.

hi @aminster , Alex

There is a little app that converts 2 dates to a timeline and visa versa. It can be found here monday.com: Apps Marketplace

Thanks great feedback I’ll try it out

Hi unfortunately doesn’t allow for an easy gant view over time with links to tasks
