One of the things that I’ve seen that’s pretty restrictive in using the built in gantt chart is there is no way natively to select how the the system uses dependencies when building a gantt chart. There are many times we have a release date for an item and would like to schedule back dates using the release date as the point of reference without manually having to insert tons of dates.
Currently Monday only recognizes Finish to Start, which is an extremely basic form of schedule building. We should also have the option to have lead/lags built in to those schedules.
I understand that Monday mostly caters to agile methodologies, but when dealing with hard release dates combined with manufacturing we need to use a hybrid model, which requires some traditional project management tools.
I know there is third party apps for this, but they are expensive and will eat up all of the automations for the month easily. It really should be part of the core build.
