Gantt Chart with Predecessor Links

How to create a Gantt chart that shows links between related tasks

If you build project schedules in Microsoft Project, you probably link tasks together to show dependencies between predecessor and successor tasks. OnePager Pro can show these dependencies on your Gantt chart in an easy-to-read format.

OnePager Pro imports your predecessor information straight from Microsoft Project, allowing you to build a Gantt chart that clearly shows the links between tasks. Download a 15-day free trial to see how it works. Here's how to get started:

  1. Open your Microsoft Project plan. In the example below, we have a few tasks that are linked together as shown in the Precessors column:

  2. To turn your tasks and predecessors into a Gantt chart, go to Project's Add-Ins tab and click the OnePager Pro button:

    Launch OnePager Pro to build a Gantt chart from Microsoft Project.

  3. Click NEW to build a new Gantt chart. When the import wizard appears, give your Gantt chart a name and choose how you would like to filter which tasks appear in the Gantt chart, and which don't. In this case, we have a small Microsoft Project plan, so we'll import all tasks into the Gantt chart:

  4. Click Create New Project View and you'll initially get a basic Gantt chart like this:

  5. To turn on dependencies, go to Home > Project View Properties > Task Links and check the box to Show Data-Driven Links:

    Import predecessors, successors, dependencies, and links from Microsoft Project.

  6. When you click OK, OnePager will import your predecessor information from Microsoft Project and will draw the dependency links on the Gantt chart:
