The Gantt chart is used for showcasing timelines. It is a date/time-based chart that allows plotting tasks with their exact start and end date/time. Milestones can also be defined to assert how much of the project should be completed by when. Broadly, this chart looks like an extended version of the bar chart.The chart canvas is divided into a view pane and a data table. Tasks and their start and end date/time are listed in the view pane. Horizontal bars, representing tasks, are shown in the data table. The length of the bar represents the duration of the task. Arrows are used to connect tasks and star or a polygon is used to represent milestones.This chart can be used to show the timelines for the various phases in the construction of a new store.
