Very often it's desirable to see a visualization of a project's timeline in a gantt chart. With our new charting features, this can quite easily be done.
For this example, I'm going to use only the most necessary fields. We have a Projects app with an image field for the gantt chart, and a Deliverables app which has:
There are a few ways to achieve our desired goal, but here I'll present what appears to be the simplest solution.
We'll need a manual flow in Projects to generate the gantt chart. This flow would:
Then we'd need another 2 flows in Deliverables app to trigger the chart flow above anytime a Deliverable is created, or the date range of a Deliverable is changed:
Now, anytime a Deliverable is added or has it's date range changed, a new Gantt chart will be placed in the Project item.
