Hourly Gantt chart Task Assignment Live!

Your gantt charts should be used to allocate resources hourly
TeamGantt now allows you to estimate how long it will take for a person or resource to complete a task. You can view the Availability tab to see how many hours each resource or person is working on a given day. This feature is useful but not for all projects. This feature can add complexity to your project and can also be used to detail your hourly estimating or resourcing.
You can enable or disable hourly estimation by going to: Menu > Project Settings > Allow Hours and selecting Yes or No.
You’ll find a drop-down menu with several options under the Availability tab. It defaults to the Number of Tasks per Day, but you can also choose Hours per Day. You can now see how many hours each person is working per day by selecting Hours Per Day. For example, Jason is given 2 hours and Meredith 4 hours respectively on the given dates.
You can filter availability by active projects or this project.
The task list now includes 2 columns. To see the estimated hours for each task, check the Estimated Hours option. To add an hourly estimate, click or tab into the Estimated Hours column of the task you wish to estimate and enter the required hours.
We also added a People Assigned column to make it easy to see task assignments. The People Assigned column is available regardless of whether you use hourly estimates.

Tip: While it might be tempting to try and see all 8s and 10s depending on how long your work day is, this will not be possible in most cases. These are estimates and will not be exact in the real world.
