This is a web part built for use against default sharepoint task lists.

It uses dhtmlx gantt ( to render the tasks in a gantt view, and has full CRUD against the task list.

Some features:

  • Drag tasks to update dates
  • Set zoom to default Hours/Days/Months
  • Uses the search api for the people picker
  • New tasks and updated tasks sends email updates if there is an assigned user and if the checkbox is checked

Some work left:

  • The dhtmlx gantt JS uses a global variable (gantt) - only one web part per page.
  • Solution not 100% tested
  • The control is not 100% React, I did not have enough time to do so :(
