Apologies for abusing this board for my selfish needs.
I currently use Fantastical and it works great for my needs. I’m especially fond of its integration with the native Reminders, and the sidebar views showing summaries [i forget exactly what those views are called], AND the ios app is VERY nice too.
But man, I could REALLY use a gantt feature. I’m a trial lawyer and each calendar entry is often part of a more extensive scheduling order. Would really be handy to click in entry and see a gantt option to quickly display related entries re that client or matter.
I’ve searched quite a bit but haven’t found anything. Anyone got anything that’d marry into iCal or Fantastical? Something else?
With the major caveat that I haven’t used this software, it looks like you could manage Gantt-viewed schedules in this free app and publish an iCal you could add to Fantastical.
In the MS Project/MS Outlook world, this kind of sync is still a bit of an unsolved problem, with only a couple third party options that don’t make many users happy.
I like the Gantt-lite view of all day tasks in Fantastical enough for my needs, but I can see how nice it would be if they’d let you view that data in, say, 100 days in a horizontal row, instead of just a week at a time before wrapping to the next line in the month view.
Different platform, but Corel’s MindManager, on Windows, has a Gantt view, and nodes (tasks or events) can synchronize with Outlook. I don’t use MindManager on macOS, but it looks like the Mac version has the Gantt chart view. Not sure about the calendar integration, though.
