The "Gantt View" will allow you to easily visualize how your project is mapped out on a timeline. You can also see, and create, dependency relationships between your different work items.
The following work item types can be the topmost work item on the Gantt view: Epic, User Story, Task. Each work item type is color coded for easy reference:
- Epic - purple
- User Story - french rose
- Task - teal
- Sub-Task - blue
The dashed lines extending from the sides of a work item indicate a group of work items. For example, in the above screenshot the task "Send emails" has two sub-tasks (Gather attachments, and Create first draft).
You can create a dependency relationship between two different work items by clicking on the dots located directly to the left of right of a work item. The first dot that you click on will be the predecessor and the second dot that is clicked on will be the successor.
