How to put dates in a chart in case you have omitted

This tutorial article will show you how to edit your chart to include an end date in your chart, without having to create it from scratch.

Once again, we will use our basic example, which is on: https://smartgantt.com/creating-basic-example/

Click on “Gantt Chart Options” the button which is located on left-hand side menu

date1.1

As you can see, a menu appears. Choose the option: “Edit Settings”

date1.2

This will take us back to our initial process to create the chart. Can you see what’s wrong with the image below?

date1.3

There is no end date set, this might be a reason of causing problems. We need to fix it by selecting the proper date field of our app, in that way this date field will be mapped to our chart. Just click on the right button of the box

date1.4

We finally put a value to map, it’s called “End Date”. There is one more thing to do. The Gantt Title has been erased, so we need to write it again.

Now just click on the “Next” button which is on the bottom.

Then you should click to “Next” to the following pages until you see the “Generate Gantt Chart” option. Last click on “Generate Gantt Chart” to see your new corrected chart.
