VisiLean Gantt View

Visilean’s Gantt view is one of the most popular and simplified ways of showing activities (tasks or events) against time because of its uniqueness of visualising work status through colours. This view is developed in conjunction with the demands of construction managers, capturing what they want to see in the traditional Gantt. It’s an answer […]

The new “retain view” functionality is a major productivity improvement that helps keep the user’s session in memory for each system component including the planning and execution views and the BIM model. Now switching between major views such as Gantt, Scheduler and 3D is much easier and hassle free as it retains those views and […]
