Can I set marks in a gantt chart?

Posted by espen on January 22, 2001 12:33 PM

I have a ganttchart that shows when employees work. Can I set marks at given places, for example at 8:30 to 9:40, and 11:15 to 12:20?

I would be thankful if someone had any inputs and suggestions

Check out
for some techniques to highlight certain activities
in a Gantt chart. The first example (the easiest)
might be what you want--you could set up 5 ranges
with the special times in ranges 2 and 4, with
some spreadsheet magic to separate a worker's
day into the appropriate ranges.

Hope this helps.
