Gantt, Calendar, and Datasheet View in SharePoint


Besides the Standard view in SharePoint, following are the other view types –

Gantt view

This view allows you get a graphical representation of different tasks and the way they are progressing. You can know how a project/task is evolving besides identifying the bottlenecks in the way.

This view type can be used on any list/library type provided date-based information is available to reference. For several small teams, this view becomes the perfect solution for managing as well as reporting a project.

Gantt view is quite popular with project managers who want to track effectively how all their tasks are evolving.


Calendar view

It allows you to create following views for your data –

  • Daily
  • Weekly
  • Monthly

A Calendar view can be created on any list/library provided a date range is available for referencing the start and final data points.


Datasheet view

It allows you get a spreadsheet-like systematic view of your overall data that’s very similar to that in an Excel spreadsheet. The Datasheet view proves particularly useful at times when customization of multiple data columns is needed.
