How to create and manage your Software Development Plan Template in the Gantt chart?

Manage resources and estimate project costs

Create your project

Software Development Plan Template consists of typical ready-made tasks. This template gives you a pre-defined structure of your event.

If you need to create your own project or haven’t found your ideal template, create it in GanttPRO. You only need a few minutes to create the first chart in the tool.

Add tasks, create groups of tasks

Create tasks, subtasks, and sibling tasks, defining start and end dates for them and making your Gantt chart look as you need. Make a hierarchy of your assignments and manage multiple projects within the same timeline and template.

Add milestones and dependencies

Besides tasks, a Gantt chart timeline includes milestones – significant events that show how your project is developing. Create them where needed and be sure you are moving towards your goals.

Track progress

Technology roadmaps have milestones. These are major events that demonstrate how your project is progressing.

You can easily add these key points to be sure about the proper course of your roadmap.
