Frequently Asked Questions

Many of the questions you may have about Gantt Excel can be answered by FAQs.
If you don’t find the answer to your question through the FAQs, please contact us via the form below.

Do you use Excel’s Conditional Formatting in Gantt Chart Excel?

Do you use Excel’s Conditional Formatting in Gantt Chart Excel?

No, conditional formatting (CF) in Excel is buggy and using CF in Gantt Charts is a strict no no!
Conditional formatting is also known to have compatibility issues between different versions of Microsoft Excel.

We learned this the hard way when we used conditional formatting over two years ago just like all other Gantt chart excel templates and we noticed that CF rules weres duplicated unnecessarily and slowing down the Gantt chart calculations. This resulted in a bloated file and the gantt chart was a disaster of sorts.

So we used simple shapes as timeline bars in Gantt Chart Excel with automation driving the in and out points of the gantt chart timeline bars. This results in a lightweight file and works accurately as intended.

Gantt Chart Excel allows you to customize the timeline bars easily and create a project timeline to impress.

I’m using a Mac and I can’t see the Gantt Excel ribbon. How do I enable it?

I’m using a Mac and I can’t see the Gantt Excel ribbon. How do I enable it?

Gantt Excel Mac Ultimate is compatible with the latest version of Mac 2016. The latest version of Excel 2016 on Mac supports the Gantt Excel ribbon.

Excel 2016 v15.17 for Mac and below does not support custom ribbon menus. You will have to upgrade your Excel 2016 to the latest version.

Excel 2011 for Mac does not support custom ribbon menus. So we have created a main level menu for this version. You can also right-click anywhere in the file to access the menu.

Error while activating Gantt Chart Excel license?

Error while activating Gantt Chart Excel license?

If you get this error while activating your file…

Activation Error
The most typical reason is one or more firewall programs or proxy settings are blocking Gantt Excel access to the Internet.

There are two things you can do to resolve this.

  1. Copy the file to a machine that has complete access to the internet, activate it there, save the file and copy it back to the machine you want to use it on (You can use a USB stick to copy the file or just email it to yourself).
  2. Contact us via this page and we’ll activate it for you. We’ll endeavor to get back to you within a few hours, we are usually much quicker than that though.

This is an excellent product, very easy to use, easy to buy and great value for money in saved time. You do not need to be an excel expert to use it, the automation of entry does it all for you. I recently showed the website to clients to help with their project planning. They were very pleased and will be adopting it through the company. I needed to contact support to help with a query; their response was quick, efficient and very helpful. Excellent service and great product, I thoroughly recommend Gantt Excel.”

This saved a lot of time for me. Having to update a schedule in project, then copy to excel was very time consuming and didn’t allow real time changes in my meetings. Having this done in excel allows me to customize my schedule just like project while adding additional tabs for other information. I’ve received nothing but positive feedback from my pears. Well worth the investment and has paid for itself. ”

I am a new at using Gantt software. So I was very impressed with the speed and thoroughness of their customer service when I had basic questions on how to use the software. They were very thorough in their responses, which made it very easy for me to use. I have purchased similar software before but found them difficult to use and there was no customer service support at all. This is a great product, at a tremendous price, with service you can count on. I have recommended this product to numerous people in my field and will continue to do so.”
