With version 6.1 of the Visual Scheduling Widget Standard Edition (short: VSW SE) we released some enhancements and improvements that have been requested by our customers for some time but unfortunately did not find their way into the major release 6.0.
With version 6.0 of the Visual Scheduling Widget Standard Edition (VSW SE for short), we are achieving a new level of user experience. In particular, the new grouping mechanism offers new possibilities for structuring Gantt data and will help users keep track of their data.
This blog post covers the options you have to structure your Gantt data in the Visual Scheduling Widget (VSW for short). We will discuss the two mechanisms – building hierarchies and grouping – that VSW offers for this task.
This release of our Visual Scheduling Widget (VSW SE) is also about how you can get more visual design options for a Gantt chart. For example, you can now freely design the dateline grids, create patterns for your bars, and many other small things to make your Gantt chart more user-friendly and meaningful. Read here what new features version 5.3 provides and how you can use them.
Those of you who follow our blogs about new features in our Visual Scheduling Widget (VSW) might wonder, why they now read about version 5.2 of the VSW, although we highlighted the new features of version 5.0 in our last blog post :-) The secret behind the big step from version 5.0 to version 5.2 is, that we published an internal release 5.1, with only some minor, internal adaptions. Now with the release of version 5.2 of the VSW we are happy to come up with interesting innovations for you again. So, let’s have a look at all the great new features.
As we noted earlier this year, the pace of our developments has not slowed down despite the COVID19 pandemic. On the contrary, our entire team at NETRONIC has now learned to work even more efficiently through the intensive use of tools such as Microsoft Teams or Azure DevOps, for example, and through their close networking with each other, thus further increasing productivity. So, it is not surprising that we can now already publish another new major release of the Visual Scheduling Widget (VSW). Let yourself be excited by the innovations.
Activities in the Visual Scheduling Widget are used to represent things like jobs, tasks, operations, etc. of the real world to a Gantt chart. All of these activities can have dependencies between each other, in the way that one activity cannot start until another activity is finished. In the following you will learn how to visualize these relations between activities in the Visual Scheduling Widget.
