If you have ever participated in Software Development Life Cycle or Project Management, you know how helpful Gantt charts can be. They allow you to easily illustrate the project schedule and sum up different stages and timeline of a project in a single view. Software like MS Project let you create Gantt charts but can be too time consuming and complex. Tom’s Planner is a web-based alternative that lets you create Gantt charts easily without requiring much effort or resources.
Tom’s Planner not only provides you a super easy Drag and Drop interface, but also gives you helpful instructions and tips to create an efficient Gantt chart.

You can save your schedules, open existing ones, print them, export them as image or even export them to MS Project. The tool also has a number of templates that you can refer to as an example, or use as a starting point for your chart.
