Looking for a little help creating a Gantt Chart? Use the Gantt Chart Wizard to end up with the chart you want.

Before you start, you’ll need to add the Gantt Chart Wizard to the Project ribbon.

  1. Click File > Options > Customize Ribbon.

  2. In the right column, click the tab you want to add the Gantt Chart Wizard to (for example, View), and then click New Group.

    Create a new group in the Project ribbon.

  3. To give your new group a name (for example, Wizards), click New Group (Custom), click Rename, type your new name, and then click OK.

  4. In the left column, click the arrow under Choose commands from, and then click Commands Not in the Ribbon.

    Choose a command that isn't in the ribbon.

  5. Page down in the left column, and then click Gantt Chart Wizard. Highlight the new group you created in step 2 (it’s in the right column), click Add, and then click OK.

    Add the Gantt Chart Wizard to your new Project ribbon group.

  6. Click the tab where you put the wizard (in this example, we used the View tab), and then click Gantt Chart Wizard. Follow the steps to create your new chart.
