Release Gantt with rows/phases that can be ordered for a better visual layout

A release gantt sorts its rows by phase date i.e., phases with earliest starting date are on top, and later start dates at the bottom. This makes visualization for a project with many different departmental tasks difficult and cumbersome. E.g., in a single release one may have a set of phases/tasks for the engineering group as well as for the marketing group, marcom group, etc. These at some point may be running in parallel and/or are synchronized to each other. With the current gantt behavior this means that they are all mixed up and a quick glance overview of the entire project and still be able to see individual departments is virtually impossible.


I would like to be able to move release phases/tasks up/down as I please i.e., a custom sorting format which each phase being colored by its assigned color in details.

    Update please. I've had to buy a 3rd party GANNT product as Aha GANNT is useless without the ability to insert or reorder workstreams etc,.

    If this were implemented I could better show gannt charts to stakeholders and execs right from AHA.  Without showing a tiered structure in a Gannt chart it is difficult for someone with little time to comprehend as the workflow in the gannt looks off.  If I can use this to show execs I can help justify the purchase of AHA.

    This is required. I'm not sure how a roadmap tool can be considered complete without the ability to move the product order around. Given they are created in a different order for example:

    Product X - Gen 2
    Product X - Gen 3
    Product X - Gen 1

    The roadmap created shows the same order and does not allow re-ordering to

    Product X - Gen 1
    Product X - Gen 2
    Product X - Gen 3


    The current roadmaps generated cannot be used in your tool.

    A big miss here.

    Is this still not implemented? Is there a way to work around it? Or should we just use SmartSheet for Gantts?

    Great news! We have a feature actively in development that will allow for this. I do not have a timeline that I can share yet but it is in progress.

    @austin (or other Aha Admin)... Will this also allow custom sorting/ordering of the releases themselves?

    Yes, the plan is to allow manual ordering of releases, releases phases/milestones, and features.
