In Ganttic, Views are where you can create resource plans. Each View you add contains different user-selected presets - making it easier to control the amount of data you’re working with and how you prefer to do your resourcing. Discover how to add a new Custom View to start planning your way.
- All Owners, Admins and Users with Create and edit private Views rights can add Custom Views.
- All newly created Views are private by default and remain so unless made public or shared with selected users.
- Public Views are visible to everyone.
- Enabling Lock view settings for public Custom Views will make sure that no User is able to edit its settings (Title, Grouping, Sorting, Coloring, Filtering, Time Period, Visibility Settings).
- In addition to Custom Views, Single Project Views allow users to dive into Project specifics from different angles.
- Access Custom Views from the Custom View List. Owners and Admins can see listed all the account's Custom Views. Users can only see the ones that are public or shared with them or public Custom Views only, depending on the View permissions.

Sharing Custom Views
All Custom Views are private by default, but can be easily shared with other Users or even non-Users. There’s 2 options for sharing:
- Changing the Custom View’s permissions. Switch the View to public or choose selected Users who may access it. A simple copy-paste of the View’s URL makes for an easy sharing option amongst other Ganttic Users.
- Creating an Open Access URL. This generates a URL with an expiration date. Share the View with Users, non-Users, or Users who aren’t currently logged in.
