We’re thrilled to announce that the new gantt chart for DayBack is now available as an in-app update. To add this view to your own copy of DayBack click “Account Settings” on the calendar’s settings tab and then click “Check for Updates”.
The gantt chart is a great way to see all the events for a single project (or a single resource) when those events span more than a few weeks. Here’s a quick video showing how DayBack can be filtered to show the gantt chart for a single project:
FileMaker Gantt Charts
We’ve chosen to call this the “horizon” view as we think it’s a great way to look ahead of you and see how your workload is shaping up. (Of course you can use the translation table in DayBack to call this anything you’d like.)
We also chose “horizon” as opposed to “gantt chart” to make clear this this is a lot simpler than most gantt charts.
Traditional gantt charts are fine if you’re building the next Ford Focus, but for simpler projects apps like Liquid Planner and Microsoft Project include a lot of stuff most folks don’t need–and so the software feels like a burden, projects don’t get updated, and things fall through the cracks.
A FileMaker gantt chart should be simpler, but let you can add complexity if you need it. The horizon view lets you see the relationships between events without lots of junk to slow you down. We may be adding some more traditional gantt features down the road–and we’ll be expanding the number of days the horizon can show–but we’ll be keeping this lean and easy to customize.

If you purchased DayBack outright (as opposed to a monthly or yearly subscription) you received a year of in-app updates with that purchase. If your updates are expiring soon you can now extend your updates for another year: extending in-app updates.
