Modifying GANTT Charts inside Energy BI

Energy BI continues to Shock and Awe us all, month after month. Within the December launch of Energy BI Desktop, I noticed the GANTT chart and we had a use case to replace job dates and descriptions on venture plans for a shopper.


After coming to America 3 years in the past and studying DAX by means of Energy Pivot Professional’s wonderful intro to Tabular fashions, I met the founding father of Energy ON, Per Solli in Los Angeles in 2017. Energy ON’s toolkit opens up fully new alternative with their Energy BI Write-Again Options, and their customized visuals. It’s superior, it’s best to strive it. Energy On’s Toolkit is it what enabled the write-back on this weblog publish.


Our shopper wished the power to plan over time, and a GANTT Chart is a wonderful approach to visualize duties, add further information and filter Energy BI stories. The one downside, is that Energy BI is READ-ONLY. Nevertheless, Energy ON’s expertise makes ANYTHING WRITE-BACK.


After a few hours, I may retailer the information in a SQL Server and/or Tabular Server, and make the visible replace dynamically.


This report has two most important elements:

  1. The xViz GANTT Chart
  2. Energy ON’s Desk Editor

In Energy BI now turns into a robust planning instrument:

  • Filter and look at duties on any attribute within the report
  • Develop and Collapse the Duties
  • UPDATE Duties, Individuals and Dates.

On this case we expanded ‘Prototyping’ with one month.

The GANTT Chart Wizard is courtesy of xViz. You’ll find extra information on this website concerning the write-back applied sciences.
