You can change the terminology and rename modules. To avoid confusion check the module icon which is unalterable.
The Gantt module is all you need to manage your project or portfolio. Use it to prepare and visualize your project schedule or roadmap, monitor and control the execution, and generate reports by aggregating your task data or using advanced export features.
The Gantt module includes four key elements:
Customizable task list (WBS) that presents almost any Jira or built-in fields as columns with aggregated data
Timeline with tasks and dependencies that visualizes your work items and includes auto-scheduling
Resources panel that shows your resources’ workload
Infobar that highlights the most important information related to your project, e.g. Overdue tasks, Critical path, Dependencies, and Milestones
Use the Gantt to show you project schedules or to visualize your product roadmap:

The table below lists the main features of the Gantt module:

|Column Views||Customise the task list to display available fields as columns. You can save your Column View and mark it as favorite.|
|Column configuration||Configure the columns the way you need. Configuration options depend on the type of field added to the view.|
|Manage Column Views||Add or remove columns within the task list. When you add or remove fields the current Column View is modified but will not be saved automatically.|
Add your favourite filters to the header and filter the list tasks to see only the items which you are interested in. There are two types of filters:
Use the search box to filter out unwanted information. Choose between two modes:
|Timeline zoom||Zoom in and out, move to the current date, or fit all your tasks on the timeline.|
Show additional elements on the timeline:
Indent and outdent your tasks manually or move them up and down the list. The manual structure might be in conflict with the active structure builders in which case a warning will be displayed.
|Deleting tasks||You can delete the tasks from the the list in which case the task will be also removed from the Host and External platforms (in case of connecting with other External Platforms such as Trello or other Jira instances).|
