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 activity dates and descriptions on undertaking plans for a shopper.


After coming to America 3 years in the past and studying DAX via Energy Pivot Professional’s glorious 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 utterly new alternative with their Energy BI Write-Again Options, and their customized visuals. It’s superior, you must attempt it. Energy On’s Toolkit is it what enabled the write-back on this weblog submit.


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


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


This report has two primary elements:

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

In Energy BI now turns into a robust planning device:

  • Filter and look at duties on any attribute within the report
  • Broaden 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. Yow will discover extra information on this website concerning the write-back applied sciences.
