eXpressTransit includes a very easy-to-use project management tool with the Projects screen. With this screen you can easily create Gantt charts that illustrate the start and finish dates of the individual project tasks, create dependencies between tasks, assign stakeholders to each task, add Outlook-like reminders to each task for notifications and set the percent-complete status of each task. Having a project planning tool in eXpressTransit allows anyone to review project and task statuses or setup their own projects to clearly define the tasks and expected completion dates.

Notice how the timeline across the top automatically adjusted from months to year and quarter:
Creating tasks and their dependencies is quick and easy and setting the details of each task is similar to creating appointments with the scheduler:
