Elegantt is a Gantt chart for Trello through a Chrome extension. A Gantt schedule chart is automatically generated using project information that is already inside Trello boards. It enhances the popular project management software by providing the big picture and information at a glance that a Gantt chart is capable of. Users can easily see from the chart what tasks are on schedule, what are late and what are early. A similar app we found that may compete with Elegantt is Bridge24.com
Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Automatic Gantt chart creation – Elegantt Gantt schedule chart for Trello is very easy to use. Users using Chrome web browser have to only install the Chrome extension and log in with Trello to approve the app permission. It coexists with the existing boards, members and labels.

It has the same look and feel and all data securely stays with Trello.
- Customizable, Integration-ready – The collaborative scheduling tool creates a Gantt schedule chart with default values for quick and automatic chart generation, but manual editing for changes at any time is also possible. By choosing only the cards or lists users need to see, they can view a Gantt chart that leverages their workflows and displays one or more milestones at a time.

Some of their Clients
No information is available.
Michael Pryor, CEO of Trello, stated that if their own designers were going to add a Gantt chart feature in their software, it would look exactly like Elegantt.
Trello and other simple project management and productivity apps focus on ease of use so that customers can worry less about learning how to use their software and concentrate more on getting work done. Elegantt collaborative scheduling tool fills in the gap by providing an important Gantt chart view but also takes away the complication of generating one with its automatic creation, with options for manual editing. Although still a work in progress, project teams now have the option to continue using their existing apps and still see the bigger picture while allowing project managers to monitor and stay on schedule. The public roadmap displayed in their board shows the issues and features that have been done, in progress and upcoming.
