Gantt chart x-axis label on the top of the graph


I am using macro Chart from table, Gantt chart to do a roadmap where X-axis is the date. There are quite a lot of items but the x-axis label is showing at the bottom so I need to keep scrolling and it is hard to refer to the start and end date from the graph. Is there a way to show the dates (x-axis label) on the top?

Or an alternative option is by having a vertical line for each month, I want additionally some thicker line for each quarter.

Is there a way to achieve this?

Hi @Arica Chan ,

We can suggest trying the following workaround: set quarters as custom events.

Hope this makes your chart more easy-to-read.

Thank you! It is helpful.

Hi @Katerina Kovriga _Stiltsoft_ ,

Sorry there is one more question.

When I put the quarter dates like you did, my last one (23'Q1) cannot be shown fully on the graph, do you have any idea how to show it properly?

It's just the last date of the grid - you may use another one like End/1 May 2023 or something. Then your 23'Q1 will be visible.
