after installing the Gantt Chat plugin there is a custom field available called "Gantt Bar". From the field description I assume it presents the gantt bar from the gantt chart on my issue screen. If so, that would be very helpful for status tracking. However, the field seems not to work. I can´t enter a field value (actually the field isnt even shown in my edit mask). What do I have to do to mark that field work in the intended way?
PS.: We use the latest version of the plugin
That customfield has been introduced by Gantt-Chart v2.x to display a Gantt-Chart integrated within JIRA's Issue Navigator (search result). Based on the Atlassian changes (various views like detail view and list view), that functionality does no longer work: to indicate that, a "n.a" (not applicable) is displayed as column content. Instead, you have an additional project tab panel "Gantt-Chart" to display that information with a lot of user configurable look & feel.
Per issue, I recommend to put the customfields "planned start", "planned end", "baseline start", "baseline end" and "Gantt Options" on the edit- and view-screen. If you modify them, any Gantt chart will be displayed accordingly if you have enabled re-scheduling.
PS.: if you are located within Germany/Europe, we can have phone talk to clarify that or other questions shortly.
Jira may be a staple part of your workday, but your colleagues, customers, business partners or an auditor might need information presented in a different format, that is easy to access and read. And...
