Change default view states of columns, timeline and features when Gantt chart is loaded

If you need to present a consistent Gantt chart view for different stakeholders, simply configure the default view. It lets you retain the columns & filters, Gantt features, and timeline displayed on the Confluence page.

Default view setting is only applicable to view mode. Once you open the Gantt chart editor, you’ll see the restored state from the last saved view.

How to set the default view state of columns and features

  1. Open the Gantt chart editor and open the configuration panel

  2. Select Default View tab

  3. Update the setting and save your Gantt chart

If you want to restore the view state in the view mode to the same as the edit mode, check “Restore the state at saving in the view mode“ option.
