If you don’t want your project to Autosave, no problem just leave the feature turned off.

Task Colors:
Want to better organize your tasks and Gantt charts? Now you can, with color! Gantter has added another great feature – the ability to customize colors for schedule tasks and Gantt chart bars. All you have to do is go to the project task properties page, and select the new “Color” tab. From there you can set the color of your task, the Gantt chart bar, and also the make your task text bold or italics.

Make a copy:
You now have the ability to “make a copy” of the current project schedule. Right in the project drop down menu you will find the “make a copy” option. As the default, the copy will be made in the same place you opened the project from whether it be Gantter Cloud or Google Drive™. You will also have the option to copy over any shared settings and rename the copy project to anything you would like.

Gantter Extensions:
Developers make some extensions for Gantter! With our new web API we easily allow you to create or use “private” and “public” extensions for Gantter. Via the API, Gantter will securely pass user, project, and task information to your extension so you can create any custom Gantter feature or report you can imagine.

Do you find receiving every project update notification distracting? You now have the ability to turn off notifications! Next time you receive a project update notification email simply click the “unsubscribe” link on the bottom of the page and you will stop receiving notifications from that project.
