Monday Projects: Features

Project dashboards

As a manager, after creating tasks and assigning them to people working under you, tracking their progress is very important. The good thing is that lets you do that with interactive dashboards. These visually-appealing dashboards make it easy for task assignees to report on their progress and for managers to provide feedback where needed.

The insights you get from the dashboards will enable you to spot project bottlenecks and take quick action before they cause a problem.

Gantt Chart

A Gantt chart is a unique type of project management chart where horizontal lines indicate the amount of work done in certain time periods. It was named after Henry Gantt, a 19th-Century American mechanical engineer.

Monday Projects enable you to create Gantt charts in a few steps. It uses a drag-and-drop interface, so just need to drag and drop modules into their desired positions. Hovering your mouse over any task will show you its progress status.

You can also create dependencies for tasks on the Gantt chart, which means that a specific task can not start until a preceding task is completed.

Gantt charts make it easier to delegate resources for a project and monitor its progress. 

Workload view

Monday Projects offers a widget called Workload view, which is very useful for resource management. This widget shows all your team members and the work you've assigned to them; it lets you balance the workload and avoid allocating too much work to one person.


No platform can give you all the features you want, so you may need third-party integration to provide extra functionality. For example, you can link Monday Projects with Zoom for audio and video conferencing, Box for file management and storage, and Salesforce for customer relationship management.
