Critical Path

FaviconProfessional Edition users can now display Critical Path in a Project, both visually on the Gantt chart as well as a column option in the List View.

The critical path is the series of tasks (or a single task) which dictates the calculated start date or finish date of the project. If a single task is late on the critical path, the end date of the entire project will also be late.

The critical path can change from one series of tasks to another as you progress through the schedule. It can change as critical tasks are completed or as other series of tasks are delayed.

Critical Path

From within the project, select the "Advanced" menu and choose "Show Critical Path".

By default, it will show the tasks that cannot slip at all or the project end date will slip. Critical path tasks are shown in orange. The completed portion of those tasks remains shown in black. Non-critical tasks remain blue.

We hope you enjoy this new feature of Viewpath. Please do not hesitate to contacts us with any questions or comments. You can open a ticket with our Support Desk at Check out our Knowledge Base too!
