  1. Hello,
    Thank you for the template – a great starting point.
    – Should the gantt chart automatically populate with the tasks and their duration?
    – Should the timeline automatically update with regards to the start/end dates of the project?
    If so, I cannot get it work on Excel 2007, running on PC.


    1. Alex,

      Thanks for the comments. Yes – the chart should automatically adjust the colors based on the current date vs. the start date and pct complete. Unfortunately, due to the conditional formatting I am using, this feature only works in Excel 2010. I’m researching exactly how to get this to work on previous versions of Excel and will post an update once I’ve got that working.

      Thanks again!

    1. Briana,

      Thank you so much for the kind words! Survey-time 🙂

      On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being extremely likely, 1 being not likely at all) how likely would you be to refer a friend or colleague to this template?

      Thanks again and have a great weekend.

  3. Hello Mike, I’m really interested in this template you’ve created, but I can’t download it, I get a 404 page. I’m a new guy in web development and I totally agree with your words about planning. Is there any other way I can download your template? Thank you in advance!
