Welcome to Vizzlo! In this 5 minute introduction we will show you the most important steps to get started. If you are using our desktop app, make sure to read our introduction to Vizzlo's Desktop app too. Vizzlo offers you a selection of +100 business charts and graphics; to find the chart you are looking for go to our portfolio at vizzlo.com/graphs.
At the end of this tutorial you will have created your first Gantt Chart, a visualization to help you planning and communicating a project's timeline:
Every chart comes with default data. There are multiple ways to add, delete or edit a chart's data. You can either click on one of the elements and change the data in the sidebar, or edit it in the `Spreadsheet`. Open the `Spreadsheet` then click on `Import data` to browse your local files or simply drag an Excel file or .csv file into the spreadsheet. Columns of your data must match the pattern, we take care of parsing dates and numbers for you. You can find the data used in the chart here.
After a right click, adding `Activities`, `Segments` or `Milestones` is also possible.
When you have imported the data, your Gantt Chart should look like this:
In the sidebar you can change a document theme, layout, properties and label and value formatting. For example, under `Layout settings` uncheck `Dependencies`, `Show progress (Harvey Balls)` and click on the eye button next to the `Column "responsible` to hide the respective elements and columns.
Click on the document title to edit it, in the sidebar set `Axis granularities` to `Week` and now we only need to tweak the document's theme for the final styling.
The overall look of a document can be edited by the settings in the theme editor, i.e. fonts, colors, line width etc. Click on the `Customize theme` button
We create a theme with three colors to distinguish the segments: `#FA9639`, `#FA5D7C`, and `#AA52DE`. As background color we use `#FDFDFD`, `Neutral background color` and `Accent color` are set to `#E0E0E0`.
We used Sintony as font type for title, heading, and content. Read Customize a theme for more info.
Editing an element is straightforward - select it with a click and start editing. Change the properties of an element in the sidebar. However, you can drag segments vertically, activities can be drag horizontally too.
If you are new to Vizzlo we added the final chart to your dashboard. It can also be downloaded here.
