Gantt Viewer - Sub-daily tasks

Question asked by Dave on Sep 18, 2013

So with Clarity I can only plan task start/end durations down to days....

Suppose I have three tasks, that all are in a dependant chain T1 -> T2 -> T3, all three tasks take a trivial amount of work, but Clarity only lets me have them all start and end on the same date but I can set dependencies between them OK to make T2 be dependant on T1 and T3 be dependant on T2....

Suppose I now want to visualise this "plan";

The Clarity Gantt and OWB can only draw something like in fig_a below I think?

How do I get something to draw a picture like in fig_b below ; where all tasks are on the same day - i.e. where the visualisation respects the dependency between tasks, possibly even respecting the sub-daily etc?

I assume I can NOT get this sort of view out of OWB (and I don't want to get it out of MSP but I would be somewhat interested if you could do it in MSP!) - what I suspect I am actually looking for is a recommendation of some other visualisation tool/fancy excel (or Clarity) plug-in/??? that would do this for me (without having to write something for myself in BusinessObjects!).

Any clues out there?
