Workaround Viewpath Gantt-Chart Error

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

As I have been asked this for several times: The Google Gantt-Gadget mentioned in the previous posting has a bug. It causes the following Error (Fehlermeldung):

Fehlermeldung (Error message): This gadget has no settings. Missing or malformed url parameter.

To get it to work (Solution to all your problems):
* add a column left of your table
* call header ID
* leave rest of fields blank
* mark table including ID column and headers
* Isert > Chart > Custom > URL = http://www.viewpath.net/Website/Modules/Gantt.aspx

@ JCS states on http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2008/10/recently-google-docs-team-started.html: “The bug that required a UniqueID field in the Settings area has been fixed.” - it does not seem to be fixed, but with this workaround it works fine.

Thanks to Wildscot for his comment on http://lifehacker.com/5070701/add-a-gantt-chart-to-your-google-spreadsheet for the hint!
