Description:

I have created summary tasks, phases and tasks. However, when I open the Gantt chart, all of the tasks are aligned without any hierarchical indentations. Why is this?

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a project with several tasks
  2. In Gantt, indent some of the tasks
  3. Go to Configure options
  4. Move the Task Name field so that is it NOT the first column in the layout  
  5. Check the Gantt

Expected Result : To see tasks indented.

Actual Result : All tasks line up without indentations.  There is no task hierarchy.

Solution:

Move the Task Name to always to be the first column in the Gantt layout or restore the configuration to the default layout.
