    We are using gantt charts (from fusion charts) already a couple of years and find it absolutely necessary that a milestone is not limited to just one day but has a duration between a start and an end date. From my experience from a lot of projects with customers this is a crucial feature. Another this is that the action groups should be visualized as a bracket to show a difference to a normal action. See sceen shot for example. We really would like to change from fusion charts to highcharts because we are already using the high charts library very succfesfully.

      Hi, Ralf.
      Nice to know you’re interested in going with Highcharts 🙂

      Milestones and tasks are two quite different elements of a Gantt chart. Milestones are by definition single points in time, but there is nothing in the way of having what you described: https://jsfiddle.net/larsac07/rh98v1f2/. However, there is currently an issue with using the same y-value on multiple points in a tree grid (we are after all still in alpha), resulting in milestones not being able to be rendered on top of tasks.

      I agree that action groups (parent tasks) should perhaps be visualized in a different way than leaf-tasks, but I’m not too sure about the bracket-design. We’ll look into this.

      Thanks for your feedback 🙂
