I have worked out how to add an ICON or a Tag to a task . For example it is a "RAG Status" with three icons for red amber and green. Now what i wan to do is add this as a column in the Gantt chart display. This way for each task i will have the dates, the resources, the % complete and the RAG Status. Can anyone help. This is basically how do I add a column to the gantt chart image. Thanks

Hello Denis

There is currently no feature for displaying topic icons in the Gantt chart, but you can achieve something similar with the topic fill colour, which is reflected in the chart. Topic fill colours can be given names and indexed in the Index pane just like icons.

However bear in mind that if you have the option enabled in MindManager's calendar options, MindManager can automatically apply RAG fill colours to topics based on task status. Past-due tasks will be shown in red, at-risk in yellow and on-schedule as green. If this option is enabled, then MindManager will overwrite any user-assigned fill colours. To configure this, click on the "Calendar and display options..." link in the Task pane.

Nick. Thank you very much. It does sound like topicfill will work. I will have a look. I a tually don't want the status to be automatic.I want to use it to hold a decision that my team leads make. I want their overall judgement to decide the status. I will have a look but topic fill sounds good. Thanks again for your speedy and helpful response. Denis
