Simple way to create Gantt chart for Azure Devops through power BI

usually we use Gantt chart to track the project progress, take the picture blew for example, the dark part means completed, the light part means waiting for being done.

To reach this result, there are two solutions. The steps in azure devops are same for both solutions.

  • Add start date and end date for each tasks. The Admin can change the layout to make these two fields visible on edit page, but I can only change them in backlogs
  • Add Efforts information: estimate time, already done and left hours. The picture blow shows I have done 80% ‘s workload.
  • Create a view for listing all user stories and tasks. ( one time effort for extracting the data)

Power BI steps:
