Navigate the Gantt

The navigation is common to all the Gantts in N-OC Desktop.

Load period

You need to click the Load button to get data and predefine the Period that should open every time you login in UserPreference (in Web) GanttDefaultZoom. Default is 15 days before and after the current day. Options are day, week, month, and year.

To change the period, you can use the calendar function. Write your dates in the input field.

A quick way to change the period is to use the Shortcodes. Enter the letter combination in the date field and tab to what you need then click the Load button.

Date ruler

The dates for the loaded period are displayed on the upper row. The lower row shows your zoomed period in the loaded period. 

Zoom in or out

When you point outside the lined area in the zoomed period, you will see the double arrows symbol. Dragging the double arrows zooms in or out.

Move zoomed period

When you point inside the lined area, you will see this  symbol:

Hold the left mouse button and move right/left to move the zoomed period.

Zoom to one day

Double-click a date and the Gantt will zooms into one day. On your keyboard, use Ctrl Alt arrow left or right to zoom out from the highlighted period. You can use the minus and plus sign on the top right side to zoom out and in.

Note: Weekend or any other special dates, such as national holidays, may be displayed in another color. 

Windows of the Roster Gantt

The Roster Gantt is split in two windows.

Depending on the selections, it can be the flight leg in the upper window, but always crew in the lower window. The size can be adjusted by pointing on the separator line, when you see the following symbol:


The size of the windows when loading is controlled by the UserPreference parameter (setup in Web) or “The eye”:

Floating Window

When you right-click a tab, you have the option to let the window float.



Click the Float list item and the window goes into Float mode.


When you click and hold the button, you will see this symbol:

It allows you to dock the window in the Top, Bottom, Left, Right or Center part of the screen.

To end the Float mode, click the Dock as Tabbed Document list item and the window goes back to the default window.


Open multiple Gantts

You can open as many Gantts as you want.

If you want two roster periods with different periods, select the Rosters button or Ctrl+alt+r on your keyboard. A second window opens.
