    Question Visio: overview of jobs/tasks by hour: how to do this?

    I am working with Visio (version 2003) since yesterday.

    However I would like to make an overview of different automated tasks, their scheduling and to visualize the dependency between them.

    These automated tasks (around 10) are/should be scheduled within a timeframe of +/- 12 hours.

    I tried to do this with a Gantt chart/diagram but the start and finish definition of the tasks is on day level. I am looking for this on hour level in order to make a decent overview.

    Can someone tell me how I can do this with a Gantt diagram or whether or not I should do it another way?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    It's been quite some time since I've used Visio 2003 so I can't tell you if my comments apply to 2003 or just later versions. In 2007 and 2010 versions, you can set the duration units in the Gantt Chart Options dialog that apears when you open a Gantt Chart template or drop a Gantt Chart Frame shape on the page. It's under Duration Options in that dialog.

    Thanks for your answer, but...

    the key question is still not answered. I will make myself somewhat more clear.
    This might help to understand what I need exactly.
    Currently I have a Gantt chart with a display of tasks in the rows.
    Each task has a start and a finish date.
    All the tasks should be performed in two days. Hence it is very important to be able to set a start time (in hours) and a finish time also in hours.

    AS IS (currently):
    Task 1
    Start 06/01/2012
    Finish 06/01/2012
    Duration 1 hour

    Result: i get 1 hour displayed starting from the start of my working day

    TO BE (required):
    Task 1
    Start 06/01/2012 10pm
    Finish 06/01/2012 11pm
    Duration 1 hour

    Result: I get 1 hour displayed for this task from 10pm to 11pm.

    I work with Visio 2003 but I can get an update to Visio 2010. So, if this version is required for the solution to this problem, I can do this.

    Thanks a lot for your answer!
