-ToDoList offers various views on your task data. You switch between these view using the tabs below the active task view. 
------+ToDoList offers various '​Views'​ on your task data. 
-  * **[[tree-view|Task Tree]]**\\ This view shows tasks in an indented tree structure, a set of nested hierarchical nodes which can be expanded and collapsedThis is where most of your time is spent, creating new tasks, updating their status, ​and logging time.\\ {{images:​screenshots:​tree-view.png}}+It is important to understand that these views are NOT independent mini-applications accessing different task attributesThey are just alternative representations ​of the same essential underlying task data with different ways of viewing ​and manipulating the same built-in attributes.
------+You can switch between these views using the tabs below the active task view, or by cycling through the views using '​[[view-menu|Menu Bar > View]] > Next Task View'.
-  * **[[list-view|List View]]**\\ This view is the same as the task tree but with all tasks displayed in a linear form and no indentation. It's useful for sorting tasks by name, ID, Parent ID dates, status, and by other fields. In the tree view, sorting will sort by fields _within_ a given task. The list view allows all tasks to be equal candidates for sorting. \\ {{images:screenshots:​list-view.png}}+The following Views are currently available:
------ +  * [[tree-view|Task Tree]] ​The default hierarchical view of your data 
- +  * [[list-view|List View]] ​Your data displayed as a '​flat'​ list (single-level-hierarchy) 
-  ​* **[[burndown-view|Burndown]]**\\ This view shows a graph to visually show how many tasks are open over a period of time. This helps project managers to assess load. The selected tasks can be filtered by any field to produce a view by category, tag, date, people, status, etc. \\ {{images:​screenshots:​burndown-view.png}} +  * [[burndown-view|Burndown]] ​- A graph of how the number of incomplete ​tasks varies ​over time 
- +  * [[calendar-view|Calendar]] ​- Your tasks represented on a calendar ​layout

Definitions can be found [[https://​​search?​q=gantt+chart+definition|here]]. ​The Gantt view allows the relationships to be viewed and modified.
