  • Those items are not stored in the specific "file", they are made available when you install MS Project.. You can just deal with the graphical indicator and bar style available in MS Project. 

    Hope this helps,

  • As far as I know you cannot import new items.

    For the bar style, what is your need? It can be configured and formatted in many different ways so you choose find what you need.

    For the graphical indicator, the workaround would be to create a custom report, in Excel for example.

    I figured out how to set up the standard tools.

    But I wanted for example to do so

    But if this can not be done, then I will work with standard tools

  • The only thing you could do is to insert a drawing and attach it to a task id.

    Other than that you'll have to use the standard feature.

    Many thanks.
    It seems that it works.

    1. Check that I did it right?

    2. The disadvantage.
     When the task is minimized, the image remains.
    Is it possible that the image disappears?

    3. Is it possible to change the "graphic indicators"

  • (1) I am glad it worked.

    (2) It might be a problem related to the version of the product. It is supposed to hide the images when you collapse the task list. Try this: right-click on an empty point in the graph part, select Layout and uncheck Show drawings.

    (3) No. It is not customizable. Pls try this website to let the product team know that you wish to see this feature in future versions https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com

    (4) It was a tip that I published on my tips page. Attaching pictures to the bars is a common knowledge. I designed the image by using a simple graphic design application. Also see the following pages:

    Thank you for the feedback.

    Tried to do the same thing in MS Project 2013.
    Does not work.
    If I uncheck the Show drawings box, then all the drawings in the gantt chart are hidden.
    But I need to hide only one task.
    Bad.
    It's a pity.
    I will still work this way


    If you have new ideas on this issue, I will be grateful if you share.

    You recommend this link https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com
    But this is the "Microsoft Teams" page.

    I can publish my question on this site?

    Or am I doing something wrong?

  • You're correct. This should be the link for the MS Project User Voice: https://microsoftproject.uservoice.com/. Sorry for that mistake. 

    By the way, please consider voting for my suggestion while you are visiting the website:
