Gantt charts are visual representations of tasks, time lines and task relationships based on information that's been entered into the system for a project as progress on the project occurs.
Summary Tasks: when your Summary Tasks are collapsed, the black bracket shows as an "umbrella"
Tasks with Actual Time: task bars with a black bar indicates the Actual hrs entered
Predecessor Relationships: task dependencies like a predecessor relationship appear with arrows to connect tasks...
Milestones: to indicate a milestone on the Chart, check the Milestone checkbox on the edit screen of a task
Today's Date: the current day appears as a green vertical line on the chart
Deadline Date: under Task edit > Advanced tab > enter a date in the Deadline Date field
