Yes! That is part of what I'm talking about

From my personal experience with project management tools abused for writing, I'd say that it works quite well for single characters, but I always got the impression that a lot of different characters or unrelated (historical) events turn those nice Gantt charts into a mess.

Yeah... I do something similar with the long events. The problem is that it really only works nicely when separated into arcs. Otherwise all those events get mixed in with other stuff. Yet, having all of those separate arcs starts to get problematic, especially when dealing with multiple characters.
[Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's not possible to reorder arcs once they have been created, right?]
