Step 4: The best way to create a new table is to start from an existing one. I want a table that is similar to the Entry table, so click on >Entry, then >Copy.

Step 5: Let’s name this table "My Table". We can see the fields (columns) that are included in the table under Field Name.

Step 10: In order to see the fields in the "My Table" table, we must associate it with a View. By clicking on Apply from this dialogue box, we will tie the Gantt Chart view to “My Table”.
