Your visualization dream team: Gantt and Waterfall

empower® for charts in PowerPoint streamlines creating and formatting charts, including Gantt and waterfall charts. A waterfall chart visualizes drivers for growth or reasons for cost savings as steps.  Gantt charts help with project planning and reporting, showing activities and milestones on a timeline. As a PowerPoint add-in, empower® integrates seamlessly with how you work.


If you’ve ever created a waterfall chart manually, you know how cumbersome it can be. But with empower® for charts in PowerPoint, you can create waterfall charts dead easy. You can even insert subtotals per data series or show multiple waterfalls in a single chart.


Manually creating Gantt charts for project plans and timelines in PowerPoint is a time-consuming headache. With empower®, you can create Gantt charts in minutes by point-and-click. Quickly add status, responsibilities, school holidays, and other elements that ensure comprehensive planning.

Define your timeline – whether it’s for a quick project or a multi-year roadmap.
Then add Rows, Tasks, Milestones, Datelines, Highlights, Delays, and Status Icons. 

Waterfall    Waterfall

Waterfalls visualize the steps that cause an increase or a reduction in something. You can let Waterfall Charts grow from left to right, or right to left. Both vertical and horizontal Waterfall Charts are also supported. 

Columns / Bars    Columns / Bars

Show multiple data series either as Stacked Columns and Bars or as Clustered Columns and Bars. Decide whether to show Sum Labels, Connector Lines, and Percentages, then format the Chart and add Arrows if you like.

Lines    Lines

Use a Line Graph to show the evolution of data series over time. Define the scale and date format on your x-axis. Smooth and format your Lines and decide if you want to interpolate gaps.

Mixed charts    Mixed charts

Combine Column or Bar and Line Graphs. And in case of different scaling, you can use two value axes to combine differently scaled data series into one chart.

Pie / Circle charts    Pie / Circle charts

Visualize the shares or pieces that add up to 100%. Easily show Absolute Numbers, Percentages and Labels in your chart.

100% / Area    100% / Area

Show 100% Charts either as columns or bars or create a 100% Area Chart to show how relationships evolve over time.

No limits – charts with Arrows, Breaks, and Links to Excel

empower® addresses some important PowerPoint limitations. Have you ever tried to point out key information in your chart, such as the absolute growth or a compound annual growth rate (CAGR)? What about inserting breaks to optically shorten breakaways? empower® for charts in PowerPoint makes those sorts of tasks simple. And you can flexibly link charts to Excel files.


With a few clicks, you can highlight the most important aspects of your data: add Sum Labels, Delta Arrows, Average Lines, Difference Arrows, or CAGRs to your chart. empower®  ensures that all labels are always current, perfectly positioned, and don’t overlap.

Breaks are particularly useful when differences between data points are hardly visible, e.g. due to breakaways. In empower® for PowerPoint charts, you can easily add breaks to your charts, automatically or manually, exactly where you want them.
