Gantt 2.2.3 - Overlapping events



I have been struggling to find a way to visualize overlapping events on separate timelines in the Gantt chart. In my case I have 5 categories and one category can have multiple simultaneous events. I would think I need somekind of a dynamic subcategory that gets values depending on how many simultanoues events occur. 


Do you have any suggestion on how to solve this problem?

I think I'm trying to achieve a similar thing to @OskariNi but the link above kindly provided by @V-lianl-msft does not do the trick.


As per the mock-up below, if tasks overlap within the same "Dev" group I want to show them on separate lines as in "Dev 1". However if a later task does not overlap with an earlier task then it should display on the highest available row e.g. task 3 shows on row 1 because it does not overlap with task 1.


There will be other cases where this is no overlap as per Dev 2 and there is potential for 3/4/5+ tasks to overlap and should all be shown on separate lines.



Was this question ever answered?

Here as sample of the data. Eg. Task 10 and 11 are overlapping. In this case I would need for example subcategories 1 and 2 for these tasks respectively.
