  1. Gantt chart view

    I want to be able to make tasks dependent on other tasks, and see them in a Gantt chart view, similar to TeamGantt.com.

        • Dashboard showing tasks in timeline/calendar view (like a gantt chart).

          I would like to see a dashboard showing tasks in chronological order that populates as I add tasks. I would like to see this in a calendar/timeline view.

          I would also like to be able to sort tasks within a bucket by chronological or reverse chronological order.

            • Sort by Colored tabs

              Can I sort by colored Tabs? If I was labeling them by priority?

              • Gantt view

                In the chart section, it would be great to have an overview of the whole project showing the gantt chart from beginning to end organized by buckets and then tasks.

                  • Add a kanban view to ease tracking and implement agile management

                    The idea is to get a kanban view, to get a more realistic tracking of tasks.

                      • GANTT

                        It would be great to add a gantt in planner. The information of "Previous task" is very important. With this information added, it woult be easy and usefull to create gantt chart with all information that a gantt can provide (for example priorise tasks on critical path).

                          • Facility to download a Excel report on task details

                            Facility to download a Excel report on task details in a Plan by assignee, by bucket. Currently no such facility is available hence no offline analysis can be done on the delays in completing the tasks.

                            • Totalling days/hours estimates for each category

                              For each task, add an estimate for the days or hours for that task. Then for each vertical, provide a sub-total of the days/hours recorded in each task.

                              Similar to what Trello does already.

                                    • Don't show completed tasks in Charts

                                      Why in the bar graph of member don't show completed tasks? If in the circular graph(chart) show all tasks, including completed tasks, why it wasn't done for the bar graph?

                                      My boss would be happy if it could be done!

                                        This seems to have been mentioned in many different ways as suggestions, this really is essential to use as a project management tool, any PM needs to be able to report & track stages of a project, not just tasks.

                                          I would like to see the status of all current, completed, in progress, and past due tasks by assigned without having to open each individual plan. The bar graphs are great. I would like to see the same thing in a 10,000 foot view for all projects in a single dashboard.
