Timeline view to show schedule
A simple timeline view like SharePoint tasks to facilitate viewing the schedule
We recently announced and rolled out the new Microsoft Project, which was designed specifically to help teams collaborate on projects more efficiently and achieve more together. It was designed to be simple and powerful, so that anyone can get started quickly and take control of any project – regardless of its size – right away.
We’ve brought the Planner board view to the new Project! Along with this, you can see your tasks on a Timeline view, and a Grid view, both requested from many of our Planner users.
With this, we also rolled out a new subscription plan called “Project Plan 1” that allows you to start quickly and manage projects easily via the web browser.
Thanks everyone for your patience, I encourage you to check out the new Project, and even start a trial – see the attached GIF for a sneak peak!

This seems also related to the "Gantt chart view" but without dependencies and other details. I like the idea of a more simplistic Roadmap/Timeline view to be able to summarize progress and report to execs.
The donut is another great way to do it. Just make it so "the plan" is layered over top by "actual results" as the day goes by for reviewing.

Need a timeline view for planning and reporting. Using Projectplace and Smartsheets for this functionality.

I like the roadmap view offered by roadmunk

If the task due dates are entered in the group calendar (per existing uservoice request) this would at least in part be achieved.
