Gantt chart view
I want to be able to make tasks dependent on other tasks, and see them in a Gantt chart view.
We recently announced and rolled out the new Microsoft Project, which was designed specifically to help teams of all sizes 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.
The new Microsoft Project has been redesigned. You can see your tasks on a Gantt chart (“Timeline”) view, a Board view (similar to Planner’s), and a Grid view, both requested from many of our Planner users. I encourage you to look at the links below and the attached GIF for a sneak peak.
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 to see if it’s right for you!
The Project and Planner team

Soon we are going to stop using Planner and switch to another solution, simply because of the reason Microsoft ignoring users request to provide a simple gantt chart in PLANNER. And no, we won't be switching to MS project.

When is this feature expectet to be mad for planer not project
A lot of users are asking for this
We need Gantt view in Planner. MS Project is used by schedulers yet it's not for all users and they would make a mess of our .mpp files. Teams is where we collaborate with all users and we need the Gantt view in Planner now. Instead we're using Excel with Gantt boxes. Looks silly and it's single user.
I will never understand how Microsoft will see a request made in 2016 and completely ignore it. We do not need or want MS Project. We've already invested heavily into Planner. How can every other plan/task management app have a Gantt Chart and Planner not? Absurd.
I have lost count of how many times we in IT have been asked for a simple Gantt chart view in PLANNER. Not a whole new subscription - we want it inside the one we ALREADY have rolled out. It is a basic, fundamental view of any planning related app, one would think. And this despicable disregard for userVoice, by Microsoft, is reiterating the already pervasive narrative that giant corporations really don't need to care one hoot what their users actually want - it's disgusting. Gantt view in Planner should be included in Planner, end of story.
It's asinine to make consumers pay (not an insignificant amount) for an ENTIRE different program when Planner would fit all needs if you just added Gantt view and included the ability to make sub-tasks. Stop watering down solutions by creating 16 different products that essentially do the same thing.

Please integrate a Gantt view in Planner and To do app. As it is now integrated in Teams it would make everyones lives much easier in this pandemic. I want my whole team to be able to view it and there is no need for all of us to have Project just for this one function. Come on Microsoft, get your act together.
Gantt view shoulb ba available in planner as in Trello (with add-on) when we don't need something as sophisticated as Project.
Gantt is a common visual task-planning view. It should be available in planner! I don't want to pay extra only for a view.
So why would you use planner over Project? It is free, but it is also useless, and you alienate users over ONE basic feature, thanks. Bye.
I could not agree more with the comments from other customers, we need the Gantt view in Planner and not in another product (MS Project). Microsoft sadly does not listen to our requests or concerns; over 5 years of petitions and nothing.
Wrike.com can manage this, why can't MS? should not be complex for a company that can produce MS Project, yet cannot develop a Gantt view from something that has the data already provided!

It was not so long ago that I wanted to earn money, but I couldn't and couldn't. And then I came across a casino where I really won a good sum of money. I didn't even do anything, I just put money into the account and pressed the button and I made a "big win". If you want to make money like me, this casino https://casinosonline-real-money.com/
JUST TO HIGHLIGHT - IF YOU CLAIM TO BE CONCERNED WITH AND A COMPANY THAT RESPONDS TO CUSTOMER NEEDS, THIS HAS BEEN THE TOP REQUEST BY YOUR CUSTOMERS SINCE 2016.
Clearly Microsoft is telling us they simply don't care about what we need.
Dear MS, you should listen to this suggestion and do the development, right now!!
It makes absolutely no sense - MS Project (in Teams) now has the gannt chart view, but the tasks don't link to the planner tasks....so now both Tasks/Planner and Project are effectively crippled...not too mention that for managers, there's no way of viewing all the tasks for your staff across all the Teams you have,

Why did you removed it from SharePoint Modern sites and lists.
This is a pivotal function within the SharePoint environment and probably planner.
Not suitable for small organisations and NFPs to pay subscriptions for things that are used in a couple of sites.
Disgraceful you selling it only in Microsoft Project.
Need this in planner not a separate tool!
I was looking into if I should try to persuade my organisation to switch to planner and things were bright, but then I ran into this jarring lack of a feature. Our projects are way too simple for planner, but without a gantt view planner is just too weak :-/ Then we have to stick to excel.

Not adding a gantt view and dependencies seems like purposefull gimping the planner app because you want people to buy more products. When that other product does not seem to be done yet and there is no way to automatically convert projects that are allready underway that, then it is just bad value for the customers. Come on, make teams and planner the best it can be!
