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
Add it to the planner! I need to make tasks dependent on other tasks.
Yes, we need gantt view in MS Planner too. This feature shifts it to a completely different level. MS Project for web don't have any comment field.
Gantt pls! Project = overkill
Add it to planner! I need to make tasks dependent on other tasks being finished. I have no desire to use Project and IT will not be spending the $$$ for it. That is not what everyone was asking for.
this is not what we wanted - please provide us with a gantt chart view !
WE NEED GANTT CHART VIEW IN PLANNER ! MS PROJECT IS TOO HEAVY AND WE DO NOT WANT TO MOVE TO NEW APP ! PLEASE IMPLEMENT OTHERWISE WE WILL MOVE TO A COMPETITOR. THANK YOU
You cant attach files to tasks. You cant comment or @ mention someone on a task. The new MS Project does not have even the basic of functions.
This is not what we wanted!
Project is still to heavy for the majority of tasks.
We need Gantt view for Planner!

We don't need all the features of Project! We just need Planner to have a Gantt chart view! Otherwise we just will end up exporting the data into excel....

Project for the web doesn't have the same capabilities like Planner. Microsoft deliver two tools which are you complete to use like professionals need it.
Can we also address the issue that it doesn't work on a Mac without 500 workarounds. Geez MS you would think by now you would get a clue on this stuff. Stop trying to nickel and dime us soon you will be in bed with Apple!
Totally agree with the majority of comments here - why do 80% of a job? I was excited about using planner with my team - now I have to make excuses/use an unnecessary additional exercise.
Peter Janes commented
It should be fairly simple to migrate the Gantt view from the "Classic" SharePoint Tasks to the Planner - better sooner than later
I couldn't agree more with all of the other comments on this thread. It would clearly be a simple implementation and to say something so basic is out of scope is annoying to say the least. It's not terribly difficult to export to excel and create my own chart (which is what I and I'm certain many others will do before purchasing MS Project), but having it built in would obviously be preferable. It's clear to everyone who searched this topic that it's not a development issue, but a misguided strategic attempt to upsell. It is a clear customer service misstep on the part of Microsoft that I hope they will rectify soon.
Seriously, you need to listen to the feedback and add Gantt/Roadmap feature to Planner. At the moment you leave me no choice than go with a competitor's product.
Low blow.. just put in planner man.
Put it in Planner and stop bait and switching customers.
We need a gantt chart view in planner as there is currently a schedule one.
Not to go through MS Project
That's really disappointing. Looks very much like a direct push to get sales of Project up, at the expense of a much simpler option. I guess that's the difference between an included add-on to Office 365 rather than a full on project management tool that is way to complex for lots of us occasional users. The only reason I started using Planner was because it was included. Looks like it's back to Trello for me :-(
