How can we improve Planner?

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.

        Agreed. I want to be able to use this with my teams, but find myself needing a separate Gantt chart--which inevitably leads to chaos. This is an absolute must!

        Planner without a Gantt chart is a severely hobbled offering. It is not worth the effort to enter and manage the data unless I can generate Gantt charts. Please add this feature. Please. Sooner rather than later.

        16 months, 1,400 votes and yet no timeline or Gantt chart feature. I'm honestly not surprised because it's Microsoft. I understand Microsoft is trying to protect cannibalization of other MS products like Project, but so often they obviously fail to see the competition outside their own product offerings. Considering that this is part of a paid service I expect better. This tool is useless in a team/engineering environment without additional features. There are better free options.

        It would be also great to have the gantt chart be sorted by assigned member project (buckets)

        The SharePoint Task List can be integrated with Project and can be viewed as a Gantt Chart. Why not allow Planner to be integrated with the Task List?

        For most users the Planner dashboard would be a consolidated view of all tasks they had across multiple projects.

        Wrike has this functionality and is a very rounded tool compared to Planner. MS need to increase the pace of development on Planner if it is to be adopted, organisations need a complete planning tool, not a cut down Trello.

        I have recently tried Apps4.Pro Planner Manager which offers Gantt view for tasks in Planner. Worked great and I can manage the tasks efficiently now.

        An enterprise planning tool needs Gantt functionality. I agree with Dustin that without it its just a simple planner. Honestly we were expecting more.

        The benefit of Gantt functionality, is to be able to present to C-suite execs who are likely NOT to adopt more agile methodologies. Adding this functionality will help in closing this very big gap because ultimately those execs are the decision makers.

        Todos queremos que esto este disponible, ojala y el equipo de desarrollo le ponga un poco mas de interes a este punto

        What is needed is something with a timeline to make the planning of the tasks/buckets visible.

        A Gantt View organized by User allows one to view too many commitments that may be unrealistic, and then switch Gantt organization by buckets or process.
