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!

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!
agree - need this in planner not a separate tool

My company won't purchase the license for Project so I have to try to use excel. It ain't great. Would love the feature in Planner.

I can't believe my eyes. So in order to the absolutly clear question about Planner getting a Gantt view, we are suggested to use Project? New Project is a completly different, underspecced and disintegrated product. You can't sync Project tasks to Planner / To-Do. Planner need two things - a list view (which is there with the Teams Task app at least), and completly new Schedule, as the recent one is completly useless and I wonder, how it ever could get via a QA. Make it just simple timeline view with the zoom function, or scrap it altogether. New Project can't compare to Planner tasks yet - no chat, no labels, no mobile app to both Project & Roadmaps, custom fields implemented in a hybrid way, etc.
Let's be honest, planner should be project p1, and project p1 should be project p2. just add dependencies and gantt, bam! this would be the perfect tool for me right now.

Based on all of the other features of Planner, having a Gantt chart view only makes common sense. The whole idea is to make tracking plans simple and a Gantt chart is the simplest visual way to do this, especially since the calendar view in planner is limited in how many items it can show. Please reconsider adding this view.
Sylvain Chopard commented
Paying for the timeline/gantt chart feature alone with a licensed Project app is definitely not the answer the user community was waiting for.
For those looking for a workaround you can use Sharepoint task lists that include a timeline and Gantt chart view. You would however loose planner specific features (bucket view...). To get both in a single place you may be able to sync your planner tasks with a Sharepoint task list using power automate. You'd then be able to display your tasks from planner and the Gantt chart from Sharepoint in a common space in Sharepoint.
I agree with the other comments that this functionality would be extremely helpful for a better project overview. Using MS Project is not the solution! Instead, the lack of this functionality leads to users switching to other products like "Smartsheet". Surely this can't be in the spirit of Microsoft?!
After reading few comments and response, I don't think Gantt chart will be available in Planner. The solution is : get license for Project. Lol.

I assume that MS is refusing to add a gantt chart view in order to steer users toward the purchase of additional licensing for Project.
However I have project and still want a gantt chart view in planner - maybe just enable it for those that are already paying for the project licensing to protect that revenue stream. Please. :)

this is amazing that such a small feature cannot be achieved : a view mode in gantt rather than in calendar (completely useless to see tasks in calendar in my opinion)
so many concurrent products (ex. teamwork) can do it out-of-the-box !
steven dh commented
here too a Gantt chart would be necessary.
If not we have to look elsewhere.
So here we are in 2021 and progress on this is glacial to say the least!
Signposting to a massively complex additional subscription product is NOT a solution. All we ask is a simple GANNT view along side day/week/month in the calendar. If it is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN please have the decency to come out and say it so we can all move on.
So come on Microsoft, show us Planner isn't going to be a legacy product discarded in to the pit of doom!
Dear MS Team, Would you care to answer and give us an update on WHEN will we be able to have tasks organized in a GANTT CHART in PLANNER?
