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

been trying for couple of times to get back to planner just to see whether I could manage simple team tasks or simple product roadmaps. Nothing extensive. Lack of availability of a yearly, monthly schedule (simple gant) is just misserable.
In my company we have an option to order MS project, but after reading this decided not to do it and stick to my planning in excel. burn in **** MS planner product owner I will not share my money with you.

This is just a simple scheduler that doesn't need the complexities of Project. Please provide a Gantt chart view like you have in SharePoint.

Thanks admin for your update (Dec 2019) but this topic is about Planner, not MS Project, right?
We use Office365 but do not have Project license included.
I am diappointed that you can't use gannt and sub tasks in Planner (which is "just" kanban board) or Microsoft To Do or Miscrosoft List
Disappointed in MS commented
I am so disappointed that we don't get a Gantt chart view in Teams for business

Can MS Project flow directly to MS To-Do?
I know of two workplaces who were considering moving to Planner (Tasks or whatever it will eventually be called) but were frustrated with the obscurity on the roadmap, desktop app removal and, esp., no Gantt chart capability. Most work teams do NOT need the complexity of 'Project' and often cannot justify the cost. Microsoft, as so many others have stated in the comments, ADD the Gantt chart, please! As others have commented, other products have had this feature and look very good - but are not integrated with other products like MS Office. Many of us love MS products but a frustrated that the management do not see that annoying folks over what seems a small request can cause them loss of revenue and supportive client base. Kind regards, Ken
Signed up for this uservoice just to say this is dumb. We ask for the functionality, they promise it's in the works, and then roll it into another service that is not bundled with our subscription.

Project used to be included in our Enterprise package and now we have to pay extra for it since Planner doesn't provide what we need. We can't afford it and it's super frustrating you've taken that away.
Project is on different license admin !
You kind of already have gant chart on planner schedule, just revamp the bar to be more scalable...
i can't quite believe what i'm reading here. I need a Gantt view for Planner. I have a useless Calendar view instead. Now i see that Microsoft's answer is that we should use New Project if we want a Gantt view, but this is completely disconnected from Planner! Anyone managing a set of tasks will find a 'timeline' view useful. The New Project is very basic indeed. Using a SharePoint task list is yet another disjointed solution. What's going on?
Am I reading this right that actually they are not enhancing Planner (which should be great as fully integrated to O365 groups etc) but have added Planner type functionality into MS Project? This all seems like a very confusing product roadmap.

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.
