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!

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.

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?

Project Gantt <> Planner Gantt

Can't agree more with other comments. You guys in Microsoft has created a dozen of half-working apps, having part of essential functionality in ones and another part in others. Why not to make and develop fewer proper apps instead of this zoo? Indeed Gantt view for Planner is super easy to add, believe me it's absence will not increase your sales of Project licences, it will only increase annoyance of the customers and community.
My company has moved us all to MS Teams and I heavily invested myself in creating Tasks in there. Now that I have invested serious time into this, I think I now realize that I have two choices: 1) I go without a Gantt chart (fine with me, but my users insist they want one); 2) I throw all my work away and restart using a different tool.
I can't believe that I'm finding posts going back to 2018 talking about this topic and promising a Gantt chart for this and, here we are in 2021, and it's just not available.
I understand you want to make Project and hence dependencies and Gantt charts an upsell, but your Project online is barely an MVP and even misses so many features that are in Planner. If there was some way to actually connect Planner and Project tasks that might help, but as it is your tools are disconnected and both weak. Project Online is certainly not worth what you're asking for it, it is missing far too many core features
Hello Microsoft - I feel this is a in sufficient answer.
MS Project is a level too much for what we need to do, please provide basic option in Planner - or allow them to work with the old sharepoint list concept where we had these basic features available.
Also allow custom fields please
