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!

No response yet?

How can such an important feature not be included yet???

What's the point in asking how you can improve a product if you don't respond to a suggestion made 2000 times over 3 years?
Agree with all these comments. Having a Gantt and Timeline view that automatically updates with changes makes this worth it. Otherwise not really effective.

Integration to TFS and Gantt. Gantt is a total must.
Yes, please, that would be very very useful. Killer feature.
I kind of disagree, planner comes from a different agile PM direction rather than the more waterfall based PM direction.
I've nothing against them incorporating it, but it doesn't seem like a best fit. You move the tasks through the buckets to track work and capacity (generally) rather than trying to find a critical path through all the tasks you have which a Gantt chart can help with.

It would be a very nice feature!!!

So what's the deal? Suggested almost two years ago... any update on progress?
Neil Barrett commented
Seems odd that you can create a simple Gantt chart in Excel but not Planner. It's a startling omission really.

GANTT could be useful, however, might Change the essence of Planner, as GANTT will require a number of additional features; i.e. resources, priorities, effort needed etc.

Gantt is essential for a good management of a project, Microsoft is losing space with competitors such as Asana.
Basix Gantt View required
Just look how many people want this feature. Please add
Please do add the Gantt features to Planner, with the calendar background and Start & End task date/hour features.i.e. the Planner Chart view is useless as you cannot see the overlapping of tasks on the timeline. It doesn't have to be MS Project depth in details but simply a day and hour based block with the resource assigned.
Phil Randall commented
Definitely need this. It would make Planner almost perfect!
its overly simplified - its more of a Kanban board, to be truly useful it should have dependencies and links between tasks
We would love to replace our gantt chart in our erp with planner.
Requires for specifik checklists like "Start datetime", "End datetime",
Split checklists between different members.
And then the gantt view for each workday, with hour and minutes as scale

Gannt View on a Planner linked to buckets and tasks like a Elegantt on Trello, but getting better integration. It will be a simplified version of Project.
