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!

I agree with so many others here... it would be great to have a gantt / timeline view in Planner.
I did trial MS Project to see if it's worth it to get the gantt, but I discovered the assigned tasks in Project don't sync with MS ToDos, whereas the tasks in Planner do sync.
I sure hope someone's listening/reading and we'll get gantt/timeline view in Planner (soon).
I agree that Planner needs the option of a Gantt Chart. Yes, Project has a Gantt Chart, a Board, and a Grid. All very nice, but Project doesn't have the Charts, labels, or other nice extras that Planner does to help classify and provide details about tasks. Planner, on the other hand, has a Board and lovely Charts, but a useless calendar instead of a Timeline. MS makes both products, so you know it can be done. MS is making it so users have to look for non-MS solutions to meet their needs for a tool that manages simple to complex tasks, all in one.
Why can't we have a basic gant chart view in Planner? it would help people when they are making plans on when stuff needs to be done. Project is overkill for this.
MS Project is a good project but will be overkill for some organisations.
I too would like to relate dependent tasks.
I've used the Copy task link and Attachment functionality but this is cumbersome.
Would be good to drag and drop one task onto another. Or Link Task functionality.
This does not compromise MS Project product but is lightweight for those that do not want fully fledged PM tool.
Project is more than my Team needs. Planner would step up greatly with this ability. It is also the most requested feature on your uservoice. And we're STILL asking for it.
Project doesn't work for us. We would like Planner to have this function, please.
Hi Planner team!!
In my case, it is pointless to use Project just to have a Gantt view...Could you please develop it in Planner so everything is integrated into a single app??
This is the NO. 1 request. It can't be hard. ALL your competitors can do it.
This is a request for Planner, not Microsoft Project. When will it be available ? People are still using other products such as Trello because Planner does not have a Gantt Chart.

Dear planner team - we want to have this feature in planner not in project. As ASANA and Instagantt in the free version do.

Now there are a lot of casinos on the Internet and everything seems fair. But often there are big problems with free versions. I know that this is not a problem - with the platform from https://jackmobilecasinos.com/muchbetter-mobile-casinos/ MuchBetter casinos . They have normal registration and technical support service works well.
All lot of low budget or open source todo applications support a gantt view, why Planner not?
Can't be that hard to allow a plan to be viewed as a Gantt chart as all the info is there, the schedule view is completely pointless.
At the very least allow it be exported easily into an Excel Gantt or just import straight into Project for those that feel the need to use it (not us)
Wow we spent a lot of time learning Teams and Planner to consolidate from other programs so everyone is in the 365 environment. How is this even an open item still? This is such a basic need. We are putting all jobs as buckets inside Teams instead of channels and sorting by "assigned to" as a workaround but this is not a viable long-term solution and we are looking elsewhere.
Need list view first. Need a list view of all tasks from all plans -- assigned or unassigned. Tasks can get lost if list view only shows tasks assigned to you.
Project needs a license. Planner does not

Dear Planner Program Manager,
Here’s a user feedback/VOC for you,
Talk to your executives and let them know, people want Gantt view in Planner.
Project for the web is underdeveloped solution and people don’t have patience to hinge multimillion dollars projects progress on a underdeveloped tool.
Planner just works perfectly with your O365 services and all we want is a gantt view.
Project for the web is such a underdeveloped project management tool that it doesn’t have most of the features from its big brother MS project that it’s a joke to pay $30 per user per month. Not a value add at all.
Look at Projectplace, Ganttpro, Wrike,etc. they’re doing so good to give full fledged products.
But they don’t have the O365 integration power like planner. You’ve got that. It’s insane how you’re wasting this opportunity to being the gantt features and a few more other features and mint money with a planner pro for $10 !
I hope you guys pivot and see the value in making planner pro with gantt view.
I’m sure your project for the web numbers must be disheartening.
I think it’s getting too late.
Hope you can take users feedback seriously and get your leadership to understand what people want and grow your business.
The article is very well written and there is a lot of useful information. I have read similar articles before. <a href="http://titiktok.com">buy tik tok followers cheap</a>This view is relatively new, and worth exploring in depth.
Need GANTT in Planner as well. Project is overkill or should just be included in standard O365 and replace planner. Please bring Gantt to Planner
We need this functionality in SharePoint site - not Teams or O365 Group associated.
when will we get the Gantt on Planner?
