    Hi everyone,

    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…

  4. View completed tasks in Bucket chart

    We want to be able to see Completed tasks in the 'Bucket' chart. It makes no sense to hide them!

    Also, could the completed tasks not be crossed out, so they're easier to read once completed.

    Thanks

  5. Dashboard showing tasks in timeline/calendar view (like a gantt chart).

    I would like to see a dashboard showing tasks in chronological order that populates as I add tasks. I would like to see this in a calendar/timeline view.

    I would also like to be able to sort tasks within a bucket by chronological or reverse chronological order.

  10. Totalling days/hours estimates for each category

    For each task, add an estimate for the days or hours for that task. Then for each vertical, provide a sub-total of the days/hours recorded in each task.

    Similar to what Trello does already.

  11. Don't show completed tasks in Charts

    Why in the bar graph of member don't show completed tasks? If in the circular graph(chart) show all tasks, including completed tasks, why it wasn't done for the bar graph?

    My boss would be happy if it could be done!

  12. Facility to download a Excel report on task details

    Facility to download a Excel report on task details in a Plan by assignee, by bucket. Currently no such facility is available hence no offline analysis can be done on the delays in completing the tasks.

  16. Planner Dashboard

    I would like to see the status of all current, completed, in progress, and past due tasks by assigned without having to open each individual plan. The bar graphs are great. I would like to see the same thing in a 10,000 foot view for all projects in a single dashboard.

  17. Comment a comment :-)

    The impossibility of modifying any comment added is pretty limiting. It would be nice to have the possibility of modifying any comment, tracking the modification accordingly. Moreover, comment below a specific comment (like in Facebook or Team to make it easy) will enhance its performance terrifically.

  20. Have a chart feature that includes all the channel plans tasks within 1 team

    The chart feature is a great view, but it is for the moment only available at the planner level. If you have multiple plans within a team (I have plans per each channel for example) - you can't see the combined team chart.
    This could be very useful to have resource planning and resource monitoring. Who has to much work and who can help that person
