Timeline view to show schedule
A simple timeline view like SharePoint tasks to facilitate viewing the schedule
We recently announced and rolled out the new Microsoft Project, which was designed specifically to help teams 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.
We’ve brought the Planner board view to the new Project! Along with this, you can see your tasks on a Timeline view, and a Grid view, both requested from many of our Planner users.
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 – see the attached GIF for a sneak peak!

Sorry, but a calendar view is hardly a "timeline". The current calendar view is a step in the right direction, but it lacks the proper "zoom out" possibility. I use planner to have a rough overview of my team, i.e. I think more in months/quarters then weeks (or even days). So basically the calendar is all purple for me.
I don't expect (or even want) a full-on Gantt. But a view where time on X axis with a week or month granularity is shown, and Y-Axis is filled with tasks that form "bars" to depict their runtime would be nice.
@timothy: I think this idea is not about a calendar view, but a timeline, similar to the timeline you can get in SharePoint, when creating a task lists with multiple tasks with start and due dates.

Finally, after 2 years this feature has been rolled out!
Navigate to project page, then click on "Schedule" tab to turn to calendar view.
Unfortunately we cannot change the color coding in calendar view (only pink for ongoing/late task, and white for task not started yet).

I/we need some visuals related to time (Scope, Schedule, Cost).
Currently using https://www.officetimeline.com/ and Planner losing support due to this "missing feature" (and group emails).
+1, I want this feature ! Thanks !
If Wrike can bring a timeline why cannot Microsoft.
So 18 months later still thinking about it?
This is a must fro true organization. a gantt chart would be best!
For crying out loud. Did they even talk to a single potential user when they developed Planner? This is the most obvious tool, enabling users to have a single simple overview about team performance to meet a shared objective.
A simple timeline should be enough....
PLEASE DO THIS! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.

wondering about how long you're gonna be "thinking about it" for. Any chance we can get some dates on when this feature will be available, if any? it's really difficult to make business decisions without knowing if a major feature is going to be available and when.
This is the one feature MS Planner is missing! If we could have this view, we would be able to fully integrate our project's workings into Planner

I agree. No Project management tool is complete unless it has a timeline.
