    This would be a big help. We are starting to use planner for more things including larger projects. This is a standard thing that is like a given for files so being able to just view a planner at the very least will allow us to grant visibility into a project without the risk of anyone changing it if they are not supposed to.

    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.

    So frustrated with this decision. I am trying to champion using Planner at my company. My CEO's main ask is to have a Gannt view and because of this we are back to using an excel sheet. The excel sheet is a very manual process and does not include many of the features that are already available in Planner. I have a few licenses for Project that some of our project managers have but we cannot afford an additional $10 per month per user just to have this view. Because of this it is forcing us to have work arounds that are very difficult to have processes around. It drives us away from using Microsoft products to where at some point we will just end up going with other providers because the total cost for the features that we use will be less. This one is a simple ask. Just provide the Gannt view in planner and associated tasks. It was being worked on but pulled because you wanted everyone to license project. We are not going to overkill our license's with Project to enable this.
