    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…

    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.

    You can now choose up to 25 colored labels per task in Planner and Planner tasks in Tasks in Teams. More labels allows for greater flexibility when organizing tasks. Use labels to flag risks, signal delays, help fine tune task prioritization, clarify accountabilities, or categorize tasks around a theme spanning multiple buckets. Anything you can think of that requires color-coding and tagging tasks, labels can help.

    More labels has been a top customer ask and we’re happy to make it available now to all organizations. Try it out in the mobile and web/desktop versions of Planner and Tasks in Teams.

    RE: June 10 2019 post:
    1) How do you use labels to organize your work?
    The same way we use tags....to organise and structure tasks from different perspectives
    2) How many labels do you need?
    A large number of them...noty sure there should be a limit but obviously 6 is not enough and not sure who would have thought of that number!!
    3) Would you like an ability to customize colors? If so, how would you use it?
    Yes, as for google tagging, colours should be available for each new tag.
    4) How would you like labels to appear on task cards?
    I think the current arrangement is ok.
    5) Is there anything else would you like to add in regards to labels?
    Filtering, ability toi setup different views based on labels and/or buckets
