    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.

    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.
