    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.

    Planner Team, The problem you need to solve is this:

    Project online has great integration between grid, board and timeline features. However, each of these functions are second class citizens compared to the equivalent but fragmented solutions available within office 365. For example:

    * Project Grids = Microsoft Lists. But the functionality in Lists regarding validated and calculated custom fields is superior.

    * Project Board = Microsoft Planner. But the functionality in Planner includes the ability to assign custom labels, group and filter by labels, tracks communications, provides good reports and it integrates in real time with email.

    * Project Timeline presents Gantt chart. It is OK and neither Lists, or Planner provide Gantt charts. However, we can produce a better quality Gantt view using Power BI sourced from Microsoft Lists.

    All we want is best of breed completely integrated solution.
