    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…

    I'd still like to see Gantt chart view in Planner and even in the new Tasks for Teams if that is possible instead of moving and licensing Project.

    We’d love to hear more about the following:
    1. When would you delete or archive a plan?
    2. How long would you like it to be accessible?

    Feel free to include any specific scenarios where archiving a plan would be useful.

    We appreciate your feedback and look forward to reading through your comments!

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team

    When project is complete, have ability to archive the entire plan with attachments etc to an archive folder in case needed again in the future or to use as a basis for another plan.

    Hi everyone!

    A workaround for this is that we’re currently rolling out improvements to the Copy Plan experience.

    This improvement will include the ability to choose an existing group or team to copy the plan into. You’ll also be able to customize what gets copied over.

    I will share another update when this is available to everyone through Planner’s web experience. Please let me know if this unblocks your scenario.

    Hello all,

    As an update, we’ve paused work on this item to pursue wrapping up work on a few other high priority asks.

    We appreciate your patience and feedback on this, and hope to resume work on this soon. Please keep voting and letting us know that you’d like to see in a Planner UWP app!

    Cheers,

    Please create a desktop app for Planner that can be used offline for the times when someone is on a plane or doesn't have Internet access at a certain time.

    Any idea when this will be released? Will it work offline?

    Beyond the iCalendar feed, we will continue to explore our options for adding tasks to Outlook Calendar automatically. We would love to hear more of your thoughts on the following:
    -What information from tasks would you like to carry over to Outlook Calendar?
    -How many different plans would you like to view on your Outlook Calendar?
    -Any specific scenarios or examples of how this would fit into your workflow

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team

    When will the feeds actually sync? I see a way to add the calendar with iCal and as an admin of a plan, turned it on but not all of the tasks assigned to me show on the calendar and as they are added it doesn't sync.

    Hello!

    Thank you again for your feedback and patience. We’re happy to announce that the schedule view of tasks is fully implemented and the iCalendar format feed is coming soon! Head over to tasks.office.com to check it out!

    Here’s a link to our support article to learn more about viewing your tasks on a calendar: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/view-your-tasks-on-a-calendar-8647d2c9-9bc7-466a-b5b3-74b3596fade2?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    If you’re still interested in an integration with Outlook, please follow along with the conversation on this thread: https://planner.uservoice.com/forums/330525-microsoft-planner-feedback-forum/suggestions/11037114-integration-with-outlook-tasks

    We’d love to hear your thoughts on these two new features! Feel free to comment below, send us a smile through the O365 menu (select the question mark icon, click ‘feedback’, then include the word “Planner”), or tweet using #MicrosoftPlanner.

    Cheers,

    I see it is starting to roll out but when I add tasks it isn't syncing beyond what was first there as calendar is added. Please fix ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I remove and re-add it adds tasks but to do that every time a task is added is nonsense!

    Thanks for all the feedback!

    In the latest update of our iOS app, we’ve added the ability to access all your plans from Teams within the Planner app. On the Planner hub, you’ll see plans from Teams included within the Recent plans and All plans sections, as well as their associated team and channel information. You can favorite a plan for easy access and then work on it in Planner.

    Cheers,
    The Planner Team

    Hello!

    Thanks for all the feedback! We’ve just launched push notifications in our latest app update. Users should now see a push notification when a task is assigned to them. You can learn more about this feature here: https://support.office.com/article/get-notifications-about-your-tasks-and-plans-cce223d6-b0ae-43cf-a080-266e2414a859

    We’re looking to add more notification types in future updates, so let us know in the comments if there are specific types of notifications you’d like to see!

    Hello! Since this is one of our top asks from users (and has been for quite a while), we wanted to provide a quick update here. As mentioned in our last update, our team has been heads down shipping some recent integrations, such as the Tasks app in teams and Tasks in Docs (both of which have initial versions rolling out now!).

    Recurring tasks (and the other top UserVoice asks) are still high on our backlog. I’ll provide updates here as this feature gets closer to being shipped! We also may use this forum to reach out to you, our engaged users, with design questions we have—so stay tuned if you’d like to help us bring you the best version of recurring tasks!

    In the meantime, it’s great to see so much active engagement here. We continue to iterate on our initial designs as we get more feedback from users,…
