    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…

    Microsoft wants to get paid for their work, I get it. But if this means everyone has to buy Project Plan 1 in order for them to see the activities/tasks, then this won't work.

    Users are expecting more functionality out of Planner. Needing to use third party software to make Planner work isn't going to be a sustainable solution.

    Best feature of Project - dependencies
    Best feature of Planner - sending email notifications & letting a large group of users directly edit Task details/dates

    Combine these functionalities in one piece of software!

    Thanks for your feedback on Copy plan!

    We’re planning on pursuing the following improvements to copy plan:
    1) Enable users to copy a plan within an existing group
    2) Copy plan in Teams

    Currently we are booked through November working on three BIG initiatives, but should have an update on scheduling soon after.

    In the meantime, we’d love to hear how you’re currently using copy plan and any other improvements we should pursue.

    Thanks again for your patience and feedback!

    -The Planner Team

    This is too risky. Why does Planner let any member permanently delete a Task? What is the purpose of even having an 'Owner' if everyone has the same rights to make permanent changes? Members should not be allowed to delete a Task or Bucket or even the Task Description.

    Can a Task be marked as viewable for the Assignee only, or to the whole team?

    There are numerous different suggestions on User Voice regarding the need to restrict member access on Tasks and Buckets, please do something about this, there is too much risk with open access.

    Must have the ability to limit Task and Bucket editing/deleting, to the owners only. Isn't reasonable to build a plan in Planner if anyone can accidentally delete all the work.

    Am always concerned when writing a Task that one of the 50 people in the group will edit the verbiage without me knowing. This leads me to think I should be working in Excel with a read-only file. Would like to have Planner have the option to only allow edits to be made by the Owners.

    Hello All! The priority feature is complete! Priority is rolled out to production across the Web and Teams. It’s also available in the mobile app an in the beta endpoint for the MS graph API. We’ve also updated the charts view to include a priority chart .

    Please give it a try and let us know what you think! If there’s something you’d like us to improve upon, please find and vote on that suggestion or create a new one so we can prioritize accordingly.

    for more info on the priority field, check out:

    Hello!

    We’ve just released our integration with To-Do as a first step towards a larger task coherence initiative.

    Why To-Do and not Outlook tasks?
    We are integrating with To-Do because Outlook tasks is being replaced with the To-Do app. This experience has already shipped for Outlook Web users, and the To-Do team is working on bringing this to Outlook Desktop apps as well.

    Today, you can view and edit Planner tasks you’ve been assigned in To-Do’s new Assigned to me list. This is available on to-do.office.com and To-Do’s Windows, Android, and iOS apps.

    Here are more details on this integration: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/Planner-and-To-Do-integration-bringing-you-a-more-cohesive-task/ba-p/553485

    Our work in this area is not done, and we’re relying on you to help us decide what’s next! This thread has grown to encompass a lot of different ideas and pain points, so we’d love to break it out to help us prioritize and dive deeper into user…
