    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…

    Paying for the timeline/gantt chart feature alone with a licensed Project app is definitely not the answer the user community was waiting for.
    For those looking for a workaround you can use Sharepoint task lists that include a timeline and Gantt chart view. You would however loose planner specific features (bucket view...). To get both in a single place you may be able to sync your planner tasks with a Sharepoint task list using power automate. You'd then be able to display your tasks from planner and the Gantt chart from Sharepoint in a common space in Sharepoint.

    No timeline/gantt chart or roadmap alike view is a show stopper in my organization. We are using Sharepoint extensively and while trying to promote tasks/timeline for small projects management the interface is dated and not intuitive. Planner could have been an option but without this key feature available we are considering Trello or Monday.com
    Project offers the functionality but cost is 3 times more expensive than Monday.com for a user base of around 100.
    For those looking for a possible solution in planner:
