Project for the web: Add existing Planner capabilities (e.g. document attachments, checklists, priority)
Add existing Planner capabilities to the task details of Project for the Web (e.g. document attachments, checklists, priority, comments). Also @mentioning as new feature would be great.
There are a lot of asks in this thread, and I wanted to assure you we are looking at all of them. As an update, I wanted to share what items are “planned” in the shorter term. This includes Teams Integration, Attachments, Notifications, Group By “Assigned To”. We are also “in development” for Custom Fields- which will allow you to create a Priority field. Other asks on this thread are a bit farther out to share details on, so don’t worry – we are evaluating everything you’re asking for!
Please continue to share your feedback!
Any update on this one?
I don't mean any disrespect, but really? It seems like Microsoft is developing these projects in real time while we are trying to use them. Planner lacks things like dependencies and and timeline, which P4W has, and P4W lacks all functionality that Planner has. What's the strategy here? Develop 2 products in parallel and take a long time while customers are filing thousands of requests on support blogs? Why release these half-baked products at all? Sounds like a recipe for losing customers... I'm at a point where I need to look for some other product as neither one of these are adequate.

Same for me, P4W should be Planner Pro. Additional features, not a completly separate product. I cannot expect our users to use 2 incomplete products. It will get harder to compete with non Microsoft solutions.
Planner for project members and Planner Pro (with the added features of P4W) for the project managers. No need for read only access for O365 users since they have access to Planner / To-Do.
Please, go see Planner team and work with them not against them.
I would like to add the request for merging the two apps, I don't understand why the teams of Planner and P4W do not work on a single product instead of fragmenting user experience and operations
Would really like to see pretty much a merging of the two applications. Couple of example's I would like to see. The note's part be visible in the 'Grid' view as a column. The ability to comment on tasks similar to how comments can be added to the Planner tasks. Ability to Label the Project tasks, and add a Priority to tasks. I would really like the same/similar filtering to be brought to all three tabs.
I really enjoy the simplicity and easy of access through teams currently available. Just hard to completely commit to until more features are added.
Please merge with the Planner team and rebrand, the slow development speed on P4W is starting to get frustrating, on this pace i can make my customers happy in 2022, while most of the functionality is allready there.
How do I vote for this x3,000? Project + Planner = Awesome. Maybe just consolidate the two? Not sure why these two apps are standalone. Anyway, I like the direction MS is moving on both of these.
Add also email reminders about new tasks and delayed tasks. Thx!
any update? please, we need planner capabilities in projet for the web: filters, attachments and checklist, ...
It would be 'better' to integrate Planner into Project for Web, then this goes away.
It is not simply about the functionality, but using Planer for group task management, you can't do this with Project for Web. If I assign a Planner task to someone, they are informed and can access it. If I do the same in Project nothing happens.
One single Project/Task mgt platform is what we want - look at Wrike
Brett Wyrick commented
I'd really like to be able to comment/chat on each task like in Planner (or other PM tools like Smartsheet).
I'm very disappointed that I can't create a P4W and similar to Planner, simply:
1 - assign it to a TEAM Channel Tab
2 - when assigning someone to a Task, it automatically shows in one's Outlook tasks
3 - attach files
4 - write comments
Checklists please! And hopefully more than 20 which is the limit for Planner
I am not sure what there is to think about! I thought this was going to be planner with dependencies, it is disappointing to see a loss in functionality.
Herbert Schlager commented
All planner features are necessary. Additionally: Paste (eg. Printscreen) to Task-Notes and communication (is also in planner not working for now).
Comments! Priority and more Filters Just Like planner
Breno Ariani commented
Comments that are linked to outlook, such as in planner, its weird that Project doesn´t have all the features that Planner has. It should be an improvement, but it lacks basic things that are already running well in planner.
James Ward commented
This needs a complete rethink - the frustration I have now where I'm trying to use Planner and Project is driving me to now want to use either. I have multiple small projects in planner that could use the functionality in Project 1. However because of the following I'm considering ditching both:
1) I can't migrate a project from Planner to Project
2) Project 1 doesn't have the Planner functionality
I was excited that Project 1 was being released, and have touted this to multiple colleagues, however it's now dead in the water for me due to the lack of functionality and lack of interoperability with other 365 elements (Planner/Teams/Sharepoint etc).
The ideal situation for me would be that the Project 1 elements were a bolted on (paid for if you must) enhancement to Planner, providing a greater level of control and planning capability:
Why this wasn't the first vision for this is testament to the disconnection between the Planner and Project teams in MS
Please, add Filters and Charts for see and plan your tasks
