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.
We agree with you here! This is something we want to do — and we’ll keep you updated here on it.
Is there anything you don’t like about the capabilities? Where do you think it can be improved? Which features do you need most to be most successful from Planner that don’t exist in Project yet?
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.

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
Checklist or even better are Subtasks that can have dependencies
Custom Labels please!

The Planner capabilities I'd most like to see are Comments and Checklist. We use these all the time to facilitate collaboration in Planner and they will help make P4W more useful. Thanks.
We need comments, @mentions, checklists. This looks like planner with gantt and resources. I did this manage to lose features...
This should not be a think about. It should have been shipped with these features.
Josh Jandrain commented
The lack of documents, conversations, @mentions, etc that folks have come to expect across the entire O365 ecosystem is a significant usability blocker and lacks consistency.
They like the ability to have additional project planning features but the lack of the collaborative features kills it for our users and they go back to Excel when they need to track things like dependencies, etc.
Planner has the ability to group by more buckets, such as Assigned and if we could create our own "Group By - " and use on other plans. In Teams, planner keeps my dark mode but Project does not. The charts are a nice visual for reporting and the calendar works (if it could be printed) for the stakeholders the prefer that view.
James Ward commented
Project 1 should be planner + gantt, resourcing & roadmaps. Anything less and there's little point, especially as you're looking at a solution to promote a Plan to a Project - where does that extra info go? does it get lost?
Very keen n being able to use attachments, checklists and priorities using subtasks. Looking forward.
Devis Pecoraro commented
All Planner functionalities should be added!
I am particularly keen on checklists which is a very convenient way of keeping the plan high level and closer to agile methodologies. As suggested by others checklist tasks should be managed as subtasks in the Gantt view which will then allow individual assignments (been waiting a long time for this!!)
Add planners features: attachments, conversations,.. make it easy to share the plan as a link like Planner
When adding a task on Board, it should appear automatically under the same bucket not in the bottom!!
Add the critical path features like MS project
How can I change the calendar working days?

Document attachments, checklists, priorities, comments and Microsoft To-Do Integration.
