  1. Better Status Reporting

    Right now, the built-in status report is non-functional.
    We don't use it at all and have an Excel spreadsheet that pulls data from Project Online and it's painfully slow.
    Why doesn't Microsoft offer a Power BI status report?

    Have you looked into the new Project Online Power BI Content Pack? That includes portfolio and project status pages. You can download that and take out the pages and charts you don’t need. It’s available both through Power BI App Source and on GitHub. Let us know if that is what you’re asking for, and we can update the status of this. If not, let us know what you would have expected!

  2. Dynamics 365 Operations - Projects

    Dynamics 365 Operations - Projects (AX-Projects) and Project Online: Spring Release 2017.
    We manage (WBS, Change Orders, Baselines, Schedule, Etc...) in Project Online. We collect ALL our costs with AX-Projects. For example all Time collections is done within AX-Projects with AX-Projects Activities.

    We do this because AX-Projects does not honor correctly base lining a project as per PMI PIMBOK standards. THIS IS A HUGE GAP with AX-Projects.

    Please provide EXCELENT ODATA, Common Data Model and BI Support so that we can do this more effectively share data from AX-Projects to Project Online and Create BI Dashboards to be able to…

  3. Admin to be notified about all failed jobs

    In Project Online, a user can be notified about his own jobs only. It would be good to automatically notify an admin when any job fails, regardless of owner.

  5. Typos / Error reporting

    Hi there.

    There's a typo in an error message that comes up that I wanted to report. See the attached picture.

    Also, there should be an easier forum for reporting typos/bugs. I had to go via the Contact Us page, speak to an agent and get the link to find this page (which seems overly complicated to me). One way that does work, is the Kindle Reader whereby you can report a typo / error just by highlighting the text. Something similar would be really helpful. Otherwise, I enjoy working with MSP - I like the improvements that have been…

  7. time line improvement ideas

    • In the time line, task names should be able to be called out (instead of the whole task)
    • In the time line, Milestones should be able to be dragged in the middle of the time line (not only top or bottom edge)
    • In the time line, Allow overlap between specific tasks (not the hole schedule)
    • In the time line, allow to cut the timeline in the middle and not only start or end. Usefull when a single tasks last long, but need to cut the middle to shorten the whole timeline duration.
    • Allow shapes changes…

  8. Can we get a command button for Unique ID like "go to"

    I like to use the "Go to" command button if your schedule was frozen. But I am constantly adding and deleting tasks and have trained to report against the Unique ID #. But the only way to get to a specific task is by filtering. It would be great to have a command button that would allow for this.

  9. Allow icons as drop down values so that it can be copied directly into a presentation rather than having to convert text to icons in ppt.

    We have RAG status in use for milestones and have chosen a manual approach to get subjective opinion of PMs as to their milestones status. Current solution is a Lookup and it converts the text to an icon (Red, Amber, Green, Blue circle). We have created views and reports for Milestones in MS project that we copy into PPT to use in presentations. When copied over of course we can only see the original text, not the icon itself, which forces us to spend extra time on converting text to icon in ppt. How can this be done differently? Can…

  16. When you click 'open in a new tab' to Project Centre and other pages NOT have to refresh the page

    When you click 'open in a new tab' to Project Centre and other pages NOT have to refresh the page. Though I'd call this a bug rather than having to add it to a wish list :-)

  18. Showing of inactive tasks in predecessor and successor lists during critical path analysis

    Items that are tagged as "inactive" should either be shown with strikethrough fonts in predecessor successor lists of active tasks, or not shown at all. Currently, it is very confusing to do critical path analysis with inactive tasks in the mix. Another option would be to have a switch setting for the file to inhibit the showing of inactive tasks in predecessor / successor lists.

  19. Make the spell checker dialog box scroll to matching sheet row cell

    When you use the spell checker, the dialog box opens on screen and ID's a mis-spelled word. But the sheet row cells remain static on screen. It doesn't automatically scroll down to the matching cell where the error is found. (As does other Office programs Excel, Word do.) So you can see the word in context without having to manually scroll to it. (MSP Pro 2016)
