  1. Provide 'SetProjectBaseline' method in CSOM

    We should be able to set project baseline through workflow or apps by calling this method and passing the baseline number as a parameter. This would allow organizations to set baseline through workflow at a specific point in time in the project life cycle.

      • Send notifications ONLY for tasks that have changed

        I'm using notifications to alert my team that they've been assigned a task. I have 400 tasks and a team of 30 people. Every time I publish, all 30 people get a notification about all of their assigned tasks, which is overwhelming them and now the notifications are useless. I'd prefer to have notifications sent only for tasks that have changed during the current session.

        • New Task Type Required for 'Fixed Work and Duration'

          There is a need for a ‘Fixed Work and Duration’ Task Type setting. This is required on construction projects to allow simple adjustments to both budget and forecast labour hours and duration without having to change Task Type settings.

          Schedules on construction projects typically use budgeted labour hours estimated in another tool that need to be imported into Project to forecast labour requirements. In order to populate these Work hours against activities, you need to change all your tasks to Fixed Duration and then insert Work hours otherwise it will change the Duration. Once this is done you need to…

          • Build Team in Project Online / PWA - Add search field for resources

            The Build Team page in Project Online / PWA needs a search field.

            It is needed to help organisations with large resource pools to find resources (at least by name as a minimum) that they wish to add to project teams.

              • Common documents for members of different projects

                Add the ability to download documents that are available to all groups, regardless of projects.
                For example, corporate rules, standards should be available to members of different groups. This is necessary so that in case of changing these documents, members of different groups always have access to the changed documents automatically.

                • "Calculate Resource Utilization from", should include the option: "Resource Engagement until" [date]

                  Project Pro > Project information > ‘Calculate Resource Utilization from’, should include the option ‘Resource Engagement until’ [date].

                  When Microsoft introduced the ‘Resource Engagement’ feature it replaced the ‘Resource Planning’ feature before it.

                  The idea with ‘Resource Plans’ was that high-level plans could be set in motion using this feature, then they would be potentially followed up with detailed project plans (e.g., in the manner of a ‘Rolling Wave’ approach). As such, one could set the ‘Calculate Resource Utilization from’ to ‘Project Plan until’ [date], so that the source of the projects’ resource needs could capture and report on the…

                  • Option to control Enterprise Custom Fields (ECFs) in Project Pro from Project Server/Online

                    There are possibilities today to make project ECFs mandatory and even lock them down for edit after completion with the help of the workflow feature.

                    But no matter how much ECFs can be locked for editing in Project Server/Online, a user can always edit project ECFs without restrictions in Project Professional when connected to Server/Online. This destroys the whole concept of governance and control of the data if you don't want Project Pro users to be able to edit certain project ECFs - especially when using workflow to mirror a project methodology/process.

                    Please provide an option in PWA settings to…

                    • Navigation of gantt chart should not change the way it is printed

                      Each time the Gantt chart of MS Project is zoomed in/out or navigated, the printed chart is modified, and the user needs to enter again all the data of the timescale, to be able to correctly print the Gantt char.

                      It makes nonsense, and is a huge problem. It should work like MS Word and Excel does. Navigation of the document should not change the way it is printed.

                      This poor programming belongs to beta level software, not a decades old commercial software.

                                New project baselines are typically required due to scope, priority, or resource changes. We could track these changes more easily if each baseline included a comment field.

                                        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 :-)
