  1. Show Hijri Date in Project Center / PDP

    In the Middle East, we can't show the Hijri Date in Project Center (Project Server 2010/2013/2016 with Arabic Language Pack) for the following:

    1. Start Date, End Date, End Date and custom field with date type in PDP.
    2. Timeline Date.
    3. Gantt chart.
    4. Views

    If we changed the calendar regional setting in site setting, and go back to Project Center We got the below error:

    "Sorry, something went wrong
    This feature requires either a Gregorian calendar or a calendar that uses a Gregorian recurrence pattern.

    Make sure your calendar is correctly set in:

    • Support for Arabic language in Lookup Table Custom Field in Project Server 2016 / 2013

      Problem

      The search in Arabic in Lookup Table Custom Field is not working properly in Project Server 2016 / 2013.
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Scenario

      In Project Server 2016 / 2013, I tried to create a lookup table with Arabic Entries by doing the following:

      - Go to PWA Settings.
      - Below Enterprise Data, Click on Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables.
      - Scroll down to Lookup Tables for Custom Fields.
      - Create a new Lookup Table with Text type.
      - Add Arabic Entries.
      - Go back to create a custom field that will get the data from the created lookup table.
      - Add now your…

      • Have true entity modified dates in the Odata API feeds

        With the update for modified dates in all entities in the Project Online OData API, it would be good if these dates were true modified dates. For example, if a project is published with no changes to any tasks, only the Project Modified Date should update but today all of the Task Modified Dates get updated too and match the project modified date. Changing to true entity modified dates would enable delta sync from Project Online OData to a SQL Database.

        • add/update the lag through client code

          please add the ability to add a lag to a tasklink. This is not available and not possible in PSI for project online. We have many times fallen short of a project online solution because this is missing.

          Others have had the same issue for years as well - https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/6386b55a-4a6c-4f13-b778-beb4faf8fc20/setting-lead-lag-on-a-predecessor-using-csom?forum=project2010custprog

          • 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.

            • persian calendar in MS project 2016

              recently you added Persian calendar (jalali,hijri shamsi) to windows 10
              it would be great that you add it to office and project 2016
              lack of this feature in project make it almost impossible to use for us in iran and those that use Persian calendar
              thank you

                • Make "automatic" Project ID field available in Formulas & visible to Workflow in SP Designer

                  Make this field available for use in a formula: so that it is possible to "lock down" the value among other uses.
                  Also make it available for Sharepoint Designer to see when designing a workflow.
                  The idea in both cases is to make this field controllable and/or useful in the process.

                  • Provide a means to enter and track project change similar to issues and risks

                    When a project has a change, for example, a scope change, schedule change or a change in approach, the project manager needs a place to document that change and typically seek approval from the project stakeholders. I would like to see a place to enter and manage changes similar to how project online offers a means to track issues and risks. Like risks and issues, the change would have a summary/title, a description of the change, a status (proposed, approved), a date stamp and preferably a way to seek approval for the change from one or more stakeholders. Being able…

                        • Planner integration: Support multi-tenant environments

                          The current planner integration feature doesn't support multi-tenant environments, i.e. it doesn't respect the PWA/O365 user currently logged in to Project client and the PWA instance. It takes only into account the Windows account. This is not helpful for people that have to work on PWAs of different customers as external service providers.

                            When creating a new Project in Project Online there is validation rules to prevent the use of special characters in the Project Name.

                            An issue was found in the default Project Site URL when the Dollar Symbol ($) was used in the Project Name and this symbol should be added to the validation checking to prevent these issues in future.

                            • Close button in Project Online behaves inconsistent

                              Currently the Close project button in the ribbon of Project Online will close the project and navigate the user to the previous page outside of the Project Detail Pages.

                              The majority of the time this will navigate the user back to the Project Center.

                              However if the user opens a project from project center, then visits the project site, and then navigates back to the project, the user expects the close button will return them to the Project Center, instead it navigates them back to the project site. This results in a poor and inconsistent user experience.

                              The close button…

                              • Project fiscal calendars should match Project Server/Project Online fiscal calendars

                                Our fiscal calendars don't start and end on the first and last day of calendar months. In Project Web App you can specify a 4/4/5 fiscal calendar. This makes reporting against fiscal time quite easy. Unfortunately this calendar doesn't sync with Project Desktop's calendar. In fact, there is no way to specify a 4/4/5 fiscal calendar in Project Desktop. This makes validating reports extremely time consuming for our Project Managers.

                                  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.

                                    The first Baseline a Project Manager sets should be protected in means, the Project Manager cannot overwrite this baseline without PMO approval.

                                    • Enable spelling and grammar check on PDPs

                                      Enable spelling and grammar check on PDPs, in particular for custom fields with multiple lines of text. Today you can select the spelling language in the Format Text ribbon, but it does not flag any typos. Having a spelling and grammar check on custom fields with a single line of text would be useful as well. Today the only option seems to be downloading and installing browser freeware.

                                      • CSOM method IsMemberOf(<project security group>)

                                        Add the possibility to find out through CSOM if a user (or the current context user) is a member of a given Project Sec Group (not AD or SharePoint) in order to provide a better UX with regards to e.g.: navigation or information filtering.

                                        • Show deadline indicator also in Project Online schedule views

                                          The deadline indicator is not visible in the schedule views of Project Online. Only the Project client displays it. This is a drawback, as it is one of the basic features of task management.
