  1. [Bug] The Site Title can not be changed in Seattle Master Page in Project Server 2016

    By default In Project Server 2016, the assigned Master Page for the PWA Instance is Seattle with Home word as a Site Title.

    So I have tried to change the PWA Site Title through

    - Site Settings > Look and Feel > Title,Description and Logo.

    But unfortunately, The new Site Title is not changed as attached.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    By the way, The farm has been updated with the latest Cumulative update (Sept 2017) for SharePoint 2016 and looks like the issue still not solved!

    --------------------------------------------------------

    I mentioned all the detail at the below link and I also tried to introduce two workarounds…

      • Enable centralized deployment of Add-ins via the Office 365 admin center

        For Excel, PowerPoint and Word, it is already possibly to deploy Add-ins using Centralized Deployment via the Office 365 admin center [1], for Outlook it is announced to follow soon. But what about Project Professional?
        This feature would massively reduce barriers in enterprise environments for Add-ins for Project .

        • Enable Corporate Buying of licenses for Office Add-in for Project

          Currently it Centralized Deployment is only possibly for free Add/ins [1]. Paid Add-ins are only possible by additional purchase.
          Please add support for paid Apps.

          • There should be an option/feature to restore the deleted Project from recycle bin.

            There should be an option/feature to restore the deleted Project from recycle bin. Because restoring a single project is not possible by Microsoft. And even so the entire site collection needs to restored to the point time which impacts the data in the other projects. Its a request to Microsoft.

            • Projects' publication

              You could improve this rescue, checkin, and publication scheme.
              It is a very fragile form in terms of maintaining the integrity of projects and difficult absorption by users.

              • Audit Changes to Project Fields and other PWA Components

                Need a way to enable auditing of the changes that happen on all project components (i.e. Project type Enterprise Custom Fields, Resource Plan, Strategic Impacts, Lists in Project Sites, etc.).
                This would be applicable to saves not just publishing.
                The date of the action and the user that performed the action should be available.
                This should be available for reporting.

                  When configuring Project Online the application constantly returns an error. Will you please change the ability to remove "Sorry, you don't have a license to use Project Web App." error to be performed in GUI rather than PowerShell

                  • Create Project Site on First project save

                    The settings for project site creation have now changed and have been moved to the EPT. There is now no option to automatically create a project site on first project creation - but rather you have to publish the project once its already created. For many this is now an additional step - as a lot of customers create projects in the project centre off a sharepoint list... these new settings currently appear to be a backward step or overhead. this request is to add the ability to include a setting "Create site on first save".

                    • Ability to turn off email notifications at the Project level.

                      I am rolling out Project Online to an organization - we are just starting but have 2 different levels of PM capability - a few senior PMs can enter projects and have their team members get notifications and task completion, etc. - the less senior members are new to Project generally and we really don't want emails going out to their resources until they have better handle on project tasks entry, etc. --- however, we are using the Project portfolio status level irrespective of the project tasks completion to provide management a view health factors. It would be great if…

                      • Allow Project Sites to be automatically configured when creating new projects in PWA

                        Allow Project Sites to be automatically created/configured when creating new projects in PWA Project Center - at least provide the PWA Admins the ability to activate or deactivate this feature.

                        Right now when a new project is created the end user must edit and publish the schedule in order to create the project site - not the best nor intuitive way to create sites ...

                              From the PWA configuration you can customize the notifications that the user receives when a project is published. You can indicate which project data you want to send to the user.

                              • Clone Project Online PWA instances

                                Provide the ability in Project Online via the SharePoint Admin Center to clone one PWA instance into a new blank PWA instance so that you can have replica PROD / DEV / TEST PWA instances. This would be good out of the box via the SharePoint Admin Center UI without needing any tools.

                                • Implement versioning in Project Online

                                  Similar to the functionality available in Project Server on premise, please implement automatic and nightly backups and the ability to restore from backup project schedules in Project Online.

                                  This way, if a user's schedule becomes corrupted or inadvertently publishes erroneous data, an administrator will be able to restore a previous copy of the schedule to the Project Online tenant without causing Timesheet and data anomalies.

                                  • Deleting Enterprise Objects, ECFs and Lookup Tables

                                    Currently when deleting projects, resources, ECFs or lookup tables in PWA you have to select the object then scroll to the top of the page to select OK or Delete. The vague message appears asking if I'm sure I want to delete. I would like the message to display the name of the object you are deleting within messaging.

                                    For example, "Are you sure you want to delete John Smith". Or "Are you sure you want to delete ENT Business Area". This message would display for any items being deleted with the name of the project, resource, EFC, lookup table,…

                                    • User Office 365 Groups with Project Sites

                                      Make it possible to point Office 365 Groups to an existing project site so we can use the power of Groups for project e-mail communication while keeping the documents on the project site i.e. not creating a another document library that could split document location.

                                      • Allow External User Access to Project Center

                                        I'm an internal project manager and want to collaborate with an external pm. When I say external, I mean that person does not have an account within my tenant. Even though he has his own O365 account and his own Project Online subscription, I have no way to allow him full access to my Project Center.

                                        My only work around is to create a generic account within my tenant, assign it a Project license, and give those credentials to the external pm.

                                        It would be great if I could grant that external pm access to my Project Center via his…

                                        • Local version for MAC

                                          I need a local version for MAC. With other 365 products, I can download to my machine. With Project I cannot for MAC, please explain why?
