      • Project Online - Financials cancelled, please explain way forward

        According to Microsoft Fasttrack Project Online - Financials has been cancelled.

        Please advise what we can expect the way forward to be.

        (for proposal see https://blogs.office.com/2015/09/28/office-365-project-and-portfolio-management-ppm-for-the-mobile-first-cloud-first-world/)

        This is deeply disappointing as Microsoft has acquired this tool from Projectum ApS taking it off the market and now has no plan for it. This mirrors the experience a decade ago where Microsoft acquired UMT's solution as Project Portfolio Server but has cut it back to near non-existence (creating the need for another 3rd party financials offering).

        I'm supportive of Microsoft expanding the core product with effectively essential features (FluentPro anyone) but…

        • Priority voting

          It would be nice to have a page where the main Project Committee can VOTE on the list of projects to create a prioritization of the current project list. New voting would occur as new projects needed to be added.

            • Strong portfolio financials

              Currently we are very weak in portfolio financials. We need to have capabilities around funding, detailed budgeting, capex and opex cash flows, allocation curves, cost breakdown structure, period financials etc. This is a great way to open the door with key decision makers.

              • Remove/hide default EPT

                It would be very nice if we were able to hide the default EPT.
                If an organization chooses to use workflows it is very frustrating that the users still can create projects that do not follow the rules of the workflow.

                  • Allow an alias to be associated with Baseline, Baseline 1, Baseline 2 etc

                    Being able to associate and alias (or renaming) Baseline fields would provide highly effective ways to present and view current project data and baseline data in a more meaningful way. If set at the server level (using Project Online or Project Server) it provides organisational consistency in how baselines can be used. The aliases should be visible in usage views and in PWA views. Typical scenarios are when the baseline should be set at the end of each key stage gate milestone or at the end of specific process stages.

                    • True Multi currency support in Project Pro and Project Online

                      Currently the currency setting is independent of the numerical value for costs. I would like to have project managers in different countries be able to plan and visualise project and resource data in their local currencies but then the roll up of data might show local currency (with other projects based on a different currency converted) AND have visibility of rolled up data with a global currency. At present there is only the option to have a single global currency (local currency setting is meaningless in the current version). And yes you can use custom fields to convert, but not…

                      • Addition of 'Programs' or structured grouping of projects for reporting and Risk/Issue assignemnet

                        Creation of program (multiple projects) , and enterprise (one per instance), where sites would be created and risks and issues, along with OLAP/Reporting could auto roll up to a customers alignment.

                        i.e. The same way projects can have sub projects, but without the embedding of the projects them selves. Designated 'Portfolio' pages would automatically have a different sharepoint site template, allow for high level risks and issues to be managed, and have automated dashboards for showing high level cost and schedule metrics, across a group of projects. The highest level, would then be the enterprise, where all programs, risks, and…

                          • Ability to prioritize on multiple criteria for portfolio selection

                            Currently we are only able to prioritize projects using a single criteria like Total Cost, Benefit, ROI etc. These are "positive" criteria which means that we have to maximize this criteria in a project for better score. But, we need to balance this with "negative" criteria like Cost and Risk. These negative criteria need to be minimized. Together, the positives and negatives provides a balanced view of the portfolio for selection. For example the project with the most "Total Benefit" and may have very high cost and high risk. The result of this prioritization can be demonstrated in a stacked…

                            • Add support for project linked lists (like Risk and Issue) such as Change Register

                              There is no easy way to have lists that are common to all projects, but can be reported on both at the project level and at the portfolio level. A change control register is a classic example where each project has change control, and the portfolio has change control for all projects.

                              • Allow editing of the Portfolio Analysis

                                To provide enhancement to the Portfolio Analysis by allowing user to return to Portfolio Details and edit the project selection (add new projects) then to continue on the process. The project world is a dynamic place, there is always a new item to be included in the portfolio analysis. This would allow the already great tool to have the flexibility of including late breaking projects , without have to create a whole new analysis from scratch.

                                • Duplicate existing portfolio analyses

                                  It would be good, if one could create a new portfolio analysis based on an existing portfolio analysis in order to follow up on the evolvement of a fixed portfolio set without having to click together each time the same scenario.
