  1. allow two separate projects to be open in separate windows

    Currently, if trying to compare two project files you have to continuously flick between files - there can only be one instance of project open (even if you have multiple projects open).

    In order to COMPARE projects (without a work around of opening the file in IE) which I do on a daily basis, we need the ability to open multiple instances of MS Project in separate windows.

    • Deep integration with Microsoft Planner

      Imagine this: you create a task in MSProject that requires action from a task owner. You click the Link to Planner button and go through the linking process (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/brismith/2017/08/29/microsoft-planner-linking-plans-to-a-project-task/#comment-48795). But instead of just being a link to the Planner plan, you actually see the task as a card on the plan, with Task Name, Start Date, Finish Date, and Resources all being pulled from MSProject to Planner. And you can add more tasks from MSProject to Planner, each as its own card. You then add this plan to a tab on Teams, and people can go from the…

        Hi everyone!

        We’re still looking at how to build a deeper integration with Planner, a few small steps at a time. We’ve started some initial work, but always looking to hear more feedback!

        Per our previous comment, we aren’t focusing on a 1:1 planner task:project task scenario (similar to a “sync”), rather improving the 1 planner plan: 1 project task scenario.

        Please continue leaving comments and feedback, it’s all very helpful to us.

      • Enable concurrent editing and saving like a la Word and Excel in Office365.

        We have a PMO where teams of people work out of a single Project file. In our project team meetings, we update the status of projects real-time. Unfortunately we've been having problems with people editing the same file and having save errors or needing to open the file read-only. It would be really great if Project could adopt the same concurrent editing and saving features in the desktop clients of Excel and Word in Office 365

          • Allow display of Successors column in PWA views

            The built-in Successors column is not available to be added in PWA (browser) Project views for the Task entity. This prohibits people without the desktop client to be able to access this information and seems like a random oversight since Predecessors is available.

            • Allow Project Managers to delete their own projects within PWA

              Users with Project Manager role in PWA (leveraging Project Permission Model) cannot delete projects within PWA. They PMs have to do a workaround with Project desktop client and its clunky.

                • VS403309: Query WIQL text length exceeded the limit. It should contain no more than 32000 characters.

                  My team uses the MS Project. To synchronize work items with VSTS projects, use Team Foundation Server Office Integration 2017 installed for MS Project. Last week, when we try to update schedule of two projects, we get an error. This error occurs when you Refresh, or Get Work Items on query, or even on an ID. Creating a new project does not help to solve the problem.

                  It is impossible to continue working on working projects.

                  Please provide a solution to the problem as soon as possible.

                    • When deleting a task, maintain the relationships

                      When you delete a task, with predecessors and successors, the user should have the option to maintain those. For example, "as is" if Task A is linked to B is linked to C, and you delete B, then the relationship between between A & C is deleted and needs to be rebuilt. The "should be" is an option so that when you delete B, Project automatically creates a new relationship between A & C.

                        there has to be a way to track financials in a grid view with exposing data through the odata or even sharepoint for reporting. how can a project management tool not provide ability to capture forecast, budget, actuals over time (ms project is far too hard to use for this purpose)

                          • Project 2019 and beyond

                            Hi

                            Although this is not an idea, it would be nice to know if there are any new developments i.e project online 2019 in the horizon. The announcements blog doesn't work anymore and the net is basically lifeless with respect to any updates.

                                There are a number of what I feel are bugs with copy and paste in SharePoint designer and its interaction with Project Web Apps. I have encountered the following three issues:
                                1. When using Ctrl-C and Ctrl-P to copy a workflow, the copied workflow appears in the list multiple times, but they are for all intents the same workflow, as I found out when I deleted one of my copies and ended up deleting all copies and the original workflow to boot.
                                2. When copying and pasting parts of a workflow, if then statements with "or" logic ends up copying…

                                • Trace Logic Functionality

                                  Add a feature where you are able to click on either the predecessor or successor in the task form or relationship diagram and it jumps to the task that was selected.

                                  This feature would be similar to the inspect task except that it would show both the predecessors and successors.

                                  • Generic Resource Assignments causes a duration or work of 0

                                    Resources can be flagged as a generic resource and do have an max. availability of 0 %. Normally, generic resources behave like normal resources - you assign them to a task and depending on the task type the work/duration/units are calculated, even if there's are max. units of 0 %, it will calculate based on 100 %. Since a couple of months, this is not the case anymore, the client calculates based on 0% and as a consequence the duration of every task goes to 0 (=milestone). This is a huge pain. Please fix it. Thanks.

                                    • Does Project Server capture who last modified a project?

                                      Add a field to project and project server that reflects who last modified a project

                                      • Include Unique ID for current and referenced tasks in Split View > Details > Task Form (particularly the Predecessors and Successors view)

                                        Include Unique ID for current and referenced tasks in Split View > Details > Task Form (particularly the Predecessors and Successors view) to increase ability of schedulers to navigate and find related tasks.

                                        • Consistent entry from web app or desktop client

                                          When creating a new project, the process is slightly different depending where it is created.

                                          If created with the desktop client, we don't have the ability to specify the project owner.

                                          If created with the web app, we don't have the ability to change the status manager.

                                          We require more consistency, especially as we leverage project coordinator roles more.
