  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:

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • Planner integration: Render Planner icon also in PWA and add additional status columns in web and client

          It is necessary to display the planner icon also in the web. Planner is a tool for team members, so these should be able to quickly navigate to the work management area.
          Apart from that basic information from the Planner should flow back to Project, at least on a button click by the project owner: number of items open/in progress/late/closed, latest finish, earliest start

              Hello Vamsi,

              I’d like to understand what exactly you’re trying to do here – have you tried using “Import from Excel” when creating a new Project file? Are you trying to use an MPP in both Excel and Project? I’d like to understand what you’re trying to achieve by using both applications on the MPP.

              Thanks for your feedback!

            • 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…

                  • make the status manager the ability to edit its tasks in the project

                    the status manager can be the resource manager and all the tasks assigned to the resource, the status manager (resource manager) must arrive to approve and publish them.

                    you need to create a column for the status manager for each task so that you can select tasks belonging to different status managers (managers of resources)

                    make it possible to edit these tasks by status managers
                    for the possibility of delegation of task decomposition in a large project

                      • 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.

                            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.

                              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.

                              • 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.

                                    • Group for Project Manager to edit projects they do not "own" in SharePoint Permission Mode

                                      We want all Project Managers to be able to edit any project in our instance and we're using SharePoint permissions mode, but our Microsoft support team has noted this capability is not available now and to submit the idea. This can be done in Project Server Permissions mode.

                                      The alternative work around is to give all Project Managers Admin access or Update the Project level ECFs from Project Professional->Project menu->Project Information.

                                      I'm not sure why this basic permission option is not available...

                                      • 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.

                                        • task schedule avoid tasks

                                          I would like to see a dependency option for schedule this task which cannot happen at the same time as these other tasks. This may be for a number of reasons, but for example, there is a change freeze on an environment so no tasks for that environment can be scheduled at this time, so I want to put a task representing the change freeze, and then other activity tasks need to avoid this task.
                                          This the change freeze task moves then the dependent tasks could move.
