  1. Add Timesheet Notification Options in Manage My Alerts and Reminders

    Submitted on behalf of a client.

    Similar to task notifications, allow for timesheet notifications in Manage My Alerts and Reminders with similar (appropriate) options.

    There are currently no notifications to the Timesheet Manager when a timesheet is submitted. The only way to see this is by logging into Project Online and going to the Approvals page. This is not very user friendly and forces the user to "go see" if there are any new timesheets in the system to approve, rather than being informed that there is.

    • Agile boards in PWA

      The new agile features added to Project are good for planning. Key aspect of agile is communication in teammembers, so access to the plan/boards for team is very important.
      It can be sufficient just display the boards in project site or in PWA.

      • BUG:Project Online: Project ID on Timesheet is empty.

        The Project ID column on the Timesheet view is empty. Each project has a unique ID generated by the Project template. Resources in our company sometimes uses the ID to identify the project as some of our projects have almost similar names but different IDs. This is a bug.

        • iPad integration for time recording on Project Online

          The current user experience for project online time recording is not great on an iPad. The cells for book8ng time are squeezed to the end of the screen and it is extremely difficult to enter any data in to the boxes. Could there be a way to enhance the mobile and iPad versions of project online to allow for an easier and slicker user experience.

            • Estimating view needed. It needs to support development of initial estimates, scaling for a new schedule, and de-scaling to improve data.

              After developing a schedule template, scheduling a past project develops initial estimating data. Scaling that data for future schedules gives fact based estimates, not subjective numbers. Capturing actuals and de-scaling provides a means to improve the template's data. Accumulated data could be graphed to support single point or range estimates. The technique could be similar to the method PriceWatersCooper developed (Summit), sold to IBM, which hid it in favor of Rational. Providing a MS Project estimating feature could really swing market share for Microsoft Project.

              • Flexibility of 'Default Timesheet Creation Mode'

                Currently Project Online has a 'Default Timesheet Creation Mode' which allows you to default to task, project or no pre-population values.

                Our use case would like to see the ability to use a hybrid rather than a global toggle. For example some Projects could be set to used task, and some to use project level timesheet pre-population.

                • Hide nonworking time columns in a MS Project chart or view

                  When planning a short time project, task or activity, nonworking time seems to take so much space that it diminishes all other important information. In Team Planner and Gantt Chart, for example, nonworking time columns take most of the space when following hourly precision tasks. It would be great to be able to Hide or reduce or customize nonworking time columns.

                      • Increase Task Duration Precision to 3 Decimal Places

                        Currently, Project rounds task duration to 2 decimal places, instead of 3. This is a problem when trying to set a duration in days of 1 hr = 0.125 days. Project unfortunately cannot handle durations to 3 decimal places, so it rounds 0.125 days to 0.13 days. This causes an incorrect calculation of the total duration of tasks, as 8 tasks of 0.125 hours each becomes 1.04 days total, instead of 1.00 day.

                        If Project increases the precision for Task Duration to 3 decimal places, it can correctly handle the smallest common duration increment of 1 hour = 0.125 days.

                            • Can't select any PM as the status manager, until they add a task to the plan.

                              Can't select any PM as the status manager, until they add a task to the plan. Remove the requirement that a task be created by the resource. Allow for anyone with project edit rights to the project to be selectable in the status manager dropdown or anyone with a PM license.

                                      • Task ID in Timesheet views

                                        Task ID in Timesheet views.

                                        Put "Task ID" into list of "available fields" in the timesheet views. Right now there is "Unique ID", but that is not the "Task ID" as most people see on the whole project schedule. Unique ID is not sequential.

                                        We would use "Task ID" in timesheet to sequence the activities to be in the same sequence as shown in the Project schedule.
