  1. Sprint dates in "Manage Sprints" are not in-line with the dates from the plan

    The new agile features within the client are good, but the sprint dates in the user interface 'Manage Sprints" are not mapped to the dates of the tasks in the actual plan. That should not be the case.

      Hi Julian!

      I hear you on that – I wanted to make sure you knew we had the Sprint Start and Sprint Finish dates in there. We’ve heard similar feedback before, so now that your request is more clear, we’ll listen to more feedback and see what the best route is.

      There’s a scenario of a hybrid classical method alongside the scrum ones, which is why we want to make sure we can still support that.

      Thanks for the feedback – we’ll keep listening for this one. I’ve also marked this back to “Under Review” so more users can vote and comment on this.

    • Mind map view

      I would like to see a mind map view of project's tasks in a separate view "similar to calendar view" . It would be extremely beneficial as a visual WBS for the project. There is a moment that the project manager wants to visualize the WBS of the project, however to be still linked to the gantt chart view & calendar view. I think this is a valuable feature.

      • Allow administrators to set default value of subproject checkbox

        In an organization with 1000+ users, many project center viewers miss this checkbox and have to make a support call. We should be able to default the value to "on."

        • View Preview option in Manage Views

          Need a button under the "New View" and "Modify a View" screens to show a preview of the changed view, either real-time as changes are made, or after (alongside "save"). If there is one, the Admin Guide doesn't show it, or how to get to it.

          • Save page setup to view

            Views are very useful however it would be great if you could set up and save the page setup and print settings for a given view. This would be useful for instance when regularly saving or printing to pdf.

            Looking forward to other's thoughts and feedback.

                • List of Project Detail views in PWA is not correct when using Project Permissions

                  A user that only sees a limited number of views in the Project Schedule PDP, will have the list of all views available as soon as you hand her/him "View Project Details" via Project Permissions. As soon as the user clicks on such a view, he will get a "Permission denied" error. So it is then up to the user to identify which are the "good" views.
                  The user should only get the views that he has access to

                  • resource center view reset

                    PWA remembers user applied changes to views, however it would be useful if there was an option for user to reset the view to the enterprise default.

                    • In Project center it is very difficult to search and identify projects from large list.

                      In project center there should be options to freez rowa and column. Also there should be options to filter as per requirement for all columns. Currently filtre is not applicable for many colimns

                      • Make Physical % Complete editable in PWA

                        Please, make Physical % Complete editable in PWA schedule views.

                        As observed since Project Server 2010, throughout 2013 and Online as well, tasks built-in field Physical % Complete cannot be edited. It should be possible as it is editable in Project Professional and its purpose is to enter data manually.

                        In PWA views (access via browser) clicking on this column makes selection gray (uneditable) in contrast to for example % Complete as shown in attached screenshot.

                        This issue has been reported before: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/projectserver/en-US/d449410d-edec-4644-a8da-e1ccfcae0ddd

                        • time line improvement ideas

                          • In the time line, task names should be able to be called out (instead of the whole task)
                          • In the time line, Milestones should be able to be dragged in the middle of the time line (not only top or bottom edge)
                          • In the time line, Allow overlap between specific tasks (not the hole schedule)
                          • In the time line, allow to cut the timeline in the middle and not only start or end. Usefull when a single tasks last long, but need to cut the middle to shorten the whole timeline duration.

                            You can create views of the Project Center where you can add a field with the URL and the link to the Sharepoint site associated with the corresponding project. In this way you can create views to easily identify and filter the sites to which we want to access.

                            • Use Project level custom fields in ALL views

                              Many (but not all) views in PWA can be changed and new fields can be added. However the detail views of type "Project", "Resource assignment", "My work" and "Timesheets" don't offer any Project level Enterprise custom fields to add. Having these fields available would offer the possibility to show additional project data e.g. order number or project status to the user.

                                  I tried enabling display sum value for the custom list for the manual entry number type fields but the Sum values are not showing up on the list with new feature. But I can see them when changed back to the classic experience. May I know Is this a product issue? or do I need make any changes to see the Sum value with advanced feature?

                                  • Enable conditional formatting of tasks on Timeline

                                    It would be great if there could be possible to define task color on Timeline according to some field value.
                                    For example, we have a Task status field and Blocked tasks would display in red, Completed tasks in grey, Running/Active tasks in green, etc.

                                      • More powerful PWA Views (Project Center, Resource and Detail views)

                                        Configuration and UI of Project Center, Resource Center views can be made more powerful. Especially searching projects/resources should be made much simpler and easier with keyword search not custom filter. Configuration should be made similar to SharePoint views. More complex filtering and [Me] and [Today] based dynamic filtering should be allowed. Filtering, sorting should allow some calculated functions from excel or vba etc. Formatting like conditional formatting should be introduced.

                                        • Add Task Hierarchy to Resource Team Assignments View

                                          We occasionally have similarly-named tasks in a project. If we assign these to a team resource, those searching for the tasks in the Resource Team Assignments view are not sure which to choose. Request that TaskHierarchy be available in this view to clear up the confusion.
