    • 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

      Regards, Bullvan

      • 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.
        • Allow shapes changes…

        • 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

          • In the Project Center views the associated Sharepoint sites can be displayed.

            In the Project Center views the associated Sharepoint sites can be displayed.
            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.

            • Sum value is not displaying on the Sharepoint list with advanced feature

              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?

              • Insert a custom field in multiple views

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                              • Since you have now added Status to the TimeLine view, can you include a bar for baseline information?

                                Since you added the capability, not yet in full production, of putting status information on the Timeline view, can you also allow the user the ability to include Baseline information. Giving the user the ability to select bar styles in the Timeline view, like we do in the Gantt Chart, would be a great help.

                                      • Ability to use Enterprise flags and number fields to drive bar styles

                                        Provide ability to use Enterprise flags and number fields to drive bar styles. Currently, we as a team have to set aside local flag fields to drive bar styles via certain flags. An ability to use Enterprise flags to drive a bar style would free-up local flags for internal user purposes. Also, instead of flags it would sometimes even be more convenient to drive bar styles via a numbers field, and preferably an Enterprise numbers field. For example, we may state that we want one bar style for a value of 1, another bar style for a value of 2,…

                                          Ability to show link lines from a milestone/task on one summary rollup and connect to a milestone/task on another summary rollup. Ability to control the thickness, color, striping of any one of those link lines. This will enable us to control visualization different kinds of links (like primary, secondary, tertiary, or links for different capability threads). Suggest creating a flag field titled “Show Rolled Up Successor Link”. A “yes” value will trigger showing the link line if that item is rolled up on a summary of if the item to which it is linked is also rolled up to a…
