  1. Access to multiple PWA instances with Project tile

    Scenario for a multinational company with several business entities with only 1 Office 365 tenant.

    • As for now, to access any new PWA instance (different from the default PWA instance) through the Office 365 interface,
    1) Tenant administrator has to create a new Custom Tile in the Company Profile in the O365 Admin Center (as described in article "Add custom tiles to the My apps page and app launcher" https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-custom-tiles-to-the-My-apps-page-and-app-launcher-1136115a-75af-4497-b693-640c4ce70bc6?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US and "Customising the App Launcher– Part Two–Custom Tiles" https://epmsource.com/2015/08/02/customising-the-app-launcher-part-twocustom-tiles/)
    2) End-user has to **manually** add the new tile to its App Launcher

    • Configure O365 App Launcher to another PWA Site Collection (Other than default)

      The current Project Online button in the O365 App Launcher (Waffle) cannot be configured and only points to the default PWA site. If another PWA site is created it cannot be directed to using this control.

      This is confusing for users as this is the most visible navigation method.

      An option to configure the file path for this would be ideal.

      • Don't show features in the ribbon a user doesn't have access to

        When a user doesn't have access (either it's unused, or no access to it have been granted) to a specific feature, he/she doesn't want to see the button in the ribbon. The cleaner the UI is, the easier it is to work with Project Online.

        • Change the Project Online out-of-the-box "Owner" field name to e.g. "Project Manager"

          There's a lot of organizations who have the term "owner" referring to the Project business owner, not the Project Plan technical owner.
          Would be really great to change this to someting more relevant.

          • Make Menu Navigation More Intuitive

            When working with a project server-Sharepoint combination, users do not (and do not need to) understand the technical difference between those two components. But due to the changing menu items (depending on the fact if the user is currently navigating through the Sharepoint part or the project server part), users are irritated and get lost. It is not intuitive to switch between those two components. There should be a menu navigation including both components (as most users do not know anyway if they find the information they are looking for in the Project Server part or in the SharePoint part).…

            • Allow users to freeze panes when editing timesheets and the Schedule PDP.

              When making edits in the Schedule PDP or timesheet it would be helpful to be able to freeze the top row and first column so users don't have to continuously scroll up or down to check the date, task name, etc.

              • Make the currency project setting editable in PWA

                The currency project setting can only be edited in the options of the project client. It is possible to change it via the API, but it needs some extra coding. International customers like to edit the currency directly in the PDP in order to avoid providing everyone with a Project Pro license or spend money on development

                • Office 365 ribbon : change Project link redirection behavior

                  Scenario for a multinational company with several business entities with only 1 Office 365 tenant.

                  Scenario : 2 PWA instances for 2 business entities
                  - Instance "I1" (Default PWA instance on the tenant) with Admin "A1"
                  - Instance "I2" (additional PWA instance created following article https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-up-another-Project-Online-site-d44b5a70-3df3-417e-bad8-3021e3a4c896) with Admin "A2"
                  - Users from I1 have no access to I2 (and vice-versa).

                  When connected on any PWA instance (I1 or I2), end-users have a Project link in the Office 365 ribbon. The Project link is always pointing to the DEFAULT PWA instance home page (in our scenario : I1 home page).

                  • Make Project ID read only

                    The Project ID field is editable after an ID has been automatically assigned to a project.
                    This field should be read-only or ability to lock it down at the different stages of the project as custom fields.

                    • Richer Gantt Chart formatting options in PWA

                      I would like to see more options in the PWA Gant Chart Formats like in Project Professional Client:
                      - Conditions of showing bars by setting a Flag field ("Show for ... Task" option in Client)
                      - Showing start and finish with custom start and finish date fields ("From ... To" option in client)
                      - Option to format Gantt Chart based on Custom Enterprose Fields

                      • Create a resource search box in the Resource Center

                        Currently there is no way to quickly search and find a resource in de PWA Resource pool. This is inconvenient when you have to work with a large resource pool. A user has to scroll down the long list or has to use the screen slider and take a lucky guess to slide to the correct location of the alphabet.

                        As a work around we created several views (see attached), but this is far from ideal. A search box to quickly search and find a resource in the list would be nice.

                            • Mobile apps: add task commenting, photo/video sharing, risk tracking

                              The iOS Time Reporter mobile app for Project Online is currently quite dry and does not add very much to the individual user's experience.

                              By adding to the functionality, it has the potential to become a compelling useful-to-the-engineer app, e.g.:

                              - Ability to comment on a task thread so that the team all stay on the same page about progress and immediate issues / needs relating to a task (per the UI previewed in the Oct 2015 roadmap)

                                In many situations especially with low screen resolutions the height of PWA webparts is calculated strangely. Sometimes up to three scrollbars will appear, often the available space remains unused.

                                • Dynamic timeline in the project center

                                  Now the project center timeline is defined by portfolio managers and only partially flexible for project managers. PM's only see projects that were added by portfolio managers and have no ability on adding a project to the timeline in project center.
                                  It would be useful to have a dynamic timeline that is showing the projects that are currently in the grid (based on the view that is selected)

                                    The stage gate workflow should be redesigned from a user experience perspective as the current workflow is complex from a usability perspective.

                                    • Format enterprise custom date fields to include only date or date/time

                                      Allow admins to choose date or date/time format for new enterprise custom fields. Right now, all date fields are date/time, which is not intuitive for users.

                                      • Rather than hiding toolbars every time we navigate

                                        Allow administrative configuration to show or hide command buttons, as dictated by organizational needs. Many buttons aren't ever needed by us. The current 'solution' of simply hiding toolbars only confuses or frustrates our users.

                                        • When a task has been inactivated it show show up in PWA the same way

                                          Right now it appears just like any other task in PWA and stakeholders do not know its been inactivated
