  1. Create a better PDP page

    The PDP page needs a facelift its so dated and awful you cant compare to the new powerapp form or even modern sharepoint form . Create the ability for the PDP to include a form based design that can cater for a better layout

        • Typo in project update status alert

          When there is a pending update to a project and you have the project checked out, it alerts you that you should check the project in before editing it further. However, it says to "check ins" the project rather than to "check in" the project. Screen shot attached.

          • Color-coding for Tasks on Timesheet Page

            It would be really helpful if the tasks can be color-coded on the Timesheet page view. That would make it easier to input work hours in the right task line. Attached is an example in Excel.

              • Enhance the Title of Project Detail Pages (PDP)

                For system default PDP, It will show the corresponding project name on its title. e.g. "Schedule : My Project Name"

                For custom created PDP, we can define the page title name but the project name is not added automatically.

                Better to either show the project name by default or have options to show it or not, when defining PDP.

                • direct link to a view

                  It would be great if I could provide direct links to specific views. Example would be for views within the Project Center, but other pages such as Resources & My Timesheets would be useful as well.

                  I'd use the links from outside & inside of Project Online to direct users and executives to the specific view created for a purpose.

                  I understand the system recalling users' last selected view, and their customizations to it - but if I'm telling them "go here" and it instead brings them to their last view which isn't showing them anything I intended based on…

                  • Set default views by group / user

                    I would like to be able to prioritize the default views users see... not just the total list available to them, but which one actually gets set as their default.

                    Ideally I could do this per group, and in turn prioritize the order of groups as would apply to the experience I want someone to have.

                    So if group 1 has views A & B (ranked in that order), group 2 has views A & C, and group 3 has view D...., and groups were ranked in that numerical order, then someone in 1 & 2 would see A, B,…

                    • Drop the ribbon altogether and discontinue use of Save/Publish/Close/Check-in.

                      Drop the ribbon altogether and remove the need for Save/Publish/Close/Check-in. If I click in a field on a pdp and change something, it should save in real time.

                      Atomic changes should allow for easy change review and undo feature. Saving and closing a pdp would no longer take 10 seconds. Changes made to the gantt would be internally categorized and committed instantly and would intelligently drive the use of the recalculation engine so projects don't always take 20 seconds to save/publish/check-in.

                      • Risk Flag Dynamic Indicator

                        Current:
                        The Risk icon (black exclamation mark in the yellow triangle) is always shown regardless of risk's status i.e. if there are risks associated with the project, the icon is displayed, regardless of Risks status - Active, Closed, etc.

                        Proposed:
                        It would be more useful if the Risk Flag is dynamic, based on the status, e.g. Green shown when there are active items, Red for closed items and so on. This will clearly let us know and give more visibility that if there were Risks associated, what action is required next etc.?

                          • Local Time Zone for scheduled Tasks

                            When a task is scheduled, the task Date/Time is based on the time zone of the originator of the schedule and/or the time set on the Project Server. For multi-national (and even in different time zones) it would be great to have the date/time represented locally. For example, a task set to Start Nov 13 at 8 am in Seattle would show up on a Hong Kong computer to their local time - November 14 at 12 Am.

                            • Close button in Project Online behaves inconsistent

                              Currently the Close project button in the ribbon of Project Online will close the project and navigate the user to the previous page outside of the Project Detail Pages.

                              The majority of the time this will navigate the user back to the Project Center.

                              However if the user opens a project from project center, then visits the project site, and then navigates back to the project, the user expects the close button will return them to the Project Center, instead it navigates them back to the project site. This results in a poor and inconsistent user experience.

                              The close button…

                                The option to "Add as a new version to existing files" only appears when using the Documents webpart on project sites, not when in the Documents library itself (unless in classic mode). Please add this in both locations - and as a default behavior for windows explorer/drag drop when the library is synced using OneDrive for Business.

                                    • You need to really put yourselves in the position of a small business owner

                                      The list of choices shows the oversight of the biggest issue of all in adoption of this application. You need to literally have 10 small business people who have a need for this that have never used project or project management before who see this offered on purchased services and say, hmm, looks interesting, I think I will try it. At that point, the brain cleaning begins. You absolutely go out of your way to not provide any tangible end to end hypothetical scenario. This is what you need an end to end scenario that shows every step you need…

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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/)

                                            Hi all,

                                            Thanks for the feedback here – we see that it’s difficult to navigate to the correct PWA instance using the O365 Project button. We’re working on improving this experience so that you can always see the projects that you are meant to, and want to see.

                                            ~J
