  1. Display windows in separate screens

    I propose to standardize the visualization as in Excel or Word, so to be able to separate the windows of 2 open projects in order to see them in 2 separate screens

  2. Color-code Cards from the Sprint Planning Board

    Would be awesome to have the capability to color-code Cards (right click with font functions drop-list) from the Sprint Planning Board View. Like most projects, Cards (Features) are moved around from Sprint to Sprint and it would be great to have visual trace-ability to compare to Baseline.

  3. Dual screen support.

    How is it not possible to have to separate Projects open at the same time, like any other Office product?

  4. Deep integration with Microsoft Planner

    Imagine this: you create a task in MSProject that requires action from a task owner. You click the Link to Planner button and go through the linking process (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/brismith/2017/08/29/microsoft-planner-linking-plans-to-a-project-task/#comment-48795). But instead of just being a link to the Planner plan, you actually see the task as a card on the plan, with Task Name, Start Date, Finish Date, and Resources all being pulled from MSProject to Planner. And you can add more tasks from MSProject to Planner, each as its own card. You then add this plan to a tab on Teams, and people can go from the…

  6. Issues and Risks custom columns in OData Feed

    1. we would love to have the Issues and Risks custom columns in OData Feed.
    2. Any custom list at the Project site should be available in OData feed.It would be easy to develop the Power BI report. Although there are ways to achieve it via Passing the Project site URL as function but with 1000 projects, it's very slow since it has to loop through all the sites and lists.

  7. Task board field editing

    Enable editing task information directly in taskboard (without need of opening task information dialog window and finding all the fields that should be updated).

  9. Impersonation support for CSOM to read other user's timesheets

    In order to centrally manage timesheets I need to retrieve programmatically all timesheets. If I try to impersonate I receive CSOMDelegationNotSupported. Please provide a method to access all user's timesheets.

  10. Improve CSOM or bring back PSI

    CSOM doesn't support many useful features that PSI used to (See individual user voice requests on this very same forum)

    If you can't make CSOM on part with PSI, then please bring back PSI. Its hard to explain to customer that they'll loose functionality after upgrade

  12. Active User Report

    Please provide an Active User Report similar to the main O365 components (EXO, SPO, etc…) that displays the “Last Activity Date” for a user. This helps us track our user adoption. It also will allow us to track who is no longer using their license so we can redistribute them to different users.

  14. allow two separate projects to be open in separate windows

    Currently, if trying to compare two project files you have to continuously flick between files - there can only be one instance of project open (even if you have multiple projects open).

    In order to COMPARE projects (without a work around of opening the file in IE) which I do on a daily basis, we need the ability to open multiple instances of MS Project in separate windows.

  16. Provide the ability to allow resources to be assigned to multiple resource teams. Track Max Units at resource/team level and at Res level.

    Allow resources to be assigned to multiple teams. Allow the resource/team to have a Max Units %. Maintain the "Total Max Units" on the Resource Record. Do not allow the sum of the Max Units for the Resource/Resource Team combination to exceed the Resource Max Units value.

  17. Add people picker field to Project Online

    Most of our clients want to register the project steering board members and possibly other stakeholders on a PDP. Not just by entering their name free format in a text field, but by selecting a name from the AD. This field excists in SharePoint, so why not in Project Online?

  18. Project Pro to PWA to Planner

    I would like to push out all tasks assigned to resources in Project to Planner.
    1. Use Project Pro desktop app to create my project (Job) schedule
    2. Publish Project schedule to Project Web App (to manage company-level project portfolio, schedule, resources, etc)
    3. Assign resources in Project Pro or PWA
    4. Link all tasks in a PWA enterprise project to Planner (so far, it appears I can only assign one task to one plan). Please let me "select all" tasks and link to one Plan. Make each Resource's Tasks appear in their view of the Plan, but all tasks…

  19. Allow reading of "Assignment Owner" property on assignments through CSOM/REST

    We are updating "Actual work" on tasks and for that we need to be able to programmatically read the "Assignment Owner" property on a given assignment. However - this value is not exposed - not through CSOM, PSI, ProjectData REST API nor ProjectServer REST API. The value returned is always NULL.

    We are integrating time registrations from a 3rd party tool into the project plans/schedule. We do this to allow the Project Managers to keep working in Project Online only - and allow them to keep track on the hours spent on their projects.

    We need this value to be…

  20. Improve performance of reading timephased data through CSOM GetTimePhase function

    If I want to read timephased assignment data (e.g. actual or scheduled work) for each day of an assignment via CSOM Statusing, it's necessary to do a CSOM call for each day the assignment takes.

    Code example:
    =====================================================
    //1. Creating Project Context, using credentials of a service account
    //with Admin rights on PWA
    ProjectContext context = new ProjectContext(...);

    //2. Getting resource for reading assignments
    EnterpriseResource resource = context.EnterpriseResources.Where(...).FirstOrDefault();

    //3. Load Resource Assignments
    context.Load(resources.Assignments);
    context.ExecuteQuery();

    //4. Get Time Phase for specific date
    var timePhase = resource.Assignments.GetTimePhase(myDate, maDate);
    context.Load(timePhase);
    context.Load(timePhase.Assignments);
    context.ExecuteQuery();
    =====================================================

    To get the timephased values for each day of the…
