  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

    • Dual screen support.

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

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • 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

              • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • 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…

                        • 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.

                          • Access to Project from standard Office365

                            I'm a home user of Office365 but regularly do work related stuff at home. I want to access Project Professional Online through my home account but can't because it only accepts student or enterprise versions. I think this is poor form. I'm willing to pay for the online access, so why can't I?

                                  Need to have a way to retrieve information a task modified by last person.

                                  - We can't measure if the task updated by a scheduler for a task owner either via task delegation or within the project itself.

                                      • BUG - Notebook naming with Project Site Templates

                                        This is happening with Project Online but I recall it happening with Project Server as well. Whenever you create a Project Site template and associate it with an EPT, the notebook naming convention does NOT change. It maintains the original name. THis is confusing and it means that we can't name the template anything particularly unique because every Project Manager freaks out that the notebook is wrong. And, the question is as to whether or not the notes are all sitting on the one single file or if they are sitting in the actual project. Also, this happens REGARDLESS if…

                                        • Release Home and Roadmap for PWA in Project Server 2016

Within a reasonable amount of time (a few months), make all features available in Project Online available to Project Server's latest version for on-premise users.
