    • 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.

        • 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();
              =====================================================

              • 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…

                • 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…

                  • Add support in CSOM to restart workflow and change EPT

                    We want to programmatically change the Enterprise Project Type in Project Server 2016/Project Online as it was possible in Project Server 2013 with SubmitStage. Please add support in CSOM for this operation as it was available in PSI.

                    • Why does the project calculates ( in case of auto calculate mode) when we change the task name, it has no effect on the project dates.

                      the project calculates ( in case of auto calculate mode) when we change the activity name, why, this is a waste of time specially in case of big projects with auto leveling resources (on)

                                Tasks etc on 1 and Charts on another and functionality to be able to choose what to view on each screen?

                                • Fix issue in Project where highlighting of tasks is not carried over to pdf.

                                  I receive an mpp file where the analyst uses highlighting to communicate task reality to me. Purple highlights = new task. Yellow highlights = changed/updated field. Project 2013 does not carry this highlighting completely (captures at start of page, not at end) when printing to a pdf file. I lose the attribute of the tasks when the print to pdf loses the highlighting. Please fix this so task highlights in the mpp carrys over to the pdf file when prepared.

                                  • Assign individual resources to a task from a pool of resources

                                    Pull available resources from a pool of resources. For example, I have a team of 5 technicians who can accomplish any task, but I need to know specifically which technician is assigned to each task. Organize assignments such that overall time to complete the project is minimized. A technician works their task from start to complete before being free to be assigned to another task.

                                    • Be able to establish predecessor by WPS instead of item ID.

                                      To my knowledge only ID can be used to establish a predecessor. Any other field could be used as long as it ensures non duplicated values (as the WPS). In that way, the project flow can be established based on meaningful names rather than in random numbers.

                                      • Update File Viewer app to have functionality comparible to Excel Web Services

                                        File Viewer is Project Online's answer for sharing parts/portions/whole of Excel files (or other MS documents). Unfortunately, its functionality is only a fraction of what one can customize with Excel Web Services. For example, you are unable to control the size or frame of the sharing Window. The absence of this fundamental control makes customizing the presentation of online Charts and Tables appear amateurish.
