  1. Change display name in add/remove programs

    Project Online Desktop Client is displayed as Microsoft Project Professional 2016 - en-us in the add/programs list. It would be great to rename Project Online Desktop Client differently than the standalone Project Professional 2016. Please display the correct version being installed to help differentiate the two versions and make software inventory easier to track what computer has what version of Project installed. I reported this to Microsoft as a bug and they specified it was by design. I do not know why this is by design for Project while Visio distinguishes the two (standalone and subscription) by having a different…

  2. Saving a project file as a PDF on a mapped drive causes MS Project to freeze

    MS Project freezes when trying to save a project as a PDF to a mapped drive. After trying to solve this issue the microsoft premier support informed me that this behavior is by design with following statement:

    The behavior is by design, and triggered by the latency of the connection with the Network Drive. (10ms+)

    As a workaround we need to save the PDF locally and move it to the mapped drive.

  4. timeline formatting

    Allow more formatting of timeline bar contents. Such as: alternate task names to be able to shorten from task names used on GANT view (ie. default Task Name but support an Abbreviated name in timeline bar when too short).

  5. Portuguese error there are several versions

    In the MS Project View tab, in the "Resource Views" group we have a huge translation error. Resource "Views" are described, the correct being Resource Views.

    Erro de português há várias versões

    Na Guia Exibir do MS Project desktop, no grupo "Visãos de Recurso" temos um erro enorme de tradução. Está descrito "Visãos" de recurso sendo que o correto, seria, Visões de Recurso.

  7. Subsummary bar style

    When making a double indent like

    Summary
    ---Subsummary
    ------Taskname

    The style of the subsummary is inherited from the task style. If a custom style is defined by right-click or with a custom field/flag, the style from the task is not completely overidden. Lets say the task has a full green solid bar, but the subsummary is given a black top line, result is black topline on green solid.

  8. Move multiple bars simultaneously

    This one is so simple, I'm surprised it is not the top feature request ;)

    I basically just want to be able to:

    A: Select multiple tasks, and drag them on the timeline simultaneously

    or

    B: Drag the parent task, and all the subtasks will move accordingly.

  9. Bring back Integration to Azure Devops

    The integration between MS Project and Azure Devops was very useful. While the improved Excel integration with Devops is welcome, it does not make up for the deprecation of the Devops integration with Project. Please bring the integration back!

    Getting more apps for project and task management of Project Desktop, Project Online, PWA, Project for the Web, Devops, Planner, and ToDo with less integration is the wrong direction! The right direction is a common data model for projects and tasks which can be exposed through an appropriate UI.

  10. Auto-save needed

    I have grown so accustom to my Office documents auto-saving when saved to cloud storage that I forget to manually save do this with working with Project. This has caused a lot of lost work for me.
    Remember to save should be a figment of the past.

  13. Show enterprise custom fields when not connected top Project Online

    When a project file is converted to an mpp file using "Save As" so the PM can work on it not connected to Project Online, all of the "Enterprise Custom Fields" disappear. Please make them visible even if they cannot be modified offline.

  14. Allow Timeline Task Colors to Match the colors on the Gantt Chart.

    Currently, I'm able to automatically color a task bar in the Gantt chart according to the resource group, albeit that processes could be simplified as well. When viewing in Timeline the task color is set to a light blue. It would be excellent if there was an option to set the color of the Timeline bar to match the color of the Gantt chart bar for the associated task.

  18. Import and export Bar formats

    Allow the option to copy and paste custom Bar formats, between project files, either as a copy and paste function between two project files(which isnt possible at the momnent) or as as eperate import and export function.
    Currently i have a Project template set up with the custom bar styles in but if we receive a programme from an extrenal source then I have to add these custom bar styles manully every time. Custom bar styles are used to indentify quickly different stages of a project, and to add some corperate indentity.

  19. zoom

    Enable Multi-Year Timeline Zoom

    For long-term projects it would be great to be able to zoom out further to quarters/years.

  20. Integrate MS Project with MS Teams

    It would be useful to me as the single PROJECT license owner in the company to be able to share a "read-only" view of the project with my team. This would be useful to do through a Microsoft Teams tab.
