  1. Ability to hide rows within Project as per Excel

    It would be beneficial to be able to hide rows rather than needing to either deleting or making inactive

  3. Enable Phases and Stages project lifecycle management through Flow

    Enable Phases and Stages project lifecycle management through Flow.

    To be able to decommission current SharePoint Designer Workflows and adopt the new Project service,new Flow connectors should be in place in order to manage project's lifecycle as currently with the classic workflow service.

  4. Risks and Issues

    Adding the option of Risks and Issues directly to schedule tasks. Project manager would be able to follow Issues and Risks in real time. See attachments below.

  5. Discussion

    Adding the option of Discussion directly to schedule tasks. The idea is to create discussion in the schedule and link it to Discussion on the project website. Team members would be able to write their own comments and project manager would see the discussion in the schedule.

  6. Attach files to a task in a couple of clicks

    Easy document attachment upload to Shared document (library on the project website). This will allow to link documents with tasks in the schedule.
    So far, they are not connected.
    User has to enter full URL address to custom field, but the URL address is not working in the PWA.

    There are other products in the market place with this functionality.

    after running a project comparison. The default Gantt chart view appears with "timeline" chosen even though I have ticketed this in master file. It is a nuisance and I then have to turn it off in THREE views.!!!!!!

  11. Details customizable

    on the details pull up, it would be extremely helpful to be able to customize what fields you need to see. for example on the pred and suc details view, being able to see the name of the pred as well as their start and finish dates would be hugely helpful to see what is pushing a current task. I'd also recommend being able to view the entire length and not just a small quarter of the bar.

  12. Have option on recurring tasks to track project or parent end dates.

    Have option on recurring tasks to track project or parent end dates.

    For example for a recurring task that is weekly meetings throughout project, have options, instead of hard set start and end dates, to select start and end dates of project that will auto track those dates as the project is updated rather than having to back to recurring tasks and manually update.

  13. Provide an intermediate overallocation threshold and status indicator

    Resource overallocation in MS Project currently has two states: (1) overallocated, and (2) not overallocated. Please provide an intermediate overallocation state, based on user-defined threshold limits, such +/- 10% of a given resource's Max. Units percentage. This intermediate state could have its own corresponding indicator: along with the famous red person symbol for overallocation, there could be an orange or yellow person to show that the resource is within range of being a genuine overallocation concern.

    This functionality would eliminate instances where a resource is flagged as overallocated when they are somehow scheduled for a tiny fraction of an hour…

  14. Improve handling and reporting of resource overallocation on completed tasks

    We have noticed that MS Project continues to identify resource overallocation even for tasks that are 100% complete, some of which have been complete for several months. Is this a bug, is there an underlying purpose for this? The only reason this information might be useful is perhaps for developing year-on-year resource capacity and demand comparisons.

    Our recommendation is that when an overallocated task is marked 100% complete, change the overallocation indicator to a "greyed-out" state, which would allow the end user to recognize that an overallocation did exist when the task was open, but it no longer exists now…

  15. Provide an option button that prevent MS Project from automatically recalculating task duration

    Please provide an option button that allows the end user to clearly and unambiguously prevent MS Project from automatically recalculating schedule tasks when it detects apparent conflicts with resource assignments and/or a resource calendar. This is normally accompanied by a notification pop-up that states "The resource is assigned outside the original dates for task [ID] [Description] ... The duration of this fixed duration task will change to accommodate the resource assignment." (Sometimes, though, this notice does not appear, which is even more troubling.)

    We believe that this is a bug that is causing false-positives to occur, primarily because the error…

  16. Enable Team Members to use Planner to update their tasks

    Use Case: We use MS Project Online to manage a large portfolio of projects for a state government entity. We have multiple team members working on-site and remotely across a variety of professional disciplines and functional domains, using both agile and traditional methods to manage their work.

    We want team members to be able to report their Actual Work against their tasks with a familiar, friendly user interface, such as the UI provided through Planner (and with Planner's integration with Teams).

    I know we could use Project Online's Timesheet and/or Tasks pages to enable team members to update their tasks,…

  18. Format driven tasks in FILTER FILTER FILTER

    The format show driven predecessors or successors, is a great idea and of great assistance. However in order to trace these which may be spread out amongst thousands of activities, the only way is manually. Here is my idea be able to filter on driven predecessors or successors. This is available in most other software which does scheduling this

  19. The search function in this forum is to broad

    This forum needs a more focused search function for instance if i enter "compare projects" which is an option in Project this forum finds EVERYTHING with "compare" or Projects" which gives 1000 of irrelevant results.
    if you want people to give feed back then make it easy for them with an advanced search function with Boolean such as Compare AND Projects of allow the use of Qutoation around grouped phrases such as "Compare Projects"

  20. "Compare projects"

    After carrying out a comparison report the view which opens up includes timeline. Timeline is no use for me because most of my projects are very long. I would prefer if it opened up with the view that was used at the start of the comparison. It would also help if somebody responded to this request. I know you have thousands
