  1. Want to hide the resource units and project cost totals options from external users

    We have to ask external users to create projects, but we don’t want to disclose our cost details. So, it would be great if we can hide the resource units and project cost totals options from external users. Currently, if we assigned Project Plan 3 license of our tenant to external users, they can view resource units from their Project client when adding a new view.

  3. Allow linking of sub projects to master projects across share point sites.

    Allow linking of sub projects to a master project on SharePoint sites. This would allow task list on a custom front end ans set of security rules all while being able to aggregate information to a front end. Very powerful!!!

  4. When a comparison report fields are text not numeric

    When a comparison report is generated, fields which are numeric the original programme are converted into text fields in the comparison report. The end result is that if an attempt is made to filter on the durations field for instance, no numerical filtering can occur on need text filtering. This is a major nuisance

  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.

  8. The format task path function could be aligned with a filter

    The format task path function could be aligned with a filter, so that only the predecessors or successors can be seen. This is available in other competitors such as Asta power project. Or at least allow these to be flagged manually

  11. Restore Checkboxes to Predecessors / Successors

    For a brief time, I had a magical version of Project (2016, 16.0.11328.20144) that included checkbox functionality when clicking in the Predecessor / Successor columns. It was incredibly helpful to be able to simply select the tasks from a list, rather than having to remember the IDs or write them down. PLEASE restore this! I had to upgrade to MPP and am missing this feature like crazy.

  12. Link ADO Start and Target Dates to Project Start and Finish Dates

    The "Team" plugin allows users to export Azure DevOps work items into Excel and Project. Exports into Excel include Start and Target dates from ADO, yet the exports into Project do not. Other fields such as Iteration Path export perfectly. Start and End dates are the most fundamental project/work/task management data elements....can we please add them to the export for Project to achieve parity with Excel?

  13. 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.

  14. Provide an option button that will 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Improve Bar Styles Formatting

    Improve the bar formatting.


    1. Allow bar formatting settings to be exported to other project files.

    2. Allow a simpler system where codes are not required, but an interface allows simpler options to those of us who are not code-savy.

    3. Allow bar styles to be easily copied and modified.

  19. 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

  20. Prevent project client from overwriting lookup table values

    If the project client is open while an administrator adds a NEW lookup table value to a project (in pwa), the value will be overwritten when the project is opened and published. Happens in every version of project / pwa. In a large shop it is impossible to ensure that all project managers have the project client closed while you are making lookup table updates.
