  1. Release Home and Roadmap for PWA in Project Server 2016

    Currently, I have Project Server but I don't get the new features offered with Project Online like (automatic friendly project IDs, Home and Roadmap integration). 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.

      • Allow task type to be changed for manually scheduled tasks

        Currently, task type of manually scheduled task is disabled yet it affects the calculation of the work, duration or units. Though manually scheduled is for represent task with high level vague information, allow task type to be editable will help schedulers to choose the right task type and there by help in providing details about the work, duration and resources.

              • Planner in Roadmap

                Project Roadmap allows portfolio managers to bring in key tasks from Azure Boards and Projects in PWA.

                Planner is used for small, ongoing projects. Please include support to add tasks from Planner to Roadmap as this gives Portfolio managers a better view of all key information in a single screen

                • Earned Schedule support in Project

                  Project supports EVM. EVM has not been used to estimate the time to completion or forecast end date. EAC calculation in Project assumes SPI is 1. Extension of EVM is Earned Schedule. ES provides provides parameters to measure the schedule performance of a project in time

                  • More user control and enhanced features for Timeline and Gantt Charts

                    I struggle with the Timeline formatting features -- the some that we have a good, but i would like to be able to manipulate the size of the diamonds, setup styles to handle the formatting of milestones on the timeline, have the option to display a summary task with start and finish dates -- without displaying both dates -- so attach it to the timeline using just the start date, or just the finish date, and be able to edit the task's text on the timeline without changing the tasks's name in the table. I would like to easily save…

                    • Timesheet settings to allow pre-population for projects AND tasks

                      Timesheet settings can be configured so that timesheets are auto populated for current projects or for current task assignments.

                      It would be great to have the option to select BOTH current projects and current task assignments.

                      We have some projects that rely on project assignments and other projects that rely on schedule task assignments. We picked timesheets to be pre-populated by current projects. As a result, the members of projects that rely on task level time reporting have to manually add the tasks to their timesheet every week. This manual effort could have been eliminated if we could select both…

                        • 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.

                            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.

                              • Minimum decimal places shall be increased to atleast 4.

                                the decimal places provided as 2 as maximum shall be increased to atleast 4. our projects deal with resources in millions and the no of resources(due to round off) causes significant change in cost of entire project. I use microsoft project professional. I have project server access also.

                                    I'm tracking the time of my team with Toggl. I'm managing all of our projects and ressources with MS Project. Within MS Project I have tasks and subtasks and want to see the progression bar of the task change when people add a new time entry in Toggl. I look with Zapier, but no integration available yet.

                                      Train support technicians properly, recently one guy said "you have a lot of tasks, this might be an issue" I had 400 tasks ! He also said "oh you have a lot of links as well!" There were an average of 3-4 per task. I asked him if there was a limit he did not know. My question here is "is there a limit "

                                      • trigger Project Online (PWA) email reminders manually or change when the reminders are issued by the server

                                        when I publish a plan, I want to be able to trigger email reminders immediately on an ad-hoc basis.

                                        provide a facility in settings for a way of triggering task reminders manually for a user or a project or between dates or just send all reminders now?

                                        • '%Physical Complete =100%' then stop Task Email Reminders (URGENT)

                                          When a task is complete in less time than baselined (budgeted) or less than Work, provide someway of stopping email reminders for tasks that are not 100% complete.

                                          When a resource sets '%Physical Complete to 100% then stop the email reminders for that task.
