    • Close button in Project Online behaves inconsistent

      Currently the Close project button in the ribbon of Project Online will close the project and navigate the user to the previous page outside of the Project Detail Pages.

      The majority of the time this will navigate the user back to the Project Center.

      However if the user opens a project from project center, then visits the project site, and then navigates back to the project, the user expects the close button will return them to the Project Center, instead it navigates them back to the project site. This results in a poor and inconsistent user experience.

      The close button…

      • Resource Availability for Zero Max Units Computed using Resource Calendar

        Currently, when resources have zero max units, the resources' FTE values calculate based on seven day weeks rather than the resource calendar.

        Please change the calculation methodology to use the resource calendar.

        • add/update the lag through client code

          please add the ability to add a lag to a tasklink. This is not available and not possible in PSI for project online. We have many times fallen short of a project online solution because this is missing.

          Others have had the same issue for years as well - https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/6386b55a-4a6c-4f13-b778-beb4faf8fc20/setting-lead-lag-on-a-predecessor-using-csom?forum=project2010custprog

          • Change the ability to remove "Sorry, you don't have a license to use Project Web App." error in GUI rather than powershell

            When configuring Project Online the application constantly returns an error. Will you please change the ability to remove "Sorry, you don't have a license to use Project Web App." error to be performed in GUI rather than PowerShell

                  • Show deadline indicator also in Project Online schedule views

                    The deadline indicator is not visible in the schedule views of Project Online. Only the Project client displays it. This is a drawback, as it is one of the basic features of task management.

                        • persian calendar in MS project 2016

                          recently you added Persian calendar (jalali,hijri shamsi) to windows 10
                          it would be great that you add it to office and project 2016
                          lack of this feature in project make it almost impossible to use for us in iran and those that use Persian calendar
                          thank you

                          • Show proper message when opening Project when acting as delegate

                            Show a proper descriptive message when opening Project when acting as delegate.

                            Right now when someone starts Project while acting as a delegate, a message pops up saying "Project was unable to establish a connection with <pwa>", which is highly confusing to new users.

                              • Provide a means to enter and track project change similar to issues and risks

                                When a project has a change, for example, a scope change, schedule change or a change in approach, the project manager needs a place to document that change and typically seek approval from the project stakeholders. I would like to see a place to enter and manage changes similar to how project online offers a means to track issues and risks. Like risks and issues, the change would have a summary/title, a description of the change, a status (proposed, approved), a date stamp and preferably a way to seek approval for the change from one or more stakeholders. Being able…

                                    • task schedule avoid tasks

                                      I would like to see a dependency option for schedule this task which cannot happen at the same time as these other tasks. This may be for a number of reasons, but for example, there is a change freeze on an environment so no tasks for that environment can be scheduled at this time, so I want to put a task representing the change freeze, and then other activity tasks need to avoid this task.
                                      This the change freeze task moves then the dependent tasks could move.

                                      • Include $ in Project Name Validation

                                        When creating a new Project in Project Online there is validation rules to prevent the use of special characters in the Project Name.

                                        An issue was found in the default Project Site URL when the Dollar Symbol ($) was used in the Project Name and this symbol should be added to the validation checking to prevent these issues in future.

                                        • Audit Changes to Project Fields and other PWA Components

                                          Need a way to enable auditing of the changes that happen on all project components (i.e. Project type Enterprise Custom Fields, Resource Plan, Strategic Impacts, Lists in Project Sites, etc.).
                                          This would be applicable to saves not just publishing.
                                          The date of the action and the user that performed the action should be available.
                                          This should be available for reporting.
