    • Allow header wrapping in project center in Project 2016

      Previous versions of Project Server allowed the selection of word wrap for the headers in project center views. This feature is no longer available in the current 2016 version.

      • Dynamics 365 Operations - Projects

        Dynamics 365 Operations - Projects (AX-Projects) and Project Online: Spring Release 2017.
        We manage (WBS, Change Orders, Baselines, Schedule, Etc...) in Project Online. We collect ALL our costs with AX-Projects. For example all Time collections is done within AX-Projects with AX-Projects Activities.

        We do this because AX-Projects does not honor correctly base lining a project as per PMI PIMBOK standards. THIS IS A HUGE GAP with AX-Projects.

        Please provide EXCELENT ODATA, Common Data Model and BI Support so that we can do this more effectively share data from AX-Projects to Project Online and Create BI Dashboards to be able to…

        • Group for Project Manager to edit projects they do not "own" in SharePoint Permission Mode

          We want all Project Managers to be able to edit any project in our instance and we're using SharePoint permissions mode, but our Microsoft support team has noted this capability is not available now and to submit the idea. This can be done in Project Server Permissions mode.

          The alternative work around is to give all Project Managers Admin access or Update the Project level ECFs from Project Professional->Project menu->Project Information.

          I'm not sure why this basic permission option is not available...

          • Add Timesheet Notification Options in Manage My Alerts and Reminders

            Submitted on behalf of a client.

            Similar to task notifications, allow for timesheet notifications in Manage My Alerts and Reminders with similar (appropriate) options.

            There are currently no notifications to the Timesheet Manager when a timesheet is submitted. The only way to see this is by logging into Project Online and going to the Approvals page. This is not very user friendly and forces the user to "go see" if there are any new timesheets in the system to approve, rather than being informed that there is.

            • Enable sorting and filtering by Start1...10 and Finish1...10 fields in Project center views

              Project 2016 server PWA doesn't allow sorting or filtering of projects in Project center views by Start1...10 and Finish1...10 fields when these custom date values are rolled-up to the project level. This feature existed in 2010 PWA, please bring it back.
              -Please also fix the bug which makes these custom dates in PWA randomly disappear which in turn makes the custom gantt bars disappear too.
              -Above mentioned date fields should be also made available to the custom formula date fields.

              • Drop the ribbon altogether and discontinue use of Save/Publish/Close/Check-in.

                Drop the ribbon altogether and remove the need for Save/Publish/Close/Check-in. If I click in a field on a pdp and change something, it should save in real time.

                Atomic changes should allow for easy change review and undo feature. Saving and closing a pdp would no longer take 10 seconds. Changes made to the gantt would be internally categorized and committed instantly and would intelligently drive the use of the recalculation engine so projects don't always take 20 seconds to save/publish/check-in.

                • Admin to be notified about all failed jobs

                  In Project Online, a user can be notified about his own jobs only. It would be good to automatically notify an admin when any job fails, regardless of owner.

                  • Deep integration with Microsoft Planner

                    Imagine this: you create a task in MSProject that requires action from a task owner. You click the Link to Planner button and go through the linking process (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/brismith/2017/08/29/microsoft-planner-linking-plans-to-a-project-task/#comment-48795). But instead of just being a link to the Planner plan, you actually see the task as a card on the plan, with Task Name, Start Date, Finish Date, and Resources all being pulled from MSProject to Planner. And you can add more tasks from MSProject to Planner, each as its own card. You then add this plan to a tab on Teams, and people can go from the…

                      • Projects' publication

                        You could improve this rescue, checkin, and publication scheme.
                        It is a very fragile form in terms of maintaining the integrity of projects and difficult absorption by users.

                        • Allow to edit a Resource even the associated AD User is inactive

                          Use Case:
                          * Resource Pool syncronized with AD Azure
                          * active resource associated with user account
                          * AD user is deactivated (the user leaves the company)
                          * automatic syncronization does not set the user Inactive
                          * impossible to manually set the POL Resource to Inactive, impossible to edit it

                          Any idea to solve this?
                          Thanks

                          • [Bug] The Site Title can not be changed in Seattle Master Page in Project Server 2016

                            By default In Project Server 2016, the assigned Master Page for the PWA Instance is Seattle with Home word as a Site Title.

                            So I have tried to change the PWA Site Title through

                            But unfortunately, The new Site Title is not changed as attached.

                            By the way, The farm has been updated with the latest Cumulative update (Sept 2017) for SharePoint 2016 and looks like the issue still not solved!

                            • BUG: Baseline no Baseline

                              There is a bug of sorts. Where a baseline is set but is not displayed in the set baseline box. A pretty specific method to set the baseline but not have it appear in the set baseline box so I made a blog post about it rather than trying to put it all right here. Go to http://www.epmstrategy.com/baseline-no-baseline/ to see the full explanation.

                                The built-in reports in Project and PowerBI are of low use to my clients, so we build reports in Excel using PowerPivot model of the Assignments, Task, Resources, and Projects tables. In order to share the approach or to promote and test the dashboards, it would help to have open access to your hypothetical Contoso company's Project instance to build example dashboard solutions.

                                • Project fiscal calendars should match Project Server/Project Online fiscal calendars

                                  Our fiscal calendars don't start and end on the first and last day of calendar months. In Project Web App you can specify a 4/4/5 fiscal calendar. This makes reporting against fiscal time quite easy. Unfortunately this calendar doesn't sync with Project Desktop's calendar. In fact, there is no way to specify a 4/4/5 fiscal calendar in Project Desktop. This makes validating reports extremely time consuming for our Project Managers.

                                    • Complete Project Management Solution

                                      I don't see Project online have any option for managing additional info like process compliance, Delivery, Revenue loss, Customer escalations etc.

                                        • Planner integration: Render Planner icon also in PWA and add additional status columns in web and client

                                          It is necessary to display the planner icon also in the web. Planner is a tool for team members, so these should be able to quickly navigate to the work management area.
                                          Apart from that basic information from the Planner should flow back to Project, at least on a button click by the project owner: number of items open/in progress/late/closed, latest finish, earliest start
