    • Split Screen Capabilities

      Hello,
      It would be extremely beneficial to have capabilities of splitting project over 2 monitors.
      Tasks etc on 1 and Charts on another and functionality to be able to choose what to view on each screen?

      • Fix issue in Project where highlighting of tasks is not carried over to pdf.

        I receive an mpp file where the analyst uses highlighting to communicate task reality to me. Purple highlights = new task. Yellow highlights = changed/updated field. Project 2013 does not carry this highlighting completely (captures at start of page, not at end) when printing to a pdf file. I lose the attribute of the tasks when the print to pdf loses the highlighting. Please fix this so task highlights in the mpp carrys over to the pdf file when prepared.

        • Why does the project calculates ( in case of auto calculate mode) when we change the task name, it has no effect on the project dates.

          the project calculates ( in case of auto calculate mode) when we change the activity name, why, this is a waste of time specially in case of big projects with auto leveling resources (on)

            • Assign individual resources to a task from a pool of resources

              Pull available resources from a pool of resources. For example, I have a team of 5 technicians who can accomplish any task, but I need to know specifically which technician is assigned to each task. Organize assignments such that overall time to complete the project is minimized. A technician works their task from start to complete before being free to be assigned to another task.

              • About a function for the Task type in Project Web App

                I would request that a “Task type” field setting, which is provided as a specific function in Project client, could be available for Project Web App as well.

                • Be able to establish predecessor by WPS instead of item ID.

                  To my knowledge only ID can be used to establish a predecessor. Any other field could be used as long as it ensures non duplicated values (as the WPS). In that way, the project flow can be established based on meaningful names rather than in random numbers.

                  • Update File Viewer app to have functionality comparible to Excel Web Services

                    File Viewer is Project Online's answer for sharing parts/portions/whole of Excel files (or other MS documents). Unfortunately, its functionality is only a fraction of what one can customize with Excel Web Services. For example, you are unable to control the size or frame of the sharing Window. The absence of this fundamental control makes customizing the presentation of online Charts and Tables appear amateurish.

                      • Provide Global columns that can be set/seen in Planning/Resource/Task views.

                        I have an MSP Project containing 5 other projects. When I go to the Resource Usage it is not possible to see the Text columns from one View in another View. Could we please have a tick box against each Text column that identifies it as a global reference column?

                          • More configuration option for Enterprise custom fields

                            The Enterprise custom fields should have more options to put some validations on the fields like having some character limit on text fields, date validation on date fields, cascaded drop down options for look up fields etc.

                            • Workflow Tasks and Project Tasks (Activities/Assignment) status update for approval should be in same Approval page

                              Currently any approval tasks created using workflow (Project Server workflow) are placed in the Workflow Task list and the status update sent for approval are placed in the Approvals page.
                              Ideally these two should be placed in one Approvals page.

                              • Support 'Sprints' Master Projects

                                I have a created a Master 'Sprints' (type) project, and two sub-'Sprints'-projects, all with tasks. The Task Board view in the Master project only shows the tasks which are in the Master project itself, and won't display the tasks from the sub-projects.

                                I can view all of the tasks from the Master and sub-Projects via the Gantt chart and other views, but not in any of the Sprints (Task Board) views.

                                  • Make Project Online a cohesive project management product.

                                    Instead of loosely linking multiple different Microsoft products together please reimagine Project Online as a cohesive PM platform that fully includes the features these other products offer. When look at products like Jira I see all of the features that are representative of different Microsoft products, Planner, VSTS, Project, Teams, SharePoint, the only difference is in Jira they are tightly knitted together to make a functional product.

                                    • Users should be able to flag tasks with no specific end date as "ongoing"

                                      There are tasks that are "ongoing" in nature. These can not be flagged as such in MS Project, forcing PMs to either leave the End Date blank or wrongly inputting an End Date.
