    • Add the Option to stamp as a draft with a watermark

      Currently the only way to mark as a draft is by adding in the footer or header but if you are sharing electronically with other users they cannot see that unless they print. Add the option to stamp the document as a draft.

      • multiline Text Edit in Quick edit

        Having hundreds of Risk and Issues Logs, and custom made logs,
        It can be a pain opening each individual item and adding multi-line text.
        It would be better if it could just be pasted with the quick edit view.

        • Unexpected copy/paste behavior

          There are a number of what I feel are bugs with copy and paste in SharePoint designer and its interaction with Project Web Apps. I have encountered the following three issues:
          1. When using Ctrl-C and Ctrl-P to copy a workflow, the copied workflow appears in the list multiple times, but they are for all intents the same workflow, as I found out when I deleted one of my copies and ended up deleting all copies and the original workflow to boot.
          2. When copying and pasting parts of a workflow, if then statements with "or" logic ends up copying…

          • More reliable Recycle Bin operation

            Currently, it is possible to delete critical components of the SharePoint site (workflows that are in active use) and they completely skip the recycle bin, making it impossible to cleanly recover from an accidental deletion of such a critical component. This is compounded by shoddy copy/paste behavior within the SharePoint Designer desktop tool, which I will address in another request.
            Please ensure that when a SharePoint resource is deleted, it goes to the recycle bin, in this case, at the very least, workflows, which can be represented as a single file, should be easily recoverable upon deletion just like any…

            • SharePoint project sync timeline bar labels

              Microsoft Project 2016 synchronization to SharePoint Online No Bar Labels available in the timeline ribbon.

              The synchronization process seems to work flawlessly except for one aspect of the timeline. The timeline bar label are not taken into account during the sync'ing of the project plan to the SharePoint Online targeted Task List.

              Is there a way to enable this Project Desktop feature in the SharePoint Online ribbon and if not when do you anticipate an update to incorporate this functionality?

              • Update and Communicate With UserVoice Community

                Providing any feedback here is starting to feel like a waste of time. I haven't seen any recent feedback on any of the top ideas. With a premium product I expect to see a certain level of active development and community engagement; I see neither at the moment.

                  • Allow display of Successors column in PWA views

                    The built-in Successors column is not available to be added in PWA (browser) Project views for the Task entity. This prohibits people without the desktop client to be able to access this information and seems like a random oversight since Predecessors is available.

                    • If the status date is set, use it to define the current sprint, rather than defaulting to the current date

                      to calculate the current sprint, use the status date if it exists; the current sprint is the one that includes the status date. This brings the use of the Agile features in line with other items (move uncompleted work etc) that use the status date in pref to the current date if it exists.

                      • Allow versions for all kinds of administrative backup, e.g. Enterprise Custom Fields

                        Currently in Project Server (on premises) you can create a daily backup schedule for projects, Enterprise Resource Pool and Calendars, Enterprise Custom Fields, Enterprise Global, View Definitions as well as Category and Group Settings. But only for projects you can setup a retention policy with more than one version.

                        You have to decide whether you want a manual backup or a daily backup. Both settings are suboptimal, since with manual backup you may forget to create a backup and with daily the good version may have been overwritten if you detect the issue too late.

                        Please add the same amount…

                        • Acknowledge that people leave, and allow for global replacements of status manager and timesheet approvals.

                          e.g. when Suzie leaves the company, allow for a global replacement of status manager on any tasks that carry her name. OR when a Chris has an accident and never returns to work, allow any timesheets that have already been submitted to him but not approved to automatically transition to the new assigned timesheet approver.

                            • Release API to read and write data of Project Impacts for Business Drivers in Project Online

                              We need read and write data for Business Drivers project impacts in Project Online.

                              As far as we know, that information was available in the IProject PSI service (WebSvcProject Project.ReadProjectImpacts and Project.QueueUpdateProjectImpacts), which is now unavailable in Project 2016 and Project Online.

                              In MSDN documentation, it still says CSOM doesn't have that resource and that Driver information should be found on WebSvcDriver.Driver's PSI methods. But we could not find what we needed in there. We could actually read the Business Drivers (from OData and PSI) but not the Project Impacts associated to them.

                              • Is there anyway to deactivate rather then delete a row in a custom lookup table if you still need the old entry for past/closed projects?

                                We have entries in a lookup table in project online that change yearly. Yet we still want to maintain the current information in past projects. Is there a way to deactivate a row rather then delete so we can keep the old entry in project online. Planview has this capability but project online doesn't seem to. Any suggestions would be beneficial.

                                  Add a feature where you are able to click on either the predecessor or successor in the task form or relationship diagram and it jumps to the task that was selected.

                                  This feature would be similar to the inspect task except that it would show both the predecessors and successors.

                                    For custom fields configured to "Allow multiple values to be selected from lookup table", we would like to have the ability to select and deselect all the values.
                                    This will allow the users to select all the values without having to select each value, something like the "Select All" feature available inside Excel.

                                    • Enable a clone of last week's submitted tasks into current timesheet

                                      The requirement is to stop having to manually select the same time sheet tasks every week. The solution is to populate the latest time sheet with the tasks that were used last week.
                                      Is it possible to enable a function in PWA whereby the previous week's timesheet tasks are automatically populated in the current task? This would save hours of time manually replicating the same tasks each week.
