    Unable to use Calendar View the same way as in Outlook with simple drag and drop.
    Some smartie pants decided to cripple it...
    Please be kind to your user base.

      In the era where everyone is on the move, there should be Mobile app for MS Project Online as well - to do simple task like task update, view project summary etc.

      • Modify Project Online Home Page

        New Project Online Home Page which was announced few months ago and which was rolled out recently ( https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/projectsupport/2018/07/19/project-online-new-home-page-for-users/ ) is providing interesting capability of having a list of projects from multiple PWA instances at a single place, however it is not providing necessary capability of Project Online "landing" page expected by end users.

        Current issues of Project Online Home Page from user perspective:

        - Home page contains "Create Project" button which is not working if user has no rights to create projects in "default PWA", our users are trying to use this button and they are getting errors.

        -…

          • Defualt Time Sheet Approver to Manager in AD Interface

            When resources are interfaced with Active Directory allow the time sheet manager to default to the Manager field in Active Directory. This will save resource managers the hassle of assigning this in most cases.

              • Provide "undo flavors"

                Sometimes you need to undo only "data" changes (e.g. changes to duration or start date) and don't want to undo changes you've made to the view (e.g. columns, sorting, etc.). Provide the ability to undo "data changes only" or "view changes only" or "all changes (data and view)".

                • Allow Project Managers to delete their own projects within PWA

                  Users with Project Manager role in PWA (leveraging Project Permission Model) cannot delete projects within PWA. They PMs have to do a workaround with Project desktop client and its clunky.

                  • User specific Timeline functionality in Project Center Page

                    Is there a way Timeline functionality can be displayed based upon individual user choice? Right now I believe if a Portfolio Manager or Project Manager add his projects from Portfolio "A" to the timeline in Project Center, the Projects selected in the timeline is available for all portfolio & project managers to see even though they may not desire to see projects from Portfolio "A" . This becomes rather cumbersome when there are multiple project & portfolio managers (10+) using a single server.

                      Calendar view item interaction in Project needs to be identical to Outlook. Rescheduling and time expansion is essential to be done via simple drag and drop.

                        • Administrative projects: split between billable and non-billable

                          When filling in the timesheet in PWA, for administrative projects there is no "non-billable". Can it be added in the timesheet for administrative projects?

                          • Allow billable and non-billable fields in Microsoft Project Professional

                            In the timesheet in PWA, I can split the actual work between billable and non-billable. When I try to see that detail in the Microsoft Project Professional, view use by task or by resource, I only see the actual work (equals billable + non-billable), but I do not see the detail as PWA (billable and non-billable)

                            • Allow team members to report progress in a 3-weeks view

                              We ask our project engineers to report progress on their tasks and give a forecast for the next 2 weeks.
                              Because of this we do not use timesheets but ask them to report in my tasks.
                              This means: Actuals for this week (what have I done) and what will I do in the upcoming 2 weeks. Besides that: what will be the ETC (in hours or days).
                              My Tasks does not support a fixed screen of 3 weeks. See the attached screenshot
                              Besides this please combine this screen with timesheets: so the user can see his or her planned days…

                                    Most of our clients want to register the project steering board members and possibly other stakeholders on a PDP. Not just by entering their name free format in a text field, but by selecting a name from the AD. This field excists in SharePoint, so why not in Project Online?

                                      • Bilingual Custom Fields

                                        When creating new custom fields for Project details page, we should be able to choose an English title and a title for any other language if users will be bilingual. For example, Canada has two official languages and some users might work in English, others may prefer to work in French.

                                        Currently we can switch languages and the pre programmed titles on the PDP change to the correct language, whereas any custom field, will just remain as is.

                                        • PWA Online - Project Center - Allow In Line / Grid Editing

                                          We have cases where we need to update values for 100+ in custom fields in the project details page, and our current options are:
                                          1. open every project to update the value in one or more fields
                                          2. Use BulkEdit which has limitations, e.g. not all fields are editable

                                          We are looking In Line / Grid Editing when in Project Center, which is fairly common in other applications now.
