How can we improve Project?

Add popular "S-curve" graph as a standard reports

Since all Earn Value related fields (BCWS, BCWP and ACWP) are time-phased and change according to the "Status Date" to populate a S-Curve you need to copy then to Excel and use formula to change them to percentage (by dividing to Baseline Cost).
Adding this feature will helps to avoid manual efforts, which especially is a pain in multi-year projects.

    agree to this. it is still impossible to create a decent S-Curve report without using external tools such as Excel or PowerBI.
    I believe the fields that we need are the following ("plan" fields):

    Baseline Cumulative Cost
    Baseline Cumulative Work (existing)
    Baseline Cumulative % Complete
    Baseline Cumulative Physical % Complete

    Jim, unfortunately I can't edit this, but I'm sure if Microsoft decides to implement this various type of calculation ways would be considered.
    Let's just hope more users vote for this and level this up for getting "under review"!

    Some project managers don't use Earned Value for tracking their projects. Can you add to this request the ability to create S-Curves from Baseline and Current Schedule data, based on work or duration only?
