How can we improve Project?

Have true entity modified dates in the Odata API feeds

With the update for modified dates in all entities in the Project Online OData API, it would be good if these dates were true modified dates. For example, if a project is published with no changes to any tasks, only the Project Modified Date should update but today all of the Task Modified Dates get updated too and match the project modified date. Changing to true entity modified dates would enable delta sync from Project Online OData to a SQL Database.

        +1 limit the amount of data to be sync is a huge requirement when the size/number of the project plans is growing.

        I agree with this as else delta retrival mechanisms won't work as expected and always the full project will be pulled. Especially when it comes to timephased data in big projects this becomes cumbersome.
