How can we improve Project?

Show Hijri Date in Project Center / PDP

In the Middle East, we can't show the Hijri Date in Project Center (Project Server 2010/2013/2016 with Arabic Language Pack) for the following:

1. Start Date, End Date, End Date and custom field with date type in PDP.
2. Timeline Date.
3. Gantt chart.

If we changed the calendar regional setting in site setting, and go back to Project Center We got the below error:

"Sorry, something went wrong
This feature requires either a Gregorian calendar or a calendar that uses a Gregorian recurrence pattern.

Make sure your calendar is correctly set in:

Also, check with your administrator to update the calendar in:

Unfortunately, it's not acceptable from our Arab clients, they want to show their Project List in Project Center with Hijri Date.

Does it make sense that a big product like Project Server didn't support Hijri Date?! Usually, we hear this sentence alot and we totally agree!

By the way, we can display the Hijri Date via Microsoft project but it's not an acceptable workaround, the customer wants to show his project list in Project Center with Hijri Date without opening each project one by one.

We can also customize custom reports via SSRS or whatever, but in this case, what's the value of Project Center with the customer who needs to use Hijri Date and Arabic MUI in Project Server.

I think this feature is very important to all Microsoft Arab customers around the world. We wish to be applied soon.
