  1. Project fiscal calendars should match Project Server/Project Online fiscal calendars

    Our fiscal calendars don't start and end on the first and last day of calendar months. In Project Web App you can specify a 4/4/5 fiscal calendar. This makes reporting against fiscal time quite easy. Unfortunately this calendar doesn't sync with Project Desktop's calendar. In fact, there is no way to specify a 4/4/5 fiscal calendar in Project Desktop. This makes validating reports extremely time consuming for our Project Managers.

    • Send notifications ONLY for tasks that have changed

      I'm using notifications to alert my team that they've been assigned a task. I have 400 tasks and a team of 30 people. Every time I publish, all 30 people get a notification about all of their assigned tasks, which is overwhelming them and now the notifications are useless. I'd prefer to have notifications sent only for tasks that have changed during the current session.

        • Show deadline indicator also in Project Online schedule views

          The deadline indicator is not visible in the schedule views of Project Online. Only the Project client displays it. This is a drawback, as it is one of the basic features of task management.

          • Protected First Baseline

            The first Baseline a Project Manager sets should be protected in means, the Project Manager cannot overwrite this baseline without PMO approval.

            • Dynamics 365 Operations - Projects

              Dynamics 365 Operations - Projects (AX-Projects) and Project Online: Spring Release 2017.
              We manage (WBS, Change Orders, Baselines, Schedule, Etc...) in Project Online. We collect ALL our costs with AX-Projects. For example all Time collections is done within AX-Projects with AX-Projects Activities.

              We do this because AX-Projects does not honor correctly base lining a project as per PMI PIMBOK standards. THIS IS A HUGE GAP with AX-Projects.

              Please provide EXCELENT ODATA, Common Data Model and BI Support so that we can do this more effectively share data from AX-Projects to Project Online and Create BI Dashboards to be able to…

              • Enable spelling and grammar check on PDPs

                Enable spelling and grammar check on PDPs, in particular for custom fields with multiple lines of text. Today you can select the spelling language in the Format Text ribbon, but it does not flag any typos. Having a spelling and grammar check on custom fields with a single line of text would be useful as well. Today the only option seems to be downloading and installing browser freeware.

                • Group for Project Manager to edit projects they do not "own" in SharePoint Permission Mode

                  We want all Project Managers to be able to edit any project in our instance and we're using SharePoint permissions mode, but our Microsoft support team has noted this capability is not available now and to submit the idea. This can be done in Project Server Permissions mode.

                  The alternative work around is to give all Project Managers Admin access or Update the Project level ECFs from Project Professional->Project menu->Project Information.

                  I'm not sure why this basic permission option is not available...

                  • CSOM method IsMemberOf(<project security group>)

                    Add the possibility to find out through CSOM if a user (or the current context user) is a member of a given Project Sec Group (not AD or SharePoint) in order to provide a better UX with regards to e.g.: navigation or information filtering.

                    • Admin to be notified about all failed jobs

                      In Project Online, a user can be notified about his own jobs only. It would be good to automatically notify an admin when any job fails, regardless of owner.

                      • Drop the ribbon altogether and discontinue use of Save/Publish/Close/Check-in.

                        Drop the ribbon altogether and remove the need for Save/Publish/Close/Check-in. If I click in a field on a pdp and change something, it should save in real time.

                        Atomic changes should allow for easy change review and undo feature. Saving and closing a pdp would no longer take 10 seconds. Changes made to the gantt would be internally categorized and committed instantly and would intelligently drive the use of the recalculation engine so projects don't always take 20 seconds to save/publish/check-in.

                        • Projects' publication

                          You could improve this rescue, checkin, and publication scheme.
                          It is a very fragile form in terms of maintaining the integrity of projects and difficult absorption by users.

                            • Allow to edit a Resource even the associated AD User is inactive

                              Use Case:
                              * Resource Pool syncronized with AD Azure
                              * active resource associated with user account
                              * AD user is deactivated (the user leaves the company)
                              * automatic syncronization does not set the user Inactive
                              * impossible to manually set the POL Resource to Inactive, impossible to edit it

                              Any idea to solve this?
                              Thanks

                                  • BUG: Baseline no Baseline

                                    There is a bug of sorts. Where a baseline is set but is not displayed in the set baseline box. A pretty specific method to set the baseline but not have it appear in the set baseline box so I made a blog post about it rather than trying to put it all right here. Go to http://www.epmstrategy.com/baseline-no-baseline/ to see the full explanation.

                                    • Contoso OData and API access

                                      The built-in reports in Project and PowerBI are of low use to my clients, so we build reports in Excel using PowerPivot model of the Assignments, Task, Resources, and Projects tables. In order to share the approach or to promote and test the dashboards, it would help to have open access to your hypothetical Contoso company's Project instance to build example dashboard solutions.

                                      • Make Physical % Complete editable in PWA

                                        Please, make Physical % Complete editable in PWA schedule views.

                                        As observed since Project Server 2010, throughout 2013 and Online as well, tasks built-in field Physical % Complete cannot be edited. It should be possible as it is editable in Project Professional and its purpose is to enter data manually.

                                        In PWA views (access via browser) clicking on this column makes selection gray (uneditable) in contrast to for example % Complete as shown in attached screenshot.

                                        This issue has been reported before: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/projectserver/en-US/d449410d-edec-4644-a8da-e1ccfcae0ddd

                                        Regards, Bullvan
