    • Mind map view

      I would like to see a mind map view of project's tasks in a separate view "similar to calendar view" . It would be extremely beneficial as a visual WBS for the project. There is a moment that the project manager wants to visualize the WBS of the project, however to be still linked to the gantt chart view & calendar view. I think this is a valuable feature.

      • Agile boards in PWA

        The new agile features added to Project are good for planning. Key aspect of agile is communication in teammembers, so access to the plan/boards for team is very important.
        It can be sufficient just display the boards in project site or in PWA.

          Hi all -

          We’re planning on bringing our boards online – but we want to make sure we do it the right way for you all. We started this in the Client, and we’ll be using feedback on the Client boards features to help bring the boards to Project Online.

          Please continue leaving feedback on the Project Client boards, and we’ll let you know when this feature is available online!

        • 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:

          • Allow for "Blocks of Tasks" templates while building project schedules

            There are several scenarios where a project manager would like to just insert of pre-defined blocks of tasks into the project schedule. Each "block" could represents a set of pre-defined tasks and can be inserted into the schedule by selecting from a menu. This is very useful in iterative scenarios where a project is managed for product development for various SKUs or a Rapid Application development schedule where each block is a set of tasks for each application. The use cases are numerous.

                • Tried downloading Office365 Project trial version twice over two weeks. Couldn't get it to work. Improve?

                  Have no ideas to offer except making download (actually launching) trial version of project more intuitive and at a minimum work! Was advised to remove previous version of project and visio. Not going to happen when evaluating an evaluation version. Bottom line couldn't get it to launch. Awful user experience (and apparently not the only one complaining per tech support. Awful!!!

                      Hi Alexander!

                      How would you want to give tasks different colors? Would you want to choose this yourself, or would you want it to be programmatic?

                      Thanks for the suggestion – we’ve been investigating it a little, but would love to hear your thoughts on what you’d expect/want from this!

                    • Typo in project update status alert

                      When there is a pending update to a project and you have the project checked out, it alerts you that you should check the project in before editing it further. However, it says to "check ins" the project rather than to "check in" the project. Screen shot attached.

                      • Simplify the creation of a hammock task

                        A hammock task can be created by copy>paste special>link. But this is clunky and I don't have faith that it is actually working. I'd like the setup to be easier. For example, you should be able to define a task as a hammock, define the resource and allocation, and define a special relationship like a start-start or finish-finish for the start and end points on the hammock task. It should be easy to recognize a task as a hammock task and see it schedule.

                          • Inactivating a user in AD does not inactivate the resource in Project Online - sync does not inactivate

                            Please fix the AD sync issue we logged with support. We have an AD group that syncs with the Enterprise Resource Pool. When inactivating users in AD the sync does not inactivate them in Project Online. It works for on premise Project Server but not in Project Online. Customers are not happy since Project Managers are no longer alerted that they have inactive resources assigned to tasks in their projects. Admins do not always know who has left. This is now an extra manual step for them.

                                    • Create a better PDP page

                                      The PDP page needs a facelift its so dated and awful you cant compare to the new powerapp form or even modern sharepoint form . Create the ability for the PDP to include a form based design that can cater for a better layout

                                      • Fix the rest API's urgently and update technet

                                        Currently there is a degradation with the rest api's thanks to a sharepoint online update with NTLM auth- it would be great to communicate this first..there is a fix but to get it you'll need to escalate to a support engineer :(

                                        • Project for Mac

                                          I am an IT manager and one of the largest complaints that I receive is from our Mac users that Project is not available on the Mac platform. I believe that it would very beneficial for Microsoft to publish MS Project for the Apple Mac platform.
