  1. Way to turn a Risk into a Issue with one button

    You logged your Risk, now its an issue, with one click it creates an issue...you fill out the rest of the details and it links back to issue, date and history with it. This proves a PM did his due dilegance early on in identifying risks as well. Every time I train customers someone always asks if they can do it, I have to say sorry no easy button.

    • Accomodate an EPT for Aggregation of Project Plan based on Enterprise custom fields

      One of the downside of the solution is that you need to open a Master project with sub-Projects to have an aggregated view of Project Plans. It would be good to have a Project Type that is mainly used for aggregation. Based on a set of custom fields that can be used as aggregation criteria and a feature to generate the aggregate project plan a consolidate view of a selection of Projects can be shown.

      • Ability to Configure Timeline Callout for Project Professional and SharePoint

        Some have described the ability to see the % Complete and other fields on the callout, but I think it needs to be much more generic and configurable by project. Some projects manage by % Work Complete. Others want to see the Resource Name(s). And others might even want to see custom fields. It would be nice to be able to define the information that the callout has on it. Additionally, it would be nice for the callout information to be consistent. Users see a different set of information in Project Professional then what they see in the SharePoint site.…

        • Duplicate existing portfolio analyses

          It would be good, if one could create a new portfolio analysis based on an existing portfolio analysis in order to follow up on the evolvement of a fixed portfolio set without having to click together each time the same scenario.

          • ProjectPublished Server-Side Event vs. Queue

            We found a strange problem with Project Server's custom event handlers. A customer requirement was to extract data from the Reporting database once a project was published. The best match for this situation is apparently the ProjectPublished event which we assumed would fire after the queue has processed the Reporting database synchronization. In fact, that assumption was totally wrong.
            What we observed was the behavior of the queue makes the event almost useless. We expected that when a "Project Publish" job in the queue reaches 100%, the ProjectPublished event is fired right after that. I mean, that's what its name…

            • Dynamic timeline in the project center

              Now the project center timeline is defined by portfolio managers and only partially flexible for project managers. PM's only see projects that were added by portfolio managers and have no ability on adding a project to the timeline in project center.
              It would be useful to have a dynamic timeline that is showing the projects that are currently in the grid (based on the view that is selected)

              • Resource Management per Organizations - Project Priority utilized

                In a world of limited resources…

                Problem Statement: Customer wants to insure resources are working on the highest priority projects first until they reach capacity.

                Current OTB capability: Currently the resource availability view displays projects in alphabetical order, showing projects from the top of the list to the bottom of the graph on up.
                Proposed Change: Instead of listing them alphabetically, order them according to project priority with the highest priority project listed at the top of the list and stacking from the bottom of the chart.
                Customer now has the ability to select projects from the top of the…

                • Customization options in Power BI

                  1. Power BI does not include features to customize text such as word wrap and other features to show data table as a visualization. It will be good if it can be included.
                  2. There is a limitation to include customization of X & Y Axis to use reverse numbering instead of incremental numbering and this is only possible with excel. e.g., here is a risk / value score for a four quadrant bubble chart
                  3. Sorting options for all chart types can help and be more beneficial for all Power BI users.

                  • Timesheet rejection emails/Assignment rejection emails should include more detail

                    Currently, there are no out-of-the-box emails sent for timesheet rejections. For the existing OOTB rejection emails, include a link to the timesheet in question (for single entry mode) or the My Tasks page. Also include detailed instructions on how to remediate the rejection.

                    • Equipment Resource Type

                      In addition to the existing Work, Cost, and Material resource types in Microsoft Project, add a new resource type called Equipment. When assigning a Work resource and Equipment resource to a task, allow the PM to specify that the two resources must stay together, especially during the process of leveling overallocated resources.

                        • 1 to 1 sync of Project groups with Sharepoint groups

                          Today user in PS are synced with fixed Sharepoint groups (Admin, PM, TM, Readers) according to specific permissions they have in PS. If you add a lot of Sharepoint content to your PWA, most of the time you want to use the same groups you create in PS also to manage access to Sharepoint items (document libraries, lists, subsites, etc.).

                              • Enable the leveling engine to adjust assignment units.

                                Enable the leveling engine to adjust assignment units. For example, if two concurrent assignments conflict because one demands 50% of a resource's time and the other demands 51%, the leveling engine could adjust the units slightly so that the two assignments would total 100% units and would have only slightly increased durations. As it is now, one assignment would be moved to occur after the other assignment is finished, resulting in a grossly under-loaded resource and significant schedule slip.

                                      Currently it is not possible to enter timeentries on tasks that are coming from SharePoint TaskLists Project EPT's.
                                      If you want a complete follow up, people should be able to book time on those tasks as well
