  1. Add column last active in 365

    Perhaps this could work in stead of the "Last Connect to Project online"

    Please add a column when a user is logged on the Office 365 portal.
    This should be in a list with all the resources, so you can see all the last connected dates at once.

      • Allow PM's to add exception days to their project in addition to the Enterprise Calendar's exception days

        It is currently only possible to inherit exception days from an enterprise calendar, however PM's often find it useful to add additional Exceptions days such as 'Team building' or just times when no project work will take place.

          • Bring Power BI and Excel Web Services into Government cloud so that reports can be dynamic.

            These feature are available commercially. There's no published timeline for bringing these into compliance for Government.

              • Milestone checklists

                Make it possible to associate (link) checklists with milestones.

                Milestones are often used to indicate a decision point in a project. Predefined checklists are used to list prerequisites for milestone approval. The ability to associate checklists with milestones would support this scenario.

                      • Timesheet lines based on Assignment Owner

                        By now, with changing the assignment owner of an assignment, it can be controlled on which resource's Tasks sheet the assignment pops up.
                        Unfortunately when using Timesheets, even in Single Entry Mode, the assignment does not show up in the timesheet of the selected assignment owner.

                        • Add a flag (per site collection) so that users can choose whether HTML tags should remain in the ODATA feed

                          The removal of HTML tags in the ODATA feed has had severe implications for custom reports which relied on these tags in order to preserve the formatting entered into Enterprise Custom fields displayed on PDPs. Is it possible to provide a way to select which fields in the ODATA field have the HTML tags removed, or failing this, to allow the admin to decide at Site Collection or PWA instance level.

                          • 'Overallocated' Flag not set at Task Level

                            Hello, the ToolTip against the 'Overallocated' Flag states: "Indicates whether *any* of the assigned resources on a task is assigned to more work *on the task* ... than can be done within the normal working capacity". However, even though this Flag is set for the Resource at Task level -- even if there is only one Resource against the Task -- it is not set at Task Level. This makes filtering at Task-level in the Gantt impossible...

                            The second a single Task Resource is Overallocated, then that Task obviously has "assigned resources ... assigned to more work on the task…

                              Improvements to other Timephased DataSets have been extremely helpful. I would like to see similar efforts applied to the Engagements Timephased dataset as it is a pain to manually refresh!

                              • A Common issues / errors cause list availability

                                Based on live experience of the escalation teams Microsoft could provide a common causes list regarding synchronisation and publish errors.
                                This allows for
                                - a more robust template setup
                                - easier user training and first line support
                                - less calls to MS service centre

                                • Provide support for backup and restore of a single project

                                  Back in the day, in Project Server, there used to be a feature that allowed Project Managers to backup their Projects at a stable state, make as many changes as they want, and in case things go south, restore the project from its previously backed up state.

                                  Can we please have that functionality for Project Online? This is Microsoft cloud after all. How difficult can a backup be?

                                  • For status manager, be able to reject only one day of a timesheet line.

                                    When a status manager received an approval request, he has to approve or reject the entire timesheet line.

                                    Sometimes, only one day creates problem but the only way to inform the user is to reject the full line and to type a comment.

                                      When creating a project from a SharePoint tasklist EPT, it should be able to use a enterprise template like other EPTs. The template tasks should be used to create the initial task in the list.

                                      • Since you have now added Status to the TimeLine view, can you include a bar for baseline information?

                                        Since you added the capability, not yet in full production, of putting status information on the Timeline view, can you also allow the user the ability to include Baseline information. Giving the user the ability to select bar styles in the Timeline view, like we do in the Gantt Chart, would be a great help.

                                        • Project Publish and OLAP Cube Building Performance Improvement

                                          If I create reports end of month and I have to make any changes to the plan, I have to wait that all changes are published and the cube is built again. This is a tedious and lengthy process that really kill my performance and wastes a lot time. Please improve the performance!
