  1. Ability to configure on project online the display of work fields in day instead of hour

    I can configure Project Professional in order to display the work in day or in hour. Project Online don't propose such configuration : it's limited to hour.

    • Ability to hide timeline in views.

      Not every detailed schedule view for a project needs a timeline and it takes up a large amount of screen space. Please provide a way to have it either show or not per view.

      For example you might want to have some project fields in one web part and the schedule items related to these items directly below

        It would be really great if you were able to rename the rows on the timesheets and control the display of them independently. This allows you to make the system much more meaningful for customers as you can tailor it for how they classify their data.

        It would be simpler for users as the names will match what they are expecting to use to categorise their time. Currently its very restrictive and you end up having to use standard rows for other purposes e.g. Actual = Billable, Overtime Non Billable = At Risk so that you can correctly classify time…

        • Make the currency project setting editable in PWA

          The currency project setting can only be edited in the options of the project client. It is possible to change it via the API, but it needs some extra coding. International customers like to edit the currency directly in the PDP in order to avoid providing everyone with a Project Pro license or spend money on development

              • I'm seeing Project 2016 Professional crash when opening project files from Project Server on Office 365 hosted by Microsoft. How to report?

                The only message from Project is that is had qo quit and then it says something to the affect "wait while information is captured". meantime, I can't open the file anymore. I suspect the bug has something to do with master/sub-projects with predecessors and success across the projects. But I can't be sure. No error messages reported. Seems like there ought to be a way I can report the flaw to Microsoft in an effective way so that the bug can be swatted out!

                    • Ability to Temporarily Disable Workflow Controlled Fields

                      Workflow required fields prohibit the ability to “skip” projects to workflow stages, such as Complete or Canceled, because projects will stop in stages where fields are required. This essentially eliminates the benefit of the skip to stage feature.

                      It would be great to give administrators the ability to temporarily disable workflow controlled fields in order to skip projects to a specified stage.

                      • PWA not available after customizing quick launch

                        PWA not available after customizing quick launch

                        After accidentally adding an invalid link like "/default.aspx" to the quick launch navigation, the whole pwa doesn't respond any more.
                        My solution was to first deactivate QuickLaunch with SharePoint Designer, then correcting the link via PWA Settings and finally reactivating the quick launch.
                        This big was fixed recently for Project Server 2013, but seems not yet to be fixed in Project Online.
                        It would be nice if the quick launch would be more fail-safe.

                        • Solve the Laman Projek EPT project site situation

                          As described here:
                          https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/3d7e0ca2-e65b-461b-b637-000725862644/create-a-new-ept-project-site-template-reverts-to-laman-projek?forum=projectonline

                          If the Project Online environment has a different language setting, every EPT automatically shows the Project Site template is based on "Laman Projek". Even though the site get's created correctly this is something that's been bothering me in every implementation of PWA at clients.

                              • Reading lookup tables through Project's COM interface is too slow

                                Some custom implementations require the enterprise lookup tables to be presented in dialogs as combo boxes or tree views so I need to read them entirely. The correct way as far as I know is using the Application.GlobalOutlineCodes collection to find the OutlineCode object for the field whose lookup table I want, then using the LookupTable property of that which is a collection that I can iterate through in a loop.
                                But unfortunately reading values from that collection is painfully slow. No matter if I have a For Each loop or a For loop based on an integer index to…

                                  If a SharePoint site has multiple task lists deployed there is no way to select which task list Project Online will synchronise with. This limits options for creation and naming of tasks lists deployed via a template.

                                  • Allow Local Cost Override for Enterprise Resouces

                                    The current rate card of 5 cost rates per resource is not sufficient. It is not uncommon for a single resource to be assigned to multiple projects, and to have a different rate on each project. Allowing the Project Manager to apply a local rate when it varies from the default Enterprise rate would solve this.

                                      • Add capability for administrators to edit the Ribbon to hide the Planned checkbox or just disable it so it can’t be used in PJO.

                                        PJO users keep entering their time in the planned hours rather than actual hours on their timesheets. We have sent out instructions to users on how to change their view, but with hundreds of users, it would be easier as an administrator to have the capability to hide this from our users.

                                          I think is very usefull thing. Have a report where we can see the percentage of use from all work resources in different time options. this is something basic to take rigth decissions.
