    • Report on resource attribute "Resource requires approval for all project assignments"

      Currently the attribute for "Resource requires approval for all project assignments" is not reportable in the Project Reporting service. This attribute should be added to the 'Resources' table so that reports can be developed that only show resources that require engagements.

      • Offer feedback to users on task scheduling within Project

        For users new to MS Project it can be quite daunting to work out why tasks are 'misbehaving'. Here are some of the steps they may take:

        * Constraints e.g. Start No Earlier Than
        * Predecessors / Successors
        * Manually Schedule vs. Auto Schedule
        * Task Types
        * Fixed Dates
        etc.

        Could MS Project show some intelligent suggestions, based on context? (for example, a user repeatedly trying to enter a Finish Date for a particular task could prompt a notification stating that for this task, there is a constraint, - maybe with a 'click here to amend' or some-such). Or,…

        • Store variable for maintaining the size of the Details pane

          If you're using the Details pane and close Project the next time you open it the Details pane will default to 50% of the size of Project, regardless of how it was configured during the previous session. This falls under the category of workflow disruption.

          • Create and synchronize a list on the project site with the custom fields at the project level for use within the site in native lists and cu

            It enabled a feature that could create the list natively and when synchronized with the project schedule the structure of the fields is believed according to the custom fields of the project.

            This list would make use of project data lists from the site or workflows designed in InfoPath.

            • Add security permissions an option where it is established whether the user can delete records and documents associated with the project sit

              This would allow security groups when syncing with the project site some users belong to a group of Sharepoint where you can create and modify records or documents but can not be removed.

              Many configurations Project Server or Project Online call for greater granularity of permissions at the site level project

                • Allow required fields to be specified on creation

                  Allow required custom field values to be specified when creating a project through the CSOM.
                  At the moment it works differently than with the web services, the project is published immediately on creation, out of the requester's control, and there is no way to specify the values for the custom fields before the publish is done.
                  The only way to do it on creation is to disable all the required custom fields, create the project, set the fields, and then enable the required flag on the custom fields again. Or manage it through workflow.
                  Neither options works the same as…

                  • Recalling Approved Timesheets

                    Today a user is able to recall an approved timesheet and make amendments. This causes issue with time reporting and billing and sometimes progress reporting too. We should not allow an "Approved" timesheet to be recalled. This is a design issue.

                      Today there is no notification to the Timesheet Manager if a submitted timesheet is recalled by the resource. A notification should be provided.

                      • Additional time that is submitted against an assignment with a pending approval should not process before the pending approval is cleared.

                        If there is a pending approval request, and in the next timesheet, the user tries to submit more time against that task, any more time that is submitted against that task should not go through until the previous pending approval request is processed.

                        • Show a warning when actual work is applied outside of Must Start On or Must Finish On constraint dates

                          If Must Start On or Must Finish On is a constraint date and the actual work does not align with those constraints, the actuals work is redistributed. When this happens, show a warning that the actual work will be invalidated by the constraint types.

                          • Allow project level time sheet bookings to be approved

                            When completing task level time sheets you can setup status manager approval.

                            When allowing top level time booking (ie time burnt on a particular project) this time does not impact the plan and therefore does not get status manager or plan owner approval. The ability for this time to be approved by the PM before the time sheet is submitted would be excellent

                            • Pre populate time sheet with projects where you are on the resource pla

                              When added to the resource plan of a project this does not grant you the ability to book time to the project.
                              It would be good to be able to book time to all plans where you are on the resource plan not just those projects where you are assigned to tasks. Some people only use resource plans to drive who is working on which project and they don't add people to tasks.

                                There is a need to create a calendar for shift personnel working on the schedule shown in the figure. Schedule of exceptions is defined by the calendar. Ask the first cycle does not cause difficulties. When you enter the second cycle of exclusion conflict occurs between the first and the second exception. It is necessary to be able to use the calendars to the full.
