      • make the status manager the ability to edit its tasks in the project

        the status manager can be the resource manager and all the tasks assigned to the resource, the status manager (resource manager) must arrive to approve and publish them.

        you need to create a column for the status manager for each task so that you can select tasks belonging to different status managers (managers of resources)

        make it possible to edit these tasks by status managers
        for the possibility of delegation of task decomposition in a large project

        • Risk Flag Dynamic Indicator

          Current:
          The Risk icon (black exclamation mark in the yellow triangle) is always shown regardless of risk's status i.e. if there are risks associated with the project, the icon is displayed, regardless of Risks status - Active, Closed, etc.

          Proposed:
          It would be more useful if the Risk Flag is dynamic, based on the status, e.g. Green shown when there are active items, Red for closed items and so on. This will clearly let us know and give more visibility that if there were Risks associated, what action is required next etc.?

          • [Feature/Design Change Request] - Project Online Removing Resource, deletes the Hours in Timesheet

            As per the current behavior, the resource hours entered on all the Submitted/Approved timesheets are automatically getting deleted when the Time Approver /Project Manager removes the resource from a task in the situation where the resource is done with the task or when the resource enters time on a task he is not supposed to enter for the current time period . This is a Serious blunder as we lost history of all the hours entered by the resource so far, when the resource is deleted from the company or when the resource is removed from the task when resource…

            • Flexibility of 'Default Timesheet Creation Mode'

              Currently Project Online has a 'Default Timesheet Creation Mode' which allows you to default to task, project or no pre-population values.

              Our use case would like to see the ability to use a hybrid rather than a global toggle. For example some Projects could be set to used task, and some to use project level timesheet pre-population.

              • Importing views

                It would be great if we could import custom views from project online to Project Professional, so we can use Project PRO same as project online, so we can manage projects as we need.
                It is a big problem if we need to create views and we already have them in project online.

                • Project Work and Project Cost fields in the future releases of the desktop version

                  Having two additional fields for total project work and cost in the Project category might be convenient for user's custom calculations/reporting. Please consider adding these two fields to the future releases of the product.

                  • Integrate SharePoint Projects from Project Center with Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation

                    Dynamics 365 Project Services Automation already can save Projects as mpp files in SharePoint Online. But they feel pretty lonesome there.

                    It would be great to connect SharePoint projects from Project Center to Dynamics 365 PSA. I dont think this is yet possible according to MS-documentation.
                    We manage SharePoint projects internally through PWA/Project Center and SharePoint Project Sites, but we need the output for customers and invoicing to be done in Dynamics PSA. We need to put the projects into Customer Relation.
                    This integration would be for us THE reason to get MS Dynamics 365.

                    • Project Type does not populate in the Project Detail Pages when project is created.

                      After creating Enterprise project types, the field "Project Type" shows as "Project" in project Center and "Project Type" is blank in Project Detail Pages. Need the ability to display project type in both Project Center and on Project Detail Pages with consistent values that reflect the type project created.

                        • List of Project Detail views in PWA is not correct when using Project Permissions

                          A user that only sees a limited number of views in the Project Schedule PDP, will have the list of all views available as soon as you hand her/him "View Project Details" via Project Permissions. As soon as the user clicks on such a view, he will get a "Permission denied" error. So it is then up to the user to identify which are the "good" views.
                          The user should only get the views that he has access to

                            • Zoom feature in task list similar to zooming in Excel

                              Add the possibility to zoom in-out to show several rows for i.e. tasks in Gantt overview, similar to Excel zoom functionality. This doesn't need to affect the time-view zoom in my opinion. The purpose I try to achieve is to ease the overlook view of the project. And also, with today's screen resolution I feel you are underestimating peoples eyesight.

                              • Hide nonworking time columns in a MS Project chart or view

                                When planning a short time project, task or activity, nonworking time seems to take so much space that it diminishes all other important information. In Team Planner and Gantt Chart, for example, nonworking time columns take most of the space when following hourly precision tasks. It would be great to be able to Hide or reduce or customize nonworking time columns.

                                  If you save a project with a baseline as xml file, the baseline values are included within the xml, but not the creation date of the baseline. It would be very helpful, if the timestamp is also included in the xml header.

                                  • There should be an option/feature to restore the deleted Project from recycle bin.

                                    There should be an option/feature to restore the deleted Project from recycle bin. Because restoring a single project is not possible by Microsoft. And even so the entire site collection needs to restored to the point time which impacts the data in the other projects. Its a request to Microsoft.

                                      PWA remembers user applied changes to views, however it would be useful if there was an option for user to reset the view to the enterprise default.

                                      • Planner integration: Support multi-tenant environments

                                        The current planner integration feature doesn't support multi-tenant environments, i.e. it doesn't respect the PWA/O365 user currently logged in to Project client and the PWA instance. It takes only into account the Windows account. This is not helpful for people that have to work on PWAs of different customers as external service providers.

                                        • Allow header wrapping in project center in Project 2016

                                          Previous versions of Project Server allowed the selection of word wrap for the headers in project center views. This feature is no longer available in the current 2016 version.
