      • Resource Availability for Zero Max Units Computed using Resource Calendar

        Currently, when resources have zero max units, the resources' FTE values calculate based on seven day weeks rather than the resource calendar.

        Please change the calculation methodology to use the resource calendar.

          • task schedule avoid tasks

            I would like to see a dependency option for schedule this task which cannot happen at the same time as these other tasks. This may be for a number of reasons, but for example, there is a change freeze on an environment so no tasks for that environment can be scheduled at this time, so I want to put a task representing the change freeze, and then other activity tasks need to avoid this task.
            This the change freeze task moves then the dependent tasks could move.

                  • Build Team in Project Online / PWA - Add search field for resources

                    The Build Team page in Project Online / PWA needs a search field.

                    It is needed to help organisations with large resource pools to find resources (at least by name as a minimum) that they wish to add to project teams.

                    • Apply Task Path color coding to Relationship Diagram view to see what's driving the schedule

                      When looking at the Relationship Diagram, it's not possible to determine which direct predecessor is driving the selected task, or which direct successor is being driven by the selected task. Would be nice to apply the Task Path color coding to the Relationship Diagram so you can quickly see the driving path for a selected task.

                        • Increase Task Duration Precision to 3 Decimal Places

                          Currently, Project rounds task duration to 2 decimal places, instead of 3. This is a problem when trying to set a duration in days of 1 hr = 0.125 days. Project unfortunately cannot handle durations to 3 decimal places, so it rounds 0.125 days to 0.13 days. This causes an incorrect calculation of the total duration of tasks, as 8 tasks of 0.125 hours each becomes 1.04 days total, instead of 1.00 day.

                          If Project increases the precision for Task Duration to 3 decimal places, it can correctly handle the smallest common duration increment of 1 hour = 0.125 days.

                          • Typos / Error reporting

                            Hi there.

                            There's a typo in an error message that comes up that I wanted to report. See the attached picture.

                            Also, there should be an easier forum for reporting typos/bugs. I had to go via the Contact Us page, speak to an agent and get the link to find this page (which seems overly complicated to me). One way that does work, is the Kindle Reader whereby you can report a typo / error just by highlighting the text. Something similar would be really helpful. Otherwise, I enjoy working with MSP - I like the improvements that have been…

                              • In the time line, task names should be able to be called out (instead of the whole task)
                              • In the time line, Milestones should be able to be dragged in the middle of the time line (not only top or bottom edge)

                              • In the time line, allow to cut the timeline in the middle and not only start or end. Usefull when a single tasks last long, but need to cut the middle to shorten the whole timeline duration.

                              • 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.

                                  • 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.

                                        Project Pro > Project information > ‘Calculate Resource Utilization from’, should include the option ‘Resource Engagement until’ [date].

                                        When Microsoft introduced the ‘Resource Engagement’ feature it replaced the ‘Resource Planning’ feature before it.

                                        The idea with ‘Resource Plans’ was that high-level plans could be set in motion using this feature, then they would be potentially followed up with detailed project plans (e.g., in the manner of a ‘Rolling Wave’ approach). As such, one could set the ‘Calculate Resource Utilization from’ to ‘Project Plan until’ [date], so that the source of the projects’ resource needs could capture and report on the…

                                        • Can we get a command button for Unique ID like "go to"

                                          I like to use the "Go to" command button if your schedule was frozen. But I am constantly adding and deleting tasks and have trained to report against the Unique ID #. But the only way to get to a specific task is by filtering. It would be great to have a command button that would allow for this.
