  1. Modern Guest access experience for Project SharePo

    Please upgrade the guest access experience to be inline with other SharePoint Sites to allow sharing via an authentication code when the person doing the sharing is part of a Project Web App synchronised group. At the moment this still generates a link with the old sharing experience that requires the guest to create a Microsoft Account

    • Save properly

      Even though the screen says the changes have been saved you later find out, after exiting, that it hasn't saved at all and you have just lost hours of work. What the **** is going on!!

          • timeline- Remove all project at once

            Remove all projects timeline button- if multiple projects are added to PWA Project center timeline and there is a need to cleanup the timeline, PWA Admin must do remove from timeline for each project. Having an option to clean up all would help.

            • persian calendar in MS project 2016

              recently you added Persian calendar (jalali,hijri shamsi) to windows 10
              it would be great that you add it to office and project 2016
              lack of this feature in project make it almost impossible to use for us in iran and those that use Persian calendar
              thank you

              • Please add views to extract enterprise calendar data

                currently it is not possible to get data from the enterprise calendar such as public holidays.
                This constrains integration and extra cross checks.

                • Add a 'Submitted' field in oData when using Task Entry (not Timesheets)

                  For some key business reasons, we do not use the Timesheet function. However, we would like the ability to know when Task Updates are submitted for weekly periods to be included in the oData so that we can report on submission (versus having to wait for approval from the Status Managers.)

                    • Support for Arabic language in Lookup Table Custom Field in Project Server 2016 / 2013

                      Problem

                      The search in Arabic in Lookup Table Custom Field is not working properly in Project Server 2016 / 2013.
                      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                      Scenario

                      In Project Server 2016 / 2013, I tried to create a lookup table with Arabic Entries by doing the following:

                      - Go to PWA Settings.
                      - Below Enterprise Data, Click on Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables.
                      - Scroll down to Lookup Tables for Custom Fields.
                      - Create a new Lookup Table with Text type.
                      - Add Arabic Entries.
                      - Go back to create a custom field that will get the data from the created lookup table.

                      • Consistent entry from web app or desktop client

                        When creating a new project, the process is slightly different depending where it is created.

                        If created with the desktop client, we don't have the ability to specify the project owner.

                        If created with the web app, we don't have the ability to change the status manager.

                        We require more consistency, especially as we leverage project coordinator roles more.

                        • Can we apply the protected actuals settings department wise

                          The protected actuals feature ( Server Settings-->Task settings and display-->Only allow task updates via Tasks and Timesheets.

                          This selection gets applied to all the projects for all the departments using the system. There can be a scenario where one department would like to use the timesheets and capture the actuals in project schedule accordingly. And if there is another department which does not want to use timesheets but want to enter actuals in project schedule manually for ex:by updating the % complete, then this department project owners can not be in a single PWA because the protected actuals settings will…

                          • Add Timesheet Notification Options in Manage My Alerts and Reminders

                            Submitted on behalf of a client.

                            Similar to task notifications, allow for timesheet notifications in Manage My Alerts and Reminders with similar (appropriate) options.

                            There are currently no notifications to the Timesheet Manager when a timesheet is submitted. The only way to see this is by logging into Project Online and going to the Approvals page. This is not very user friendly and forces the user to "go see" if there are any new timesheets in the system to approve, rather than being informed that there is.

                            • Keep history of generic resources engagements requests

                              In resource engagement process PM normally sends out an engagement request for a generic resource (developer, tester, engineer, etc) which then replaced with a named resource by resource manager. The information on what was the initial generic resource request is lost.
                              Please add an additional field for engagement request where the initial general resource name is kept.
                              This will help to estimate the demand of generic resources. Often named resource can play multiple roles and can be assigned to different generic resources requests, so there is no 1 to 1 relationship between named resource and generic ones to build a…

                                  I was trying to use jsom to update status manager on a project schedule, i have discovered there is no such a method in the PS.js documentation but i found a method called set_statusManager on the pj.js.debug file,

                                  can you please give us an example of how to use this method, because I couldn't get it to work since there is no documentation on it.

                                  Thank you
