  1. Allow icons as drop down values so that it can be copied directly into a presentation rather than having to convert text to icons in ppt.

    We have RAG status in use for milestones and have chosen a manual approach to get subjective opinion of PMs as to their milestones status. Current solution is a Lookup and it converts the text to an icon (Red, Amber, Green, Blue circle). We have created views and reports for Milestones in MS project that we copy into PPT to use in presentations. When copied over of course we can only see the original text, not the icon itself, which forces us to spend extra time on converting text to icon in ppt. How can this be done differently? Can…

    • New Task Type Required for 'Fixed Work and Duration'

      There is a need for a ‘Fixed Work and Duration’ Task Type setting. This is required on construction projects to allow simple adjustments to both budget and forecast labour hours and duration without having to change Task Type settings.

      Schedules on construction projects typically use budgeted labour hours estimated in another tool that need to be imported into Project to forecast labour requirements. In order to populate these Work hours against activities, you need to change all your tasks to Fixed Duration and then insert Work hours otherwise it will change the Duration. Once this is done you need to…

      • Please add a Fiscal Year option when selecting a drop down date format.

        When running reports and selecting views it would be helpful ( e,g, in timelines) to show a fiscal year view when you have projects that cross fiscal years.

        • In Project center it is very difficult to search and identify projects from large list.

          • Add as a new version to existing files

            The option to "Add as a new version to existing files" only appears when using the Documents webpart on project sites, not when in the Documents library itself (unless in classic mode). Please add this in both locations - and as a default behavior for windows explorer/drag drop when the library is synced using OneDrive for Business.

              • When a timesheet Manager is changed on a resource record, any outstanding submitted timesheets should be rerouted to the new Timesheet Mgr.

                When a timesheet Manager is changed on a resource record, any outstanding submitted timesheets (not yet approved) should be routed to the new timesheet manager.

                • Exchange online (O365) to Project online Calendar integration. With Project accounting for out of Office time when scheduling resources.

                  Exchange online (O365) to Project online Calendar integration. With Project accounting for out of Office time when scheduling project resources automatically. It just seems strange that all of the O365 offerings (teams\mail\yammer\SharePoint) all link into the exchange calendar but the Project offering which is critically calendar driven is not.

                  • Option to control Enterprise Custom Fields (ECFs) in Project Pro from Project Server/Online

                    There are possibilities today to make project ECFs mandatory and even lock them down for edit after completion with the help of the workflow feature.

                    But no matter how much ECFs can be locked for editing in Project Server/Online, a user can always edit project ECFs without restrictions in Project Professional when connected to Server/Online. This destroys the whole concept of governance and control of the data if you don't want Project Pro users to be able to edit certain project ECFs - especially when using workflow to mirror a project methodology/process.

                    Please provide an option in PWA settings to…

                              • Navigation of gantt chart should not change the way it is printed

                                Each time the Gantt chart of MS Project is zoomed in/out or navigated, the printed chart is modified, and the user needs to enter again all the data of the timescale, to be able to correctly print the Gantt char.

                                It makes nonsense, and is a huge problem. It should work like MS Word and Excel does. Navigation of the document should not change the way it is printed.

                                This poor programming belongs to beta level software, not a decades old commercial software.

                                    Add the ability to download documents that are available to all groups, regardless of projects.
                                    For example, corporate rules, standards should be available to members of different groups. This is necessary so that in case of changing these documents, members of different groups always have access to the changed documents automatically.

                                      • WIle publsihing pop up comes up asking to create project site

                                        Project EPT is set to do not create site in project online. Whenever a project schedule is opened up for editing in Project Pro, while publishing the changes, A pop up comes up asking to create project site when it shouldn't. It comes up every time a project is published.

                                        Attached screenshot. Could you please assist.

                                        If we select create project site is publishes the project but no site is created as expected but next time it comes up again and do not create project site option on the pop up is always disabled.

                                        Has anything changed recently as this…

                                        • Show proper message when opening Project when acting as delegate

                                          Show a proper descriptive message when opening Project when acting as delegate.

                                          Right now when someone starts Project while acting as a delegate, a message pops up saying "Project was unable to establish a connection with <pwa>", which is highly confusing to new users.
