  1. Expand Odata to include a DeliverableTaskAssociations table

    This might be similar to https://microsoftproject.uservoice.com/forums/218133-microsoft-project/suggestions/18062158-deliverables-dependencies-odata.

    Please add a DeliverableTaskAssociations table to Odata to mirror the functionality provided by the IssueTaskAssociations and RiskTaskAssociations tables.

    • Group for Project Manager to edit projects they do not "own" in SharePoint Permission Mode

      We want all Project Managers to be able to edit any project in our instance and we're using SharePoint permissions mode, but our Microsoft support team has noted this capability is not available now and to submit the idea. This can be done in Project Server Permissions mode.

      The alternative work around is to give all Project Managers Admin access or Update the Project level ECFs from Project Professional->Project menu->Project Information.

      I'm not sure why this basic permission option is not available...

      • Admin to be notified about all failed jobs

        In Project Online, a user can be notified about his own jobs only. It would be good to automatically notify an admin when any job fails, regardless of owner.

        • Drop the ribbon altogether and discontinue use of Save/Publish/Close/Check-in.

          Drop the ribbon altogether and remove the need for Save/Publish/Close/Check-in. If I click in a field on a pdp and change something, it should save in real time.

          Atomic changes should allow for easy change review and undo feature. Saving and closing a pdp would no longer take 10 seconds. Changes made to the gantt would be internally categorized and committed instantly and would intelligently drive the use of the recalculation engine so projects don't always take 20 seconds to save/publish/check-in.

            • Projects' publication

              You could improve this rescue, checkin, and publication scheme.
              It is a very fragile form in terms of maintaining the integrity of projects and difficult absorption by users.

                • BUG: Baseline no Baseline

                  There is a bug of sorts. Where a baseline is set but is not displayed in the set baseline box. A pretty specific method to set the baseline but not have it appear in the set baseline box so I made a blog post about it rather than trying to put it all right here. Go to http://www.epmstrategy.com/baseline-no-baseline/ to see the full explanation.

                  • Make Physical % Complete editable in PWA

                    Please, make Physical % Complete editable in PWA schedule views.

                    As observed since Project Server 2010, throughout 2013 and Online as well, tasks built-in field Physical % Complete cannot be edited. It should be possible as it is editable in Project Professional and its purpose is to enter data manually.

                    In PWA views (access via browser) clicking on this column makes selection gray (uneditable) in contrast to for example % Complete as shown in attached screenshot.

                    This issue has been reported before: https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/projectserver/en-US/d449410d-edec-4644-a8da-e1ccfcae0ddd

                      • 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.

                            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.

                              • 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.

                                  • Audit Changes to Project Fields and other PWA Components

                                    Need a way to enable auditing of the changes that happen on all project components (i.e. Project type Enterprise Custom Fields, Resource Plan, Strategic Impacts, Lists in Project Sites, etc.).
                                    This would be applicable to saves not just publishing.
                                    The date of the action and the user that performed the action should be available.
                                    This should be available for reporting.

                                      • 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…
