    • Improve Usability of PDP pages

      I firmly believe with handling so many clients one thing that almost every client complains about is around the usability of PDP pages, in the current mobile world where most of us spend more time on our cell phones or tablets than computer the project online is rather or completely unusable, more than mobile even on the computer screen depending upon the resolution of the screen you can find 2 or even 3 scroll bars or more at times on the screen, no control on how to display the relevant content efficiently and effectively on a page, this poses adoption…

        • 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.

          • Format enterprise custom date fields to include only date or date/time

            Allow admins to choose date or date/time format for new enterprise custom fields. Right now, all date fields are date/time, which is not intuitive for users.

            • Create Project Site on First project save

              The settings for project site creation have now changed and have been moved to the EPT. There is now no option to automatically create a project site on first project creation - but rather you have to publish the project once its already created. For many this is now an additional step - as a lot of customers create projects in the project centre off a sharepoint list... these new settings currently appear to be a backward step or overhead. this request is to add the ability to include a setting "Create site on first save".

              • You need to really put yourselves in the position of a small business owner

                The list of choices shows the oversight of the biggest issue of all in adoption of this application. You need to literally have 10 small business people who have a need for this that have never used project or project management before who see this offered on purchased services and say, hmm, looks interesting, I think I will try it. At that point, the brain cleaning begins. You absolutely go out of your way to not provide any tangible end to end hypothetical scenario. This is what you need an end to end scenario that shows every step you need…

                  • Engagements to influence Max Units (Project Level) and Resource Leveling

                    Approved resource engagement for a certain project would count as the availability of the resource for the project.
                    This will influence:
                    1. Max Units in resource sheet (or another field)
                    2. Default unit allocation for the task
                    3. Resource Leveling
                    4. Over allocation indications and graphs

                    E.g., if a resource Max Units on the enterprise server is 100% but his approved engagement for my project is 50% then:
                    1. In my project, the resource Max Units would show 50%
                    2. When I assign the resource to a task, by default it would be assigned with 50% units
                    3. When leveling…

                        • Add a Baseline Comment Field

                          New project baselines are typically required due to scope, priority, or resource changes. We could track these changes more easily if each baseline included a comment field.

                          • Improve rollup of timephased reporting data in Project Online (ResourceTimephasedDataSet and EngagementsTimephasedDataSet)

                            Implementing rollup of timephased reporting data in Project Online is wunderful, as described in
                            https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Configure-rollup-of-timephased-reporting-data-in-Project-Online-da8487fe-899e-4510-a264-e2ebc948928c?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                            To get full advantage, it would be nice to have this option also for ResourceTimephasedDataSet and EngagementsTimephasedDataSet

                            • Resource Managers only see the description when they receive an engagement request not the comments.

                              Resource Managers should be able to view comments from the comments field that Project Managers include with the engagement request. They only see the description. When the Resource Manager accepts/rejects/edits the request, they can add comments which the PM sees in Project Pro but again these comments are not visible to the Resource Manager. Resource Manager should see the comments when they receive the request.

                                  I am rolling out Project Online to an organization - we are just starting but have 2 different levels of PM capability - a few senior PMs can enter projects and have their team members get notifications and task completion, etc. - the less senior members are new to Project generally and we really don't want emails going out to their resources until they have better handle on project tasks entry, etc. --- however, we are using the Project portfolio status level irrespective of the project tasks completion to provide management a view health factors. It would be great if…
