  1. Improve automatic calculation of webpart heights

    In many situations especially with low screen resolutions the height of PWA webparts is calculated strangely. Sometimes up to three scrollbars will appear, often the available space remains unused.

      • Updating the Leveling Options to accomodate Recent resource engagement feature

        With the introduction of the Resource Engagement feature, Microsoft has chosen to change the paradigm with regards to the resource 'Booking Type' and instead has given us the options of the Proposed and Committed options for resource engagements. Apart from the confusion in that they use the same option names (i.e., proposed and committed), the paradigm has been changed to the point where we feel like it is "pulling of the rug from right under our feet". That is, the introduction of the resource engagement feature replaced the resource 'Booking Type' to the extent that it affected the Resource Capacity…

          • relax license rrquirements for PWA reports via the OData feed.

            It is unfortunate and wrong to limit the use of this feed to the max license type. Only users who can MODIFY the Project Server database should need a full project online license.

            For reporting in read only mode, one should only need a lite license, or add a new inexpensive reporting only license.

            Vote up and add additional justification here.

            • kitchen remodel template

              There is currently no home remodeling or interior design template available, yet many homeowners often remodel kitchens, baths, and other areas in their homes. There is only a new home construction template, which does not really apply here, as furniture, cabinetry, lighting, fixtures, etc, all have to be ordered in a timely fashion, following design and budget programming.

                • I cannot use anything in microsoft project even though I have a subscription to Project Online Premium

                  Hope you clarify on what I can use and not use. It has been very confusing to owe a subscription but no access to any features. I am not able to do anything from there and have tried learning from microsoft and other sources..

                  • Add Owner to ProjectCreationInformation for API creation of projects

                    The default "Owner" field is mandatory for any new project created, however it is not present in the ProjectCreationInformation type used to specify other required properties like Name, Date, EPT, etc.

                    Not being available results in the default of the current user being set as the owner (so a service account in workflow solutions), which then causes huge issues through by setting the Status Manager on all tasks in the template.

                    This results in an unnecessarily more complicated project creation development effort (from hours to days) just to set one property.

                    Link to type I'm talking about:

                      • Allow users to freeze panes when editing timesheets and the Schedule PDP.

                        When making edits in the Schedule PDP or timesheet it would be helpful to be able to freeze the top row and first column so users don't have to continuously scroll up or down to check the date, task name, etc.

                          Analogous to the CSOM/REST API endpoints also the OData reporting endpoints should be security trimmed, providing only the data that is available to the user in Project Center and Resource Center

                              • Utilizing Resource Usgae as a resourcing heat map for future planning

                                Hi all,

                                We have a very good resourcing tool that is based on an SSRS report for resource forecasting and heat-mapping (figure 1)

                                However, this functionality is very similar to using the Resource Usage report within MS Project itself (figure 3)

                                Also, the update time for SSRS reports can bog down due to the sheer number of project we have running so having this as live report in Project is desirable.

                                PS: Don't look at the actual data as it is from different times!

                                Is there anyway of:

                                1. creating new cell types - example "Capacity" - ie how many…

                                  When a customer implementation requires replicating of PWA data to a SQL Server database it's fairly easy to get the project data by using Integration Services and the e.g. the projects OData feed. This feed contains custom fields and the lookup table values selected on a project, but it's not possible to get further details on the selected lookup table item.

                                  It should be possible to read lookup tables and lookup table items (incl. level, value and description) in an OData service. Further it should also be possible to map a selected lookup table value on a project (or other…

                                  • Consider Resource Engagements as default schedule option

                                    Using the Resource Engagements as standard resource management approach creates the need to use the option"Calculate Resource Utilization from --> Resource Engagements" per schedule. This must be done manually for each schedule, because the option set in the project schedule template is not taken over.

                                    Therefore, please enable setting the option as default for all new schedules. Else this is a lot of manual work and counteracts on the Resource Engagement approach.
