  2. Include custom, work and duration fields in the column choices for a project site task list

    I'd like my team to have a task view that shows them assignments and due dates, as well as items like Actual Work and Remaining Work. The work fields are not available on the out of the box task list that is generated when publishing to a project site. It would be helpful to also include custom fields and duration fields.

  3. In the Project Center views the associated Sharepoint sites can be displayed.

    In the Project Center views the associated Sharepoint sites can be displayed.
    You can create views of the Project Center where you can add a field with the URL and the link to the Sharepoint site associated with the corresponding project. In this way you can create views to easily identify and filter the sites to which we want to access.

  4. Sum value is not displaying on the Sharepoint list with advanced feature

    I tried enabling display sum value for the custom list for the manual entry number type fields but the Sum values are not showing up on the list with new feature. But I can see them when changed back to the classic experience. May I know Is this a product issue? or do I need make any changes to see the Sum value with advanced feature?

  5. If a user has been acting as a delegate for a prolonged period of time (say 12 hours), the system should automatically close that delegate s

    If a user has been acting as a delegate for a prolonged period of time (say 12 hours), the system should automatically close that delegate session. If the delegate session remains and the delegated resource is inactivated, the user who is acting as a delegate loses access to PjO until that delegated resource is reactivated.

  8. When I Email/Skype about WBS item. please include contextural info (or hyperlink) automatically.

    PROJECT 2016 (ANY): I want to Email/Skype someone a WBS element and include all the contextural info (or hyperlink) automatically, so when I ask if WBS item 1.C.1 is complete, the recipient automatically knows what I am talking about. This would be great for reconciling WBS to action items with users who don't update on-time. PM can just go thru the project and do ad-hoc notifications.
    Applicable to all MS-Office, shared XLS, PPT files for example.

  10. Task ID in Timesheet views

    Task ID in Timesheet views.

    Put "Task ID" into list of "available fields" in the timesheet views. Right now there is "Unique ID", but that is not the "Task ID" as most people see on the whole project schedule. Unique ID is not sequential.

    We would use "Task ID" in timesheet to sequence the activities to be in the same sequence as shown in the Project schedule.

  11. Dynamic Gantt Creation Based Upon Project Scoping Via Fields

    Rather than have dozens of new project templates, use data fields on a "New Project" form (selection values, binary values, etc...) to allow a base Gantt to be dynamically modified during the creation of a new project. Examples: Project X is for "Customer A", so we need to add tasks/deliverables to the Gantt. Project Y product features include abc, and require FCC hardening, therefore add related tasks/deliverables to the Gantt.

  12. Add quick task progress update buttons to Tasks page

    Make the buttons that mark a task as 0/25/50/75/100% complete under Tasks->Editing on the Project Schedule ribbon are available on the ribbon from the Tasks page for Task Owners to use.

  13. Column Formulas

    This is regarding the construction industry.

    We have overall project quantities. As I build the schedule I adjust the duration of task items to meet contract dead lines.
    I have a "daily Production quantity" column. I would like to just insert a formula to auto calculate this column as I update/change the duration.

  14. El Centro de Recursos puede mejorar

    Me parece que el centro de recursos es una aplicación que puede mejorar considerablemente, por ejemplo, que no se requiera seleccionar a los recursos del Centro de Recursos para identificar todas las solicitudes de Recursos que hay disponibles para la gestión de proyectos.
    Adicional a ello, si actualizo la página de solicitudes de recurso, todas las solicitudes que tenía en el tablero, desaparecen.

  15. Grouping Question

    Hi All,

    I have almost 50 projects and trying to group them as per finish dates (MONTHLY INTERVALS) and I can't get the right formula to get this working. I know I already can group the projects based on finish dates, but I need to have monthly groups. Can anyone please help?

  16. Enable the project Owner and Administrators (those with higher controls) to update project tasks from the PWA

    It would be great if there was a see all project tasks view in the PWA, if you're a project owner/adminstrator, and update the projects with the percentage and with notes, like the assignee can. This would be great for maintaining updates, especially if in a time-sensitive and more collaborative environment.

  17. Integrate a discussion feature that can be related to each task/deliverable

    It'd be great to be able to have a discussion about each task and/or turn a discussion into a task/deliverable. This way the task can be discussed in detail, it will be more collaborative, and the details discussed can be retained without having to rehash the information all over again.

  18. Provide updates from the schedule view that will show up in a aggregate summary in Project Server from all tasks

    It'd be great to be able to do a time-stamped quick update from the schedule view that will aggregate in Project Server or in Project where I can pull a report of updates since the last report. This would be great for me to review the status of the project overall. Currently, it's laborious to update the notes and it's not even possible for me to do quick updates, when I do verbal check-ins with my resources.

  20. Create link families

    Some links are irrevocable
    Some are strategic

    It would be nice to be able to hide the irrevocables and to be able to easily identify and modify the strategic links.

    Example: it is impossible to install false ceilings and / or false floors without having made the support beforehand. (Irrevocable)
    It is impossible to install the false ceiling at the same time as the false floor but they can be done in iver way... there is a strategic link to make...
