  1. Allow multiple colors to differentiate nonworking days. Color 1 for weekends; color 2 for Holidays; color 3 for Inclement Weather; etc.

    As a Construction Company, differentiating between various nonworking days with different colors would be a huge advantage over seeing all nonworking days as one color. We need a color for normal nonworking weekends; another color for weekends that must be changed to normal work days; another color for company holidays; another color for Owner specific holidays; another color to indicate the historical inclement weather days for each geographic location of the project; another color for Excessive Inclement Weather Days --- this will help with Time Extension Requests ---

    Being able to select different colors for nonworking days just as we…

  2. 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..

  4. Bug: New Flag for Newly Added Tasks in My Task

    Earlier in Project Server, there used to be a functionality to show if the Task in Project has been added new or not. there used to be a flag in the database from where we used to find the Delta on which Team member has not yet worked.

    Currently, In Project Online no such flag is available.

  6. new version of project online such as project lite

    Create a third, cheaper tier, for people who just want basic access to project management features, that will cost anywhere from $5 to $12 monthly as opposed to the current $30.

    Make project lite compete with the other alternatives out, and something simliar to combining microsoft teams & planner into 1 combined service. And integrate that into all office 365 services.

  7. while going for a printout, i am not able to adjust columns of details with the timeline or critical pathgraph

    while going for a printout, i am not able to adjust data columns of detail with the graph. it should happen automatically when going for printout. it will give a consolidated report in which project details and timeline and critical path graphs go together. every time i have to reduce width of data columns to make them visible in printout. it is also getting difficult to include all relevant columns.

  12. Bring Power BI and Excel Web Services into Government cloud so that reports can be dynamic.

    These feature are available commercially. There's no published timeline for bringing these into compliance for Government.

  13. Milestone checklists

    Make it possible to associate (link) checklists with milestones.

    Milestones are often used to indicate a decision point in a project. Predefined checklists are used to list prerequisites for milestone approval. The ability to associate checklists with milestones would support this scenario.

  15. 'Overallocated' Flag not set at Task Level

    Hello, the ToolTip against the 'Overallocated' Flag states: "Indicates whether *any* of the assigned resources on a task is assigned to more work *on the task* ... than can be done within the normal working capacity". However, even though this Flag is set for the Resource at Task level -- even if there is only one Resource against the Task -- it is not set at Task Level. This makes filtering at Task-level in the Gantt impossible...

    The second a single Task Resource is Overallocated, then that Task obviously has "assigned resources ... assigned to more work on the task…

  17. Since you have now added Status to the TimeLine view, can you include a bar for baseline information?

    Since you added the capability, not yet in full production, of putting status information on the Timeline view, can you also allow the user the ability to include Baseline information. Giving the user the ability to select bar styles in the Timeline view, like we do in the Gantt Chart, would be a great help.

  18. Dates from Project should paste into Excel as date format (with underlying number) so that it is useful.

    Dates from Project should paste into Excel as date format (with underlying number) so that it is useful.
    If dates can be pasted into excel then it is possible to generate a cashflow in excel based upon the dates that were generated by dragging the bars about in Project. Until now I have used VBA to convert the 'text dates' from Project into underlying excel date numbers by programmatically replacing the text with an 'excel date'.
