  1. Add Trigger To Create Baseline

    Add a trigger to workflow, MS Flow, or elsewhere to allow automatic creation of a baseline.

    Example: I would like to setup a workflow to create a baseline once a certain phase has been completed. Must be able to specify what baseline to store it as, or specify an alias if that suggestion is implemented.

  3. Save page setup to view

    Views are very useful however it would be great if you could set up and save the page setup and print settings for a given view. This would be useful for instance when regularly saving or printing to pdf.

    Looking forward to other's thoughts and feedback.

  4. 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.

  6. Supply the Status Manager in the TimesheetLines table on creation/submission of the timesheet.

    Supply the Status Manager in the TimesheetLines table on creation/submission of the timesheet. Currently the status manager only appears after approval of the status update. This would help in governance and support.

  9. Engagement Timephased DataSet Odata update

    Improvements to other Timephased DataSets have been extremely helpful. I would like to see similar efforts applied to the Engagements Timephased dataset as it is a pain to manually refresh!

  11. Task publishing, don't drop from previously submitted timesheets.

    When you select "no" on "publish" for a task, it removes from resource management views, future timesheets, and from being able to be added to future timesheets - that's great. However, past timesheets are a historical record.

    I know this information is available from oData and reports I create from that, but that's a step too far for many resource managers.

  12. Allow search functionality when adding resources from an Enterprise Resource Pool, to return a specific resource when you enter a name.

    Currently, you can only search the Enterprise Resource Pool by the list defined in MSP. If you to build a team from various departments, it would be much quicker to be able to search by name or surname and have those options returned to you.

  14. Resource Calendar Split Days

    Currently, in order to account for a partial day off, followed by a full day(s) off, the Exception entry to account for this requires two entries, in order to delineate a partial day off followed by a string of full days off.
    Entries for time off are not always for full days, they are often for partial days, and then followed by a full day(s). Because there is differing times, it takes extra time to add both of these entries manually. If there is a cancellation/modification to this time off, a user would need to potentially edit more than 1…

  15. Provide a more usable filter on Build Team Page

    The resource filter on the Build Team Page is not very user-friendly, especially when trying to filter for resource of a Special RBS unit. Yoz have to enter the full path of the RBS unit you wish to filter for instead of simply entering the unit node.

  16. Add a Wait action until workflow has been Executed

    Add a workflow action so a PDP cannot be updated until the workflow action has been performed. e.g. Updating a PDP stage page whilst a a workflow is executing causes an error within the workflows Go to functionality and renders the record in limbo, I cannot be re-submitted and it remains in its original stage.
