  1. Set default views by group / user

    I would like to be able to prioritize the default views users see... not just the total list available to them, but which one actually gets set as their default.

    Ideally I could do this per group, and in turn prioritize the order of groups as would apply to the experience I want someone to have.

    So if group 1 has views A & B (ranked in that order), group 2 has views A & C, and group 3 has view D...., and groups were ranked in that numerical order, then someone in 1 & 2 would see A, B,…

  2. Change the name of the "Units" column in the Task Form to "Init. Units" (or Initial Assigned Units).

    If a resource is assigned to a task for the first time with an amount of work the Units field is calculated based upon the existing duration of the task. This Units field will not change anymore when editing the working hours per resource in the Task Form. This is what beginners do not expect. The Units field reflects the initial assigned units not the current avarage peak units. The title however does not tell that to the user.

  5. time line improvement ideas

    • In the time line, task names should be able to be called out (instead of the whole task)
    • In the time line, Milestones should be able to be dragged in the middle of the time line (not only top or bottom edge)
    • In the time line, Allow overlap between specific tasks (not the hole schedule)
    • In the time line, allow to cut the timeline in the middle and not only start or end. Usefull when a single tasks last long, but need to cut the middle to shorten the whole timeline duration.
    • Allow shapes changes…

  6. Can we get a command button for Unique ID like "go to"

    I like to use the "Go to" command button if your schedule was frozen. But I am constantly adding and deleting tasks and have trained to report against the Unique ID #. But the only way to get to a specific task is by filtering. It would be great to have a command button that would allow for this.

  12. Showing of inactive tasks in predecessor and successor lists during critical path analysis

    Items that are tagged as "inactive" should either be shown with strikethrough fonts in predecessor successor lists of active tasks, or not shown at all. Currently, it is very confusing to do critical path analysis with inactive tasks in the mix. Another option would be to have a switch setting for the file to inhibit the showing of inactive tasks in predecessor / successor lists.

  13. Make the spell checker dialog box scroll to matching sheet row cell

    When you use the spell checker, the dialog box opens on screen and ID's a mis-spelled word. But the sheet row cells remain static on screen. It doesn't automatically scroll down to the matching cell where the error is found. (As does other Office programs Excel, Word do.) So you can see the word in context without having to manually scroll to it. (MSP Pro 2016)

  14. 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?

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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...
