  1. Auto-save needed

    I have grown so accustom to my Office documents auto-saving when saved to cloud storage that I forget to manually save do this with working with Project. This has caused a lot of lost work for me.
    Remember to save should be a figment of the past.

  2. Saving a project file as a PDF on a mapped drive causes MS Project to freeze

    MS Project freezes when trying to save a project as a PDF to a mapped drive. After trying to solve this issue the microsoft premier support informed me that this behavior is by design with following statement:

    The behavior is by design, and triggered by the latency of the connection with the Network Drive. (10ms+)

    As a workaround we need to save the PDF locally and move it to the mapped drive.

  4. Show enterprise custom fields when not connected top Project Online

    When a project file is converted to an mpp file using "Save As" so the PM can work on it not connected to Project Online, all of the "Enterprise Custom Fields" disappear. Please make them visible even if they cannot be modified offline.

  8. Import and export Bar formats

    Allow the option to copy and paste custom Bar formats, between project files, either as a copy and paste function between two project files(which isnt possible at the momnent) or as as eperate import and export function.
    Currently i have a Project template set up with the custom bar styles in but if we receive a programme from an extrenal source then I have to add these custom bar styles manully every time. Custom bar styles are used to indentify quickly different stages of a project, and to add some corperate indentity.

  9. zoom

    Enable Multi-Year Timeline Zoom

    For long-term projects it would be great to be able to zoom out further to quarters/years.

  10. Integrate MS Project with MS Teams

    It would be useful to me as the single PROJECT license owner in the company to be able to share a "read-only" view of the project with my team. This would be useful to do through a Microsoft Teams tab.

  12. Do not limit number of Timeline Bars

    Currently Timeline has a limit of only allowing ten bars. I need several dozen and this varies from project to project. Please do not limit the number of timeline bars I can create.

  13. Quick link Forward and BACKWARD from a Constrained Task Date

    Hi, I want to quickly link tasks Forward and Backward from a task that has a Date Constraint.
    Quick linking forward (FS) from the Date Constrained task is easy with the Link button in the Schedule field on the ribbon.
    BUT, I want to also quickly link like this Reverse/Backwards (SF) from the same Date Constrained task.

    Idea being that I change the Date Constraint date and all the tasks before and after that task move with it.

    If there was a Link Reverse button that worked like the current Link Forward button that would be awesome!

    Please help as…

  14. Allow Timeline Task Colors to Match the colors on the Gantt Chart.

    Currently, I'm able to automatically color a task bar in the Gantt chart according to the resource group, albeit that processes could be simplified as well. When viewing in Timeline the task color is set to a light blue. It would be excellent if there was an option to set the color of the Timeline bar to match the color of the Gantt chart bar for the associated task.

  16. Link ADO Start and Target Dates to Project Start and Finish Dates

    The "Team" plugin allows users to export Azure DevOps work items into Excel and Project. Exports into Excel include Start and Target dates from ADO, yet the exports into Project do not. Other fields such as Iteration Path export perfectly. Start and End dates are the most fundamental project/work/task management data elements....can we please add them to the export for Project to achieve parity with Excel?

  17. Excel Features

    Incorporate more Excel features. For example, Zoom to Selection so the selected range of cells fill the entire screen, and Freeze Panes which freezes a portion of the sheet to keep it visible while you scroll through the rest of the sheet.
