  1. Permit somebody from outside of the US to update their subscription. I tried, but only US credit cards and people in the US can pay on-line

    The subscription renewal will not accept other than US states and US postcodes, meaning that I was unable to renew my subscription.

  2. Enable resource pool to work with files saved on onedrive or sharepoint

    Currently resource pools only work with files saved locally or on network drives, not when the files are saved to onedrive or sharepoint.

  3. In the Task Detail pane, please add an update view that allows me to status the selected task

    When statusing the schedule, I dislike boxes floating around getting in the way of my screen. Please add an optional view in the Detail Pane area to status all normal info on whatever task is selected.

  5. Subsummary bar style

    When making a double indent like

    Summary
    ---Subsummary
    ------Taskname

    The style of the subsummary is inherited from the task style. If a custom style is defined by right-click or with a custom field/flag, the style from the task is not completely overidden. Lets say the task has a full green solid bar, but the subsummary is given a black top line, result is black topline on green solid.

  6. Move multiple bars simultaneously

    This one is so simple, I'm surprised it is not the top feature request ;)

    I basically just want to be able to:

    A: Select multiple tasks, and drag them on the timeline simultaneously

    or

    B: Drag the parent task, and all the subtasks will move accordingly.

  7. Bring back Integration to Azure Devops

    The integration between MS Project and Azure Devops was very useful. While the improved Excel integration with Devops is welcome, it does not make up for the deprecation of the Devops integration with Project. Please bring the integration back!

    Getting more apps for project and task management of Project Desktop, Project Online, PWA, Project for the Web, Devops, Planner, and ToDo with less integration is the wrong direction! The right direction is a common data model for projects and tasks which can be exposed through an appropriate UI.

  8. Change display name in add/remove programs

    Project Online Desktop Client is displayed as Microsoft Project Professional 2016 - en-us in the add/programs list. It would be great to rename Project Online Desktop Client differently than the standalone Project Professional 2016. Please display the correct version being installed to help differentiate the two versions and make software inventory easier to track what computer has what version of Project installed. I reported this to Microsoft as a bug and they specified it was by design. I do not know why this is by design for Project while Visio distinguishes the two (standalone and subscription) by having a different…

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. zoom

    Enable Multi-Year Timeline Zoom

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

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
