  1. Color-coding for Tasks on Timesheet Page

    It would be really helpful if the tasks can be color-coded on the Timesheet page view. That would make it easier to input work hours in the right task line. Attached is an example in Excel.

  4. Team Resource management in Resource Center

    The Team Resource function simply doesn't work as one would expect in the Resource Center.

    When I work with teams as a resource manager, I expect to see the work demand on my team (Team Resource assigned to tasks) as well as the committed work on each individual team member (Work Resource in the Team Resource). That way, I can:

    1) Balance the workload and prioritize which tasks should be assigned first from Team to Work Resource

    2) If I have teams across the organization, I can demand plan over the next few years and create scenarios in a simple…

  7. Separate the Security permission that control Custom Fields and Lookup Tables

    Can the Security Permissions be separated for Custom Fields and Lookup tables.

    I have users that I am happy to entrust with adding / deleting values on a lookup table. However, I do not want them to have access to add or delete custom fields.

    As the security model stands at the moment, that is no possible.

  8. Add a Baseline Type Field

    For an organization that requires distinct baseline types, provide a baseline level field that can be used to select the type of baseline data stored in that specific baseline. An enterprise LUT could be used to allow customization of the allowable baseline type selection values, but only a value in the list can be selected. When using the Set Baseline window, a part of that window shows the baseline fields along with a create date. Include this new field as part of that display. All the Baseline level fields such as the Save Date, Update Date, and Type should be…

  9. Display Remaining Work in Time Phased Grid Format

    Currently, there is no option to show the ‘remaining work’ field in a time phased view. The user needs to do a manual calculation of the difference between Work and Actual work for each time period in order to discern how much remaining work there may be in a set time period. Not having the remaining work displayed in a time phased view, prevents the user from easily discerning the work expected during a given time period to assess if there are any potential issues.
    In any view that displays work data in a time phased grid format, such as…

  11. Duplicate existing portfolio analyses

    It would be good, if one could create a new portfolio analysis based on an existing portfolio analysis in order to follow up on the evolvement of a fixed portfolio set without having to click together each time the same scenario.

  12. Last updated time gaps for the baseline plan

    When you saved the baseline plan in Project online, the last updated date/time may be different than actual time. Some fields in Project online can be displayed in PST, but when you create and save the item in JST, this might cause 17 hours difference somehow. I would like you to fix this time zone issue because this may cause confuses for users who use Project together.

  16. Export pdf in a consistent way

    I want to be able to create snapshots of a tracking gantt view in a consistent way and export them to pdf.

    At the very least an options menu in the PDF export would be nice.

  18. Add the Option to stamp as a draft with a watermark

    Currently the only way to mark as a draft is by adding in the footer or header but if you are sharing electronically with other users they cannot see that unless they print. Add the option to stamp the document as a draft.

  19. 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.
