Add people picker field to Project Online
Most of our clients want to register the project steering board members and possibly other stakeholders on a PDP. Not just by entering their name free format in a text field, but by selecting a name from the AD. This field excists in SharePoint, so why not in Project Online?
Tony Welter commented
Agreed, we previously managed a project list with SharePoint and used the people picker column to identify project stakeholder names from AD. But while we are setting up Project Online to replace the SharePoint list for the same purpose, the feature is surprisingly not there.
There is a workaround posted on:
...However, it only allows for one single name to appear on the Project Center. Note that there are several comments on this workaround page asking the developer to add the multiple people option, but that's unlikely as this is now a requested feature in the Project Online User Voice.
There is definitely interest for this feature to be OOTB in Project Online based on the comment thread for the workaround.
