  3. Remove items from Roadmap easier

    need to make it easier to delete items from a Roadmap without going to Details and clicking Remove Item and then confirm.

  4. Possibility of row grouping (or adding multiple projects to one row)

    Hej,
    would it be possible to add extra layer (layers) of grouping in the RoadMap or other way round - to connect multiple projects with just one row. File attached. Thank you!

  5. Show milestone titles on the roadmap

    It would be great to see the titles of the milestones at the high-level at-a-glance view. When you look at a roadmap with a bunch of dots but have no idea what those milestones are without hovering over each milestone, it defeats the purpose of the roadmap, which is intended to show at a high level, without double clicks, what's coming on the roadmap.

  6. Roadmap: Allow to select Timeline/ Summary/ Field/ Custom Bar. Legend

    Roadmap is a very nice feature which saves some of our time. We used to do the report manually in MS Project but some features are missing and it will be helpful to add.
    1. Allow to select the specified timeline for view with quarter or month zoom.
    2. Allow entry of summary project and bar and roll-up of milestone.
    3. Allow custom field or bar to format the color and text.
    4. Allow to add legend.
    Sample attached.

  7. Roadmap - Item deleted in Project Online

    Roadmap helps to visualize the key phases and milestones across multiple projects managed from Project Online. With many items across multiple rows in Roadmap, it is quite difficult to notice which phases/milestones were deleted in Project Online until the user clicks that item to notice an error message like "This item has been deleted in Project Online." and prompting them to remove the item.

    My ask is can the deleted items have a different color or with a symbol, so that they can inspect and take an action.

  8. Develop a quick extract feature to move a schedule from Project to an Office Timeline+ in MS PowerPoint

    Office Timeline+ is an excellent high-level visualization of key project tasks and milestones. The Gantt visuals in Project have never been very aesthetically pleasing. Being able to quickly export a Project schedule into an appealing Timeline+ visual would be fantastic.

  9. Customize UI

    Our team is interested in applying Branding and other items to the Project Roadmap feature. Has anyone determined where/what/how we might be able to do things like:

    Add Logos
    Change the color/background of the Bars etc that are created - today we see basic colors - like to have the colors follow our brand policies
    Change the images that are used when adding items like Status/Milestones etc
    Adding images to the Roadmap - for example "dividers" or other images to show the individual rows are part of a Program

  10. Completed Tasks: Do not strikethrough task name, just use the checkmark

    Strikethrough of completed task names in Roadmap reduces readability. Omit the strikethrough formatting and just use the checkmark and white fill to indicate completed tasks.

  11. Microsoft not to deactivate Roadmap from Project Online when your Org will currently not use Project for the web

    Roadmap will be deactivated if Project for the Web is deactivated.
    We are paying for the Project Online including Roadmap and we do not want to use Project for the web yet. We will first roll-out ProjectOnline and afterwards providing Project for the web to a broader range of users.
    Nevertheless Portfoliomanager's can't use Roadmap anymore now.

  12. Task duration accepts "2d" style input in any language

    With Japanese language, Project Task Duration fields reject "2d" input.

    Instead of "2d", we must use "2 日" that means 2 days in Japanese but Japanese users may express 2-days as "2d" usually.

    So task duration or any similar fields should accept "2d", "3h" and "4w" style input regardless of user's language.

  13. When adding a project to a roadmap and the project summary task is enabled, the system should auto-populate the start/end date.

    Rather than manually adding all the phases. I would like the ability to set up a quick roadmap by searching for the project in Project Online, then have the system pick up the start/end dates from the project summary task initially. Then provide the option to add Phases & Key dates if needed.

  14. Should search by Project Name first and Owner field should auto-populate when adding projects to a roadmap.

    Owner field is already populated in Project Online. The workflow should be to search for the project first, then auto-populate the Owner field with the Project Detail Owner information from Project Online.

  15. Need ability to specify whether an Item being added is a Phase or a Task.

    The system seems to be randomly choosing whether an Item being added is a Phase or Task. I need the ability to change from a Task to Phase. When adding items, I should be able to click on 'Task' or 'Phase' and change it from one to the other.

  16. Completion status based on start and end date

    In some cases like a pilot phase of a project the the completion status is not actually based on work but the scheduled duration time.

    As for such "Tasks" it would be nice having an option to depend the completion status on the start and finish date an not a manually entered value.

  18. Allow customisation of the placement of row items in roadmap

    The automatic placement of row items within the row can be a bit untidy and should allow someone to move individual items up or down in sync with the date.

  19. Major Change - Will this affect existing Enterprise Templates containing VBA Code in any way?

    Will the new Major Change affect the way in which Project Enterprise Templates work and the VBA Macro Code works within them?

    I am concerned as our business relies heavily on these processes to import from Project to SharePoint and want to be sure nothing will be affected.

    Many Thanks
    Dean

  20. Supply new users with a tool to assist identifying & defining what the customers hardware currently is?actually is that is applying

    Supply new users with a tool to assist in identifying & defining what the customers' hardware currently is? What their respective hardware can currently handle and then make the necessary sales suggestions
    This will create a short cut to expediting the entire process thus achieving user convenience and confidence and streamline the entire application
