  1. Guest access to projects

    Often there are external users from customers or freelance involved which should have access to a project or roadmap as well without the need of having a project license. This is possible in other project management solutions!

  2. Add templates to project for the web

    When creating a new project we don't want to start from scratch each time. We should be able to select a type of project (or an existing one) and use that as a starting point.

    Hi everyone!

    I’m updating this to “partially complete” as we have finished rolling out the “Copy Project” feature. You can access this by opening a project, clicking on the title to open the details pane, hitting the “…” in the top corner, and then the Copy command.

    You can get more details, tips and tricks here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/copying-projects-in-project-for-the-web/ba-p/1477766

    We’re still thinking about the specific templates scenario and reading your comments below. Please try the feature out and let us know what other feedback/improvements can be made.

  3. Provide Project Web, Plan 1 for nonprofits

    Microsoft Project Plan 1 does not seem to be available for nonprofits (at least not with nonprofit pricing). P1 does not show up as an option to purchase in our tenant. P3 and P5 do (with nonprofit pricing). P1 is perfect for nonprofits. Please bring it to nonprofits (with nonprofit pricing)!

  4. Manual mode tasks

    Please allow tasks to be scheduled in “manual mode” allowing for Project Managers to define start and finish date without auto calculating the effort.

  5. Resource Management

    We need to be able to plan resources within project for the web and the ability to get an overview over all projects in our portfolio including a view if someone is overbooked etc.

    Hi everyone!

    This is something we’re thinking about – but we’d love more feedback from you.

    Can you share specific scenarios that you need for resourcing? What information do you need to be successful? What actions do you take as a result of this information?

    Please share detailed scenarios for us to understand what you need, this will be very helpful to us as we improve Project!

  7. Saving Baseline (Project for the Web)

    One of the biggest advantages of the MS Project (and Project Online) to the other compactor products in web based platforms is the possibility of having Baselines. Without a Baseline controlling the plan and having Planned vs Actual stats wouldn't be easy.
    Please add the option of saving baseline on any given status of the plan without overwriting them so w can compare current status with multiple baselines.

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for the feedback on baselines. I’d love to hear more, and get a discussion going to understand the needs and usage here.

    What’s the most important set of information in a baseline? How often do you take baselines? How often do you compare baselines?

    For those of you who have not previously used the desktop client or Project Online, how have you been tracking baselines on your projects?

    Thanks!

  8. Project for the Web local data storage in UAE and South Africa

    Project for the Web data is currently not stored locally in data centers in South Africa and the UAE. Some customers don't mind that some of their data is stored in a European data center, but for some customers in-country data residency could be a blocker

  9. Permission Management

    Owner should be able to manage permissions to tasks, and by default a task should be only visible to "Assigned To" where he can only edit progress and comments, everything else should be editable by the Owner.

  10. Project for the web: Change licensing to allow for extensibility at a sensible price

    Currently extending Project for the Web with the Power Platform requires a Project Plan P3/P5 subscription. This very expensive given that you already have to pay for a PowerApps subscription as well. This is especially drastic if you need to provide access for team members. Their numbers are normally much higher than the PMs.

    Hello everyone!

    Thanks for your feedback! You can now customize and extend the Project app without purchasing additional Power Apps licenses, making it easier for your organization to tailor Project Plan 5, Project Plan 3, and Project Plan 1 to meet your business needs.

    Read more about this on our blog: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/customizing-and-extending-the-project-app-just-became-more/ba-p/1878008

  11. Expand the limit of smallest value

    ​If you input "0.0001" in the working time field, it turns into “0”. I want it to be shown "0.0001" as I entered. Please expand the limit of the smallest value that can be entered here.

  12. Assign Project for Web tasks should appear in Tasks App in Teams

    Teams Tasks app (Soon to be launched) will show a list of all tasks assigned to you in either Planner or To Do. It would be pretty cool if it also showed line items from Projects for the Web.

    Hi everyone!

    I’d like to understand why you need to edit the schedule in the desktop app, versus just in the web? What key components can be improved for you to work in the web, without needing the client?

    If we provided an import from .mpp to the web, would you be able to be successful managing your project in the web? If no, why not?

    Thank you! We love hearing your feedback.

  14. Notifications

    In the new Project for Web, allow users to customize email notifications about tasks which are assigned to them, have been updated, etc. Does not seem to be an option to do so, and it's critical for my team to be notified about their tasks.

  15. Tasks have the ability to align with the SF, FS, SS, FF of another task

    Many Project Managers use the SF, FS, SS, FF as described by this Wiki

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependency(projectmanagement)

    Would be very helpful as Finish to Start does not address concurrent, or deadline depedant tasks.

  16. Improve Training Videos on Project for the Web and Project Online

    One of the biggest problems is lack of training video's on Project for the Web and implementation/integration of Project where I have some users that are very small projects and need Project for the Web for simplicity and some users that have large ongoing projects that need Project Professional for its extended capabilities. There needs to be clear definition on how to use these as a single platform and what reports are available without the use of Power BI (too expensive for small companies).

    In addition, there is very little available in training video's for the overall implementation and use…

  17. Make Project on the Web available in new Environments

    Power Platform supports multiple environments (Automate and Apps). It should be possible to have a separate Project environment also. The default environment is not enough for global organizations and multiple, different entities. Make it possible to create Project environments just like Automate (Microsoft Flow) and Power Apps.

  18. Project for the Web Custom Fields Available for Reporting Using PowerBI

    Project for the Web Custom Fields and PowerBI: As I develop the enterprise portfolio of projects for my institution, it is important that I allow project managers to use their tool of choice (i.e. MS Project within a Project Online environment for the more experienced PM and Project for the Web for the less experienced PM). There are some strategic projects that do not require the power of MS Project. However, they should be included in the portfolio for reporting purposes. Ultimately, the portfolio would be dynamic if we were using PowerBI and a flag would be used to determine…

  19. Project team members what to be able to see just their tasks like you can in Planner.

    In the board view on project in team, Assignee would like to be able to just see tasks assigned to him/her. Perhaps a tab on the left side of teams like planner that would show all of my tasks regardless of which project they are associated with.

  20. Allow Status Managers to see the breakdown of billable and non-billable time in the Approvals Center

    Once a team member has submitted task updates for approval, the project manager or Status Manager can preview those updates and accept or reject them.

    Currently the Status Manager's are unable to see the split between the non-billable and billable time on the time approvals section and adding this into the view would be really useful.
