  1. Allow color or icon to be set for buckets

    Allow a color or icon to be set on buckets so that it is easy to recognize the type of task in the Board's Group-by-Progress view.

    The current view does show the name of the bucket which is useful but an icon or color would make recognition easier. This would help our workflow where buckets are used to distinguish between internal tasks or client-assigned tasks like reviews. A color or icon would make these easy to identity if status meetings. Another example is to distinguish training tasks from development tasks in stand-up meetings.

  2. Add a 'Choice' data type for custom fields in Project for the Web

    I would like to be able to assign each task to a particular trade (e.g. welder, fabricator, painter etc) and use these to filter or group the tasks for export (probably through Excel and then be printed) to pass to each trade supervisor.

    The shop floor workers don't have access to a PC, hence the printed task cards. Also, the supervisors do not have MS Project and would not be expected to modify the Project Plan anyway.

  3. Being able to add actionable items within a task.

    The task within Project is not as rich as in Planner. For example, it would be great if a task could contain actionable items, just like a task in the Planner app! This helps reduce the need for number of tasks in Project, greatly contributing to its readability.
    + possibility to add @person to an item or a comment inside the task would be even better :-)

  5. Implement Version History/Change Tracking

    Team members who make changes to a project task's start/finish date or duration may not realize how it impacts dependent tasks/milestones. PMs need to be accountable for the project plan and if a change was made, I'd like to be able to see who made it and when, especially if I need to confirm whether it was intentional or not. As an alternative, presenting the user with a notification that their change will impact dependent tasks may deter accidental updates.

  6. Favro vs. MS Project

    Hello, I used to have Favro as my project management tool and I find it to be much more robust than MS Project, it gives you road map, tasks, video to upload attachments and much more, What is the status of MS Project to build a more comprehensive tools for MS Project?

    Also, MS Project and MS Planner look almost identical, what is the difference?

  7. Can we have some (10 or so?) custom fields to add at the project level for Project for the Web

    We would like the ability to tag and filter P4W Projects by department, programs, phases, etc... Doesn't have to be custom, could be permanent fields, just need the capability to tag projects for filtering purposes.

  9. The ability to 'Change working time'

    As can be currently done in the desktop version, we need to be able to input the unavailability of resources so that the project schedule automatically takes it into account when the duration of a task is entered

  10. Custom field at project level

    It would be great if we could add the custom fields created in the Dynamic Project app to the project for the web form. Currently we have to navigate on both platform to update our projects.

  12. Be able to assign all kind of resources to a task

    (Project for the web)
    Possibility to add all kind of resources/users to a task.

  15. Improve the timeline up to the one available on MSProject desktop

    The Timeline of the project is the best way to summarize for everyone the main task in the project.
    In Project Desktop this feature are really improve the interaction inside the team and make a very good overview of the project it's also a way to communicate, share information and see immediatly the status and next milestones. I don't understand why it has not been do the same in Poject for the web.

  16. RYG status

    Ability to create a field that can be highlighted or backfilled red, yellow or green to show status. Today I use conditional formatting in Excel based on whether I put the word "red", "yellow", "green" or "complete" (Blue)

  17. Add RAID tabs (Risks, Assumptions, Issues and Decisions)

    I have been a project manager for 15 years and have used the desktop and enterprise MS Project.

    I have always had to keep a RAID log outside of MS Project and end up using Excel for this. Does not seem like a stretch to add tabs for this in the online version.

    Ideally the ability to track budget and project costs - schedule with ability to rollup to monthly, quarterly and yearly totals.

    And an action item tab that are not necessarily project activities but need to kept and managed too.

  19. Add the filter option to the timeline for Project for the web.

    As of now you can only filter on the "Grid" tab. Please add that feature to the Timeline/Gantt chart! It can be really useful!
