  1. Statusing a Project in PfW

    PfW needs "Status Date" type functionality for the distribution of uncompleted and completed parts as they are known in Project. Seeing as how PfW only provides one method of tracking, Task Total with two variations (Completed Hours and % Complete), there needs to be some capability for making sure the past represents what has actually been completed, and the future represents what is left to be completed. With no status date functionality, no split task functionality, and with duration and work tied together, trying to maintain an accurate schedule during the execution phase of a project in PfW is not…

  4. Need to be able to sort/Filter by User

    It is great to use the project, but I need to be able to filter for my tasks, there is no way in a project of 200 task that I can find what I am supposed to do without scrolling through the whole thing.

  5. Uniformity

    Make the "Satisfaction Ding" uniform no matter what action is taken to close out a task. Entering 100% Complete in the Details Side Pane does not produce a satisfaction ding! As you continue to build out PfW, uniformity is important.

  6. Make the product more intuitive

    Once a user signs up - the product needs to be intuitive and help the user to figure things and set up project / programmes. Right now there is nothing and one needs to look at pdf. There are other PPM tools that MS could look at for inspiration.

  7. Please improve the task entry process. Getting all kinds of cryptic errors when trying to add new tasks and make them subtasks.

    feel free to contact me directly. Want to use this in projects but to many issues when working with customer. Customer was not happy.

  9. Control over default buckets when tasks are created.

    Currently, when creating a task in P4W, the 'default' bucket in which the task is put, is the leftmost bucket on the board screen.

    The issue I have is, once the project has several tasks and buckets, additional tasks end up going in the wrong bucket and have to be rechecked constantly.

    Could summary tasks have a "default bucket" dropdown in their details card which sets the default bucket for any child tasks? This wouldn't put the summary task in the board view.

  10. Integrated online access to the logs for debugging

    Integrated online access to the logs for debugging on the same level as possible with Fluent Pro but without the need to pay extra and need to use an third party app.
    There should be a minimal support for first level debugging. This will increase the productivity for admins to resolve issues themselves and create more to the point service requests to Microsoft when needed.

  11. Disable annoying completion sound

    It's that same annoying sound as in Planner (which at least allows it to be disabled) whenever a task is completed. Why would I need an intrusive ding sound? Is it supposed to warn me in case I missed the fact that I just completed a task? If anything, it'd discourage me from ever completing anything (or many tasks at once)!

  12. Link to GitHub is broken

    On this page: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/office/blogs/developing-applications-and-reports-using-the-new-project/
    In the Getting Help section near the bottom, the link to Project on Dynamics GitHub is broken and returns a 404.

    I did a little digging around and it wasn't clear which O365Dev GitHub project it should point to.

  13. Switch to Planner and let Project Die

    As described by other users, Planner is a way better option and really only needs a couple small updates to be more powerful than Project.


    1. For the love of Bill, add gantt chart to project view (instead of calendar view!!)


    2. Add resources option which can directly link to Team members, and or custom entries


    1 could be done immediately and greatly reduce most reasons for wanting project.

    2 not sure how much effort this would take but using planner through teams already has all members accessible for assigning tasks so this may basically be done already.

  14. Add swimlanes to Board view

    I find the Board view rather difficult to use without the ability to organize cards into swimlanes. It's frustrating to know that the feature exists in Azure DevOps but not in Project. Please consider adding this. Thank you!

  15. Consistent Views in Project for web

    You should be able to have consistent sets of fields in a specific order with specific widths in the Grid and Timeline view.

    It would also be great if we could start out with a prepopulated list of buckets.

    It would be great if these could be set on a per template basis.

    Copying a project is not a sufficient replacement for a template. Templates can be setup to provide consistency. At the end of project it may or may not be in such a state that you want to copy it.

  20. Manager Overview of Projects Assigned to Dept

    I am not currently a user of MS Project but I am doing some research to see if it would be a good fit for our company.

    Is there a way for the Manager of the PMO to see a high level overview of all the projects assigned to the Project Managers in the department and their projected timelines?
