  2. Missing value "Summary" Yes/No in Export to Excel

    In the Export to Excel it would be nice if a column was added that could differentiate between a normal task and a summary. Just like the Milestone Yes/No column.

  3. Add effort in the summary for Export to Excel

    The new export to Excel feature is nice. The summary on top (Cells A1 : B7) should also contain some Effort related data in my opinion.

  5. Provide a means of a central project list from multiple project sites.

    Each Project web site has a project list / assignments. We would like a means to have one central list for independent multiple project sites. You can do this if you put all the project sites as sub-sites under a top site, but then you run into security issues. So for security reasons, have to create each Project site now as top site but then each site has its own project list. Just would like to have one place to go look at all the project tasks from multiple project sites in one place instead of having to go to…

  6. Customization of the bar in the timeline view would be nice.

    I used this feature in the desktop version to indicate if a task was scheduled with a sub-contractor or if the task was still just a placeholder in the schedule.

  8. Release a Corresponding Project Template that optimizes capabilities of the Power BI Template for Project Integration

    Microsoft released a Template for Power BI Desktop for pulling Project data into the Power BI environment - however, is there a corresponding Project template on the Project side that is compatible and maximizes the capabilities of the Power BI template? if not, can one be developed?

  9. A

    When I open a project, it automatically goes to the grid view. It would be great if we could set a preference allowing a plan to open to whatever I'm most interested in

    eg most products I'd like to see the timeline at first. It would be great if the project plan automatically opened to this window

  10. Provide an option to evaluate the expected progress % of the tasks and overall project

    It is important to be able to compare the current progress in a project against the expected progress. Right now we can only have access to understand the current progress. In this way we can evaluate how big is the gap in the weekly updates for the project health

  11. Forms Integration and automation for tasks

    SmartSheet & Airtable have a Project killing feature with Forms to automate data collection. (They also don't require a license for a collaborator!)

    Scenario 1: A task is assigned and due on March 3rd. Automation built in allows a premade form to be automatically emailed to the person the task is assigned to for a status update 3 days before the due date. The task owner fills out the form (and can add attachments, which is apparently coming to Project) and when they submit it, the task status automatically updates with completion and notes and alerts the project manager.

  13. Resource Leveling: Add the option to excluded Started tasks from the leveling calculation

    In the Leveling Options, please add the option to not have the started task to be schedule before other task that have a higher priority.

    Currently, a task with a lower priority will be schedule before a higher priority task if it is (or will be) started before the higher priority one.

    See step 3, that goes before step 4 to 8 (Leveling Order)

    Many thanks for your time

  16. Improve Tracing Logic in Project because it’s not easy & users spend more time

    There are approaches mentioned e.g use Task Inspector to Trace Logic in Project
    but all these involve more time, effort, and opportunity for human error.

    its not good for 100+ activities / complex projects.

    Please can someone investigate or compare against another scheduling tool on tracing Logic’.

    As a user i would like to see all dates + all predcessors + all successors on 1 single task like.

    Can Tracing logic be made easier?

    Thank you so much for reading.

  17. Expose custom fields in Board View as Group By options

    The fields that we create should be exposed in Board View to be able to be grouped by, similar to what labels do in planner

  18. EVM graph

    Have a feature to generate Earn Value Analysis/ Management more easily. I know there is a way already but it should be more like actual EVM graph (s-curve shows ACWP BCWP BCWS). The construction industry need much better user experience.

  19. Retain the previous view when Refreshing Project for the Web

    Project for the Web times out after a while, and you have to click 'Refresh' to bring it back to life. When I do that, it doesn't retain the view I was previously using. I usually work in Board view, and group by finish date. Whenever I Refresh it reverts to group by bucket, which seems to be the system default.

  20. Highlight Task/Gantt bar as “At Risk” in red on schedule or Timeline

    In Roadmap I can mark a task/summary as “At Risk or High Risk” and the color changes to red. It would be nice if I could also mark a task within the plan as “at risk” so it’s visually identifiable. The Gantt bar should also show as red so it stands out.
