  1. Project for the Web REST API documentation and samples

    It would help integration scenarios tremendously if the the Project for the Web REST API (e.g. "https://project.microsoft.com/pss/api/v1.0/projects") could be documented and rendered more accessible by providing samples. One scenario that would be fitting is the creation and update of tasks triggered by another tool/event.

  3. Task assignment notifications in teams

    As in Planner it would be very useful if an assignee gets a notification right within Microsoft Teams when a task has been assigned. And also important, the ability to get notifications in Teams only and optional also as an e-mail.

  5. Project for the web - Keep column width

    Project for the web - when I adjust column widths it would be useful if those adjustments remained consistent the next time I went into Project for the web. This would be especially useful when framing Project for the web in Teams because of the limited screen space.

  6. Ability to add attachments to a taks / subtask / project

    Hi there
    We need the ability to add attachments to a task/subtask and a project in general. Same functionality as in Planner. Ideally we can add attachments from anywhere in SharePoint across multiple teams.
    Cheers,
    Fabrizio

  7. Restore projects for Project for the web

    If you accidentally delete a project, or if a person maliciously deletes projects (e.g. rogue employee), you MUST have the ability to restore a project or multiple projects. In addition, if a person accidentally or maliciously destroys a project, you MUST also have the ability to restore it as of a given date & time.

    Please, make it so.

  8. 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

  9. Update Icon for Project

    Although it is more of a cosmetic improvement, updating the Project icon to the new modern look would go a long way to help reinforce that Project is still moving forward just like the rest of the O365 apps and not stuck in some forgotten junk pile.

    Heck, even Planner has a new icon!

    I have enclosed a sample of new Project icons for your consideration. Please vote and post which icon you prefer.

    This is simple and easy fix and shows that you care about Project that is extensively used by PM community.

  10. View my assignments

    Maybe I missed it, but where does one see his assignments and can report upon completion (like My Tasks/Timesheet in Project)?

  12. Possibility to hide completed tasks

    In a complex Project with many tasks, subtasks and lots of different owners, we need the option to adapt the overview of tasks - e.g. by:
    - user / assigned to me
    - hide completed tasks (like in planner)

  14. Group by assigned to

    Under the Board view add "Assigned to" under Group by - just like in Planner which uses the same board framework.

    Hi everyone!

    For “Group By Assigned To”, how would you expect the work to be split up for tasks that have multiple assignments?

    1. The task shows up under every single person its assigned to. When one person finishes the task, the whole task gets complete. This mimics Planner.

    2. The task shows up under every single person its assigned to. When one person finishes the task, a certain percentage of the task gets complete (if there are two assignees, then it would be 50% complete).

    Thanks for this feedback!

  15. Finish to Start

    In Project Online, I use finish to start +- x number of days and do not see this on Project for the Web. That's a major hindrance to using this version. I'd love to see this added as i usually use automatic tasks and assign FS dependencies on them.

  16. Date format of project ie set dd/mm/yyy

    Allow projects to be set in the relevant date format. It seems as if only US date format is available. That means in Australia dates are misinterpreted 12 days every month. It’s the same issue as planner. Date format needs to be considered for every MVP.

  17. Ability to comment tasks / giving feedback

    When working on projects, users like to give feedback right in a task / column. Would be nice having a column in the grid view to see comments on a task

  20. Time-tracking app integration with MS Project

    Wouldn't it be great if all our various team members could track-time via a mobile app that then integrated with MS Project to show actual time worked on tasks!

    We'd learn really fast lessons about our estimating accuracy that would help us improve double-quick.
