  1. 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.

  3. Sharing is scary

    There is no indication if someone else is changing my project or has changed it. Hard to track, seems basic for management tools

    Please add it

  4. 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.

  5. Agile boards

    The new agile features added to Project are good for planning. Key aspect of agile is communication in teammembers, so access to the plan/boards for team is very important.
    It can be sufficient just display the boards in project site or in PWA.

    Hi everyone!

    We’ve heard your ask for boards, and we understand that its an important way to work.

    We just launched the new Project, with a redesigned user experience that is simple and intuitive. Teams can quickly add new members and set up tasks, and then easily switch between grids, boards, or timeline (Gantt) charts to track progress.

    Some links to learn more:

  6. Tasks with cost resource MUST be calculated in BCWS column in Project Desktop.

    BCWS column calculate values from tasks that has work and material resources, but ignore cost resources in the calculation. This is wrong and make a distortion in Earned Value results (BCWP column).

    Please, solve this error making BCWS column calculate cost resources in the tasks as well.

  7. Reporting or managing project portfolios is hard

    In project for web, one hand things are made easier as compared to project online, on other essential asks like reporting and managing portfolios is not handled in same respect.
    we have to essentially found power platform experienced folks to get in to achieve this.

    Is this something which Microsoft is trying to also ease out?

  8. Project for the web: Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes

    Currently the Task entity in CDS is locked. Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes. Also adding additional fields to type the activities in the schedule, would be helpful.

  9. Collaboration experience on teams

    We started trying project app in teams. The experience doesn't seem to be ready for active collaboration. Few examples are like other users are not known, you cant chat in project context, if others are not online then its confusing.
    Please fix this to complete project app in teams with collaboration.

  10. Project for the web - Threaded Comments

    Perhaps this has already been suggested, but the way Planner allows to review the comments added to a task much like a SharePoint discussion is a great feature and it would be a great improvement to the new Project for the web.

  11. 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.

  12. Teams integration incomplete

    Teams integration seems incomplete without having guest access, notification and support in private channels. I see the old request has been marked completed and closed, can you share plan for these also, or atleast mark original as partially completed

  14. can we add support to create projects with templates

    Common provision in project management solutions , is to just get them quickly started. And some of them have really meaningful usage and get us started. This is something i have seen Microsoft provide in various apps, so can project for web also add it?

  15. Allow more than 500 Tasks in a Project

    Project is not allowing a project to include more than 500 project tasks. There does not seem to be published documentation of a limit to the number of tasks.

  16. 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

    Hi all!

    Thanks so much for your feedback. I’m happy to announce you can now add attachments to your tasks in Project!

    You can use this new feature by opening your task details in Project. The add attachment button is available at the bottom of that pane.

    Please let us know what you think of this new feature!

  17. Edit experience is sluggish

    As a project manager I work with my crew of 15-20 folks. We use MS teams and office 265 for all our collaboration purpose and documentation within our company. I recently learnt about Microsoft new project management app on teams. Its good to see it being simple, but its just not ready for teams. When we have feature crew working together it becomes hard to understand changes happening and the changes just become slow to reflect. Can this be fixed?

    I have seen similar slowness in PowerPoint, however excel looks great in this regard.

  18. 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.

    Hi everyone!

    You might have noticed that you can filter by string on the Grid view. You can now filter on task names and assignees (check the top right corner of your projects!)

    I’m marking this as partially complete, as I know there were many other asks here. Please continue sharing your needs and scenarios around filtering.

    Thank you!
