  1. 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)

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Read only permission for new projects

    Not everyone should be able to create a new project. In our scenario every project manager should have read permission but "normal" project members should be on "read-only" instead.

  7. More excel like funtionality

    Hi,

    to improve the usability it would be good to be able to:


    • Paste activity lists from excel.

    • Copy by dragging like in project online

    • Import plans from project online

  8. 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.

  9. It would be really good if you can extract Project online to an excel or PDF document

    It would be really good if you can extract Project online to an excel or PDF document so that it can be shared with others who dont have the access to project online

  10. Allow directly adding project team members without Office 365 Group (in Project for the web)

    Allow directly adding project team members without Office 365 Group (in Project for the web). Similar to the "modern workplace" in Power BI, please allow adding multiple individual users or Office 365 Groups to a project as members.

  11. 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.

  12. timeline zoom

    Zoom function for project timeline does not zoom enough out to get a good overview of a project with long duration. Should be possibel to show the whole project in one view.

  13. Assign Project for Web tasks should appear in Tasks App in Teams

    Teams Tasks app (Soon to be launched) will show a list of all tasks assigned to you in either Planner or To Do. It would be pretty cool if it also showed line items from Projects for the Web.

  14. Project as a tab in Teams: Do not require license for viewing

    When adding a tab in Teams for Project, many stakeholders are interested in viewing the plan, but it is very impractical to have to manage licenses for a potentially large group of people who just want to take a quick look.

    Therefore, it should be default that anybody with an Office365 license should be able to just look at plans. For those who have assigned tasks, the current licensing structure is fine.

  15. Partial Finish to Start + Start to Start

    Sometimes a task is not dependent on another task finishing, but rather is dependent on another task being near completion (ie. Task 8 is scheduled to start when Task 7 is 1 week away from completion).

    Similarly, it would be beneficial to be able to schedule two tasks to be predicated on each other (ie. Task 8 is scheduled to start at the same time as Task 7 - Neither 7 nor 8 can begin without the other).

  16. 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.

  17. default instance

    To extend project for the web via cds, this is only achievable via leveraging the default CDS instance. The default instance is not designed to be production therefore creating a powerapp for end users leveraging this is not a good idea (as the whole company has environment maker access). We need the ability to create a production instance for CDS for project for the web.

  18. Check Out/Publish vs Live Project Updates in New Project

    This is less of a suggestion but more of a clarification request. With this new Project product, the planning methodology seems to have fundamentally shifted from a 'check out file, make/test schedule changes, and publish' to a more 'live planning' approach where any changes are pushed instantly. There are still some businesses that do not plan in this way and are more sensitive to changes in dates, especially when automation (e.g. email/push notifications) are applied to the schedule. How does Microsoft plan to accommodate for organizations who may not want all of their planning to be published in real-time?

  19. Apply calendar/work template to project level (in Project for the web)

    There is only way to set calendar/work template to Resources. But calendar/work template does not apply to project level.
