  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. Project for the Web (P4W) should just be an upgrade to Planner

    Not sure why the Project team needed another app, they already have Project for Desktop, Project Pro, Project Online, Project Web App, and now Project for the Web. This should just be Planner - in fact it isn't much different than Planner, just has Grid and Timeline view which would be awesome for Planner in general! Just upgrade Planner and add the ability to sync Planner with Project for task sections. Anyone not in the Office 365 Group doing the work can have access to the Roadmap/Project plan, and then the Planner updates needed tasks in Project.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

    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

  11. 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?

  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. reccuring Task

    Would love to have the option to mark a task as reccurring after a provided time once it's completed once!

  14. Multiple non consecutive dates in a single task

    In some situations there is the need to have the same task over and over just because it repeats several times in the course of non consecutive dates.

    It would be nice to have only one tasks and define all these different dates in this same task.

  15. P4W: sort/filter in grid view

    At the moment, you can only show or hide columns in the grid view. It would be great if there was the possibility to filter and sort across all columns in the grid view, so you can for example display only the tasks that are assigned to a specific person or have to be completed on a specific date.

  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.

  18. Add the expected complete date and actual complete date

    I need to follow-up the task in project, so I need to know the initially expected finish date and actual finish date for each task

  19. Ability to have multiple calendars

    For example, allow us to have separate calendars for weekdays-only, 7-day, expected rainy days. Then, we could apply a specific calendar to each task and its duration would apply the correct finish dates based on the start date & calendar selected.

  20. 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.
