  1. 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

    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?

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Enterprise custom fields for Project for the Web Projects

    Establish custom fields to be used by certain projects for portfolio reporting. Although you are considering adding capabilities for custom fields, it appears those would be added to each project by the project manager. Are we able to establish custom fields to be applied to projects within the portfolio that we select.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Project for the Web local data storage in UAE and South Africa

    Project for the Web data is currently not stored locally in data centers in South Africa and the UAE. Some customers don't mind that some of their data is stored in a European data center, but for some customers in-country data residency could be a blocker

  13. 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. Provide Project Web, Plan 1 for nonprofits

    Microsoft Project Plan 1 does not seem to be available for nonprofits (at least not with nonprofit pricing). P1 does not show up as an option to purchase in our tenant. P3 and P5 do (with nonprofit pricing). P1 is perfect for nonprofits. Please bring it to nonprofits (with nonprofit pricing)!

  15. 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

  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. Group by assigned to

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

  19. 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.

  20. Permission Management

    Owner should be able to manage permissions to tasks, and by default a task should be only visible to "Assigned To" where he can only edit progress and comments, everything else should be editable by the Owner.
