  1. 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.

  3. Project for the Web Custom Fields Available for Reporting Using PowerBI

    Project for the Web Custom Fields and PowerBI: As I develop the enterprise portfolio of projects for my institution, it is important that I allow project managers to use their tool of choice (i.e. MS Project within a Project Online environment for the more experienced PM and Project for the Web for the less experienced PM). There are some strategic projects that do not require the power of MS Project. However, they should be included in the portfolio for reporting purposes. Ultimately, the portfolio would be dynamic if we were using PowerBI and a flag would be used to determine…

  4. Link between PWA/Planner/Email/Microsoft Team/Power BI

    A few feedback for the new project feature of the online web version.
    1. Function 1

    Link the tasks with Planner. So that should be able to be seen in Planner. 
    

    1. Function 2
      Link the tasks with PWA, so tasks can be synchronized

    2. Function 3
      Tasks should have the communication channel which should be inside Microsoft Team.

    3. Function 4
      Attachment should be added and should be seen in Grid

    4. Category for the tasks as "new function" "risk" "issue"

    5. Dashboard for tasks.
      Budget and Cost
      Late tasks
      Risks and issues

    Hopefully these improvement can be considered. Honestly, Microsoft project is far…

  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. 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?

  10. Improve Training Videos on Project for the Web and Project Online

    One of the biggest problems is lack of training video's on Project for the Web and implementation/integration of Project where I have some users that are very small projects and need Project for the Web for simplicity and some users that have large ongoing projects that need Project Professional for its extended capabilities. There needs to be clear definition on how to use these as a single platform and what reports are available without the use of Power BI (too expensive for small companies).

    In addition, there is very little available in training video's for the overall implementation and use…

  11. Allow Status Managers to see the breakdown of billable and non-billable time in the Approvals Center

    Once a team member has submitted task updates for approval, the project manager or Status Manager can preview those updates and accept or reject them.

    Currently the Status Manager's are unable to see the split between the non-billable and billable time on the time approvals section and adding this into the view would be really useful.

  14. Expand the limit of smallest value

    ​If you input "0.0001" in the working time field, it turns into “0”. I want it to be shown "0.0001" as I entered. Please expand the limit of the smallest value that can be entered here.

  16. Custom Field visibility within Power BI or Power Automate

    Newly launched custom fields are local to project and not available in PowerBI reports or in PowerApps built on Project for the web.

    Having the custom fields visible within Power BI would allow for more advanced filtering / sorting - which right now requires creating either separate projects, or a separate linked metadata table. With the custom fields, it would be easier to relate tasks to other data sources / and collapse the number of projects.

  17. Must have features for labels and column for status "In Progress", "Done", "Waiting" etc.

    Unlike some other project tools, there are only states of a task - DONE or NOT DONE.

    There should be a dedicated column to mark different statuses like "In progress", "Closed", "Waiting", "Completed", "Blocked" etc.

  18. Issues and Risks

    Love project for the web and it has excellent potential to be an amazing tool for project managers and businesses alike. Can you add issues and risks in a similar way to what you have one for pwa but in project for the web please? https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/add-a-risk-to-a-project-in-project-online-7aa1acc9-50cf-4f15-ac3b-fedf41b31c83

  19. My-to-do

    Make it easy for team members to quickly see what tasks have been assigned to them by having a my-to-do section. Currently, you have to open up each individual project to find the tasks assigned to you.
