  1. notifications not shown in teams and instead shown in as emails

    we are using project for web in teams. We recently learnt that for all our task updates notifications are being sent in outlook. Is there a way to change them to show up in teams instead of outlook?

  4. Group by assigned to

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  10. 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. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  20. Project timeline zoom out to quarter or year

    Really liking where you're headed with the user experience in Project for the web. However, an important enhancement to the Zoom feature would be to zoom out to by Quarter and by Year view.

    Thanks!
