  1. Where are the online video tutorials for Project? It's 2019, it's all about video!

    I don't want to download your stupid PDF to figure out how to use your product. I want a video that shows me quickly how to setup my project. This is like basic 101 product training, why don't you guys have it?

  2. 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.

  3. Feature parity with Project Online

    We have customers that are looking into PMO tools but we can't advice them to start out with Project as long as they have to regress to the awful outdated Project Online for a lot of basic tasks. When we look at the roadmap, it appears that not much is about to change. Either you step up the development pace, or you abandon trying to flog project management software.

  4. 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.

  5. Milestones in Project for the web

    It would be great if there was the possibility to create milestones in project for the web. These should be marked with a special symbol so that everyone can see them at a glance (e.g. in the grid view or timeline).

    We pitched the new project software in our company but our employees see milestones as a necessary feature, so we can‘t go live yet.

  6. Ability to upload into Project

    Create a link between Planner and Project, so that Planner can upload to the new 365 Project online tool.
    Equally, be able to upload from Excel into the new Project tool.

    Love the new tool, but moving all of my Projects up to it is currently a very manual process.

  8. 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

  9. Theme and branding

    Many customers would like the ability to change the theme, much like creating and adding a theme in power bi.

    Theme and branding creates an emotional attachment. If this was possible I think it would make users feel good about using project.

    Its the small things sometimes 😊

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Layout options for quick navigation through projects

    It would be nice for project managers having a layout where you can run through the projects very quickly in a way as implemented in Microsofts Teams where the navigation on the left lets you run through the teams and channels without having to go back to the "Home" to see other projects I'm working on.

  13. 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.

  14. Enable Document Management for Projects in Project for the Web

    I can enable SharePoint document storage for the Project entity in the CDS, and the Projects library gets created in the SharePoint site, but there is no related tab in the Project tab in the app nor does there seem to be a way to add one.
    If I add a custom entity (e.g. Programs), the related tab does appear and I can upload documents specific to the item and these get stored in the corresponding SharePoint doc library.
    If I attach a document to a Project via Notes (CDS Timeline) it does not appear in the corresponding SharePoint doc…

  15. Follow/subscribe to task

    People sometimes have an interest or stake in a particular task. The only way to follow something now is to be assigned to it which is obviously far from ideal.

  16. P4W: Add key dates in timeline

    At the moment, you can only add key dates to the project roadmap. It would be helpful if you could also add keydates to the timeline in a specific project!

  17. Task assignment notifications in Project for the web

    When a task is assigned to someone in Project for the web, there should be an email notification sent to the assignee.

  18. Remove group from project

    Is there an ability to remove a group from a project once assigned?

    Doesn't look like its possible.

  19. Auto hide/minimize/collapse completed tasks on the Grid.

    Currently I have to always scroll or minimize completed tasks every time I open the project plan.

  20. Project Portfolio Planner Board

    The main purpose of this suggestion is to assist managing limited resource availability with typically small client facing projects (jobs), or anywhere that has the need to juggle projects. The solution should provide the ability to quickly view and update scheduling at the project level.

    Enable, through some method, a Planner Board in which the cards visible represent projects selected from a portfolio (or all active projects of a particular type(s) - if project types can be implemented).

    Much of the card would represent a read-only summary data of the project, though some details may be editable...
    1) Start date…
