  1. Allow us to choose a customer from a lookup, when creating a project

    Right now a customer can only be added on the Model-driven side of project, which causes additional work and requires a user two use two different UIs. Please allow us to choose a customer from a lookup field, when creating a new project. This should be available in the Office UI and Unified Interface. This will also allow for significantly easier extensibility of P4W.

  2. Allow us to type in a project's name before it's saved to CDS

    At them moment all projects are created as "Untitled Project". This is causing issues extending project as we can't programmatically change a project's name (msdyn_subject). Please allow us to enter a name for a project before it is saved in CDS.

    "Untitled Project" will also cause issues with duplicate detection with duplicate detection rules and alternate keys.

  3. Manager Overview of Projects Assigned to Dept

    I am not currently a user of MS Project but I am doing some research to see if it would be a good fit for our company.

    Is there a way for the Manager of the PMO to see a high level overview of all the projects assigned to the Project Managers in the department and their projected timelines?

  4. Allow duplicate detection with alternate keys on the msdyn_subject (name) field

    Enabling duplicate detection rules is a standard requirement in all implementations. Since Project now names all new projects as "Untitled Project", duplicate detection becomes challenging. Please allow us to use alternate keys for duplicate detection, when a key is tied to msdyn_subject i.e the "name" field.

  5. 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…

  9. Problems with dates in MS Proj

    the resources are only considered on your sub project plan

    Then when I open the master plan – it re shuffles the resources to remove over allocations

    But then the dates you put in are overridden and this may not be what you want.

    Please help me!

  10. Reconnect broken dependency when task is deleted

    When deleting a task that has a dependency (before and after) the after dependency ought to automatically connect to the before dependency of the deleted task.

    This would keep the Gantt chart from sliding all the way back to the beginning of the schedule when the dependency is removed and requiring the user to reconnect it to another task manually when in a timeline view.

    At least have a dialog appear to select another dependency if this instance occurs. Something like, "The task you selected to delete is dependent to a following task, do you wish to reconnect this following…

  11. Power BI template which includes Project for the Web AND PWA projects (and Planner?)

    Most organisations will find themselves using a mixture of Project Online, Project (for the Web) and Planner to assign and manage tasks. From a management perspective we need a single report which shows progress and resource utilisation across all projects for it to be a useful tool. At present there are separate Power BI templates for the 2 versions of Project so we have to manually compare which takes a significant amount of time. Please could you provide a template which shows Project and Project Online information. I'd be interested in others views on Planner as well - not critical…

  12. Add a Timer for task in Project for the web

    I think it can be usefull to add a timer to calculate work done on task.
    It would be useful to have a meter to have a way to measure the efforts made.

    So Project for the web could be able to track the smallest project efficiently and it would be possible to track the time worked no nedd for a complex timesheet module.

    It is thus possible to follow the progress 0-50-100 and to have the efforts total by a simple resources meter. So I can track the work and the effort easily.

  13. Match Floating Questions to your Daily Actions

    Make a matching program that links each experience with all the potential questions that someone made in the internet about this particular thing and are not answered in the last year or haven't get any solid answer when they are new. I search countless times for things that are happening in the world countless times to countless people who could have answered and noone never happened to care to answer questions because its natural that everyone cares to answer but this way you will help people who care to help answering questions of the world, give their valuable info!

  16. Allow new fields created in Power Apps to be added to the project.microsoft.com site views

    At the moment (unless im missing something) when you create Custom fields in Project, Project Task and Resource entities they are not usable in the project.microsoft.com user interface. This interface is great for end users but the inability to add custom fields is rendering it useless ATM.

  18. A New Tool for Linking Construction Planning with Microsoft Project

    I developed a tool and tutorials for linking data from Autodesk Revit to Microsoft Project.
    This can attract the attention of construction managers, and they can transfer data from Autodesk Revit planning to Microsoft Project. This tool helps you move from 3D planning to 4D and 5D planning with Microsoft Project.
