  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. Need to have the possibility of visualizing the schedule critical path.

    Function available in MS Project but not in project for the web yet. This is one of the minimum tool to make project for the web effective in my organization.

  5. Integration between Microsoft Projects and PowerPoint Timeline Add-In

    It would be very helpful to be able to integrate Microsoft Projects to the PowerPoint Timeline add-in to be able to pull tasks directly from Projects with durations and % complete directly into PowerPoint to reduce the redundancy of having to keep the same tasks updated in two separate locations

  7. Set a colour scheme for the timeline and roadmap

    In the timeline it would be useful visually to be able to set a different colour from a different group of parent tasks and milestone. Or, this automatically is selected from a new colour. The colour should be taken from the lead parent task, not every parent task.
    In the roadmap, this should be a different colour for a different project and then still select the tasks status, but this appear as an icon instead of changing the colour of the task.

  8. Allow users to organize projects into various categories / folders

    I use MS Project for organizing various tasks related to an idea or delivery.

    Microsoft should develop support for a new class of MS Project users.
    These users, like me, use MS Project primarily to organize tasks relating to a project. They don't care about aspects such as Risk, Time, Team, etc.

    Their use of MS Project is for themselves to do things in an organized manner. Basically MS Project is a To-Do List with features such as sub-tasks, dependency chain, etc

    Since a user willl work on different things, it is necessary that they be able to organize their…

  9. Add Actual Start, Actual Finish, and Remaining Duration

    When projects are in the execution phase, task process needs to be tracked using Actual Start, Actual Finish, and Remaining Duration if not finished as of the Status Date.

  11. Ability to color code to the to projects or add tags / labels.

    In my use case, we are using the time line few to easily see projects and dependencies over time. If I could group them by colors or tags, that would be really helpful in my measuring of progress. The label function already exists on Planner.

  12. Can I use project for web with SharePoint instead of CDS?

    CDS needs
    - extra license

  14. Assign task to guest users and allow write access

    Currently we can only assign to internal users. External users can read the schedule in Project for the Web, but cannot update existing tasks. Please allow paid or unpaid access for guest users.

  15. Implement Version History/Change Tracking

    Team members who make changes to a project task's start/finish date or duration may not realize how it impacts dependent tasks/milestones. PMs need to be accountable for the project plan and if a change was made, I'd like to be able to see who made it and when, especially if I need to confirm whether it was intentional or not. As an alternative, presenting the user with a notification that their change will impact dependent tasks may deter accidental updates.

  16. Export timeline to PDF with start & End Dates shown on timeline

    need to be able to export the web-based MS Project timeline with tasks to pdf to be able to share within company team as well as external suppliers. the export to excel is pointless and just creates another document I have to manage and update as the schedule changes. Need to enable export to PDF. By doing so, take the full or user selected portions of the timeline and export/create a PDF of it with the start and end dates shown in the timeline bars.
    As it is now, I feel like its a schedule only for me and I…

  17. Automatically group subtasks by bucket in the board view

    If you create a plan in the Grid view and flip to the Board view, all your tasks are in 1 bucket. It would be nice if they made a bucket for each promoted task and all the related subtasks were under each respective bucket.
