  1. 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. 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…

  5. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Outlook events

    Integrate with Outlook in order to automatically create events according to the tasks assigned to the user.
    If a task is an all-day task it should split the task according to the working hours.

  13. this feedback forum

    Project online desktop client feedback forum search is to broad, it should have an advanced search facility to drill down otherwise there are hundreds of results to trawl through. Which wastes my business time

  16. provide an overview of all calendar exceptions (vacation overview)

    For years, I am looking for a solution how to quickly see all the calendar exceptions for the complete project team at a time.
    I use the calendar exceptions to maintain people's absences like vacations. However, it is not possible to have an overview of the team's absences, e.g. to check if too many people from the same team are planning vacation at the same time.
    I have asked the community for help but there is only complex macros trying to create separate files from the calendar exceptions, or the idea to not use the calendar but rather maintain each…

  17. Include a column for cost field in project for the web

    In PRoject for the web there is no column to add cost to a task or project, I think this is necessary to be able to have an idea of the cost of the project.

  18. Statusing a Project in PfW

    PfW needs "Status Date" type functionality for the distribution of uncompleted and completed parts as they are known in Project. Seeing as how PfW only provides one method of tracking, Task Total with two variations (Completed Hours and % Complete), there needs to be some capability for making sure the past represents what has actually been completed, and the future represents what is left to be completed. With no status date functionality, no split task functionality, and with duration and work tied together, trying to maintain an accurate schedule during the execution phase of a project in PfW is not…
