  1. Ability to set own date format for MS Project Web - currently mm/dd/yyyy

    Add some basic date/time functionality to the MS Project Web and allow the user to set up date format as needed. Currently it is locked to MM/DD/YYYY, which is probably great for US but less so for other places.

  2. Import existing plans into MS Project Web - .Mpp and .Xls files for easy switch-over

    In my team we are looking into switching to MS Project Web as we can have it in the Teams interface. However, the lack of ability to import tasks from .mpp or .xls files means we cannot do it on projects already in progress - because no one wants to take the mind-numbing task of entering tasks one by one from an existing list.
    The ability to import existing tasks - including if someone made a temp list using Excel - would add some serious legs to this app in my opinion.

  3. Drag and Drop Tasks to Timeline

    Scheduling a task currently requires the tasks detail window to be opened and then a date selected within the calendar popup. Dragging and dropping from the task list to the timeline would help speed up this process.

  4. Back-up and version history

    Back-up and version history is required or at least a way to export the Project file. Currently there is now way to revert a older version of Project when a mistake is made. It has happened several times that one team member checks one major task as done which after all subtasks got checked and if the user doesn't undo (Ctrl + Z) right away all the progress data is lost. A fix is needed soon as this is a major issue!

  5. Tasks sign

    Hi everyone!
    I would like to ask, if I sign a task for somebody in the Project why doesn't this person receive an email about it?
    Because if I sign a task in the Planner for somebody, this person receive an email.

    Regards

  6. The ability to Insert a Subproject to a Project in order to create a Master Project Similar to that of PWA

    Much like the option in PWA to insert a Subproject (see attached). It would be great to be able to do this with P4W. This would benefit users who have multiple smaller projects that all relate or have dependences on each other to view those projects and task in one Project. The alternative right now is to open up all of the projects and then bounce around between tabs as you discuss with the team.

  7. Allow adding Azure DevOps items as tasks in Project for the Web projects

    It's possible to add work items from Azure DevOps to Roadmap now. But it's still not possible to do the same for project in Project for the Web.

    With this feature we could combine agile project planning in DevOps and waterfall style planning in Projects for the Web. Also we could see the Devops Planning in the PowerBI reporting.

  9. Need to be able to specify non working times or be able to make all days nonworking days

    My work has an AWS schedule for employees (alternative work schedule). 12 hour days 6 to 6. Working 2 days, off 2, working 3 days and then the next week is opposite. Day shift AWS can be easily created using exceptions as their shift starts and ends on the same day. Night shift 6PM to 6AM is not possible. If I could specify non working times not just choosing the whole day I could make it work. Either that or I can make every day a default non working day and use exceptions to state specific working times.

  10. Enterprise custom fields for Project for the Web Projects

    Establish custom fields to be used by certain projects for portfolio reporting. Although you are considering adding capabilities for custom fields, it appears those would be added to each project by the project manager. Are we able to establish custom fields to be applied to projects within the portfolio that we select.

  12. Image to identify Project, Task and Roadmap than just a text-only name

    For design/marketing projects and tasks, the users who need to keep track of their work are design artists and genuinely "visual". It is essential and very crucial to enable them to identify their work with images throughout the entire project management.

    So the request is:
    A Project, a Task, a Roadmap, each of them with its own image thumbnail (with a full size image uploaded and shown when clicked on, of course).

    This naturally shortens the time and makes things much easier for key users to look at the whole map, status, and results than by a "text only" name.…

  13. Flag Notes

    The Notes feature is useful, and I've been using it to post reminders for the individuals assigned to a Task within that Task. However, unless that person uses the info button, the notes are missed. It would be nice if Tasks that had Notes were flagged in some way; be it via text color or an icon.

  14. Give product a nickname to improve internet searchability

    I really love this product. But trying to find any technical or even basic user information is extremely difficult because if you do an internet search for Project for Web you get back tons of information on unrelated project software or Project Online. So it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

    A nickname would solve this. Project4Web or something like that would bring us to the right technical resources and improve adoption of the product. Thank you.

  19. Newly added tasks in board view should go to the bottom of the bucket (FIFO)

    The current methodology for Planner and Project boards expects a LIFO approach i.e. the most recent task added is the first one I am likely to complete. We need a setting to toggle it to FIFO for those of us who enter tasks in the approximate order we expect them to get handled.
