  1. Manual mode tasks

    Please allow tasks to be scheduled in “manual mode” allowing for Project Managers to define start and finish date without auto calculating the effort.

    Thank you all for voting on this! Can you all share more about what you’re looking to do with custom fields?

    What kinds of information would you put in them? Why?

    Are you looking to only put them on tasks? Or, on projects and resources as well?

    Do you want each field you create to appear in just for one project? All your projects? Would you be creating them for other people to use in their projects?

    Thanks for your help,
    The Project Team

  3. Add templates to project for the web

    When creating a new project we don't want to start from scratch each time. We should be able to select a type of project (or an existing one) and use that as a starting point.

  4. Project for the web: Add existing Planner capabilities (e.g. document attachments, checklists, priority)

    Add existing Planner capabilities to the task details of Project for the Web (e.g. document attachments, checklists, priority, comments). Also @mentioning as new feature would be great.

    Hi everyone!

    We agree with you here! This is something we want to do — and we’ll keep you updated here on it.

    Is there anything you don’t like about the capabilities? Where do you think it can be improved? Which features do you need most to be most successful from Planner that don’t exist in Project yet?

    Thanks!

  5. Two way integration with microsoft planner and Microsoft projects

    Have full in depth integration between microsoft planned and Project to ensure the reach is greater and not limitted to the Project environment, Ideally it should also link to PWA and the full Microsoft Projects.

    Hi everyone!

    Can you please share why you are asking for a two way integration for Planner and Project? We are thinking a bit about a one way integration (import) from Planner to Project, but would like to better understand the ask for a two way integration.

    If you could share scenarios and stories on why this is important, this would help us better understand the problem so that we can best support our customers!

    To clarify – this post is in the “Project for the web” category, so the feedback should be aligned to the right application!

  6. Project for the web: Change licensing to allow for extensibility at a sensible price

    Currently extending Project for the Web with the Power Platform requires a Project Plan P3/P5 subscription. This very expensive given that you already have to pay for a PowerApps subscription as well. This is especially drastic if you need to provide access for team members. Their numbers are normally much higher than the PMs.

  7. Teams Integration

    Similar to Planner's integration. Having a site part that points is not good enough.

  8. Resource Management

    We need to be able to plan resources within project for the web and the ability to get an overview over all projects in our portfolio including a view if someone is overbooked etc.

    Hi everyone!

    This is something we’re thinking about – but we’d love more feedback from you.

    Can you share specific scenarios that you need for resourcing? What information do you need to be successful? What actions do you take as a result of this information?

    Please share detailed scenarios for us to understand what you need, this will be very helpful to us as we improve Project!

  10. Allow better Extensibility in the CDS

    Allow programatic editing of the entities for Project for the web. Such as editing all Project/Task fields, creating new Tasks, Assigning Resources to tasks, etc.

    This will enable users and Partners to extend the Project For the Web platform and integrate with other applications.

  11. Edit Project for web schedule in Project Desktop app

  12. Saving Baseline (Project for the Web)

    One of the biggest advantages of the MS Project (and Project Online) to the other compactor products in web based platforms is the possibility of having Baselines. Without a Baseline controlling the plan and having Planned vs Actual stats wouldn't be easy.
    Please add the option of saving baseline on any given status of the plan without overwriting them so w can compare current status with multiple baselines.

  13. Import mpp file into MS project Web

    It would be great to have a Button to Import mpp file into MS project Web.
    We usually use MS Project client (mpp file) to plan and monitor the project, and we can't even copy and paste MS fields to MS project web or upload the file directly. We have to replicate everything we have on the MS project Client by hand to MS project Web! That doesn't make sense at all!

  14. Make Project on the Web available in new Environments

    Power Platform supports multiple environments (Automate and Apps). It should be possible to have a separate Project environment also. The default environment is not enough for global organizations and multiple, different entities. Make it possible to create Project environments just like Automate (Microsoft Flow) and Power Apps.

  15. Project for the web : Tasks effort not linked to duration

    We should be able to specify a effort on a tasks that is less than a working day without affecting the duration.

    Example : I have a resource on my project that is shared with other teams. I only have him/her 2 hours a day, and this time for 10 working days is enough to complete the task. So I want to have a task with 10 working days duration with a total effort of 20 hours.

    In the current state, if I indicate the duration, it will automatically change the effort to a full day work (80 hours), if…

  16. Guest access to projects

    Often there are external users from customers or freelance involved which should have access to a project or roadmap as well without the need of having a project license. This is possible in other project management solutions!

  17. Report Feature in Project for the Web

    Have a "Reports" link next to Timeline, on this page have a global "web part" / global admin UI that enabled customers to upload a Power BI report that filtered for the the current Project using the ?projectId query string. This would enable customers to easily build Power BI reports and surface them in the same UI rather than having to navigate to a different application to see reports. Power BI Embedded type approach maybe but out of the box.

  18. Project for the web: Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes

    Currently the Task entity in CDS is locked. Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes. Also adding additional fields to type the activities in the schedule, would be helpful.

  19. Project for the Web: Import/export function for MPP files

    It would help if there would be at least an import/export function for MPP files to give accidental PMs the option to send their schedule to a customer and also to pick up on work that started in the Project client

  20. Update Icon for Project

    Although it is more of a cosmetic improvement, updating the Project icon to the new modern look would go a long way to help reinforce that Project is still moving forward just like the rest of the O365 apps and not stuck in some forgotten junk pile.

    Heck, even Planner has a new icon!

    I have enclosed a sample of new Project icons for your consideration. Please vote and post which icon you prefer.

    This is simple and easy fix and shows that you care about Project that is extensively used by PM community.
