  1. Make the date line configurable

    Make the date line configurable or, at least, much wider. It is barely recognizable as it is

  2. Planner in Roadmap

    Project Roadmap allows portfolio managers to bring in key tasks from Azure Boards and Projects in PWA.

    Planner is used for small, ongoing projects. Please include support to add tasks from Planner to Roadmap as this gives Portfolio managers a better view of all key information in a single screen

    Hi all!

    We’d love to hear more about using Planner in Roadmap. Would you connect multiple Plans together in one Roadmap? As a portfolio manager, would you bring in both Planner tasks and Project tasks in one Roadmap? What type of Planner tasks would you bring into this view? What else would you expect?

    Please share any details and feedback around this – we love hearing your thoughts!

  3. usage report project desktop

    It would be great to have a usage report for project desktop and get usage reports.
    There is a script for project online.
    For when this report?

    Thank you!

  4. Retain the previous view when Refreshing Project for the Web

    Project for the Web times out after a while, and you have to click 'Refresh' to bring it back to life. When I do that, it doesn't retain the view I was previously using. I usually work in Board view, and group by finish date. Whenever I Refresh it reverts to group by bucket, which seems to be the system default.

  5. Highlight Task/Gantt bar as “At Risk” in red on schedule or Timeline

    In Roadmap I can mark a task/summary as “At Risk or High Risk” and the color changes to red. It would be nice if I could also mark a task within the plan as “at risk” so it’s visually identifiable. The Gantt bar should also show as red so it stands out.

  11. Check Out/Publish vs Live Project Updates in New Project

    This is less of a suggestion but more of a clarification request. With this new Project product, the planning methodology seems to have fundamentally shifted from a 'check out file, make/test schedule changes, and publish' to a more 'live planning' approach where any changes are pushed instantly. There are still some businesses that do not plan in this way and are more sensitive to changes in dates, especially when automation (e.g. email/push notifications) are applied to the schedule. How does Microsoft plan to accommodate for organizations who may not want all of their planning to be published in real-time?

  12. Roadmap needs to allow notes to be associated with a project and/or tasks

    We use Project OnLine, and I use Roadmap to review programs status weekly with my PMs. It will be very useful if I can enter my notes on the entire project swim-lane or a particular task. Otherwise I have to keep switching between Roadmap and my note-taking application (I use Agenda on my Mac).

    Hi all!

    We appreciate the feedback and understanding your scenarios! As we plan/develop this, we would appreciate continuing detail on how you would use this, where you would use this (row level/item level), and how this would benefit you.

    Thanks again to our Uservoice community!

  13. Project for the Web: Multiple people viewing a project without affecting each other

    When multiple users are viewing or adjusting a project, they effect each others views. It would be great if multiple users did not affect each others view during that viewing session.

  15. add task to roadmap from P4W file, not led by roadmap

    Currently, to add a task to the roadmap in P4W, you need to add it from the roadmap view.

    I'd like to see an interaction similar to that in POL, where you can add a task to roadmap (if the project is on the roadmap to start with) from within the project file.

  16. Read-only permission for Roadmaps

    Currently everyone that has access to a roadmap can modify everything. Normally one would use a roadmap also to provide information to stakeholders. These shouldn't be able to modify the roadmap. Therefore read-only permissions would be helpful.

    Hi all!

    We just announced that anyone with an O365 license or Plan 1 license will soon be able to access Roadmaps in read only. You can learn more here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=60646

    Regarding the other scenario in this thread (re: everyone that has access to a roadmap can modify everything), we are still thinking about this and similar scenarios, so please keep sharing your feedback and experiences!

    Thanks!

  18. Move link to "Go to Project Online" to top of Project Home (instead of bottom)

    Move link to "Go to Project Online" to top of Project Home page (instead of bottom) so users who only use project online know where to go/have easy access and are not confused with New blank project option

  19. Roadmap and Calendar Integration

    Be able to do a roadmap with the Microsoft project online integration in queue but also, have a calendar view with the holiday and nonworking date, basically looking as a GANT view. after the schedule of the project is approved be able to add to a working calendar in outlook email. I can see the roadmap now but the activities by date is not showing in the calendar. This will be a good feature for any project scheduling. If a contruction company want to know when start a project while is doing few more other project this will help the…

  20. 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.…
