  1. Add all types of links (Start - Start, Finish - Finish, Start - Finish)

    Users can't create the correct schedule only with Finish - Start link. Please add other three types of links - Start - Start, Finish - Finish, Start - Finish

  2. 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.

    Hi everyone!

    I’m updating this to “partially complete” as we have finished rolling out the “Copy Project” feature. You can access this by opening a project, clicking on the title to open the details pane, hitting the “…” in the top corner, and then the Copy command.

    You can get more details, tips and tricks here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/copying-projects-in-project-for-the-web/ba-p/1477766

    We’re still thinking about the specific templates scenario and reading your comments below. Please try the feature out and let us know what other feedback/improvements can be made.

  3. security

    Changing Project Manager should also change/sync to the Owner field.

    Did a security review video that explains in details what is currently happening to showcase why an update on Project for the web security features are highly needed for larger organizations:

  4. Teams Integration

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

  5. Provide Project Web, Plan 1 for nonprofits

    Microsoft Project Plan 1 does not seem to be available for nonprofits (at least not with nonprofit pricing). P1 does not show up as an option to purchase in our tenant. P3 and P5 do (with nonprofit pricing). P1 is perfect for nonprofits. Please bring it to nonprofits (with nonprofit pricing)!

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for the feedback on baselines. I’d love to hear more, and get a discussion going to understand the needs and usage here.

    What’s the most important set of information in a baseline? How often do you take baselines? How often do you compare baselines?

    For those of you who have not previously used the desktop client or Project Online, how have you been tracking baselines on your projects?

    Thanks!

  10. Permission Management

    Owner should be able to manage permissions to tasks, and by default a task should be only visible to "Assigned To" where he can only edit progress and comments, everything else should be editable by the Owner.

  11. Project for the Web local data storage in UAE and South Africa

    Project for the Web data is currently not stored locally in data centers in South Africa and the UAE. Some customers don't mind that some of their data is stored in a European data center, but for some customers in-country data residency could be a blocker

  12. 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.

    Hello everyone!

    Thanks for your feedback! You can now customize and extend the Project app without purchasing additional Power Apps licenses, making it easier for your organization to tailor Project Plan 5, Project Plan 3, and Project Plan 1 to meet your business needs.

    Read more about this on our blog: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/customizing-and-extending-the-project-app-just-became-more/ba-p/1878008

  13. Notifications

    In the new Project for Web, allow users to customize email notifications about tasks which are assigned to them, have been updated, etc. Does not seem to be an option to do so, and it's critical for my team to be notified about their tasks.

    It would be useful to enable editing project schedule in Project for web via Project Desktop app.

    Hi everyone!

    I’d like to understand why you need to edit the schedule in the desktop app, versus just in the web? What key components can be improved for you to work in the web, without needing the client?

    If we provided an import from .mpp to the web, would you be able to be successful managing your project in the web? If no, why not?

    Thank you! We love hearing your feedback.

  15. 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.

  16. Assign Project for Web tasks should appear in Tasks App in Teams

    Teams Tasks app (Soon to be launched) will show a list of all tasks assigned to you in either Planner or To Do. It would be pretty cool if it also showed line items from Projects for the Web.

  18. Enable users to access their own Roadmap data in CDS

    Enable users to access their own Roadmap data in CDS

    Description of current (bad) situation

    All Roadmap data are stored in CDS* in the Default Power Apps environment. Unfortunately users cannot access their data in CDS (using CDS connectors in various apps/services) by default. For example:
    1. When user try to use Power BI to connect to roadmap data, the default behaviour is, that user gets error message which contains something like "ResourceAccessForbiddenException".
    2. When user try to explore entities in CDS directly, or try to use CDS Power Apps & Power Automate connector, the default behavior is,…

  19. Tasks have the ability to align with the SF, FS, SS, FF of another task

    Many Project Managers use the SF, FS, SS, FF as described by this Wiki

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependency(projectmanagement)

    Would be very helpful as Finish to Start does not address concurrent, or deadline depedant tasks.

  20. 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.
