  1. Allow Status Managers to see the breakdown of billable and non-billable time in the Approvals Center

    Once a team member has submitted task updates for approval, the project manager or Status Manager can preview those updates and accept or reject them.

    Currently the Status Manager's are unable to see the split between the non-billable and billable time on the time approvals section and adding this into the view would be really useful.

  2. Custom Field visibility within Power BI or Power Automate

    Newly launched custom fields are local to project and not available in PowerBI reports or in PowerApps built on Project for the web.

    Having the custom fields visible within Power BI would allow for more advanced filtering / sorting - which right now requires creating either separate projects, or a separate linked metadata table. With the custom fields, it would be easier to relate tasks to other data sources / and collapse the number of projects.

  3. Color Coding - Ability to color code tasks/bars/cards

    I would like the ability to color code different aspects of the roadmap as well as the project tasks. Currently within the gnatt chart you only see blue and maybe read on the timeline. I would like to be able to customize these colors based on different tags if possible or just basic color coding if not tagged based.

  4. Adding Milestones in the MS Project for MS Teams integration

    I can't find a way to add a milestone into the MS Project for MS Teams integration - only tasks. This is a critical aspect of project planning and management.

  5. Roadmap Views

    Allow the ability to create custom views for a roadmap.

    This way I can have a compact view that shows a lot of info and display it on a tv as a dashboard but still be able to read it.

    A slider for just showing date and some filters do not really allow us to customize the data as much.

    This is also a lot of wasted real estate in white padding on the roadmap page. See read areas in the small sample screenshot.

    The possibility to create a tight, easy to read, visible view would be very nice.

  6. Task private/public setting

    I need an ability for task admin to manage task private setting for project members, so that admin can control access to viewing tasks. Specifically, I want assign each project to each member with private setting, so that each member can focus on their own tasks which assigned to them. If this setting become available, task admin can create tasks in the project before publishing the project to members.

  7. Integrate Microsoft Project and To Do

    Is there anyway to integrate Microsoft Project with To Do? It'd be great if I could organize all of the tasks assigned to me in Project by "Today", "Tomorrow", "This Week" etc so I can manage my work without seeing everyone else's tasks (similar to Asana's "My Tasks" tab. Without that functionality it's very hard to manage my own daily work and I'd prefer to not have to recreate my own to do list that includes the descriptions, links, documents, etc

  8. Project for the web - estimate effort per resource when assigning multiple resources to one task

    What is really missing in project for the web is the scenario when you want to assign multiple resources to one task, and estimate a different effort for both resources on that task.

    E.g:

    1 task:
    Resource A - 20hours
    Resource B - 60 hours

  9. Project for the web - Threaded Comments

    Perhaps this has already been suggested, but the way Planner allows to review the comments added to a task much like a SharePoint discussion is a great feature and it would be a great improvement to the new Project for the web.

  10. Shift task dates

    Please add a feature where you can shift all task dates forwards or backwards in one go, without the need to manually move each task.

  11. 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.

  12. Roadmap - Share live roadmap with external users via link

    A customer of mine recently came to me with a challenge in relation to sharing a live roadmap with their customers, which i assumed was a feature that "just had to be available" in a project management tool, as they have several customers that frequently demand an updated roadmap to view. This specific customer is using Project for the web, but every version should have this feature.

    Exporting the roadmap to a file and then sharing it, is timeconsuming and might be challenging if you have many "stakeholders" in a project that needs an updated version at all times.

  14. Project for the Web REST API documentation and samples

    It would help integration scenarios tremendously if the the Project for the Web REST API (e.g. "https://project.microsoft.com/pss/api/v1.0/projects") could be documented and rendered more accessible by providing samples. One scenario that would be fitting is the creation and update of tasks triggered by another tool/event.

  15. Sort and filter project timeline by assignee

    I love the timeline feature, but for a big team it's hard to see when any one contributer is overloaded. Could you please make it possible to sort and filter by who is assigned to each task?

  16. Allow more than 500 Tasks in a Project

    Project is not allowing a project to include more than 500 project tasks. There does not seem to be published documentation of a limit to the number of tasks.

  17. Export to PDF with option to scale to sheet size

    Exporting the project Timeline needs to have the option to scale the print to a particular paper size. For a long project with a lot of tasks the schedule is broken into many pages, starting with tasks that fit on the first page and continues to the end of project. Then it will go to the next tasks that fit on a page and go out to the end of the project. Print options to scale and manipulate the margins, as well as the ability to not print all sub-tasks are needed in the export to pdf function.

  18. Able to update status for tasks without Project Web License

    Need an easy way for outside vendors to just update their task status - no matter what platform they are on (such as Google). Everything else should be READ ONLY. Someone gets assigned to a project for one lousy task and you are expected to pay $10 a month just for that person to update their status on the project??

  19. Task assignment notifications in teams

    As in Planner it would be very useful if an assignee gets a notification right within Microsoft Teams when a task has been assigned. And also important, the ability to get notifications in Teams only and optional also as an e-mail.

  20. Project for the web - Copy Project

    I'm at a conference, and customers are interested in Project for the web. However, they are adamant that it have both (a) templates for starting projects, and (b) the ability to copy an existing project to a new one. With those features, they may be interested in trying it.

    Hi everyone!

    You can now access “Copy Project” by going into a project, clicking on the title to open the details pane, hitting the “…” in the top corner, and then the Copy command.

    You can learn more about Copy Project and get Tips & Tricks here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/copying-projects-in-project-for-the-web/ba-p/1477766

    Please let us know what you think and continue to share your feedback with us!
