  1. Project for the Web is not available for Education customers.

    Not including Education customers who have A3/5 or Project-specific SKUs for Project for the Web is a big miss. Aside from cost, what are the barriers for switching this on for Education?

    • Project Plan 3 for students

    Hope this helps!

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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!

  5. Project as a tab in Teams: Do not require license for viewing

    When adding a tab in Teams for Project, many stakeholders are interested in viewing the plan, but it is very impractical to have to manage licenses for a potentially large group of people who just want to take a quick look.

    Therefore, it should be default that anybody with an Office365 license should be able to just look at plans. For those who have assigned tasks, the current licensing structure is fine.

  6. Project for the web - Keep column width

    Project for the web - when I adjust column widths it would be useful if those adjustments remained consistent the next time I went into Project for the web. This would be especially useful when framing Project for the web in Teams because of the limited screen space.

  7. 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.

  8. Collapse tasks at the summary level

    I like PfW a lot but I run projects that have a lot of phases and then sub-tasks. I would like to be able to open my project with the Summary Tasks (or phases) collapsed - this is the main reason I have stopped using Project for the Web. Every time I re-open it all my Summary Tasks are expanded so I have to start by collapsing all the ones that are complete just to get a focused few of a particular section.

    I couldn't find this as an existing request, if it is already somewhere else please let me…

    Hi everyone!

    Today, we added improved Roadmap zooming! If you go to your Roadmap, you’ll be able to zoom out to multiple stops and views, and as far out as 6 years!

    Thank you for everyone who shared their feedback and scenarios – please let us know what you think.

  10. Milestones in Project for the web

    It would be great if there was the possibility to create milestones in project for the web. These should be marked with a special symbol so that everyone can see them at a glance (e.g. in the grid view or timeline).

    We pitched the new project software in our company but our employees see milestones as a necessary feature, so we can‘t go live yet.

  13. Undo complete subtasks

    If an user accidentally completes a task with subtasks, they are all marked completed, and there is no way to undo this. The user doesnt know the previous state. Please introduce a undo button like when deleting a task its possible to undo this.

  16. Roadmap to add project summary task

    When adding items to a row, Roadmap does not allow adding project summary row. This would be good feature because Roadmap can show start and end of project.

  17. it is not clear how to make task name wide enough to contain the entire line

    I am using Plan 1 and I could not figure out how to make the column "Name" automatically widen to the longest line used for a task name. I have to widen it manually and it is so dumb that it does not even remember my choice i.e. I have to widen it again if i come back to the project.

  20. P4W: remember, which tasks are minimized/hided in grid and timeline

    Every time I open the project, all higher-level tasks are maximized and the contained subtasks show up in the grid. It would be great if P4W could remember, which higher-level tasks I have minimized and show them as minimized every time I open the project again.
