  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?

    Hi everyone – we announced Project for the web being available for EDU a few weeks ago. The plans you’ll need to access it are as follows:

    • Project Plan 3 for students
    • Project Plan 3 for faculty
    • Project Plan 5 for students
    • Project Plan 5 for faculty

    Hope this helps!

  2. Group by assigned to

    Under the Board view add "Assigned to" under Group by - just like in Planner which uses the same board framework.

  3. 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.

  4. Ability to add attachments to a taks / subtask / project

    Hi there
    We need the ability to add attachments to a task/subtask and a project in general. Same functionality as in Planner. Ideally we can add attachments from anywhere in SharePoint across multiple teams.
    Cheers,
    Fabrizio

    Hi all!

    Thanks so much for your feedback. I’m happy to announce you can now add attachments to your tasks in Project!

    You can use this new feature by opening your task details in Project. The add attachment button is available at the bottom of that pane.

    Please let us know what you think of this new feature!

  5. 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.

  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.

    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.

  7. Teams Integration

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

    You can now create local custom fields for your tasks!

    Under the “Add Column” button in the grid, you’ll find a new menu option to create a New Field. Click it!

    - Add dates, numbers, text, and flags to help you organize your work
    -Filter tasks by the contents of your fields
    -If you have limited screen real estate, edit the values for fields in the task details pane

  10. Agile boards

    The new agile features added to Project are good for planning. Key aspect of agile is communication in teammembers, so access to the plan/boards for team is very important.
    It can be sufficient just display the boards in project site or in PWA.

    Hi everyone!

    We’ve heard your ask for boards, and we understand that its an important way to work.

    We just launched the new Project, with a redesigned user experience that is simple and intuitive. Teams can quickly add new members and set up tasks, and then easily switch between grids, boards, or timeline (Gantt) charts to track progress.

    Some links to learn more:
