  1. Lock Milestones

    Would be very helpful to be able to lock start or stop dates so that the rest of the schedule can't push something that isn't flexible.

  2. Match notification settings to match Project Web App

    Update notification settings to match all the options and settings which are available in Project Web App. It is the biggest miss which will prevent us from moving over to Project for the Web.

  3. Opening files created in Project Plan 1 in Project Plan 3

    We have just upgraded to Project Plan 3 from Plan 1 and have discovered that we cannot open our existing projects in the desktop app. This is extremely frustrating and will mean we have to start from scratch.

  4. Enable Fixed Effort scheduling mode

    Add the ability to plan a project based on fixed effort instead of duration. This is important to manage projects with effort budgets that cannot be exceeded

  6. Ability to copy and paste added tasks, from one project to another

    We have about 10-12 active IDENTICAL projects going at one time, with additional projects set up and prepped. When something changes in the industry, or in our workflow, we need to alter the project files to reflect that. It would be extremely helpful to enter any additional tasks into one project, and then copy and paste/insert them into the other project, rather than entering the new group of tasks 20 times... We use Project Online.

  8. Microsoft 'To Do' Connection

    Please set up integration between Project tasks and To Do in the same way that planner has, so tasks can be added to 'my day' and closed out through your To Do dashboard.

  9. Timeline Scrolling by Mouse Click and Drag

    Allow to scroll through the timeline by clicking and dragging your mouse in the gantt view. This would mimic touch screen / tablets.

  10. Export grid view into pdf

    I would love to be able to export my grid view into a pdf, instead of just the timeline view. The clients prefer the grid view and it doesn't look as nice exported into Excel. Thanks!

  12. Export to Microsoft Project file format

    Can we get a way to export the web Project to Microsoft Project File (similarly this can be done in word, excel, and powerpoint.) Why is this feature also not in Project?

  13. Export Project for the web to Project Online

    Ability to export projects from Project for web and import to Project Online.

    OR

    Export projects from project.microsoft.com to .mpp file so it can be used in Desktop Client to then publish to Project Online.

  14. Connect Project Web Tasks with Planner and/or To Do

    To have all my tasks in one view it would be great to have an option (or in general) to sync the tasks of a project, which are assigned to me, to Microsoft To Do or to a (chosen or new) Planner board.

  15. Add constraints like Project Client (Start no earlier than, as late as possible, etc) to project tasks

    The Project desktop client allows for more powerful scheduling, please add this to Project for the Web. We want to be able to setup our project plans to include additional constraints as listed here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/set-a-task-start-or-finish-date-constraint-for-a-task-3a7544fa-e992-4647-911b-54cdbe508784

  16. Mind Map View

    Mind maps are a great way to view build and view your project. I use another program that have both schedule, gant and mind map view. Its very useful to be able to present and work on projects in different formats depending on who your working with and who your presenting to.

  17. Ability to color code to the to projects or add tags / labels.

    In my use case, we are using the time line few to easily see projects and dependencies over time. If I could group them by colors or tags, that would be really helpful in my measuring of progress. The label function already exists on Planner.

  18. Alternative resource management process and/or additional Resource types

    In public sector, project financial model include the use of resource types as Personnel, Equipment/Goods, Services, Operations and Admin costs. The current three resources types are limited.
    Furthermore, in some instances when an activity is completed it does not usually mean that the linked resources have been applied.

    If there are options to address these gaps, MS projects will be useful for development and public sector types of projects. This issue can be resolved by developing project types per industries which can be selected by project managers.

  19. Add search box for groups

    The groups list, don't load all off the groups, and there is no search box for group, that is a limitation in the creation of new project, if i can't select the group.

  20. Finish Variance Calculation Settings (not connected to Deadline Date)

    Understanding that when you assign a deadline to a task that if the scheduled finish is later than the deadline, MSP calculates the total slack for that task and its predecessors as the difference between the scheduled finish and the deadline. Is there a way to keep this from occurring OR any 'Finish Variance'-esq type field to keep the total slack calculation based on the scheduled 'Finish Date' and not adjusting to the Deadline' date if the scheduled finish is later than the deadline?
