I'd like the ability to export or print a roadmap to PDF to make it easier to share for status reporting with non-Project users.192 votes
Hi everyone! Thanks for the feedback again.
I’ve broken this down into two general scenario requests and have some more questions.
Scenario 1) I want to share my Roadmap with a stakeholder but I don’t want them to have editing capabilities, or they might not even have a Project license. Follow ups – is this RO stakeholder a part of the team/group in the Roadmap?
Scenario 2) I want to export or print to share or present the Roadmap with (possibly outside) stakeholders (whether this is in PPT presentation or a physical printout). Follow ups – why not screenshot the view and put it in PPT or then print?
Thanks for your inputs!! We’re listening and thinking hard about your scenarios.
Have full in depth integration between microsoft planned and Project to ensure the reach is greater and not limitted to the Project environment, Ideally it should also link to PWA and the full Microsoft Projects.165 votes
Hi everyone – thanks for the feedback so far. In regards to Planner & Project for the web, we are definitely listening to these scenarios and thinking about how to improve them!
Would helping import from Planner to Project be helpful in this case, and enabling teams to work in Project?
I read a lot of comments on making sure we can leverage full Planner capabilities in Project, team members being able to see and complete their task, and not wanting to “re-write” and “move” tasks over. Are these the most important scenarios for us when thinking about this area?
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.114 votes
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!
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.98 votes
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?
It would be useful to enable editing project schedule in Project for web via Project Desktop app.75 votes
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.
Love the current vision for roadmaps as it was presented at Ignite 2018. It would be great to see more integration. Efforts as soon as the tool matures and people start working with it.
For instance, besides Azure Boards, Planner and project online/new project service. It would be great to get a connection with Jira.
In The Netherlands this tool is almost always available in IT departments for clients I visit. And there is a real need to get a overview on all Project and agile efforts across the organization.

We would love to learn more about this suggestion. What types of Jira projects are you expecting to connect? What type of Jira issues would you want to bring in? What interactions would you expect with the Jira connection in Roadmap?
Any comments and suggestions here would be helpful for us to better understand this scenario.
Project Roadmap allows portfolio managers to bring in key tasks from Azure Boards and Projects in PWA.
Planner is used for small, ongoing projects. Please include support to add tasks from Planner to Roadmap as this gives Portfolio managers a better view of all key information in a single screen63 votes
We’d love to hear more about using Planner in Roadmap. Would you connect multiple Plans together in one Roadmap? As a portfolio manager, would you bring in both Planner tasks and Project tasks in one Roadmap? What type of Planner tasks would you bring into this view? What else would you expect?
Please share any details and feedback around this – we love hearing your thoughts!
This may have been covered somewhere else, but it would be nice to interact with a Project task with threaded comments, a way to link to a SharePoint online document rather than attaching a document, @mentions in task comments, #hashtags for tagging projects with attributes, tying into the Outlook calendar for resourcing (i.e. if someone's calendar is marked Out of Office that the resource calendar picks that up (maybe this is already the case), ability to set reminders on tasks based on certain criteria, conditional formatting. I don't mean to mention other products here, but a mashup between how Smarsheet and Wrike works would be ideal. We've hesitated with using Project because it's been so cumbersome, but maybe with some of these new features being rolled out we can get back to Project and Azure Boards with the Roadmap features to roll things up. We just need Project to be more collaborative with how we interact with tasks.

This is wonderful feedback, and a direction we are planning/headed in. We’d love more details from you and others to see what type of interactive capabilities are most crucial to see to be more successful with Project.
Thanks for sharing, feel free to ad more comments as they come up.
Would love this more if I could export the data to a csv or to desktop Microsoft Project.46 votes
Can you tell us why you’d need to export the data? I’d love to better understand the scenarios on when you would export to csv, or desktop? Why are you doing this and how does it help you be more successful?
Roadmap needs ability to add rows for proposed projects. Currently way to do this, requires me to create a dummy project and published.43 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. We’d love to understand more around this scenario.
Would you be adding tasks and milestones? Do you ever expect to connect this row to a project, or create a project? What happens after the proposal state to the row? Why else would you be creating blank rows and tasks? Would you have a roadmap with both types of rows?…
The comments below are very helpful already, so please keep them coming! We want to better understand why customers need this scenario fulfilled.
The tiles under Create New Project are for all EPTs and methods - including ones our organization cannot support & that cause data to be created and stored outside of our enterprise resource environment.
Please allow configuration of the tiles that appear under Create New, or at the least allow EPTs to be deactivated in PWA.15 votes
Thanks for the suggestion. It looks like you are using a custom pwa site and the create new project button is redirecting users to the default pwa site which has some epts present.
If that is the case, we are providing support for non-default sites and with that this problem should go away.
Do let us know more on this?
Under the Board view add "Assigned to" under Group by - just like in Planner which uses the same board framework.11 votes
For “Group By Assigned To”, how would you expect the work to be split up for tasks that have multiple assignments?
1. The task shows up under every single person its assigned to. When one person finishes the task, the whole task gets complete. This mimics Planner.
2. The task shows up under every single person its assigned to. When one person finishes the task, a certain percentage of the task gets complete (if there are two assignees, then it would be 50% complete).
Thanks for this feedback!
