It would be great to have a Button to Import mpp file into MS project Web.
We usually use MS Project client (mpp file) to plan and monitor the project, and we can't even copy and paste MS fields to MS project web or upload the file directly. We have to replicate everything we have on the MS project Client by hand to MS project Web! That doesn't make sense at all!483 votes
Thank you for your feedback. For now, you can use an API through Powershell to import .mpp files in Project for the web. You can learn more here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/import-project-desktop-files-to-project-for-the-web-api/ba-p/2031298
We are also looking into other ways to support import. Stay tuned for future updates.
When creating a new project we don't want to start from scratch each time. We should be able to select a type of project (or an existing one) and use that as a starting point.401 votes
I’m updating this to “partially complete” as we have finished rolling out the “Copy Project” feature. You can access this by opening a project, clicking on the title to open the details pane, hitting the “…” in the top corner, and then the Copy command.

We’re still thinking about the specific templates scenario and reading your comments below. Please try the feature out and let us know what other feedback/improvements can be made.
In the new Project for Web, allow users to customize email notifications about tasks which are assigned to them, have been updated, etc. Does not seem to be an option to do so, and it's critical for my team to be notified about their tasks.154 votes
All users should now receive email notifications when they are assigned to a new task in Project for the web.
Please let us know what you think of this feature & what other notifications would be helpful for you!
Develop connectors for automating creation of new projects, new tasks, update and assign to team members using Power Automate. Currently the connectors for Project are dependent on a PWA root site.73 votes
Hi there! You can use the “CDS Connector” in Power Automate to access the Project for the Web entities. They are only read-access right now.
You can look at examples here: https://github.com/OfficeDev/Project-Dynamics-Issues
Hope this helps!
In the new Project add the ability to filter by task, by resource or by date71 votes
You might have noticed that you can filter by string on the Grid view. You can now filter on task names and assignees (check the top right corner of your projects!)
I’m marking this as partially complete, as I know there were many other asks here. Please continue sharing your needs and scenarios around filtering.
