  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. 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. 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:

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  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…

  9. 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.

  10. Where are the online video tutorials for Project? It's 2019, it's all about video!

    I don't want to download your stupid PDF to figure out how to use your product. I want a video that shows me quickly how to setup my project. This is like basic 101 product training, why don't you guys have it?

  14. 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.
