  1. Add batch editing of cells like Excel (paste)

    I had a long list of tasks in Excel, and couldn't paste into Project for the Web or couldn't copy and paste all assignees and dates. Massive productivity loss.

  2. Image to identify Project, Task and Roadmap than just a text-only name

    For design/marketing projects and tasks, the users who need to keep track of their work are design artists and genuinely "visual". It is essential and very crucial to enable them to identify their work with images throughout the entire project management.

    So the request is:
    A Project, a Task, a Roadmap, each of them with its own image thumbnail (with a full size image uploaded and shown when clicked on, of course).

    This naturally shortens the time and makes things much easier for key users to look at the whole map, status, and results than by a "text only" name.…

  3. Allow currency fields in Project for the Web

    So we can add our own fields to the P4W entities and edit this data in the associated record in the Model app (but of course not yet have these values surface in the actual Project for the Web app).

    However, if you add a currency field to say the Project entity, and try to update it, you get the 'You cannot directly do 'Update' operation to 'msdyn_project' error.

    This error does not appear when you try to edit a value in any other field type that I have added - to me this seems like a bug.

  6. Add Resource Rate Card (chargeout rate + internal cost rate)

    With the resource planning improvements, for Professional Services firms it would be great to be able to assign a charge out rate (per day and per hour) for every resource and for generic resources, and also assign an internal cost for each resource, including generic resources, both hourly and day rate. This would enhance financials and profitability analysis.... and the value of Project for the Web!

  7. Flag Notes

    The Notes feature is useful, and I've been using it to post reminders for the individuals assigned to a Task within that Task. However, unless that person uses the info button, the notes are missed. It would be nice if Tasks that had Notes were flagged in some way; be it via text color or an icon.

  8. Undo complete subtasks

    If an user accidentally completes a task with subtasks, they are all marked completed, and there is no way to undo this. The user doesnt know the previous state. Please introduce a undo button like when deleting a task its possible to undo this.

  9. Unable to Create and apply work calendars in Project for the web.

    Unable to Create and apply work calendars in Project for the web.

    articles on how to Create and apply work calendars in Project for the web.
    Article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/project-for-the-web/create-and-apply-a-work-calendar

    Microsoft tech told me functionality is not working for now and support teams are aware of it and continuously working on to get this working.

  11. Include a column for cost field in project for the web

    In PRoject for the web there is no column to add cost to a task or project, I think this is necessary to be able to have an idea of the cost of the project.

  12. Open two Project Pro apps at same time. Just like excel!

    Often I want to look at two projects at the same time on different windows.
    Please add this feature. Most other MS apps do it.
    Please show some of this love to Project. :-)

  13. Give product a nickname to improve internet searchability

    I really love this product. But trying to find any technical or even basic user information is extremely difficult because if you do an internet search for Project for Web you get back tons of information on unrelated project software or Project Online. So it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

    A nickname would solve this. Project4Web or something like that would bring us to the right technical resources and improve adoption of the product. Thank you.

  15. Improve Roadmap Formatting Options

    Add roadmap formatting options similar to traditional Project Timeline (e.g., ability to create callout boxes for task names that don't fit within a bar, ability to change text size/font/style)

  16. Project Online cannot allow deactivate resources

    I cannot deactivate the resources on the "Resource Center" page, the message "Please type the name of the resource" appears, but this field is not editable (I think it is because it is a resource synchronized from AD).

  17. Display Project Manager in Roadmap View

    It would be very helpful to see the assigned project manager in the roadmap view. This field already exists in the project, so it would just need to be added as a display column.

  18. Ability to freeze the first bucket in the board view

    When assigning tasks to the different buckets (in my case each bucket is a sprint), I have to scroll to buckets that are not visible on the screen so I loose the tasks listed in the To Do bucket.
