  2. Notifications

    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.

  3. Tasks have the ability to align with the SF, FS, SS, FF of another task

    Many Project Managers use the SF, FS, SS, FF as described by this Wiki

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependency(projectmanagement)

    Would be very helpful as Finish to Start does not address concurrent, or deadline depedant tasks.

  5. Sharing is scary

    There is no indication if someone else is changing my project or has changed it. Hard to track, seems basic for management tools

  6. Allow better Extensibility in the CDS

    Allow programatic editing of the entities for Project for the web. Such as editing all Project/Task fields, creating new Tasks, Assigning Resources to tasks, etc.

    This will enable users and Partners to extend the Project For the Web platform and integrate with other applications.

  7. Make Project on the Web available in new Environments

    Power Platform supports multiple environments (Automate and Apps). It should be possible to have a separate Project environment also. The default environment is not enough for global organizations and multiple, different entities. Make it possible to create Project environments just like Automate (Microsoft Flow) and Power Apps.

  8. 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:

  9. Tasks with cost resource MUST be calculated in BCWS column in Project Desktop.

    BCWS column calculate values from tasks that has work and material resources, but ignore cost resources in the calculation. This is wrong and make a distortion in Earned Value results (BCWP column).

    Please, solve this error making BCWS column calculate cost resources in the tasks as well.

  10. Reporting or managing project portfolios is hard

    In project for web, one hand things are made easier as compared to project online, on other essential asks like reporting and managing portfolios is not handled in same respect.
    we have to essentially found power platform experienced folks to get in to achieve this.

    Is this something which Microsoft is trying to also ease out?

  11. Planner in Roadmap

    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 screen

    Hi all!

    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!

    ~J

  12. Dark Mode within Microsoft Teams

    If I add a Planner Tab, it shows up in Dark Mode. If I add a Project Tab, the contents have a white background. I would like to see Project integrated into the Dark Mode settings of Teams. Thanks!

  13. Project for the web: Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes

    Currently the Task entity in CDS is locked. Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes. Also adding additional fields to type the activities in the schedule, would be helpful.

  14. Collaboration experience on teams

    We started trying project app in teams. The experience doesn't seem to be ready for active collaboration. Few examples are like other users are not known, you cant chat in project context, if others are not online then its confusing.
    Please fix this to complete project app in teams with collaboration.

  15. Project for the web - Threaded Comments

    Perhaps this has already been suggested, but the way Planner allows to review the comments added to a task much like a SharePoint discussion is a great feature and it would be a great improvement to the new Project for the web.

  16. Task assignment notifications in teams

    As in Planner it would be very useful if an assignee gets a notification right within Microsoft Teams when a task has been assigned. And also important, the ability to get notifications in Teams only and optional also as an e-mail.

  17. Ability to publish Roadmap to Sharepoint site

    It would be highly useful for a web part which links to Roadmap, allowing for the ability to publish a Read-Only version of the Roadmap to a Sharepoint site. This would specifically be useful for giving the high level management or executive team view to how projects are tracking.

  18. Teams integration incomplete

    Teams integration seems incomplete without having guest access, notification and support in private channels. I see the old request has been marked completed and closed, can you share plan for these also, or atleast mark original as partially completed

  20. Add Jira integration

    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.

    Regards,
    Erik van Hurck

    Hi all!

    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.

    Thanks!
    ~J
