  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Project team members what to be able to see just their tasks like you can in Planner.

    In the board view on project in team, Assignee would like to be able to just see tasks assigned to him/her. Perhaps a tab on the left side of teams like planner that would show all of my tasks regardless of which project they are associated with.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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

    Please add it

  9. doesn't sync need regular refreshing, painful to use

    We started using it to try within our team, but it doesn't sync as other office products. If 2 of us are using, we have to ask for refresh.
    Also it keeps saying every now and then to refresh.

    Can you fix it, or is this still work in progress

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. Add all types of links (Start - Start, Finish - Finish, Start - Finish)

    Users can't create the correct schedule only with Finish - Start link. Please add other three types of links - Start - Start, Finish - Finish, Start - Finish

  15. Project for the web - Copy Project

    I'm at a conference, and customers are interested in Project for the web. However, they are adamant that it have both (a) templates for starting projects, and (b) the ability to copy an existing project to a new one. With those features, they may be interested in trying it.

    Hi everyone!

    You can now access “Copy Project” by going into a project, clicking on the title to open the details pane, hitting the “…” in the top corner, and then the Copy command.

    You can learn more about Copy Project and get Tips & Tricks here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/copying-projects-in-project-for-the-web/ba-p/1477766

    Please let us know what you think and continue to share your feedback with us!

  16. Roadmap needs to allow notes to be associated with a project and/or tasks

    We use Project OnLine, and I use Roadmap to review programs status weekly with my PMs. It will be very useful if I can enter my notes on the entire project swim-lane or a particular task. Otherwise I have to keep switching between Roadmap and my note-taking application (I use Agenda on my Mac).

    Hi all!

    We appreciate the feedback and understanding your scenarios! As we plan/develop this, we would appreciate continuing detail on how you would use this, where you would use this (row level/item level), and how this would benefit you.

    Thanks again to our Uservoice community!

  17. 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.

  18. Ability to add attachments to a taks / subtask / project

    Hi there
    We need the ability to add attachments to a task/subtask and a project in general. Same functionality as in Planner. Ideally we can add attachments from anywhere in SharePoint across multiple teams.
    Cheers,
    Fabrizio

    Hi all!

    Thanks so much for your feedback. I’m happy to announce you can now add attachments to your tasks in Project!

    You can use this new feature by opening your task details in Project. The add attachment button is available at the bottom of that pane.

    Please let us know what you think of this new feature!

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
