  1. Ability to comment tasks / giving feedback

    When working on projects, users like to give feedback right in a task / column. Would be nice having a column in the grid view to see comments on a task

  2. Allow directly adding project team members without Office 365 Group (in Project for the web)

    Allow directly adding project team members without Office 365 Group (in Project for the web). Similar to the "modern workplace" in Power BI, please allow adding multiple individual users or Office 365 Groups to a project as members.

  4. Possibility to hide completed tasks

    In a complex Project with many tasks, subtasks and lots of different owners, we need the option to adapt the overview of tasks - e.g. by:
    - user / assigned to me
    - hide completed tasks (like in planner)

  5. Add Colouring

    Hi,
    the roadmap is a perfect tool, however it would be really helpful to get a colour function in it. In order you can give the several projects/tasks in the roadmap a colour. This way it makes it possible to have a good visualization and to see quickly the different projects/programs that are part of the portfolio / Roadmap.

  6. Surface Additional Project Meta-Data for Favorite Projects

    It would be valuable to allow the system to surface additional information directly on the home page for the user's favorite projects. For example, image the favorite tile as a baseball card. Clicking on the project would allow the card to flip and show statistics. (Last Published, Top Risk, Top Issue, % Complete, Actual Hours Worked Etc. This allows the PM to see management level detail directly on the home page. Using these KPIs - the user could then navigate directly to the specific page. For example, if the Top Risk was of concern - the PM could click on…

  7. More excel like funtionality

    Hi,

    to improve the usability it would be good to be able to:


    • Paste activity lists from excel.

    • Copy by dragging like in project online

    • Import plans from project online

  8. Time-tracking app integration with MS Project

    Wouldn't it be great if all our various team members could track-time via a mobile app that then integrated with MS Project to show actual time worked on tasks!

    We'd learn really fast lessons about our estimating accuracy that would help us improve double-quick.

  9. Conditional formatting for tasks

    In a previous version of Project a completed task in the task list used to show as greyed out. I liked this because visually my eye was drawn to incomplete tasks while still being able to see what had been completed.

    Conditional formatting like what's available in Excel would be perfect. Id be able to create a conditonal format that says if the task is 100% complete, show with a green background, if it is between 0 and 100 (i.e. in progress) show with a yellow background, and if the task is 0% complete show with a red background.

  10. Show all items from a project when adding to Roadmap

    When we try to add items from a project, it is cumbersome to ‘search’ for something specific.

    It would be nice to have the list show up with multiselect- checkboxes, so that multiple items can be added easily.

    It would be awesome to have the 'Outline' feature from the schedule available so that the lists can be expanded or collapsed.

    And finally, ability to connect to a specific view from schedule webpart will allow admins to build several views that might just be milestones/summary tasks etc.,

  11. Roadmap to lock or save zoom filter

    The Roadmap zoom filter always returns to weekly views. The zoom should maintain or lock the last zoom settings. Each time I return to Dashboard, I must reset my zoom to see a full year.

  12. An overview of all your tasks from different projects you're working on 'My tasks'

    It would be great if there could be an overview where you can see all your tasks for all of the projects you are working on. This is already possible in for example Planner and Project Online.
    When this is released it won't be needed to open every project separately to see what your tasks for the day are. Would be a huge benefit for us!

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Post how Educational (EES) Tenants can access Project for the Web

    Currently "Project Plan [1,3,5] for Faculty" does not give access to Project for the web. I have enabled the "Project Plan 1" license trial (the non-educational version of the license) to gain temporary access but it is unclear what the best way for EES clients is to puchase the "non-faculty" versions of the licenses to gain continued access. Nothing yet is published that I can find telling Educational customers how or when access will be available to them. I know Teams access came a few months later than the general rollout so I am guessing this may be similar, but…

  16. Mobile App for Android/iOS

    More and more users are working on the go with their mobile. A mobile app for Android/iOS would be a big big plus. Especially for executives!

  17. Multiple non consecutive dates in a single task

    In some situations there is the need to have the same task over and over just because it repeats several times in the course of non consecutive dates.

    It would be nice to have only one tasks and define all these different dates in this same task.

  18. Can you add Baseline information in Roadmap?

    I would like to track status of major milestones on multiple schedules on my Road map page. Without the ability to view baseline dates for these milestones, I cant tell if the milestone has slipped. For example, say I have 200 project schedules in my (PWA) enterprise. I would like to see the completion task date for each project (represented by a row in road map). That way if the PM updates their respective project, and their completion date pushes by one week, Road map would act as my enterprise level dashboard that would flag this projects date push if…

  19. Indicate if a task/milestone is added to Roadmap within PWA

    "Add to Roadmap" command in PWA is a cool way to add tasks and milestones to row items in Roadmap. Yet, when the user tries to add the task/milestone that is already part of the row item in a Roadmap, PWA should warn or prevent me from not doing so.

  20. Roadmap: When searching items to add, show additional details in the search results

    Show additional data in the search results for items you want to add. Today all you get is the task names that match. This isn't useful if you have lots of tasks with the same names. Include the task start and / or finish dates in the search results so you can see work out which task you want to add without guessing. You can only tell you guessed correctly / incorrectly when you select the task from the results then see details in the selected tasks table.
