  1. 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

  2. Directly import the project timeline into Roadmap

    PM's already create a timeline in their schedule with the most important schedule items. It would be very useful and saving a lot of time to import a timeline in stead of all task separately.

  3. Viewing multiple projects and roadmaps in one overview/page/tab including adding dependencies between them.

    Have the ability to view multiple projects and roadmaps in one overview including adding dependencies between them
    For our organisation we use multiple projects and roadmaps for different projects but they DO have dependencies between them. It would be perfect to be able to view them all in one overview/screen and see the dependencies between them instead of having to remind them/flag them all the time. This would make the life of our product owner so much better.

    If this could be shared through Teams as well that would make it even better.

    Thanks in advance for looking into this.

  4. Ability to view Notes column in Grid View

    Ability to view Notes column in Grid View, so you can get a quick view of where the task is sitting or is blocked

  5. 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)

  6. 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…

  7. Project Home - Create New -EPT control

    The tiles under Create New Project are for all EPTs and methods - including ones our organization cannot support & that cause data to be created and stored outside of our enterprise resource environment.

    Please allow configuration of the tiles that appear under Create New, or at the least allow EPTs to be deactivated in PWA.

    Thanks for the suggestion. It looks like you are using a custom pwa site and the create new project button is redirecting users to the default pwa site which has some epts present.

    If that is the case, we are providing support for non-default sites and with that this problem should go away.

    Do let us know more on this?

  8. Read only permission for new projects

    Not everyone should be able to create a new project. In our scenario every project manager should have read permission but "normal" project members should be on "read-only" instead.

  9. Finish to Start

    In Project Online, I use finish to start +- x number of days and do not see this on Project for the Web. That's a major hindrance to using this version. I'd love to see this added as i usually use automatic tasks and assign FS dependencies on them.

  10. Date format of project ie set dd/mm/yyy

    Allow projects to be set in the relevant date format. It seems as if only US date format is available. That means in Australia dates are misinterpreted 12 days every month. It’s the same issue as planner. Date format needs to be considered for every MVP.

  11. 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

  12. Roadmap: Keep associated Flow names in sync with roadmap name changes

    If you set up a roadmap and link to a Project / Board without the Roadmap name being updated from "Untitled Roadmap", the Flow name is "Untitled roadmap - {row name} - {GUID}". When you then set a Roadmap name or even later change the name, you can't tell which Flows are associated to which Roadmaps. Can the Flow names be kept in sync with the Roadmap names? Maybe even prefix all Flow names with "Roadmap: {Roadmap Name} - {row name} - {GUID}" so that all the Roadmap Flows are clearly identifiable?

  13. Allow more than 500 Tasks in a Project

    Project is not allowing a project to include more than 500 project tasks. There does not seem to be published documentation of a limit to the number of tasks.

  14. Project for the Web (P4W) should just be an upgrade to Planner

    Not sure why the Project team needed another app, they already have Project for Desktop, Project Pro, Project Online, Project Web App, and now Project for the Web. This should just be Planner - in fact it isn't much different than Planner, just has Grid and Timeline view which would be awesome for Planner in general! Just upgrade Planner and add the ability to sync Planner with Project for task sections. Anyone not in the Office 365 Group doing the work can have access to the Roadmap/Project plan, and then the Planner updates needed tasks in Project.

    Project for the…

  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. 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.

  18. Option to import 'All Tasks' from existing PWA plans to Roadmaps

    I work on several large PWA project plans and it is frustratingly slow individually adding each task into road maps by the type & search function when you are adding adding a new row item.

  19. Mobile App for Android/iOS

  20. 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.
