  1. Add Lag time to task dependencies

    In order for Pftw to be a serious tool (and a possible LT replacement for the desktop app) there must be an ability to add positive/negative lag to to tasks.

    We should also be able to choose the columns shown on the Timeline view

  2. It would be really good if you can extract Project online to an excel or PDF document

    It would be really good if you can extract Project online to an excel or PDF document so that it can be shared with others who dont have the access to project online

  3. 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. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. timeline zoom

    Zoom function for project timeline does not zoom enough out to get a good overview of a project with long duration. Should be possibel to show the whole project in one view.

  9. Assign Project for Web tasks should appear in Tasks App in Teams

    Teams Tasks app (Soon to be launched) will show a list of all tasks assigned to you in either Planner or To Do. It would be pretty cool if it also showed line items from Projects for the Web.

  10. Project as a tab in Teams: Do not require license for viewing

    When adding a tab in Teams for Project, many stakeholders are interested in viewing the plan, but it is very impractical to have to manage licenses for a potentially large group of people who just want to take a quick look.

    Therefore, it should be default that anybody with an Office365 license should be able to just look at plans. For those who have assigned tasks, the current licensing structure is fine.

  11. 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.

  12. Partial Finish to Start + Start to Start

    Sometimes a task is not dependent on another task finishing, but rather is dependent on another task being near completion (ie. Task 8 is scheduled to start when Task 7 is 1 week away from completion).

    Similarly, it would be beneficial to be able to schedule two tasks to be predicated on each other (ie. Task 8 is scheduled to start at the same time as Task 7 - Neither 7 nor 8 can begin without the other).

  13. print roadmaps

    provide the ability to print a roadmap that is created. This would be great to show to the c-level the roadmaps

  14. Show Roadmap item dependencies

    Be able to show that an item has dependency on another item - either in the same row or a different row

  15. Allow color or icon to be set for buckets

    Allow a color or icon to be set on buckets so that it is easy to recognize the type of task in the Board's Group-by-Progress view.

    The current view does show the name of the bucket which is useful but an icon or color would make recognition easier. This would help our workflow where buckets are used to distinguish between internal tasks or client-assigned tasks like reviews. A color or icon would make these easy to identity if status meetings. Another example is to distinguish training tasks from development tasks in stand-up meetings.

  16. default instance

    To extend project for the web via cds, this is only achievable via leveraging the default CDS instance. The default instance is not designed to be production therefore creating a powerapp for end users leveraging this is not a good idea (as the whole company has environment maker access). We need the ability to create a production instance for CDS for project for the web.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Enable the Recent project list and cards to be configurable + sorting

    Enable the Recent project list and favorites cards to be configurable to show more data. As Project Home works across multiple PWA instances, each with potentially different configuration, allowing up a fixed number of intrinsic fields would be good. Maybe up to 5 additional intrinsic fields. Then enable sorting on the Recent project list using the column headers. Also provide the ability to sort the favorites cards too using the data displayed on the cards.

  20. Team Members should not become owners of the project

    Currently any resource allocation to a task in P4W automatically provides the resource/user with full owner rights to the "Project" entity = allowing them to delete projects and do changes to the "Project" forms.
