  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Power Automate connectors for Project for the Web

    Develop connectors for automating creation of new projects, new tasks, update and assign to team members using Power Automate. Currently the connectors for Project are dependent on a PWA root site.

  4. Destroy the silos

    Right now MS has three products that do the same thing with differing levels of complexity: Planner, Project For The Web, and Project. MS would unleash incredible value if these were integrated, or better yet just combined into one product that has more options turned on as you increase features.

    Project For The Web is a good step forward to making project management software interface so simple that anybody can understand it. Well done! Planner gives very basic users a way to manage tasks. Again, well done! The problem is that their functionality is so silo'd that they don't provide…

  5. Move link to "Go to Project Online" to top of Project Home (instead of bottom)

    Move link to "Go to Project Online" to top of Project Home page (instead of bottom) so users who only use project online know where to go/have easy access and are not confused with New blank project option

  7. 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

  8. 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!

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  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.

  13. Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement Plans must include Project P3, Data integration for Project with Flow, and Common Data Service for Project

    Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement Plans must include Project P3, Data integration for Project with Flow, and Common Data Service for Project, to run new roadmap feature and give a complete experience to Project Online Users.

    Thats important because if I want to use Project Online and Dynamics 365, I should not have to pay again for almost the same features, so that doesn't need to be duplicated if I have those licenses in the D365 plan.

  14. Roadmap datasource from Excel

    Add Excel as a datasource for Add New Row tracking data. Roadmaps are simple in nature and do not always require complex tracking of all project information. When starting to build a roadmap you may only have the high level information in a tool such as Excel. By allowing this simple creation of the roadmap it can evolve over time from a draft roadmap to a full fledged roadamp.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Show item type when adding items from Azure DevOps to a roadmap

    When adding an item from Azure DevOps the user can't see if it is a feature or a user story. Items with similar titles might be wrongly selected. It would be good to get an additional inidcation on the item type in the selection pane.
    Kind regards,
    Trutz Stephani

  18. Project for Web - Project Description

    In the fly out where you rename the project. Have a description field so we can add a brief description of the project.

  19. Add "attach file" to all tasks

    Add the function to attach files to all kinds of tasks. This function exist in Planner and are a basic feature and most to add any kind of document needed associated to a main-/sub task. And also a function here in user voice :-). Thanks

  20. 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.
