  1. 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.

  2. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  9. 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).

  10. Show project priority on roadmap

    The roadmap does a good job of showing milestones across multiple projects but it does not allow you to see if each project is a high, medium, or low priority. This would be very beneficial.

  11. Ability to have multiple calendars

    For example, allow us to have separate calendars for weekdays-only, 7-day, expected rainy days. Then, we could apply a specific calendar to each task and its duration would apply the correct finish dates based on the start date & calendar selected.

  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. Create a 'Home' button in the Roadmap page

    When navigating on an existing roadmap, the only way to go back to the Project Home page is to either use the app launcher or to type the 'project.microsoft.com' in the browser. It would be nice if we had a 'Home' button in the roadmap page so we could easily get back to the starting point page to see other roadmaps and projects.

  15. 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

  16. Collapse tasks at the summary level

    I like PfW a lot but I run projects that have a lot of phases and then sub-tasks. I would like to be able to open my project with the Summary Tasks (or phases) collapsed - this is the main reason I have stopped using Project for the Web. Every time I re-open it all my Summary Tasks are expanded so I have to start by collapsing all the ones that are complete just to get a focused few of a particular section.

    I couldn't find this as an existing request, if it is already somewhere else please let me…

  17. P4W: sort/filter in grid view

    At the moment, you can only show or hide columns in the grid view. It would be great if there was the possibility to filter and sort across all columns in the grid view, so you can for example display only the tasks that are assigned to a specific person or have to be completed on a specific date.

  18. Team Planner grid as in desktop client

    Hi, It is not actually new idea, however Desktop client has very cool grid control called "Team Planner". It is important tool to control resource loads and gives more precise vision for the completion dates.

  19. 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.

  20. Delete a Project For The Web project from project home

    Deleting a project in Project For The Web is anything but logical: Click on the project, click on the project name (not exactly an obvious thing to do...and still no delete button in sight), then click on the ellipses (...) (still not a logical place to find it) and NOW it shows up.

    I propose putting the delete feature on the home page.
