  1. Project for the Web Custom Fields Available for Reporting Using PowerBI

    Project for the Web Custom Fields and PowerBI: As I develop the enterprise portfolio of projects for my institution, it is important that I allow project managers to use their tool of choice (i.e. MS Project within a Project Online environment for the more experienced PM and Project for the Web for the less experienced PM). There are some strategic projects that do not require the power of MS Project. However, they should be included in the portfolio for reporting purposes. Ultimately, the portfolio would be dynamic if we were using PowerBI and a flag would be used to determine…

  2. Allow Roadmaps to be embedded in other webpages

    Currently I cannot embed a Roadmap into another webpage. An example use case is where I want to embed a URL to a roadmap into SharePoint or another CMS in order to enable collaboration across my organisation, using iframes. At the moment this cannot be done because the x-frame-options within roadmap are set to Deny. Please resolve this. The full error is as follows. Refused to display ‘https://project.microsoft.com/en-GB/#/roadmap?portfolioId=29e88c85-3294-ea11-a811-000d3aba6d9b’ in a frame because it set ‘X-Frame-Options’ to ‘deny’.

  4. 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.

  5. Link between PWA/Planner/Email/Microsoft Team/Power BI

    A few feedback for the new project feature of the online web version.
    1. Function 1

    Link the tasks with Planner. So that should be able to be seen in Planner. 
    

    1. Function 2
      Link the tasks with PWA, so tasks can be synchronized

    2. Function 3
      Tasks should have the communication channel which should be inside Microsoft Team.

    3. Function 4
      Attachment should be added and should be seen in Grid

    4. Category for the tasks as "new function" "risk" "issue"

    5. Dashboard for tasks.
      Budget and Cost
      Late tasks
      Risks and issues

    Hopefully these improvement can be considered. Honestly, Microsoft project is far…

  6. 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.

  7. Check Out/Publish vs Live Project Updates in New Project

    This is less of a suggestion but more of a clarification request. With this new Project product, the planning methodology seems to have fundamentally shifted from a 'check out file, make/test schedule changes, and publish' to a more 'live planning' approach where any changes are pushed instantly. There are still some businesses that do not plan in this way and are more sensitive to changes in dates, especially when automation (e.g. email/push notifications) are applied to the schedule. How does Microsoft plan to accommodate for organizations who may not want all of their planning to be published in real-time?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  15. Roadmap: Integrate iteration start and finish dates into user story items pulled from Azure DevOps

    Currently the roadmap flow only pulls in the start date and the target date from Azure DevOps items as start and finish dates for roadmap items. For user story items the target date cannot be set in out-of-the-box mode. The best would be if the dates for user stories could be pulled from the Azure DevOps iterations as user stories are prioritized in the backlog and then assigned to a sprint iteration which in turn has a defined timeslot.

  16. Improve Training Videos on Project for the Web and Project Online

    One of the biggest problems is lack of training video's on Project for the Web and implementation/integration of Project where I have some users that are very small projects and need Project for the Web for simplicity and some users that have large ongoing projects that need Project Professional for its extended capabilities. There needs to be clear definition on how to use these as a single platform and what reports are available without the use of Power BI (too expensive for small companies).

    In addition, there is very little available in training video's for the overall implementation and use…

  19. Show milestone titles on the roadmap

    It would be great to see the titles of the milestones at the high-level at-a-glance view. When you look at a roadmap with a bunch of dots but have no idea what those milestones are without hovering over each milestone, it defeats the purpose of the roadmap, which is intended to show at a high level, without double clicks, what's coming on the roadmap.

  20. Allow Status Managers to see the breakdown of billable and non-billable time in the Approvals Center

    Once a team member has submitted task updates for approval, the project manager or Status Manager can preview those updates and accept or reject them.

    Currently the Status Manager's are unable to see the split between the non-billable and billable time on the time approvals section and adding this into the view would be really useful.
