  1. A description or status column would be great for notes on the task progress

    Taking notes on task activity is pretty common and helpful, can't seem to find this feature and limits project online to a simple task scheduling app

  2. Allow new fields created in Power Apps to be added to the project.microsoft.com site views

    At the moment (unless im missing something) when you create Custom fields in Project, Project Task and Resource entities they are not usable in the project.microsoft.com user interface. This interface is great for end users but the inability to add custom fields is rendering it useless ATM.

  3. When adding a project to a roadmap and the project summary task is enabled, the system should auto-populate the start/end date.

    Rather than manually adding all the phases. I would like the ability to set up a quick roadmap by searching for the project in Project Online, then have the system pick up the start/end dates from the project summary task initially. Then provide the option to add Phases & Key dates if needed.

  4. Should search by Project Name first and Owner field should auto-populate when adding projects to a roadmap.

    Owner field is already populated in Project Online. The workflow should be to search for the project first, then auto-populate the Owner field with the Project Detail Owner information from Project Online.

  5. Need ability to specify whether an Item being added is a Phase or a Task.

    The system seems to be randomly choosing whether an Item being added is a Phase or Task. I need the ability to change from a Task to Phase. When adding items, I should be able to click on 'Task' or 'Phase' and change it from one to the other.

  6. Add ability to request access to a project from the a Roadmap

    User ability to request access to a project listed in the Roadmap in which a user does not have access. Functionality would be similar to that in SharePoint (requesting access to a site).

  8. Completion status based on start and end date

    In some cases like a pilot phase of a project the the completion status is not actually based on work but the scheduled duration time.

    As for such "Tasks" it would be nice having an option to depend the completion status on the start and finish date an not a manually entered value.

  9. Files and SPO site

    It should be possible to open files and mapped spo site in same simple way like in Teams.
    At the moment little bit complicated/user unfriendly with a lot of clicks using OWA.

  11. Make Roadmap actually work!

    Roadmap, at least on Edge, barely works. It is incredibly slow. It does not update properly. It hangs constantly when trying to add new tasks. Great idea but it seems to not function very well.

  12. A New Tool for Linking Construction Planning with Microsoft Project

    I developed a tool and tutorials for linking data from Autodesk Revit to Microsoft Project.
    This can attract the attention of construction managers, and they can transfer data from Autodesk Revit planning to Microsoft Project. This tool helps you move from 3D planning to 4D and 5D planning with Microsoft Project.

  17. Start column auto add with Finish in Project for the Web

    When adding a new column in Project for the Web, alphabetically "Finish" is first. It would be nice if after choosing Finish, there is a notification to suggest auto adding Start. A common task I perform is add Finish, add Start and then rearrange the columns to put Start first. The same suggestion could apply if you add "Start" first, have it suggest auto adding Finish.

  18. Make PowerApps a standard delegated admin role in M365

    To be able to edit Project for the web, one needs to be PowerApp admin. This, however is not a standard delegated admin role (as Power Bi admin is for example). At this moment, you can only edit Project for the web with a Global Admin role. However, the Global admin role is way to wide for just this purpose. Please add the PowerApp admin role to the standard delegated admin roles.

  19. roadmaps - allow as a portfolio manager to combine roadmaps.

    currently today you cannot combine roadmaps created using the new roadmap function to an overall enterprise roadmap. It would be nice as the PMO manager to be able to pull all into one to get an overall view. We are having all product lines create a three year roadmap in ms project and publish to pwa - so it would be a great feature to add
