  1. Project "Home" better compatibility with multiple PWA sites

    The new Project Home concept looks a good start (from Brian Smith's recent post) but there are a few things that could do with some refinement for those customers with multiple Project Web App sites as some of our customers do.

    The list of recent projects could with some metadata to describe the container site of the project (maybe the EPT would suffice here but no reason why this couldn't be the site description)

    the New Project directing to the /PWA site is gong to be awkward when /PWA is used simply as a landing page (which has been our…

      HI all -

      Thanks for the feedback, we’re working making Project Home work better with multiple PWA sites and the sites you care most about. We’ll keep you updated here.

      Please keep sharing feedback, as we’re listening and making sure we’re giving you an awesome experience!

    • Allow organisations to customise the Project Home landing page to include company information

      Many organisations already have a sort of landing page or home page for Project Online, where the default site collection (typically PWA) acts as a storefront for going to different PWAs for different departments for example. This landing page typically includes links to training materials, process guides and support contacts, as well as tiles/promoted links for other PWAs.

      The new Project Home landing page should be customisable, to allow organisations to add standard content for the end user. This helps user adoption, especially for non-project managers who may typically head straight for a specific Project Center that they have saved…

      • 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.

        • Project Home - Create New -EPT control

          The tiles under Create New Project are for all EPTs and methods - including ones our organization cannot support & that cause data to be created and stored outside of our enterprise resource environment.

          Please allow configuration of the tiles that appear under Create New, or at the least allow EPTs to be deactivated in PWA.

            Thanks for the suggestion. It looks like you are using a custom pwa site and the create new project button is redirecting users to the default pwa site which has some epts present.

            If that is the case, we are providing support for non-default sites and with that this problem should go away.

            Do let us know more on this?

          • Access to Project from standard Office365

            I'm a home user of Office365 but regularly do work related stuff at home. I want to access Project Professional Online through my home account but can't because it only accepts student or enterprise versions. I think this is poor form. I'm willing to pay for the online access, so why can't I?

            • Add Jira integration

              Love the current vision for roadmaps as it was presented at Ignite 2018. It would be great to see more integration. Efforts as soon as the tool matures and people start working with it.

              For instance, besides Azure Boards, Planner and project online/new project service. It would be great to get a connection with Jira.

              In The Netherlands this tool is almost always available in IT departments for clients I visit. And there is a real need to get a overview on all Project and agile efforts across the organization.

              Regards,
              Erik van Hurck

                • Project Roadmap & Top-Down approaches

                  Roadmap feature will be definitively amazing when it will allow Top-Down approaches. This would make Project ready for programme management as currently defined in almost all industries.

                  A general requirement is to get a "Programme" level (object) where could be attached metadata, resources requirements, budget information. To be able to define this information at a top level and then to compare it to consolidated data comng from projects (Bottom level) is a recurrent need.

                  As an example, it would be great to have the capacity to compare programmes budgets with operational projects costs.

                  • Surface Additional Project Meta-Data for Favorite Projects

                    It would be valuable to allow the system to surface additional information directly on the home page for the user's favorite projects. For example, image the favorite tile as a baseball card. Clicking on the project would allow the card to flip and show statistics. (Last Published, Top Risk, Top Issue, % Complete, Actual Hours Worked Etc. This allows the PM to see management level detail directly on the home page. Using these KPIs - the user could then navigate directly to the specific page. For example, if the Top Risk was of concern - the PM could click on…

                          This may have been covered somewhere else, but it would be nice to interact with a Project task with threaded comments, a way to link to a SharePoint online document rather than attaching a document, @mentions in task comments, #hashtags for tagging projects with attributes, tying into the Outlook calendar for resourcing (i.e. if someone's calendar is marked Out of Office that the resource calendar picks that up (maybe this is already the case), ability to set reminders on tasks based on certain criteria, conditional formatting. I don't mean to mention other products here, but a mashup between how Smarsheet…

                            Hi Megan!

                            This is wonderful feedback, and a direction we are planning/headed in. We’d love more details from you and others to see what type of interactive capabilities are most crucial to see to be more successful with Project.

                            Thanks for sharing, feel free to ad more comments as they come up.

                          • Update File Viewer app to have functionality comparible to Excel Web Services

                            File Viewer is Project Online's answer for sharing parts/portions/whole of Excel files (or other MS documents). Unfortunately, its functionality is only a fraction of what one can customize with Excel Web Services. For example, you are unable to control the size or frame of the sharing Window. The absence of this fundamental control makes customizing the presentation of online Charts and Tables appear amateurish.

                                  Hi John,

                                  From your screenshot, it looks like you don’t have permissions to create projects in your PWA site. Please talk to your site admin and they may be able to help you out with getting the right permissions.

                                  Hope this helps!

                                    There is a Webpart for the Task timeline - but we really need a new Webpart for the Project timeline.
                                    It would be great to show off the new project timeline features on the project site.
