  1. Agile boards in PWA

    The new agile features added to Project are good for planning. Key aspect of agile is communication in teammembers, so access to the plan/boards for team is very important.
    It can be sufficient just display the boards in project site or in PWA.

    Hi all -

    We’re planning on bringing our boards online – but we want to make sure we do it the right way for you all. We started this in the Client, and we’ll be using feedback on the Client boards features to help bring the boards to Project Online.

    Please continue leaving feedback on the Project Client boards, and we’ll let you know when this feature is available online!

  2. Roadmap allow zooming to quarters and years.

    Roadmap zoom should be allow to zoom down to quarters or years. This would allow viewing Roadmaps that are many years in the planning.

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for this suggestion. Please keep sharing what level of zoom you use Roadmaps for!

    Here are some questions that can spark discussion in the comments that can help us build the right scenarios into Roadmap:

    What duration do you use the Roadmap (1 quarter, 1 year, 5 years…etc)? What type of work are you tracking to use this time period? Would you use multiple views or stay on one – and why?

    Thanks everyone, looking forward to reading comments and discussions in this topic!

  3. Roadmap to add project summary task

    When adding items to a row, Roadmap does not allow adding project summary row. This would be good feature because Roadmap can show start and end of project.

  4. 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…

  5. Modern SharePoint and Project Online

    Modern SharePoint and Project Online
    MS has made ALOT of feature improvements with the modern SharePoint. However not all those features extend to Project online.

    I'd like to be able to replace my project detail pages with the more robust PowerApps and Flow.
    Those PDP are so old school and do not allow much in the way of dynamic content.

  6. Roadmap needs ability to add rows for proposed projects

    Roadmap needs ability to add rows for proposed projects. Currently way to do this, requires me to create a dummy project and published.

    Hi all!

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’d love to understand more around this scenario.

    Would you be adding tasks and milestones? Do you ever expect to connect this row to a project, or create a project? What happens after the proposal state to the row? Why else would you be creating blank rows and tasks? Would you have a roadmap with both types of rows?…

    The comments below are very helpful already, so please keep them coming! We want to better understand why customers need this scenario fulfilled.

    Hi Kurt!

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’d love to learn more about your scenarios of using Roadmap with Teams from you and others! (Ex. What would you expect to do in the Roadmap from Teams?). Any comments and responses around this topic are extremely helpful to us.

    For now, a temporary solution is to add the URL of a Roadmap as a “Website” in Teams.

  8. 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

    Hi all!

    We would love to learn more about this suggestion. What types of Jira projects are you expecting to connect? What type of Jira issues would you want to bring in? What interactions would you expect with the Jira connection in Roadmap?

    Any comments and suggestions here would be helpful for us to better understand this scenario.

    Thanks!

  9. Roadmap export

    I'd like the ability to export or print a roadmap to PDF to make it easier to share for status reporting with non-Project users.

    Hey all!

    We want to understand this scenario better. Why do you want to export/print to PDF/Powerpoint? Is the scenario you’re trying to solve just sharing Roadmap to non Project users? Would a read-only share mode be something you’re looking into?

    We’d love to hear more comments and scenarios around what you’re trying to solve here!

  10. Project Home: Add possibilty to set default PWA settings via Powershell

    It should be possible to set this setting via PowerShell for all users as a tenant admin (e.g. set a link by department for an IT and a Finance instance) and set a new default link for new users.

  11. Display task progress (percent complete) on the added task on Project Roadmap

    For each task row added to the Project Roadmap, the added row should pull in the % complete information from Project Online, just like a tracking gantt view is displayed in Project.

  12. Roadmap: Keep associated Flow names in sync with roadmap name changes

    If you set up a roadmap and link to a Project / Board without the Roadmap name being updated from "Untitled Roadmap", the Flow name is "Untitled roadmap - {row name} - {GUID}". When you then set a Roadmap name or even later change the name, you can't tell which Flows are associated to which Roadmaps. Can the Flow names be kept in sync with the Roadmap names? Maybe even prefix all Flow names with "Roadmap: {Roadmap Name} - {row name} - {GUID}" so that all the Roadmap Flows are clearly identifiable?

  13. 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?

  14. Project Roadmap - ability to pull in the status values from Project Online

    Currently, once the Project Online task is added to the "Row" on Project Roadmap, only the following Status values can be displayed:

    a) Not set
    b) On track
    c) At risk
    d) High risk
    e) Done.

    In addition, Project Roadmap should give users the choice to pull in task status values from Project Online. (On schedule, Late, Future Task, Inactive, Complete)

  15. Make the ribbon visible permanently

    We are rolling MSPO out to a large user base. The fact that the ribbon is hidden every time they access a new page is not useful and is non-intuitive as it doesn't work like that in the other MS applications.

    Please add an option to make the ribbon visible permanently.

  17. 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.

  18. Project Online reporting data replication to Azure SQL DB

    As SSRS is still the king of operational reporting it is quite important to bring the Project Online Data to a SQL Server DB, currently, the way to do it is either through SSIS ETL packages which are error-prone or custom solutions which require quite a bit of development and maintenance. If data from reporting schema objects can be synced to an Azure SQL DB, this will provide a very seamless mechanism to solve this problem. Dynamics 365 also provides a similar service

  19. Add a quick project search field in the Project Center

    Currently to search for a project it is necessary to create a filter using the option of filters on the project center. This involves a large number of clicks to search a project by name.
    Including a quick search field in the project center will improve this search.

  20. Roadmap needs to allow notes to be associated with a project and/or tasks

    We use Project OnLine, and I use Roadmap to review programs status weekly with my PMs. It will be very useful if I can enter my notes on the entire project swim-lane or a particular task. Otherwise I have to keep switching between Roadmap and my note-taking application (I use Agenda on my Mac).
