  1. 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.

    Hi everyone! Thanks for the feedback again.

    I’ve broken this down into two general scenario requests and have some more questions.

    Scenario 1) I want to share my Roadmap with a stakeholder but I don’t want them to have editing capabilities, or they might not even have a Project license. Follow ups – is this RO stakeholder a part of the team/group in the Roadmap?

    Scenario 2) I want to export or print to share or present the Roadmap with (possibly outside) stakeholders (whether this is in PPT presentation or a physical printout). Follow ups – why not screenshot the view and put it in PPT or then print?

    Thanks for your inputs!! We’re listening and thinking hard about your scenarios.

    Thank you all for voting on this! Can you all share more about what you’re looking to do with custom fields?

    What kinds of information would you put in them? Why?

    Are you looking to only put them on tasks? Or, on projects and resources as well?

    Do you want each field you create to appear in just for one project? All your projects? Would you be creating them for other people to use in their projects?

    Thanks for your help,
    The Project Team

  3. 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.

  4. Agile boards

    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 everyone!

    We’ve heard your ask for boards, and we understand that its an important way to work.

    We just launched the new Project, with a redesigned user experience that is simple and intuitive. Teams can quickly add new members and set up tasks, and then easily switch between grids, boards, or timeline (Gantt) charts to track progress.

  5. Manual mode tasks

    Please allow tasks to be scheduled in “manual mode” allowing for Project Managers to define start and finish date without auto calculating the effort.

  6. Add templates to project for the web

    When creating a new project we don't want to start from scratch each time. We should be able to select a type of project (or an existing one) and use that as a starting point.

    Add existing Planner capabilities to the task details of Project for the Web (e.g. document attachments, checklists, priority, comments). Also @mentioning as new feature would be great.

    Hi everyone!

    We agree with you here! This is something we want to do — and we’ll keep you updated here on it.

    Is there anything you don’t like about the capabilities? Where do you think it can be improved? Which features do you need most to be most successful from Planner that don’t exist in Project yet?

    Thanks!

  9. Two way integration with microsoft planner and Microsoft projects

    Have full in depth integration between microsoft planned and Project to ensure the reach is greater and not limitted to the Project environment, Ideally it should also link to PWA and the full Microsoft Projects.

    Hi everyone!

    Can you please share why you are asking for a two way integration for Planner and Project? We are thinking a bit about a one way integration (import) from Planner to Project, but would like to better understand the ask for a two way integration.

    If you could share scenarios and stories on why this is important, this would help us better understand the problem so that we can best support our customers!

    To clarify – this post is in the “Project for the web” category, so the feedback should be aligned to the right application!

  10. 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 everyone!

    We listened and agreed with your feedback on Project Home to be more compatible with the right PWA sites, so we committed and released a capability where Project Home users can now change the default PWA site to their preferred PWA site. This allows Project Home users to control the creation location of new Project Online projects, and to navigate more easily to desired PWA sites from Project Home.

    You can learn more about how to use this feature here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Project-Blog/Change-Your-Default-PWA-Site-for-Project-Home/ba-p/353439

    This feature will rollout to tenants gradually over a period of time. Please let us know if there are any questions or comments, we’re actively listening to you all.

  11. Project for the web: Change licensing to allow for extensibility at a sensible price

    Currently extending Project for the Web with the Power Platform requires a Project Plan P3/P5 subscription. This very expensive given that you already have to pay for a PowerApps subscription as well. This is especially drastic if you need to provide access for team members. Their numbers are normally much higher than the PMs.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

    Hi everyone!

    This is something we’re thinking about – but we’d love more feedback from you.

    Can you share specific scenarios that you need for resourcing? What information do you need to be successful? What actions do you take as a result of this information?

    Please share detailed scenarios for us to understand what you need, this will be very helpful to us as we improve Project!

  16. Allow better Extensibility in the CDS

    Allow programatic editing of the entities for Project for the web. Such as editing all Project/Task fields, creating new Tasks, Assigning Resources to tasks, etc.

    This will enable users and Partners to extend the Project For the Web platform and integrate with other applications.

  18. Planner in Roadmap

    Project Roadmap allows portfolio managers to bring in key tasks from Azure Boards and Projects in PWA.

    Planner is used for small, ongoing projects. Please include support to add tasks from Planner to Roadmap as this gives Portfolio managers a better view of all key information in a single screen

    Hi all!

    We’d love to hear more about using Planner in Roadmap. Would you connect multiple Plans together in one Roadmap? As a portfolio manager, would you bring in both Planner tasks and Project tasks in one Roadmap? What type of Planner tasks would you bring into this view? What else would you expect?

    Please share any details and feedback around this – we love hearing your thoughts!

  19. 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)

    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.
