  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 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.

  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…

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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)

  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. Decouple work and duration

    For the management of resources in the AEC space, the option of decoupling work and duration would be extremely beneficial. The easiest way, that we see, would be to add a 4th option to the Task Type of “None” or “Not Fixed”. The goal of this addition would be to completely decouple work and duration for assigned resources so when one is updated the other remains unchanged.

  12. 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.

  13. 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).

    Hi all!

    We appreciate the feedback and understanding your scenarios! As we plan/develop this, we would appreciate continuing detail on how you would use this, where you would use this (row level/item level), and how this would benefit you.

    Thanks again to our Uservoice community!

  14. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. Schedule Versioning

    It would be useful to have versions saved in Project Online for the schedules. Since the emphasis is brought on the web access and the focus is on the ease of use, having versions of the schedules would be great. It could be configured (number of retentions) in the PWA server settings, like it can be done on Sharepoint lists. And the restore should be as easy as selecting a version, viewing it and restoring it.
    This can be merged with the following feedback:
    https://microsoftproject.uservoice.com/forums/218133-microsoft-project/suggestions/12261789-provide-support-for-backup-and-restore-of-a-single

  20. Rejected engagements should NOT show up in "Capacity Planning -HEATMAP" view

    PWA Issue:
    Rejected engagement shows up in "Capacity Planning > Capacity and Engagements Heatmap" view when "Include proposed bookings" is checked

    This seems to be a defect because:
    • in "Capacity Planning > Capacity and Engagements Heatmap" view > Rejected engagements are showing up as demand hours >This is not a correct logic and needs to be fixed.
    • The other “Capacity Planning Views” are not reflecting rejected project engagements. This shows us that there is a defect in the "Capacity Planning > Capacity and Engagements Heatmap" view

    Suggested solutions:
    1. Remove rejected engagements from the "Capacity Planning > Capacity…
