  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. 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.

  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

    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.

  9. 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!

    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.

  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. 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.

  13. 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. 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.

  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. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. Update Icon for Project

    Although it is more of a cosmetic improvement, updating the Project icon to the new modern look would go a long way to help reinforce that Project is still moving forward just like the rest of the O365 apps and not stuck in some forgotten junk pile.

    Heck, even Planner has a new icon!

    I have enclosed a sample of new Project icons for your consideration. Please vote and post which icon you prefer.

    This is simple and easy fix and shows that you care about Project that is extensively used by PM community.

  20. 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.
