    Hi everyone!

    Thank you for your continued feedback here. We are working on enabling you to create and use custom fields in Project for the web.

    While we don’t have an ETA quite yet, we will provide one as soon as we can.

    As always, let us know if you have any more feedback (on this suggestion, or other suggestions).

  2. Project for the web: Add existing Planner capabilities (e.g. document attachments, checklists, priority)

    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!
    ~J

  3. 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 – thanks for the feedback so far. In regards to Planner & Project for the web, we are definitely listening to these scenarios and thinking about how to improve them!

    Would helping import from Planner to Project be helpful in this case, and enabling teams to work in Project?

    I read a lot of comments on making sure we can leverage full Planner capabilities in Project, team members being able to see and complete their task, and not wanting to “re-write” and “move” tasks over. Are these the most important scenarios for us when thinking about this area?

  4. 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.

    Hi everyone!

    We understand the need and ask for templates. We will be starting with a Copy Project feature, and continue to think about template scenarios. This is not a one or the other scenario!

    Please continue to share your template scenarios, and we will keep you posted.

    See here for Copy Project: https://microsoftproject.uservoice.com/forums/914203-project-for-the-web/suggestions/38956756-project-for-the-web-copy-project

  5. Project for the Web is not available for Education customers.

    Not including Education customers who have A3/5 or Project-specific SKUs for Project for the Web is a big miss. Aside from cost, what are the barriers for switching this on for Education?

    Hi everyone – we announced Project for the web being available for EDU a few weeks ago. The plans you’ll need to access it are as follows:

    • Project Plan 3 for students
    • Project Plan 3 for faculty
    • Project Plan 5 for students
    • Project Plan 5 for faculty

    Hope this helps!

  6. Teams Integration

    Similar to Planner's integration. Having a site part that points is not good enough.

    Hi everyone,

    This is currently in development, and we will provide updates when we have them. Additionally, we have just announced that we are supporting read-only access for Projects & Roadmaps with an O365 license. This will start rolling out next month, which will be beneficial for Teams View Access once we complete this! You can learn more here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=60646

    Thank you!

  7. 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.

    This is currently in development and we will provide updates when we have them. We’re working on changing the scheduling behavior for tasks with assignees.

    You will be able to set the Effort and Duration to be independent of each other for tasks with assignments. When Effort is set, Duration will not change. We will let you know when this update becomes available.

  8. 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.

  9. Resource Management

    We need to be able to plan resources within project for the web and the ability to get an overview over all projects in our portfolio including a view if someone is overbooked etc.

    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!

  10. Import mpp file into MS project Web

    It would be great to have a Button to Import mpp file into MS project Web.
    We usually use MS Project client (mpp file) to plan and monitor the project, and we can't even copy and paste MS fields to MS project web or upload the file directly. We have to replicate everything we have on the MS project Client by hand to MS project Web! That doesn't make sense at all!

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for the votes, we’re definitely thinking about this one. If we had an import to Project button, would this improve your experience in the Web? Would you be able to be successful managing your projects purely in the web? If not, why not? If you would still need the client, why?

    Thank you!

  11. Guest access to projects

    Often there are external users from customers or freelance involved which should have access to a project or roadmap as well without the need of having a project license. This is possible in other project management solutions!

  13. Saving Baseline (Project for the Web)

    One of the biggest advantages of the MS Project (and Project Online) to the other compactor products in web based platforms is the possibility of having Baselines. Without a Baseline controlling the plan and having Planned vs Actual stats wouldn't be easy.
    Please add the option of saving baseline on any given status of the plan without overwriting them so w can compare current status with multiple baselines.

    Hi everyone!

    Thanks for the feedback on baselines. I’d love to hear more, and get a discussion going to understand the needs and usage here.

    What’s the most important set of information in a baseline? How often do you take baselines? How often do you compare baselines?

    For those of you who have not previously used the desktop client or Project Online, how have you been tracking baselines on your projects?

    Thanks!

  14. 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.

  15. Edit Project for web schedule in Project Desktop app

    Hi everyone!

    I’d like to understand why you need to edit the schedule in the desktop app, versus just in the web? What key components can be improved for you to work in the web, without needing the client?

    If we provided an import from .mpp to the web, would you be able to be successful managing your project in the web? If no, why not?

    Thank you! We love hearing your feedback.

  16. Project for the web : Tasks effort not linked to duration

    We should be able to specify a effort on a tasks that is less than a working day without affecting the duration.

    Example : I have a resource on my project that is shared with other teams. I only have him/her 2 hours a day, and this time for 10 working days is enough to complete the task. So I want to have a task with 10 working days duration with a total effort of 20 hours.

    In the current state, if I indicate the duration, it will automatically change the effort to a full day work (80 hours), if…

    Based on the feedback given, this is currently back in development and we will provide updates when we have them. We’re working on changing the scheduling behavior for tasks with assignees.

    You will be able to set the Effort and Duration to be independent of each other for tasks with assignments. When Effort is set, Duration will not change. We will let you know when this update becomes available.

  17. Project for the web: Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes

    Currently the Task entity in CDS is locked. Allow updating the Tasks entity via Flow to enable integration with business processes. Also adding additional fields to type the activities in the schedule, would be helpful.

  18. Make Project on the Web available in new Environments

    Power Platform supports multiple environments (Automate and Apps). It should be possible to have a separate Project environment also. The default environment is not enough for global organizations and multiple, different entities. Make it possible to create Project environments just like Automate (Microsoft Flow) and Power Apps.

  19. Project team members what to be able to see just their tasks like you can in Planner.

    In the board view on project in team, Assignee would like to be able to just see tasks assigned to him/her. Perhaps a tab on the left side of teams like planner that would show all of my tasks regardless of which project they are associated with.

    Hi everyone!

    You might have noticed that you can filter by string on the Grid view. You can now filter on task names and assignees (check the top right corner of your projects!)

    I’m marking this as partially complete, as I know there were many other asks here. Please continue sharing your needs and scenarios around filtering.

    Thank you!
