  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  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.

    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. 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…

  9. 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!

  10. Allow adding (Custom) fields to Roadmap

    I would like the option to add more information from a Project Online environment (or others). This could/should be configured per PWA or Per Roadmap (I'm not sure which is better).

    On some PWA's we use different Start / Finish dates that should be used instead of the default Start / Finish.

    There are also fields that have added value to see on a Roadmap. I would suggest that this shows up as a tooltip / pop up when hovering over a task in roadmap.

    Additionally some added data from the Project level (custom) fields would be useful. Such as…

  11. 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)

  12. 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!

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. Ability to publish Roadmap to Sharepoint site

    It would be highly useful for a web part which links to Roadmap, allowing for the ability to publish a Read-Only version of the Roadmap to a Sharepoint site. This would specifically be useful for giving the high level management or executive team view to how projects are tracking.

  16. Read-only permission for Roadmaps

    Currently everyone that has access to a roadmap can modify everything. Normally one would use a roadmap also to provide information to stakeholders. These shouldn't be able to modify the roadmap. Therefore read-only permissions would be helpful.

  17. 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!

  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. Shamsi Calendar in MSP 2019

    Shamsi Calendar in MSP 2019
    Hi there,
    Would you please answer this question?
    I was wondering that if Jalali Calendar (other names: Persian/Solar/Shamsi calendar) is added to Microsoft Project 2019.

    Microsoft has already added Shamsi Calendar into Windows 10 and Excell 2016 ; but it was not added to MSP 2016

    Regards

    P.S.: I mean calendars in the following directory: File menu > Options > Display > Calendar > Calendar Type
