  1. Unselect Effort Driven when changing task Type from Fixed Work

    When selecting Fixed Work task type, effort driven becomes ticked, yet when changing from Fixed Work to Fixed Duration or Fixed Units, effort driven stays ticked. It would be better if effort driven was automatically unselected.

    • Roadmap - Item deleted in Project Online

      Roadmap helps to visualize the key phases and milestones across multiple projects managed from Project Online. With many items across multiple rows in Roadmap, it is quite difficult to notice which phases/milestones were deleted in Project Online until the user clicks that item to notice an error message like "This item has been deleted in Project Online." and prompting them to remove the item.

      My ask is can the deleted items have a different color or with a symbol, so that they can inspect and take an action.

      • Indicate if a task/milestone is added to Roadmap within PWA

        "Add to Roadmap" command in PWA is a cool way to add tasks and milestones to row items in Roadmap. Yet, when the user tries to add the task/milestone that is already part of the row item in a Roadmap, PWA should warn or prevent me from not doing so.

        • 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.

          • Add calendar week numbers to timeline/timescale

            I can't display the calendar week numbers in my project timeline. From week 1 to week 52 each year.

            Only "project week numbers" with prefix "W" are available, starting on the week where the project starts. The prefix "W" is not a mandatory need for displaying calendar week numbers.
            It could instead be e.g. "CW" for calendar week. CW01, CW02, CW03....CW49, CW50, CW51, CW52, CW01, etc...

            Eg. this week (from monday 18'th of april) has calendar week number 11. CW11.

            • Bring back version 2003 filter option

              Hi, In the past version off projects like 2003 we had a functionality that if you filter on a resource you will get a list of what you specified. On this filtered list you could collapse and expand the specific task which will show all the items under that task with all its different resources. Can you possibly bring that function back? This makes detail scheduling a little bit easier.

              • Allow the ability to Publish a Roadmap inside a Roadmap

                In a Master Project Replacement option, it will be helpful to have a roadmap as something you can add inside of another roadmap.

                • Allow Access to the ODATA for Roadmap

                  Many organizations want to do reporting automation and surface visualizations around Roadmap Data. Allow us access to all the ODATA behind the row and the tasks being added

                  • Autopopulate the User Creating a Row in Roadmap

                    Please just autopopulate the End User who is creating a row in roadmap, vs. making them add themselves each time.

                    • remove save button

                      Remove save button for Project Scheduler. This button could be useful for PC application, but not for online. Every action should be saved with possibility to undo.
                      I was editing scheduler and forgot to save project. When the session automatically finished, popup window appeared in browser. I pushed “continue to edit” and lost 2 hours of work. I have got scheduler after last save.

                              • Create New > Project should allow to pick PWA

                                With the new feature to change the default Project Web App (PWA) site to their preferred PWA site, the Create New > Project simplifies the way Project is created in the preferred PWA site.

                                When there are multiple PWA sites and the user needs to create a Project in non-default PWA site, they need to navigate to the respective PWA site to create the project.

                                So, look at option to list the PWA sites when user click on “Create New > Project”

                                • "Freeze" item name when scrolling: roadmap

                                  The name of the item should "freeze" on blue item bar that is displayed.

                                  When scrolling through the roadmap, you can only see an item name if the item bar starts within the current view. This results in a bunch of item bars with no title displayed.

                                  For example, in a row I have an item called "Training". It goes from January to June. The title displays on the blue bar for that row. However, when I scroll the roadmap to the right, and I'm only now looking at months starting in April, there is just a blank blue bar…

                                  • Please add an API call to retrieve Timesheet data using the Nuget package Microsoft.SharePointOnline.CSOM.

                                    I want to retrieve Timesheet data to view how the Task hours are rolled up. It is not available in the API using the Microsoft.SharePointOnline.CSOM nuget package. The only way I'm able to retrieve it currently is via an OData request.

                                    • Promote/move individual items in "swimlanes"

                                      Would like to have the ability to move rows within a project view in Roadmap higher or lower. Currently can only do entire project moves.

                                      • 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).

                                          Provide a configuration option to prevent project managers from assigning resources to summary tasks.
