  1. Please allow a user to open multiple project files in separate windows

    Please allow a user to open multiple project files in separate windows. Microsoft's primary product is Windows (with an 'S') - the very defining feature of the operating system is that you can open multiple (plural) windows at the same time.

    Quite frankly, it is ridiculous that this functionality does not exist, and even more ridiculous that Microsoft's feedback for this often-requested feature is "this is not possible, try printing to PDF". The lack of this feature seriously handicaps an otherwise very powerful piece of software.

  2. Make created/uploaded content much easier to share.

    If I share content in a teams channel it should be available to all in that channel. Anyone who is added should automatically gain the access privileges to all content already shared to that group.

    OR

    Whenever i create content and add it to SP or teams i am automatically greeted with a msg/txt box that asks what permissions I would like to grant others to access this content.

    Current iteration of sharing is inefficient at best and annoying to be honest.

  3. Please stop telling me to change my password.

    When I open project I keep getting notified that I need to change my password. The link to change tells me it can not be done there. My password has been updated.

  5. Roadmap datasource from Excel

    Add Excel as a datasource for Add New Row tracking data. Roadmaps are simple in nature and do not always require complex tracking of all project information. When starting to build a roadmap you may only have the high level information in a tool such as Excel. By allowing this simple creation of the roadmap it can evolve over time from a draft roadmap to a full fledged roadamp.

  6. Make it functional.

    This package lacks the basic ability to import and export files, and data. Surely in any project setting this must be fundamental. Import, edit, export have to be enabled. This platform think you are a project team of one!

  7. Adding an enterprise resource twice to an activity

    I have a two week activity. The first week the enterprise resource works 40 hours. The next week the resource works 20 hours. I would like to be able to add the resource for two weeks at 20 hours and then add the resource again to the same activity for 20 hours the first week.

  8. 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…

  10. show all mouse pointer changes when sharing screen via Skype

    Today, any participant watching me move my mouse in MS Project can't see the specific changes of the mouse pointer, e.g. when moving the mouse over a task to trigger the indention.
    In my own view, the mouse pointer will change from a big white cross to a small arrow symbol and vice versa, so that I can see when the drag feature is available.
    The participants in my shared session over Skype do not see that the mouse pointer has changed at all. It rather seems to be "stuck" to the old symbol.
    How can one possibly do a…

  11. 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…

  13. sync to modern sharepoint list

    The ability to sync a project to a classic SharePoint task list is really useful, however, modern SharePoint pages cannot utilise that type of list, which limits its usefulness as a way to present information to users if you're trying to stay with the modern paradigm.

    It would be extremely handy if modern lists could be targetted by the sync function.

  14. Supply new users with a tool to assist identifying & defining what the customers hardware currently is?actually is that is applying

    Supply new users with a tool to assist in identifying & defining what the customers' hardware currently is? What their respective hardware can currently handle and then make the necessary sales suggestions
    This will create a short cut to expediting the entire process thus achieving user convenience and confidence and streamline the entire application

  15. Business Drivers not available in Odata feed

    Hello,
    we are using both Power BI Desktop & Power BI Pro to analyse project-related information. The information is maintained in Project Online using PWA _api/ProjectData ODATA feed. We are able to view and load the following tables : - PrioritizationDrivers - Prioritizations - PortfolioAnalyses - PortfolioAnalysisProjects, - BusinessDrivers, - BusinessDriverDepartments - PrioritizationDriverRelations data - And Projects data. We would like to analyse the mapping of Projects directly to Business Drivers as captured in the Project Strategic Impact Page (in a Webpart). This data is not visible in any tables viewable in the ODATA feed. I feel there is a…

  17. 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

  18. 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.
