    • Should be possible to save personal views in Project Center

      It should be possible to save the setting of a view in Project Center, like save a view with certain filter and/or grouping.

      • 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)

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • Tweak How the 'Task Calendars' currently work to address a small anomally

              The topic has been elaborate upon in more detail on Technet :

              https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/projectserver/en-US/6a430cb8-f529-46e8-8b6b-f4b361c87cc1/task-calendar-do-not-ignore-resource-calendar?forum=projectprofessional2010general

              But in summary, there are three (3) combinations (or scenarios) with respect to the how calendars can affect scheduling:

              1) Task Calendar = None (the default)
              2) Task calendar specified, with “Scheduling Ignores Resource calendars” = OFF
              3) Task calendar specified, with “Scheduling Ignores Resource calendars” = ON

              Scenario 1:
              The behaviour of the first scenario (above, i.e., #1 Task Calendar “= None”) behaves like a “union” between the task’s Start and Finish dates and the Resource Calendar—i.e., the assignment is driven by the resource calendar (provided…

              • Roadmap: Add category field for roadmap items and allow to pivot the view by category to create swimlane charts

                In larger programs tasks of a certain category are distributed over mutliple projects and initiatives. By adding a category field (a bit like the 6 labels in Planner) would allow to regroup the information into swimlanes, which would in turn increase the reporting value of roadmaps.

                Kind regards,
                Trutz-Sebastian Stephani

                • Possible Permissions Bug with Project Centre Close Button

                  When a Portfolio Manager (with default permissions) attempts to edit a PDP page for a project, they can put the project into Edit mode, make changes, save it, but cannot close it. When they click the Close button on the Ribbon, a JavaScript error is thrown but not displayed to the end-user, as a result the end-user sees no action taking place.

                  The end-user has full permissions to save, publish, check-in Project plans, as well as force check-in their and other users plans.

                  This exception occurs in
                  https://static.sharepointonline.com/bld/_layouts/15/16.0.8412.1210/inc/pwa/library/pdplib.js

                      • Permissions by "Project Type"

                        Allow for setting the permissions for projects online by Enterprise Project Type. I want to be able to select with checkboxes what Project types a user is able to edit, create, etc. So on the user management page, please add a drop list with multiple select, that contains the Enterprise project types. This will give the selected users permissions to only create, edit, view the selected project types.

                              Roadmap zoom should be allow to zoom down to quarters or years. This would allow viewing Roadmaps that are many years in the planning.

                                    CSOM Limitations in Project Online- Currently, there is no automated way to move projects between categories using CSOM which is not allowing users to add projects which they require to category and restricting them to use the default filter options available in the category. However it used to be possible using PSI in older versions.

                                        • RoadMap - In addition to RAG status for tasks, add a text box in "Open Details" to provide context! Or connect Risks & Issues.

                                          I love that you can add status to the task in a visually appealing way. I would love to be able to click that tasks and provide more details either by:

                                          1) Open textbox
                                          2) Ideally, connect any risks & issues attached here. Even a hyperlink to the risk or issue attached to the task would be nice!
