  1. Better Integration with O365

    Would like to see better integration between PWA and the O365 suite. For example. I want to see all my PWA sites in Outlook similar to how I see Groups today. I want to be able to link a Team to a PWA site, or create a team with a PWA site. I want to be able to see all project tasks assigned to me in Outlook and ToDo.

  2. More Interactive Capabilities with Project Tasks

    This may have been covered somewhere else, but it would be nice to interact with a Project task with threaded comments, a way to link to a SharePoint online document rather than attaching a document, @mentions in task comments, #hashtags for tagging projects with attributes, tying into the Outlook calendar for resourcing (i.e. if someone's calendar is marked Out of Office that the resource calendar picks that up (maybe this is already the case), ability to set reminders on tasks based on certain criteria, conditional formatting. I don't mean to mention other products here, but a mashup between how Smarsheet…

    Hi Megan!

    This is wonderful feedback, and a direction we are planning/headed in. We’d love more details from you and others to see what type of interactive capabilities are most crucial to see to be more successful with Project.

    Thanks for sharing, feel free to ad more comments as they come up.

  4. Roadmap to lock or save zoom filter

    The Roadmap zoom filter always returns to weekly views. The zoom should maintain or lock the last zoom settings. Each time I return to Dashboard, I must reset my zoom to see a full year.

  7. 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.

  8. Directly import the project timeline into Roadmap

    PM's already create a timeline in their schedule with the most important schedule items. It would be very useful and saving a lot of time to import a timeline in stead of all task separately.

  10. Roadmap: When searching items to add, show additional details in the search results

    Show additional data in the search results for items you want to add. Today all you get is the task names that match. This isn't useful if you have lots of tasks with the same names. Include the task start and / or finish dates in the search results so you can see work out which task you want to add without guessing. You can only tell you guessed correctly / incorrectly when you select the task from the results then see details in the selected tasks table.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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”

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. Allow Roadmap Flow actions for general use

    It seems like there are several useful Flow actions specific to Roadmaps. It would be very useful to have these flows available as actions that can be added to other flows. Several integration scenarios will open up.

  17. Show all items from a project when adding to Roadmap

    When we try to add items from a project, it is cumbersome to ‘search’ for something specific.

    It would be nice to have the list show up with multiselect- checkboxes, so that multiple items can be added easily.

    It would be awesome to have the 'Outline' feature from the schedule available so that the lists can be expanded or collapsed.

    And finally, ability to connect to a specific view from schedule webpart will allow admins to build several views that might just be milestones/summary tasks etc.,

  18. Viewing multiple projects and roadmaps in one overview/page/tab including adding dependencies between them.

    Have the ability to view multiple projects and roadmaps in one overview including adding dependencies between them
    For our organisation we use multiple projects and roadmaps for different projects but they DO have dependencies between them. It would be perfect to be able to view them all in one overview/screen and see the dependencies between them instead of having to remind them/flag them all the time. This would make the life of our product owner so much better.

    If this could be shared through Teams as well that would make it even better.

    Thanks in advance for looking into this.

  19. Roadmap: Integrate iteration start and finish dates into user story items pulled from Azure DevOps

    Currently the roadmap flow only pulls in the start date and the target date from Azure DevOps items as start and finish dates for roadmap items. For user story items the target date cannot be set in out-of-the-box mode. The best would be if the dates for user stories could be pulled from the Azure DevOps iterations as user stories are prioritized in the backlog and then assigned to a sprint iteration which in turn has a defined timeslot.

  20. Show item type when adding items from Azure DevOps to a roadmap

    When adding an item from Azure DevOps the user can't see if it is a feature or a user story. Items with similar titles might be wrongly selected. It would be good to get an additional inidcation on the item type in the selection pane.
    Kind regards,
    Trutz Stephani
