  1. 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.

    • 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)

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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

            • 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.

              • Project Roadmap & Top-Down approaches

                Roadmap feature will be definitively amazing when it will allow Top-Down approaches. This would make Project ready for programme management as currently defined in almost all industries.

                A general requirement is to get a "Programme" level (object) where could be attached metadata, resources requirements, budget information. To be able to define this information at a top level and then to compare it to consolidated data comng from projects (Bottom level) is a recurrent need.

                As an example, it would be great to have the capacity to compare programmes budgets with operational projects costs.

                • Surface Additional Project Meta-Data for Favorite Projects

                  It would be valuable to allow the system to surface additional information directly on the home page for the user's favorite projects. For example, image the favorite tile as a baseball card. Clicking on the project would allow the card to flip and show statistics. (Last Published, Top Risk, Top Issue, % Complete, Actual Hours Worked Etc. This allows the PM to see management level detail directly on the home page. Using these KPIs - the user could then navigate directly to the specific page. For example, if the Top Risk was of concern - the PM could click on…

                  • 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.

                    • Task and Timesheet pages - additional row for planned committment

                      THIS REALLY DOES NEED ADDING
                      As a planner - We are often not certain when a task will be completed (e.g. 5 days Effort over 20 days) and the Engineer will decide (with input if required) when s/he will complete the work depending on many factors. Please add a row for each task on the Task page and Timesheet page with a title for the row definable but defaulted to 'Commitment'.

                      Thanks

                      • Roadmap Comments

                        It would be great if we could add comments that would appear when you hover over an item on the roadmap. Especially needed for tasks that are at risk. You either need to see an explaination or a link back to the project where you can see additional detail like Risks and Issues. But a comment on the Roadmap would be a great addition.

                                • Bulk Publishing of PWA projects

                                  We use the PWA for managing hundreds of projects, generally it is quite good. However, it is cumbersome and slow to manually enter each project and publish progress. Particularly when working on multiple projects at once. It would be very beneficial if there was a means of publishing progress across all or a selection of projects in bulk.

                                    • 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.,

                                      • Add task and Timesheet daily notes

                                        Please add functionality so that notes can be captured per day on Tasks.aspx and timesheet.aspx.

                                        Some tasks are defined at a high level because of a number of reasons which include 1) the customer is managing the task and we don't know what the engineer will be working on in our plans, then engineer needs to record time and comment for invoice approval. 2) when our engineers provide support we allocate time but not which tickets they worked on. A daily comment will be a tie back to the support system.

                                        • Add Colouring

                                          Hi,
                                          the roadmap is a perfect tool, however it would be really helpful to get a colour function in it. In order you can give the several projects/tasks in the roadmap a colour. This way it makes it possible to have a good visualization and to see quickly the different projects/programs that are part of the portfolio / Roadmap.
