  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  5. Conditional formatting for tasks

    In a previous version of Project a completed task in the task list used to show as greyed out. I liked this because visually my eye was drawn to incomplete tasks while still being able to see what had been completed.

    Conditional formatting like what's available in Excel would be perfect. Id be able to create a conditonal format that says if the task is 100% complete, show with a green background, if it is between 0 and 100 (i.e. in progress) show with a yellow background, and if the task is 0% complete show with a red background.

  6. 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.

  7. 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
    Stew

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Please create "Cumulative Baseline Cost" Field for creating S-Curve Reports within MS Project Desktop

    In order to create an effective S-Curve report, the schedule should, at the minimum, be able to display the Cumulative Planned Cost (Baseline Cost) and the Cumulative Actual Cost (Actual Cost) along the project timeline (Weekly or Monthly).
    Only the Cumulative Cost field is available right now. There is no field that can be use for the Cumulative Baseline Cost.
    Right now our team would have to develop the S-Curve report using PowerBI. it is doable but I would prefer for it to be done in MS Project Desktop to keep my workflow simple.

  14. Roadmap: Change Default App Name in D365

    The default app name in Dynamics 365 is "Dynamics 365 - custom", create this app with a more meaningful name such as "Project Roadmap"

  15. 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!

  16. Criação de sites modelos desabilitada

    Muito ilógico quando se habilita a função Infraestrutura de Publicação a opção salvar site como modelo desaparecer e mesmo que desabilite novamente o conteúdo dos novos sites não herdam o site modelo.

  18. Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT)

    Please bring back PERT. Project used to include this. It is a very powerful tool. It is essential in identifying and managing uncertainty. In today's world there are a lot of advanced analysis software programs that can take advantage of this. Advanced users really need this.

  20. 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.
