  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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”

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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

  8. Information on project last modified/published by

    Along with the last modified date/last published date, there should also be a last modified by/last published by information (user who last modified/published)

  9. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. Shamsi Calendar in MSP 2019

    Shamsi Calendar in MSP 2019
    Hi there,
    Would you please answer this question?
    I was wondering that if Jalali Calendar (other names: Persian/Solar/Shamsi calendar) is added to Microsoft Project 2019.

    Microsoft has already added Shamsi Calendar into Windows 10 and Excell 2016 ; but it was not added to MSP 2016

    Regards

    P.S.: I mean calendars in the following directory: File menu > Options > Display > Calendar > Calendar Type

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
