  1. "Freeze" item name when scrolling: roadmap

    The name of the item should "freeze" on blue item bar that is displayed.

    When scrolling through the roadmap, you can only see an item name if the item bar starts within the current view. This results in a bunch of item bars with no title displayed.

    For example, in a row I have an item called "Training". It goes from January to June. The title displays on the blue bar for that row. However, when I scroll the roadmap to the right, and I'm only now looking at months starting in April, there is just a blank blue bar…

    • Please add an API call to retrieve Timesheet data using the Nuget package Microsoft.SharePointOnline.CSOM.

      I want to retrieve Timesheet data to view how the Task hours are rolled up. It is not available in the API using the Microsoft.SharePointOnline.CSOM nuget package. The only way I'm able to retrieve it currently is via an OData request.
      Thanks

        • Use teams for files etc. rather than SharePoint

          Currently Project online is based around SharePoint however it would be better if the Sites component of this was a Team, especially with the way MS is developing Teams. This would allow project chat etc. and yet still have sharepoint for those organisations that are not yet comfortable with Teams itself.

          • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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

                  • Roadmaps - Allow date to be typed in

                    It would be nice if we can type in a date in the screen below. Sometimes it is harder to scroll if I am looking for a roadmap/project from past (or) future.

                    • 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.

                      • PWA Storage reaching threshold notifications

                        Automated notifications should be enabled/ sent when PWA storage (not SharePoint storage) reaches 90% of its storage quota. The notifications can be sent to Global admin or SharePoint collection admins. Manual monitoring the PWA storage is not correct and efficient way.

                          In our organization we are using Project Online to track large and small projects, enhancements, and BAU. The ability to add a custom field on the new engagement request with an additional look up table would help resource managers group requests accordingly

                          • Timesheet comments for every line submitted

                            For tasks planned at a high level - e.g. 'Bake product'. It would be great for every submission of timesheet data if there was a comment. So, if at the beginning of the day I submit an hour baking a cup cake and then later an hour baking a bun then I would like to have a comment for each line on each save. The total for the day would be 2 hours and it is possible to see what comments were made as the day progresses.

                            • 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.

                                  • 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

                                          Hi John,

                                          From your screenshot, it looks like you don’t have permissions to create projects in your PWA site. Please talk to your site admin and they may be able to help you out with getting the right permissions.

                                          Hope this helps!
                                          ~J
