  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. Improve search for milestones

    When searching for the milestones you want to connect to, it would be helpfull with a milestone/task indication so you know if its a milestone or a task you are looking at.

  5. Treat business drivers similar to custom fields when required by workflow

    Currently, if you set the Strategic Impact page to be required in a specific Project Online workflow stage, it prevents the end-user from saving any data on the page until all of the drivers are populated. It would be a lot better experience for the user if the drivers were treated more like custom fields that are required in a certain workflow stage...namely that the drivers can be left blank when saving, but the project cannot submit forward in the workflow without all drivers.

    If that's not a possibility, at least sorting the notification that displays when you attempt to…

  7. Full access to RFT Taks Notes

    Since we want to efficiently work management, we need full access to the task notes in RFT format (binary) (Project Online). Access should be via SCOM or OData feed.

  8. Roadmap: Allow to select Timeline/ Summary/ Field/ Custom Bar. Legend

    Roadmap is a very nice feature which saves some of our time. We used to do the report manually in MS Project but some features are missing and it will be helpful to add.
    1. Allow to select the specified timeline for view with quarter or month zoom.
    2. Allow entry of summary project and bar and roll-up of milestone.
    3. Allow custom field or bar to format the color and text.
    4. Allow to add legend.
    Sample attached.

  9. Allow more granular controls between PWA and SharePoint permissions

    We recently had a situation where numerous SharePoint security groups were accidentally deleted by a PWA administrator. We would like the ability to achieve more granularity between users needing PWA administrative rights and SharePoint administration.

  10. Separate Key dates with same date/time

    Currently if there are 2 or more milestones in a schedule added to Roadmap with the same data/time they are combined into one visual (pin) and the two names of the milestones are packed together.

    However, if only 1 of these items is Red and the other is Green, the single pin will only show the Red value.

    I would like to have the option to see all individual Key Dates as separate visuals. Íts ok for me to have the option to switch between this compact view (current situation) and the more detailed view if that is required.

    Kind…

  11. Unselect Effort Driven when changing task Type from Fixed Work

    When selecting Fixed Work task type, effort driven becomes ticked, yet when changing from Fixed Work to Fixed Duration or Fixed Units, effort driven stays ticked. It would be better if effort driven was automatically unselected.

  12. Roadmap - Item deleted in Project Online

    Roadmap helps to visualize the key phases and milestones across multiple projects managed from Project Online. With many items across multiple rows in Roadmap, it is quite difficult to notice which phases/milestones were deleted in Project Online until the user clicks that item to notice an error message like "This item has been deleted in Project Online." and prompting them to remove the item.

    My ask is can the deleted items have a different color or with a symbol, so that they can inspect and take an action.

  13. Bring back version 2003 filter option

    Hi, In the past version off projects like 2003 we had a functionality that if you filter on a resource you will get a list of what you specified. On this filtered list you could collapse and expand the specific task which will show all the items under that task with all its different resources. Can you possibly bring that function back? This makes detail scheduling a little bit easier.

  14. Allow the ability to Publish a Roadmap inside a Roadmap

    In a Master Project Replacement option, it will be helpful to have a roadmap as something you can add inside of another roadmap.

  16. Autopopulate the User Creating a Row in Roadmap

    Please just autopopulate the End User who is creating a row in roadmap, vs. making them add themselves each time.

  17. remove save button

    Remove save button for Project Scheduler. This button could be useful for PC application, but not for online. Every action should be saved with possibility to undo.
    I was editing scheduler and forgot to save project. When the session automatically finished, popup window appeared in browser. I pushed “continue to edit” and lost 2 hours of work. I have got scheduler after last save.
