  1. default instance

    To extend project for the web via cds, this is only achievable via leveraging the default CDS instance. The default instance is not designed to be production therefore creating a powerapp for end users leveraging this is not a good idea (as the whole company has environment maker access). We need the ability to create a production instance for CDS for project for the web.

  2. print roadmaps

    provide the ability to print a roadmap that is created. This would be great to show to the c-level the roadmaps

  3. Enable the Recent project list and cards to be configurable + sorting

    Enable the Recent project list and favorites cards to be configurable to show more data. As Project Home works across multiple PWA instances, each with potentially different configuration, allowing up a fixed number of intrinsic fields would be good. Maybe up to 5 additional intrinsic fields. Then enable sorting on the Recent project list using the column headers. Also provide the ability to sort the favorites cards too using the data displayed on the cards.

  4. Project as a tab in Teams: Do not require license for viewing

    When adding a tab in Teams for Project, many stakeholders are interested in viewing the plan, but it is very impractical to have to manage licenses for a potentially large group of people who just want to take a quick look.

    Therefore, it should be default that anybody with an Office365 license should be able to just look at plans. For those who have assigned tasks, the current licensing structure is fine.

  5. Destroy the silos

    Right now MS has three products that do the same thing with differing levels of complexity: Planner, Project For The Web, and Project. MS would unleash incredible value if these were integrated, or better yet just combined into one product that has more options turned on as you increase features.

    Project For The Web is a good step forward to making project management software interface so simple that anybody can understand it. Well done! Planner gives very basic users a way to manage tasks. Again, well done! The problem is that their functionality is so silo'd that they don't provide…

  6. Partial Finish to Start + Start to Start

    Sometimes a task is not dependent on another task finishing, but rather is dependent on another task being near completion (ie. Task 8 is scheduled to start when Task 7 is 1 week away from completion).

    Similarly, it would be beneficial to be able to schedule two tasks to be predicated on each other (ie. Task 8 is scheduled to start at the same time as Task 7 - Neither 7 nor 8 can begin without the other).

  7. It would be really good if you can extract Project online to an excel or PDF document

    It would be really good if you can extract Project online to an excel or PDF document so that it can be shared with others who dont have the access to project online

  8. Check Out/Publish vs Live Project Updates in New Project

    This is less of a suggestion but more of a clarification request. With this new Project product, the planning methodology seems to have fundamentally shifted from a 'check out file, make/test schedule changes, and publish' to a more 'live planning' approach where any changes are pushed instantly. There are still some businesses that do not plan in this way and are more sensitive to changes in dates, especially when automation (e.g. email/push notifications) are applied to the schedule. How does Microsoft plan to accommodate for organizations who may not want all of their planning to be published in real-time?

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.,

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. timeline zoom

    Zoom function for project timeline does not zoom enough out to get a good overview of a project with long duration. Should be possibel to show the whole project in one view.

  18. Multiple non consecutive dates in a single task

    In some situations there is the need to have the same task over and over just because it repeats several times in the course of non consecutive dates.

    It would be nice to have only one tasks and define all these different dates in this same task.

  20. Indicate if a task/milestone is added to Roadmap within PWA

    "Add to Roadmap" command in PWA is a cool way to add tasks and milestones to row items in Roadmap. Yet, when the user tries to add the task/milestone that is already part of the row item in a Roadmap, PWA should warn or prevent me from not doing so.
