Hi all -
We’re planning on bringing our boards online – but we want to make sure we do it the right way for you all. We started this in the Client, and we’ll be using feedback on the Client boards features to help bring the boards to Project Online.
Please continue leaving feedback on the Project Client boards, and we’ll let you know when this feature is available online!
Having the ability for my clients to go onto a web page, click and drag an item from one lane to another, without them ever knowing that SharePoint or MS project exist would be a huge delighted. Having them do it and me "approve" it on the back end without them ever knowing it would also be great. (I'm a huge fan of the SharePoint and MS Proj and Project Professional construct; most of my clients just get aggravated by it all so I end up making dynamic excel spreadsheets for everyone and don't tell them that everything is being done outside of excel. Excel is just their window into the "last best-known information" Everything you all can do to surface information to non Microsoft fanboys like myself ... make me a bigger fanboy.
The "Publish," "Save," "checking-in" "refresh the PWA online web page" could use some work. There is a lot of clicking and waiting for something to process. Clicking refresh to see if it processed ... rinse and repeat. waiting around that could be solved with a simple console. (A console other than Microsoft Edge.) Having said that the fact that this works as well as it does amazes me)
The PMI technical definition of risk is an event that has between a 0% - 100% chance of happening. An Issue has a 100% chance of happening. When the item has a 0% chance of happening it is "closed." Risks and Issues are neither positive or negative they simply are. For example, one could exploit a positive risk for the increased benefit of everyone. Seeing as MS Proj is at its heart an Earned Value Management (EVM) tool a systematic way of taking an item and flagging it as "risk," "issue," "positive," "negative," and risk response ... etc would dovetail nicely. The ability to have "one to one," "Many to one," "one to many" and "many to many" between Risks, Issues, Responses to WBS items native to the MS Proj MPP file and associated PWA would be HUGE. (I cannot imagine the engineering/programming effort that it would take Microsoft to accomplish this but these are the same people that made MS Proj work in the first place So I know they can do it)
