    Hi everyone!

    I’m updating this to “partially complete” as we have finished rolling out the “Copy Project” feature. You can access this by opening a project, clicking on the title to open the details pane, hitting the “…” in the top corner, and then the Copy command.

    You can get more details, tips and tricks here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/copying-projects-in-project-for-the-web/ba-p/1477766

    We’re still thinking about the specific templates scenario and reading your comments below. Please try the feature out and let us know what other feedback/improvements can be made.

    Is there any progress or feedback from MS on this idea? The last material update on this idea was 8 months ago now.

    Will a copy function that works eventually be rolled out? By "works" I mean one that copies the task assignments.

    The UI is so punishing for assigning resources that our admins are begging us to drop use of the product. The task assignment process invokes a mandatory drop-down so there is no ability to just type in a resource name or cut and paste names - you have to use multiple mouse clicks; the drop-down doesn't clear when enter is pressed - you have to press escape; the rendering position changes on the screen constantly and then there are frequent "Unable to assign resource errors" with details of "Correlation Error [GUID]". The process of assigning resources on a copied project of 100 tasks is a mind-numbing 30-40 minutes of work. It should be 0 minutes.

    The copy feature doesn't copy the full content of the project as far as we can tell. It copies the task names but, in our case anyway, fails to copy over the Group the project is assigned to so all the resources get stripped. Sigh ....

    Hi everyone!

    This is something we’re thinking about – but we’d love more feedback from you.

    Can you share specific scenarios that you need for resourcing? What information do you need to be successful? What actions do you take as a result of this information?

    Please share detailed scenarios for us to understand what you need, this will be very helpful to us as we improve Project!

    We also share the requirement to manage resources but would prefer to see Power BI components take on cross-project utilization, capacity and availability rather than adding this complexity to th base product.

    What makes P4W compelling is the quick adoption possible by non-PMs because its interface is so simple. We'd like to see it stay simple and not develop into a web-UI version of Project Professional.

    Resource Management is primarily a PM function and our experience is that built-in analysis is unlikely to provide all the flexibility needed anyway so let Power BI provide an out-of-the-box starting point and let us fine-tune from there. The Power BI package released recently is an awesome start.

    The biggest problem with Resource Management at the moment is that resources can only be assigned 100%. As soon as that problem is fixed, we will be giving this toolset at try (see also https://microsoftproject.uservoice.com/forums/914203-project-for-the-web/suggestions/38978338-project-for-the-web-tasks-effort-not-linked-to-d)

    Uless the import feature includes importing the task assignment, the feature will be of no more value than the current "copy project" function which requires users to repeat the painful process of assigning resources mouse click by mouse click.

    We would also like to see the 3 main types of task links. Including the +/- lag attribute would also be great but just having the 3 link types would be most of the value for us. Given that manual mode tasks are now supported (fixed duration) we could build in lags into that value as a solution in our scenarios.

    Hi everyone!

    We really appreciate your feedback about this topic.

    Everyone now has the ability to add attachments to tasks in Project for the web!

    We are also looking into bringing other Planner features into Project for the web. Please keep letting us know what you would like to see.

    You can now create local custom fields for your tasks!

    Under the “Add Column” button in the grid, you’ll find a new menu option to create a New Field. Click it!

    - Add dates, numbers, text, and flags to help you organize your work
    -Filter tasks by the contents of your fields
    -If you have limited screen real estate, edit the values for fields in the task details pane

    Hi David. We also had this requirement but were able to satisfy it creating a quick custom report using Power BI. There is a connector from Power BI to P4W so it is fairly easy to get at the data. The report format we create attached FYI.

    I don't know if this is an option for you but if it is, here is the link on how to set up the connection: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/project-for-the-web/connect-to-project-for-the-web-data-through-powerbi-desktop

    Hi all!

    Thank you for your feedback on this feature!

    Export Timeline to PDF is now available to all Project for the web users. You can export your timeline by going to the Timeline tab and clicking on the ‘…’ menu in the top right corner. This menu has an option to export your timeline.

    We would love to hear what you think about this new feature!

    Cheers,
    -M

    Scenario 1. I believe this is pretty much duplicated by another idea "Guest Access to Projects " at this link.

    https://microsoftproject.uservoice.com/forums/914203-project-for-the-web/suggestions/38925637-guest-access-to-projects

    Scenario 2. We'd like to be able to print project plans (the schedule view mostly) to a PDF. For us the RoadMap is not as critical. Saving off projects periodically to PDF is a workable baseline and plan versioning method for us. It would be particularly useful if the print functionality allowed you to filter for a bucket.

    Just chiming in that we have the same requirement. Our external users are clients we are working with on projects and these individuals do not have licenses on our Office365 tenant. Read-only access would be the default and in our use-cases, that is all they need. If they have to setup a Microsoft Account that would be OK but we'd be fine with an option to share via a link only and no login in some cases.

    This idea is largely a duplicate of this one.

    "M" - for additional information requirements I suggest reviewing the other link as well.

    Thanks

    Ominous silence from Microsoft. When MS marks an item "COMPLETED", even if the actual requirement was completely missed by the analysts working on it, does it mean it will never be revisited again and a new post is required?

    I'm also confirming the feature is not complete. The original request from Flo stated the business requirement well I think. It is very common for resources to be shared across projects. I am not sure why the requirement was interpreted as not linking effort and duration only when no resources are entered. In our experience project plans are a lot more effective when resources are specified :-) One of the things I really like about P4W is its simplicity and I don't want to bring in every feature MS Project has but not being able to partially assign resources is a show-stopper for us and I suspect many others. Maybe include an option to make a task "Fixed Duration"?

    Hello everyone!

    Thanks for your feedback! You can now customize and extend the Project app without purchasing additional Power Apps licenses, making it easier for your organization to tailor Project Plan 5, Project Plan 3, and Project Plan 1 to meet your business needs.
