Many features requested through Microsoft UserVoice appear on the Microsoft 365 Public Roadmap when they are in development, rolling out, or being launched. If you follow UserVoice, submit suggestions for new capabilities, continue to vote on other users’ feature requests, or track which submissions receive the most votes.  If you don’t follow this forum, come join and help us make Project better.

Feedback on existing features is also welcomed! If you have feedback, submit it by using the ‘Feedback’ button in Project for the web. Make sure to include your email so we can contact you directly with any follow up questions or comments. Your comments on our blog posts are also monitored, so let us know what you think about this or other articles.

Your feedback is especially important now, as we look back on all we’ve done in 2020 and look forward to what we can build in 2021. Your feedback is so important to help us decide what we do moving forward.


New Features:

  • Export to Excel: Starting this month, you can export your project grid into an Excel spreadsheet. Share information with colleagues and analyze Project data using the power of Excel. This feature should be available to everyone now!
  • Quick Look Column: A new column in the grid will allow you to see more information about your tasks without opening task details. This will start being available in December!
  • Customization in Project: Now, all users with a Project for the web license can customize their app without the need to purchase an additional Power Apps license. Check out our blog post on this to learn more.


Upcoming Features:

  • Task Attachments: Link your tasks to the relevant documents! Upload a file directly from your computer or link your tasks to documents stored in SharePoint. Working online? Add a link as an attachment so teammates can view relevant information directly from your project.
  • Email Notifications: Coming soon, configure custom notifications to send you an email every time something important happens in your projects.


Answers to top questions:

Q: Is the ability to add Projects to private channels in Teams on the roadmap?

A: There are no present plans to complete this work. However, we would love to hear from you about how this impacts your workflow so we can understand your needs in Teams.


Q: Are there license requirements to use the Project & Roadmap apps in Teams?

A: Users with an active Project subscription (Project Plan 1, Project Plan 3, or Project Plan 5) can create and edit projects. A Project Plan 3 or Project Plan 5 subscription users can create or edit roadmaps. All Office 365 users should be able to view Projects/Roadmaps shared within Teams in a read-only mode.
