Dear Team,

 

I understand there is a limitation of 500 tasks in Project for the web, any release plans to overcome this limitation?

 

Project for the web limits and boundaries - Project for the web | Microsoft Docs

Is there a place to request features?

 

Color coding the tasks would be good. (based on assignee, label, etc)
