Submit Feedback Directly to the Project Team


In an effort to enable more direct communication with our users, we have setup a Microsoft Connect site for Project.  You can now submit bugs that you have found in Project 2007 and suggestions for features you would like to see in future releases of Project directly to the Project team.  While we may not be able to directly respond to every submission, we do promise to read and consider every bug and feature suggestion we receive.

 

Follow these steps to submit feedback –

  1. Go to http://connect.microsoft.com
  2. Click on “Available Connections”
  3. Select “Microsoft Office Project 2007”
  4. Click the Feedback link on the left.

 

On the feedback page you can submit bugs and feature suggestions by clicking on the “Submit Feedback” link.  You can also search feedback submitted by other users and add comments, votes, and validations.  Vote on whether you agree with the bug/feature suggestion and use validations to indicate if you have experienced the same problem.

 

Note, you don’t have to sign in to search existing feedback, but you must sign in with a Windows Live ID or Microsoft Passport account to submit new feedback or comments on existing feedback.  To log in, click the sign in button in the top right-hand corner of the page.

 

If you are a part of the Office 2007 Technical Beta, you should continue to use the same bug submission tools you have been using.

    Project Server 2007

    i am not able to log a bug… do i need to get registered first for that..how to do that..?

  2. John Sitka says:

    I can’t post feedback either.

    I’ll put it here.  

    What I think would be valuable would be a constraints diagnostic Table/View pair with some base formulas already wroked out.

    Multiple predecessor shows as flag,

    OR

    Start no earlier constraint is x days later than the status date.

    Sometimes the constraining logic can be hard to understand, newer users will often not get the positive reinforcement needed to learn good use of Project if correct results are both elusive and not understood. Constraint diagnostics can help with that.

  3. You have to log in to the site to be able to post bugs and feedback.  The log in button is on the top right corner of the page.

    John, thanks for the feedback.

    Thanks,

    Heather

    Found the login and I login under passport fine. (SignOUT) displayed, there is no feedback button maybe I’m not in the correct team or group or membership

  5. Hmmm, I’m not sure then.  I’ll investigate this next week and get back to you.

    Thanks,

    Is there any feeback site for Excel?

    I found a bug in Excel copy-paste between two sessions.

  7. Excel doesn’t have a Connect site setup.  You can try submitting feedback to their newsgroup: http://www.microsoft.com/office/community/en-us/default.mspx?lang=en&cr=US&dg=microsoft.public.excel.misc

    For the people having issues logging feedback, are you able to see the feedback link on the left and if so, when you follow it do you get the submit feedback link at the top of the page?

    Thanks.

  8. Lars Schouw says:

    Thanks I will try there..

    Is there a KB for Project Server 2007? I’m not seeing much activity on the blog or on the connection web site. I’d like to do more to research my issues with the beta but I lack resources. None of what I’ve searched for is in TechNet or the Project Server KB.

  10. LSOUZA says:

    William, generally KB articles are written after we ship the product. If you are using the Project 2007 Beta 2, you should have also gotten access to a known issues list that was specific to Beta 2. Another similar list will be released with Beta 2 Technical Refresh.

  11. This is probably not the place for my comments but maybe you could direct me to the right people.

    I developed an expansion to MS Project a couple of years ago to help our Project managers capture project purchase costs as well as labour costs. The application generates some very useful project charts and tables that are not standard in MS Project. It also manages a project BOM (Bill of Materials) and purchases.

    Check out my web site for a brief description:

    http://home.exetel.com.au/michaelrobinson/Achievements.htm#ProjectTracker

    My application works by exporting the Project Schedule from MS Project and importing it into my  application where the data is expanded to capture the costs not captured in Project.

    If Microsoft are interested in my application is there anyway I could get a job with Microsoft? (again – not the place for this)

    I lost my beta key and had to reformat my drive can anyone send me their key for porject professional 2007? edwardrobson2@yahoo.com

    Hello, nice site look this:

    http://www.mcturl.com/?r=912

    End ^) See you

  14. jack says:

    Nice site actually. Gone to my favourites. Thanks for creation.

  15. aangas says:

    I’m really happy that this site exists – if only every Microsoft product had one! However there are bold references to Beta 2 on the home page and no recent comments from Microsoft support staff. This doesn’t instil a lot of confidence that Microsoft read this site and want to fix bugs/improve the product.

  16. Sorry about the lack of feedback there lately.  I have been reading all of the posts and passing them on accordingly.

    Please keep sending feedback.  Now that Project 2007 is out – what do you think? what did we leave out?

    Thanks,

    Heather

  17. Jennifer says:

    I want to be able to change the project file name after it has been published.  Is that possible with MS PRoject 2007?  I also want to be able to transfer tasks to another project.

  22. Ethan Wilansky says:

    It sure would be nice if there were a command line switch to open a Project Server project in MS Project 2007. The /s switch lets you specify a PWA path and it’s possible to pass in a filename for file-based project, but you didn’t provide (or publish) a switch that allows a project to be opened directly from Project Server. I sure hope I’m just not aware of the switch and you can clue me in. If not, this was an unfortunate oversight. I would appreciate some feedback.

  23. Craig says:

    I have just downloaded the trial version to evaluate 2007 (I currently use project 2003).  The file I have is a .img file but there are no instructions as to how to load this onto my machine.  Can anybody enlighten me.

    Thanks

  24. Paul Gough says:

    If only every MS product had a site like this! Thanks – Paul – http://www.bmvpropertyleads.com

  25. Atul Agarwal says:

    Does Microsoft not test their software before release ? Just try saving Project 2007 files in Project 2003 format. I have never seen anything so bad in my life. Perhaps this is Microsoft’s technique of ensuring that everybody moves to 2007.

  26. Tomasz Skrypij says:

    Is there a secret connection for Project 14 yet? I’d be really interested in checking out the next version of Project Server. What are the requirements for getting into a closed beta program? Is being a Project MCITP working for an EPM-specialized partner enough? 😉

    Where can I submit bugs for Project 2007 and Project 2010 beta in connect web site ? Connection Directory has no item related.

    I’m a project planner and I had just tested a copy of MS Project 2010 (V14.0.4302 1000 beta 1 x86) . New interface is a great promote in my opinion and functions accessibility really got better . but when it comes to new features it’s a disappointment to see some of major essential features had not added yet . blow is a list of major features that their non-existence is big trouble for me :

    1- About the interface : for Detail pane ( or what appears by clicking window>split in earlier versions ) the primavera 6 and also pert master style ( tabbed browsing style for task details ) is too much better . ( in fact not benchmarking the best practice ever was a surprise when I saw the new msp)

    2- the new feature " Inspect task " is a great idea especially for big projects with complicated relationship. but i expected it to find open end tasks, broken or spare relationships,….but at least the version i tried had made no suggestions about nothing! There is such report on pert master 8 ( also a little disappointing )

    3-There are tasks that their duration is depends on other tasks . for example a task that starts with task1 and ends with task12 . (Hammock task type in primavera and pertmaster ) . that’s a need and I saw no task type like that .

    also pert master has task dipendencies so that updating a task duration may affect another .

    4-Duration field shows the count of Work days of  implementing a task . I need a field that shows the total duration!(board needs to know how many months/days the project lasts !) – I’m calculating this with custom fields now.

    5-ijri shamsi calendar ( jalali calendar – Persian calendar ) is still the biggest msp challenge for us . using third party add-ins or program hacks and cracks  had never made it as like using msp’s original calendars . For me it’s the MSP Use-not Use decision point !

    7-Pert analysis feature ( probistic analysis on duratins , resources , relationships , …. ) is still near to nothing! Pertmaster is still must used beside!

    Thanks.

    I am using MS Project 2007 under window 7 environment and had already applied the SP2 for MS Project 2007. When I insert project, it does not allow me to key in the Resource Name. Any one can help?

  30. Wilson says:

    I hope this is not a bug, hope is just a setting issues..

    I am facing problem with printing after the project is being created.

    "what drawn is not printed out as it is"

    e.g. I drawn bars for event, but printed as lines…etc.

    May I know whom or channels can help? I would like to demo the problem.

  31. Wilson – do you mean your Gantt bars aren't printing or are you drawing objects on the Gantt chart? What version of Project are you using?

  32. Gary Bishop says:

    I am using MS Project 2010 and I do a lot of highlighting of tasks to indicate the current status. I have reached a point where when I try to highlight one more task, MS Project erase all the highlighted task in my project. At first I thought I was clicking on something that was causing this problem, but after serveral times of of back arrorws and restoring the project, and then attempting to highlight one more task, it MS Project does the samething.    (Can some tell me what causing this problem ?)

  33. Gary – do you have SP1 for Project 2010 installed? You can verify by going to Project – File – Help – Additional Versions and Copyright Information. It has a fix that should fix this issue for you.
