En él va actualizando las mejoras que se van poniendo a disposición de los clientes, las que están en estudio, en desarrollo…incluso las que se han cancelado. Si se va siguiendo, es posible estar al día de las novedades de Office 365 en general y de todos los productos relacionados con Project en particular.
A continuación, vamos a echar un vistazo al estado del roadmap para Project a fecha de publicación del post…mañana puede que ya haya algo nuevo en desarrollo…
Launched (Fully released updates that are now generally available for applicable customers)
Bulk updates in Project Online
Workflow creators in Project Online can bulk update project custom fields with a single service request. Previously, each custom field update required a separate service request. This results in much faster transition between multiple demand management phases.

Through effective use of demand management workflows in Project Online, you can decouple project site creation from project publishing. This results in Project advancing to the next stage in the workflow much faster.
