  1. SharePoint compatability

    Dear Monali,

Microsoft has got to realize that we do not live in a Microsoft world, we need to send documents in different formats. Like in all things MS will eventually fix it and get it right, at least I hope so. But in the interim this issue continues to frustrate loyal MS customers like myself.

  4. Bring back the Document Information Panel

    Please bring back the Document Information Panel. Customers are finding it harder and the risk of error exacerbated by removal of this tool.

The workaround provided does not make the process easier at all.

  5. Make Project Server enterprise resource pool federation friendly and independent of Active Directory

    Project Server 2013 Enterprise Resource Pool synchronization people picker requires a local Active Directory connection to look up users and AD groups.
