January

A new quick look column can be added in the grid to see which tasks have attachments and notes at a glance. This reduces time trawling through the entire grid.

Relevant materials, such as files and links, can be attached to tasks. This gives context to a task and avoids confusion.

February

Stay on top of your tasks with a new email notification feature that lets you know when you have been assigned a new task.

March

Sharing your project just became much easier with the ability to export your timeline into PDF format to share with those outside of your project team.

April

Microsoft applications work best when they are working together. The project application now has greater integration with both Power Automate and Power Apps. You can now see charts, add resource, and create Power Automate flows for your project by viewing it though the Project app in Power Apps.

May

Find specific tasks more easily using the new filter feature. You can now filter by keywork or assignee to stay on top of your tasks.

July

You can now assign tasks to non-team members, given they are still within your organisation. This will make them a team member and give them access to the OneNote, files, and more so that they can ascertain context.
