  • Hi, Malcolm. Unfortunately, I think Workfront only allows you to build collections for the object on which the report is based. I.e., if it's a task report, you can build only task-based collections. If it's a project report, you can build only project-based collections. If anyone has had success bu...

  • We are a translation services provider, so we our primary use for Workfront is the daily management of translation requests from our customers. We use in-house-built integrations to load word counts into projects and to create POs for our individual translation vendors. Each linguistic step (transla...

  • We grappled with this to some extent when we migrated to Workfront, as well. There was pushback from some stakeholders because our old project numbering scheme carried additional information about the project, rather than simply acting as a unique identifier. Before the transition, we spec'd out whi...

  • Hi, all. My suspicion is that Workfront doesn't look at the Project Start Date at all when determining the project condition. Rather, it looks at the task durations, % complete, planned completion dates, predecessors, etc., and calculates the project condition--regardless of whether the Start Date i...

    Wish I could upvote this 20 more times. I can't believe they don't provide this functionality already.

    The date-based wildcards that are currently available are ‚Äòq’, ‚Äòh’, ‚Äòd’, ‚Äòw’, ‚Äòm’, and ‚Äòy’ for calendar quarter, hour, day, week, month, year respectively. “d” refers to calendar day. We have a number of reports that filter for items created in the last 24 hours; unfortunately, we need a...

  • FYI, we have been experiencing your issues #2 and #3 as well. (We don't convert issues to projects, so we wouldn't see this.) I logged a ticket a week ago, and we had a screen share with one of the level 2 technicians. According to the assigned HelpDesk contact, this has been escalated to Developmen...

  • Hi, Steve. Calculated fields can only access fields that are on the same object that your custom form is on. So in your case, you can access only Issue-based fields for calculation. A list of your existing Programs is not likely to be available, in any case, unless you maintain that in a custom fiel...

  • Users with the Review license DO have rights to edit Issues, so I don't think it's licensing problem. It's likely that she can't edit the Issue you've passed to her because the status is "Pending Approval". When an Issue is "Pending Approval" you can't do anything but "Accept" or "Reject" it. A bett...

  • Great discussion thread! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one pulling my hair out over report organization. I support about 95% of our company's reporting requests, so I have amassed several hundred reports over the years, many of which were created on an ad hoc basis and are highly duplicative. I'v...
