  • Hi, Skye. Yes, if you have Workfront auto-sending you a report, it will come to you even if it contains no data. I actually consider this a good thing: many of my auto-generated reports are are of the auditing variety, and if they contain results that means I have to go in and fix something. If the ...

  • While Kelly's approach SHOULD work in theory, in reality it doesn't. I remember speaking to the "experts" at LEAP several years ago, and they told me the only way to report on the contents of Update Feeds is through the API (i.e., via a custom app). So that's what we've done in our company--in our c...

  • We have always housed and tracked our costs using Job Roles rather than Users. It's somewhat less precise but enables our project managers to track costs while shielding individual salaries. As long as you're willing to change all of your tasks' Cost Type from "User Hourly" to "Role Hourly," here's ...

    Totally agree. It's hard to believe this hasn't been fixed already.

    We could definitely use this. When we log an Issue on a project, it goes through various stages--root cause analysis, corrective action plan development, etc.--and each stage requires that a new custom data field be filled in. We'd like to prevent users from changing the Issue status until the req...

    We use Workfront to distribute project and task reports to our project managers. However, it currently isn't possible to build a single report that emails a report containing Project Manager A's projects to Project Manager A, a report containing Project Manager B's projects to Project Manager B, an...

    Completely agree. I've wanted to be able to modify the content of the notifications for Task and Issue Assignments since we started with Workfront. Was so excited to discover the Email Template functionality, and so disappointed to find it's limited to Reminder Notifications, which is a feature we...

  • Here's my process for moving "Project Time" back to "Task Time": - Reopen the timesheet in question - Create a new task in the project to "house" the hours, or else determine whether an existing task in the project can serve the purpose (this can sometimes be a tricky undertaking) - Add the task to ...

  • We have tracked all our time in Workfront since we rolled it out (over 8 years ago now). We track only Task Time, along with Sick/Vacation/Holiday hours. Most users use a timesheet profile that must be approved by their supervisor after submission. We are somewhat unusual in that we are paid twice a...

  • We were looking to report on System Updates a couple of years ago, and I actually discussed it with the technical folks at LEAP that year. They told me it could only be done via the API. So, we built a custom app that sends a report weekly to the administrator. As far as I know, that is still the on...
