Good morning! Have some new business requirements that are just starting
to get figured out and wanted to start investigating some workflow
options between Workfront and Bynder; essentially when a project is
complete we'd want to publish the finalized documents to the DAM. Unlike
the Workfront connector that interprets the custom fields it finds in
the service and allows us to map values to those fields, the Bynder
connector doesn't seem to know what taxonomy has been implemented in the
I've been forcing myself to explore Kanban more, hoping to develop a
deep enough understanding to recommend the process to a few of my teams.
The #1 issue that prevents me from pulling the trigger is how things get
stack ranked. These teams handle tasks and issues. Both, maintain two
separate 'order' values. I'm actually fine with a task order #1 and an
issue order #1; I don't care to pull both into a single backlog and
re-order - though that would make a little more sense to me as an agile
I have a business process that operates against 2 queues; Forms
Production and Forms Production Administration. The first is used to
request Create / Edit operations and the second is used between two
teams to manage inventory levels or manipulate a library of content.
Would be convenient to have that business process under a single Queue;
sharing the Create / Edit topics with all requesters and the other, more
admin-y topics only being shared with workers.
This would be so helpful. I have a 6-7 member team of project managers
that each have created 5 distinct project templates for the sole purpose
of having the Project Manager tasks explicitly assigned to themselves.
When process changes occur, we then have to crack open 30-35 project
templates and make updates. Would be fantastic to just have 5 templates
to manage, with the Project Manager tasks getting auto-assigned to the
Project Owner equivalent.
Was just discussing this capability with a new user in our Forms
Production process. Our project templates have generalized tasks
assigned to analysts; who 'know the process'. That is, unless they're a
new hire. My proposed workaround was to add a job aid as a document
(maybe a macro enabled Word doc or a OneNote file) to the project
template. That job aid would get copied down to each instance of a new
project - providing the analyst the detailed description of the work to
perform. The elegance...
I'm pretty sure the answer is No, but have to ask it anyway. Is there a
way to share a list of objects (eg. projects) with the user selected
filter/view/group applied without having to export or create a report? I
have a user group that performs a bi-weekly project review and they want
to direct meeting participants to the same filters/views/groups they use
during the meeting. Something like a bi-weekly report, with a link to
the 'On Hold' projects, a link to the projects by division, etc. They'...
Happy to share! That List.Generate function is a weird one. This isn't
what I started with, but I believe it is the optimized state. In the
event you can't get that to work, you could use another function to get
the page requirements that calls the API to learn how many rows of the
entity there are (eg. /api/v12.0/task/count). Then do some M work to
create a list of index/offsets by dividing the count by 2000 and
rounding the result up to the nearest whole number and adding a custom
column that ...
Had to look through my youtube history to recall the video that I found
most helpful.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhr4w5G8bRA Feeling
industrious....? Below are two M queries that handle the heavy lifting
in Power BI. My GetTasks

Could it, probably. I've used fusion for a few bulk export/import
things. That said, you don't have to put Fusion or SQL in the middle. I
have a Power BI model that pulls in 5 years worth of projects, tasks,
issues, etc direct from Workfront's API using incremental refresh. Took
a little fiddling, but if your comfortable in Power Query you can
traverse all the rows of tasks you have in a single query, and build
visuals against that.. All it takes is a Web connector in Power BI and
some clever M ...
