Re: validation rules on fields - any solutions? - Workfront 10-01-2020
Hi Mavis, We also faced this problem - what I ended up doing is created calculated fields with the if then else logic in them returning cleanup text if there was a problem. eg: CDQ1: IF(LEN(Commentary Exec Summary)<=10,'Commentary must be longer than 10 characters','') I found it useful also to have a calculated field that showed the number of tests that failed as well so that in the report below I can quickly filter to the rows to show. And then I created a report that concatenates all the comm...

Re: It's preview time! The 2019.4 Product Release is now in preview - Workfront 18-11-2019
Hi, What you can do while waiting for the patch is on the views that are shared set conditional formatting to turn it bold if % complete greater than 0% which then makes it readable. If you are sharing your views on layout templates then can roll this out quickly to your user group. Andrew Parsons

Review users able to review expenses / legacy resource estimates - Workfront 21-08-2019
I am currently unable to grant permission for review users to be able to view expenses and legacy resource estimates that have been added to a project. I appreciate that a review user should not be able to edit these - but they should be able to view them rather than just seeing a blank screen.

Quick filter on Issues - Workfront 31-07-2019
You have the quick filter capability on projects and tasks - have the same functionality available on the issues tab so that we can quickly filter based on an entered value

Re: 19.3 Custom Conditions - Workfront 17-07-2019
Couldn't agree more - we really need to be able to do this by group in the same way as status is managed as we have separate groups operating on the instance who all have slightly different needs. Understand that we would still need to say what each new condition is equivalent to so that we Workfront knows how to handle them. Have raised an idea for this so that it is captured: https://experience.workfront.com/s/idea/0870z0000004Vu3AAE/detail Hopefully this is on the roadmap already and imminent...

Condition configurable by group - Workfront 17-07-2019
The changes you have made to allow us to globally change the condition names away from "At risk" / "In Trouble" are great but need to be able to define these by group in the same way that statuses are defined so that different groups can control what conditions they are using (eg Red, Yellow, Green or Late, At risk, On track).

Allow Reset User for specific Objects only - Workfront 08-07-2019
When a user accidentally uses a corrupt view / grouping (eg we can't rid of legacy gantt off the subtasks view list) they get presented with a "oops contact workfriont to sort this out" error message. Help desk inform us the only way to clear this is to do a /resetUser for a particular user. The problem with this is that it gets rid of custom tabs / forgets the defaults for a user on all objects. Ideally you would be able to specify just the object you wanted to reset (eg Task or Optask) - eithe...

Allow custom form to be added to job roles - Workfront 21-06-2019
We have quite a few fields classifying the job roles into a hierarchy (identifying skills / business area etc) and currently have to maintain data about the roles in our data warehouse. If we were able to attach custom forms to job roles then we would be able to add these fields which could then be used in reporting in the tool.

Re: Deactivate / Hide Job Roles that are no longer used - Workfront 21-06-2019
Agree completely - just need an isactive flag on the role that would prevent it appearing when users were selecting a role going forwards - would prevent having to rename them xxArchive.... and then do a check outside to make sure people are using the right job roles

Unique field - Workfront 17-06-2019
When creating a single line text custom field I want the ability to say that the value should be unique and WF flag up an error if a duplicate value (ie one already in the system for my instance) is entered. Probably would have to add to the "copy to" dialog boxes so that user could fix when duplicating. Would save having to do all the uniqueness tests outside using API and reporting
