Re: Milestone view - Customization & flexibility - Workfront 27-11-2018
I would definitely like to see Workfront allow for flexibility in what is presented in the Milestone view. It is valuable but very limiting in how the data is presented. We simply want to add the project 'status' to the view which seems like it would naturally already be included but I have no way to provide that information.

Re: Minneapolis Fall 2018 User Group Meeting Topics - Workfront 11-07-2018
Hi Tina - I would be interested to learn from others how they are finding success in using the new Resource Budgeting functionality that is replacing the legacy resource estimate. We are not having success and struggling to determine how the functionality will help us without introducing A LOT of extra work for our teams. In addition, if there are MPLS teams out there that have found a good way to use the new Resource Planning functionality, I'd love to hear about that. For us, we haven't been a...

Re: Allocation on Completed tasks - Workfront 08-05-2018
PMs want both; the ability to see what was originally planned and what actually happened. Unfortunately we haven't had success in using baselines to 'snap the line' on what was originally planned. We instruct PMs to update their plans to have a more realistic ongoing view of what's going on with their projects. The concern here is about allocated time to work that is completed. Leads/PMs do not want to see people with planned allocated to them on tasks that are complete since it is presumed the ...

Allocation on Completed tasks - Workfront 06-04-2018
Currently when a planned completion date is later than the actual completion date, the demand allocation holds on to the planned completion date. The problem this causes is showing demand allocation to resources on work that is already complete. This may show a resource over allocated when in fact they have availability. To avoid 'not real' allocations, we've asked our PMs to update their planned completion dates on tasks that are completed prior to the planned completion date. As you can imagin...

Tasks marked Complete - Workfront 29-03-2018
When a task is marked complete prior to the planned completion date, the future allocation of work should stop at the actual completion date. This will better reflect availability of resource who complete work earlier than planned AND save the PM time of not having to adjust the planned completion date to match actual completion date so their demand is accurate.

Add 'start date' for individuals that will be starting in a the future - Workfront 23-01-2018
Similar to a planned activation date, it would be nice to have a planned start date on users. This would allow us to input resources we know will be added to our teams in the future and show up in capacity planning reports.

Move 'Save for Later' to top of timesheet UI - Workfront 11-08-2017
We use monthly timesheets and our resources tend to have a lot of tasks assigned to them during the month. Their timesheet tasks list gets long and they have to remember and take time to scroll to the bottom each time they log time on their timesheet. Moving the option to 'Save for Later' to the title area make this option clearly visible and convenient to use. Thanks

Program Management - Workfront 25-05-2017
Currently there is limited functionality for Programs. It seems they are simply a container for a group of projects. It would be helpful to increase the capabilities to allow for Master & Child programs for larger initiatives spanning multiple years/portfolio's/etc

Re: Filter, View and Grouping in Timesheets - Workfront 24-05-2017
The users ability to filter would be highly beneficial for managing the number of tasks assigned during a period. When tasks are complete, they could stay on a timesheet for a full month which is just noise to them. At minimum, allow for the administrators to customize the timesheet views/features to meet the needs of our organization.
