  • Recently I was asked to develop a report for project assigned to specific business division. I already had an all Projects Report created so I made a copy of that and customized it so that a prompt opened so that a specific company division could be entered. The problem was that the original all pro...

  • The biggest problem we had in our company was that the three departments in our organization all had different ways of doing project management. Most project owners were never formally trained as project managers, so they lacked the perspective of keeping a plan on time, on budget, and tasks assigne...

  • I think it has always been set up this way. When I created a 10 question risk score card a few years ago, it set up my questions and gave 3-5 single choice answers with a score 1-3 or 1-5 points as a rating scale. I put the formula in a separate field and then wrote the formula to look at the answer...

  • Jill, I can't read the clip you added to the message you posted and i can't seem to enlarge it. 1. Check to see if the resource working on this task has set the commit date to two weeks ahead of your planned completion date. The commit date changes the projected completion date to match it. 2 Take a...

  • Before I deactivate a user who has left the company, I log in as them and note any reports/dashboards that they created and did not share with others. I delete those unshared reports. In this way, I can do incremental cleanup as we only turn over 1 or 2 Workfront users per quarter on average. Chris ...

  • Yes, this worked just fine. I used the project in the Sandbox to change the WF global setting from Duration to planned hours. Then I had to be sure the project had correct planned hours versus actual hours for the tasks that are not 100% completed. We did the export to MS-Project and it came our cor...

  • Vic, Thank you for this suggestion. I am going to experiment in our sandbox to see if adjusting these settings work. Presently our Workfront production global project setting is to create % complete based on duration and not Act vs. Planned hours for tasks. I'll let you know how this works out. Chr...

  • Here at Fujifilm our USA company uses Workfront for all IT projects. Our parent company in Japan, however, uses MS-Project. There is an ongoing USA project they are very interested in and have requested we send them the updated project plans in MS-Project format. Our Parent company stakeholders do n...

    Yes, I have the same problem here. I have many, many reports that I now have to revise as a result of this name change. Worst still, the WF business case summary (upper right section for PDF) calls the old field "Legacy Budgeted Cost" but the field name pointing to the discontinued data fields is c...

  • We use a Dashboard that we created that consists of 5 reports. Each report uses Workfront fields and fields developed from custom forms attached to each project. These dashboards are converted to PDF files and emailed to external customers and to the project sponsor and key stakeholders and team and...
