  • Yep, I noticed that too and have a ticket tied to the main one. The kanban board has been a little buggy in 2020, first with issues linking to "undefined" URLs, then this thing with the cut off first letter and columns that go on for daaaaays. Darren Harper

  • It definitely works better when you have many assets that do the same role for the same project. We have only two designers and an art director, so you pretty much know who is going to be doing what for any given request. But I have the same feedback for the resource planner tool, since it's overkil...

  • Yes, this has been and still is a problem with Workfront that we've struggled with in the past. There is a feature request to be able to disable queue topics instead of delete them, but there's been no progress on it yet. My suggestion would be to create a calculated field that captures the queue to...

  • Honestly, because marketing is deadline-based work, I would recommend a kanban approach over an agile one. They are very similar, except you don't get stuck in the never-ending argument of "we've already picked what we have in our sprint for the week." That just won't fly when you have a print ad du...

  • The short answer is "no." Personally, I think linking tasks/requests or showing subtasks would be a great addition for kanban. Workfront already has the ability to create predecessors for tasks in projects, they just need a graphical way to do this on the fly on a kanban/agile board. As for passing ...

  • When you're talking about handing things off to different groups of people, I think maybe the best thing to do is to create an ad hoc team that is specific to certain types of projects. You would create a kanban board that allows for people of all parts of those projects to be involved rather than y...

  • To my knowledge, there's not a good way to do this today. I've attempted to make subtasks in the main tasks already on agile/kanban boards, but those subtasks are not represented when looking at the overall picture. The ideal would be to do something like Pivotal Tracker where you can make, basicall...

  • If those are dependencies outside of your control, you could create a new status and column for roadblocks. My team works with IT developers all the time, and that is something I can't get around. In that situation, I have a status called "in development" so that clients know the work is currently o...

  • We have also dabbled in using agile for creative teams, but it can be difficult. We have so many requests that have very specific deadlines, and they often overlap with work we're already holding in our queue. I've found that kanban is better for creative because your backlog is more flexible, but i...

  • I'm using the Kanban board for our development flow, but there are a few things I have issues with before being able to go all in with the agile approach: Can't see subtasks in the story cards, which makes it hard to understand the complexity of each card without diving deeper in The colors pe...
