  • I would love this. Use Case: I want a request to automatically be assigned to a specific team. It's a 1 hour request, and it needs to be done within a day. Problem: Under the current configuration, the Planned Hours equal the Default Duration, so it's an 8 hour request and makes the assignee's workl...

  • It's down for our business too. Where's the status page now? It's no longer trust.workfront.com anymore, right?

    Agreed!This functionality exists in the current "Scheduling" tool, and it's the primary reason we're not moving over to the Workload Balancer tool.Our team members have Work licenses and self-manage their hours on multi-day days (ex. a 4 hour task over 2 days may have them put all or most hours on D...

  • I also usually have to have separate Issue and Task reports, although I use Assignment reports as much as possible. The problem with Assignment reports are there are a lot of fields that Workfront stores as different for Issues and Tasks (ex. Actual Completion Date). So if you want to do a repor...

  • Absolutely! I used the [Can Start] field. (There's a similar field called Pending Predecessors but it doesn't perfectly work with Parent & Child tasks) Once you've added the column, go to Advanced Options, and then add Column Rules to convert the field from text to icons.

  • If you manipulate the actual dates on your timeline (ex. change Task 2 to Planned Completion Date = 9/1) instead of just changing the Durations, Workfront will ignore the predecessors you put in. [The logic is "I know they said they wanted Task 2 to start after Task 1, but they also said they explic...
