There should be a way, in the WF settings for Slack, to filter out proof
comments so you are only receiving messages from Workfront and not the
proof tool. Additionally, you should be able to get notified of new
proofs (like document approvals) in Slack so you can click on the proof
and go directly to it. It would be even better if you could see a
preview or thumbnail of the first page of the proof. On this
notification, it would be good to see the title of the proof, the task
name it's attached...
There should be a way to track changes that are made on tasks in a task
report. It would be even better if you can make them specific. For
example, track how many times the due date was moved, check how many
times the tasks were reassigned, etc.
The Slack Workfront app only shows the message that was just posted by a
user. If that message is within a thread, you are not able to see any of
the previous messages in the thread from Slack, so often, you don't
understand the context of the message. It would be great if there was an
option to expand and see the threaded messages directly in Slack.
Please add a notification to project owners when someone on their
project inputs PTO that affects their tasks. Right now, you receive a
notification while you are scheduling tasks, but once a task is
scheduled on a project and someone inputs PTO, there is no way for the
project owner to know their timeline is being affected, unless you run a
report and check it daily. An email/Workfront notification would be
There should be an option in Setup under "New Task Defaults", "When I
create a new task, set the...." where you can set a time next to
"Today". Currently, if you have that option selected, when you create a
new task, it defaults to today and the time that you created the task.
This tends to mess up the flow of the rest of your tasks, because every
subsequent task now starts at that same time instead of at the beginning
of the day. If you could set a time next to the "Today" option, such as
When combining multiple files in a proof, it would be great to have the
option to section out or group files and add a section title, so that
when you are looking at the thumbnails in the left column, you can see
the individual slides being grouped together (like in PPT).
Please create a way for any Workfront user to be able to generate a
request/issue straight from Slack. right now, the "Post as update"
option is the only thing you can do on a message, but we would like to
be able to create new requests/issues from a message that is sent to us.
It would also be great if the Slack message link would follow that
request and that the command or functionality allowed you to fill out a
request form from Slack. We use Slack as our support channel/request
intake, so to...
Tie the percentage complete on tasks to the time logged on the task. For
example, if the planned hours on a task is 5 hours, and the assignee
logs 2.5 hours of time, the percentage complete should automatically
adjust to 50% complete rather than the person having to manually adjust
it. If there are 2 people on a task and one person marks their task as
"Done with my part" and the other person hasn't logged any time, the
task should automatically adjust to 50% since on of the two people have
