After editing a report it doesn't run automatically

In the Classic experience, when you edit a report and click save it refreshes the report straight away using the new settings. In the NWE this doesn't happen. it just shows the old version of the report, leading the user to wonder if the changes were saved or not. You then have to manually refresh the report to see any changes. This might not seem like a big deal but some users spend a lot of time creating and updating reports....it slows down the process and when you're editing a lot of reports one after the other (I often open many reports in separate tabs and work through them one by one, closing the tabs when done) you might lose track of whether you had updated a report on not. We have created 2563 reports in Workfront so far, so when you get into this volume, any minor issues like this can have a bigger overall impact. In short, when looking at a report it should always display based on its latest configuration. Currently it doesn't do this. I tried raising this with Support (ticket 00172185), but they refused to accept it as a bug/issue and directed me to submit it via feedback. To me this seems like a bug as surely it wasn't designed this way. @Josh Boston - I'd apprecaite if you can check on whether this is by design or a bug. Thanks David Cornwell

I agree. New Experience shouldn't equal going backwards.

Agreed. I wonder what the reasoning is behind their decision, but having the reports update automatically is a big time-saver. Maddy Martin

Hi David, This was not an intended design and we already have a fix planned to allow reports to auto update after an edit. Josh Boston Workfront
