Convert Task to Project along with existing cross-project dependency by keeping the original task by just one click

Avatar

Level 6

09-10-2018

Use case:

There is an option in workfront for converting a task to a project as mentioned in below article

https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/articles/216743408-Converting-a-Task-To-a-Project-

But when performing these steps on a task, we will still need to create a dependent relationship on a duplicate task to track dependencies for the project we just created.

Our current workflow will be:
1. Duplicate task that will be converted to projects (because Workfront deletes the converted task)
2. Convert duplicated event to a project
3. Create a cross project dependency for the original task to the newly created project

The feature request would collapse these steps to simply selecting the original task and "Create Project w/ Dependency" and not delete the original task.

Benefit:

The feature request would allow us to replace most of the steps listed to simply right clicking on the task and create a project that already includes the cross-project dependency.
