Custom Quarters to propagate to Resource Planner

Even though you set custom quarters in settings, they are only used for reporting not other tool functionality. This is quite apparent when you are trying to use the Resource Management capabilities in Workfront. The quarters option only uses standard quarters.

This decreases the usability of this part of Workfront.

In addition, the way that an Admin has to maintain the list of custom quarters seems extremely manual. It would be better for Workfront to calculate what the custom quarters are based on "When does your fiscal calendar begin". If I enter February 1 then all of the quarters should shift accordingly and in turn both the reports and the Resource Planner.

Please fix.

Love both thoughts in this - the custom quarters starting with one date and the porting of them to other functionality.

Any chance that custom quarters can be an option in resource planning ? i.e. set the custom quarters at a global level not a project level. Thank you

Really need an update here to see if this is on the Roadmap. Not being able to set custom quarters (even if we have to do this manually) does not allow us to do quarterly planning at all, which is the main purpose!!!
