I want the ability to hide the 'new task' button. We do not want tasks added that are not part of a project.

I agree, the New Task button is not useful and we discourage users from creating personal tasks in Workfront. Thanks for submitting Maria.

We like our users to have the ability to add personal tasks so I agree that making it an option to hide the button is a good idea.

It should simply be a layout option for the admin where they control whether the New Task button appears or not. All organizations run differently. It may come down to even wanting some users to have this in your organization and others not to have it. If it could be controlled by the layout, that would be great.

I like the add new task feature but restrict it by being required to link it to a project.

Personal tasks does not allocate anytime, also without a special report you cannot see the list of unique work that user is being asked to do.

Our department set up misc. task projects for each user where they can add the misc. tasks, others can to, that are not associated to a project, but people are still adding personal tasks not linked to anything and this is just messy.

In addition to the hiding functionality it would be great to be able to set only create new tasks on projects.

Rather than hide, please give admins the ability to kill this feature system wide. It is beyond me why a feature would be FORCED in the system that makes work items that can collect logged hours that get excluded form hours reporting by default. We loose so much project time to these tasks, that should be attributed to specific project efforts, even given the amount of email blasts and training we try to do.


Furthermore, we are at risk of under reporting time on development projects that we get tax credit for... thus costing us $$.


Please give us the option to disable this feature!
