UI: Task Indentation

The alignment of tasks with subtasks has always been off in Workfront and it makes it hard to see the work breakdown structure.

Its hard to see the parent-child relationship. Here's a video with audio showing you the before-and-after: http://screencast.com/t/tecYEdvPYm

This is a UI-only change to the CSS. See below.

CHANGE

.indentable-table [collapselevel='0'].collapsible [valuefield=name] img.parent { left: 4px; }
.indentable-table .collapsible td[valuefield=name] img.parent { left: 5px; }
.indentable-table .collapsible td[valuefield=name] .inner-cell { margin-left: 18px; }

TO

.indentable-table [collapselevel='0'].collapsible [valuefield=name] img.parent { }
.indentable-table .collapsible td[valuefield=name] img.parent { left: -10px; }
.indentable-table .collapsible td[valuefield=name] .inner-cell { margin-left: 0px; }

Hey, Dustin,

You can go to https://<your domain>.preview.workfront.com and login with your production credentials. You can also find the link in Setup > System > Preferences > Test Environments section.

Thanks!

I tested this out....the auto indenting is still somewhat buggy... if you select the last child task of a group and try to "drag/drop" it out of the group, but where it still is relatively the same line number, it does not out-dent a level. It works the reverse...if you grab a task and try to add it to be the last child in the grouping just above it. The auto-indenting and creating child tasks has always been a little buggy and problematic for our PMs. It they attempt to just move a task and however too long, it makes it a child and messes up their tasks. I'd really like to see "auto-child" portion of the move process dropped from the tool or at least have a way at an enterprise level to just turn it off. It is better than it has been in the past, but still causes problems for our PMs.

On another note, I'd like to see the indentation you see on the screen also export to excel and PDF.

Hey, all,

With the latest Task list changes, we've improved the indentation UI. Now the sibling task names appear on the same level, instead of aligning with the hierarchy arrows. I'm marking this as Delivered.

Thanks!
