Hi! I am a product manager here at Workfront. We are looking at ways to surface historical data and we want to make sure that it is relevant and helpful to regular plan users. We are looking to help users that manage multiple projects at a time, participate in retrospectives, or present to executive stakeholders. Please take a few minutes (1-2) and fill this survey out. It will influence the product roadmap and hopefully make it helpful for you! Feel free to share it with other users in your organization. Looking to get responses over the next few days (January 17th - January 23rd) "https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfB3prq9vzSovQpK9NwE4coSrbpv2V8aYlWDXfb4_Ph_hFoMw/viewform?usp=sf_link">Survey Link Thanks!

Good to see some focus on this Joel! I have submitted some feedback and asked some colleagues from our PMO and resource management teams to do so as well. Regards, David Cornwell

Hi, Workfront has been a great tool for seeing the latest near-real-time information. However, we've had to come up with creative ways to store, extract, and report on trends and performance. We've even considered developing a data warehouse where event driven data is captured and displayed in separate web pages linked to Workfront dashboards. This has been a goal for two years but we never have enough free resources to make it a reality. We've struggled to capture changes to budget in project baseline. We've come up with creative work arounds with custom fields that are manually updated. I have attached images of two reports based on time sheet data that DOES contain historical data our PMO and management find useful. Look forward to a solution.

Hi Joel, One other comment....please ensure that custom data is well integrated into your solution (filters, groupings, data colours etc). This is make or break for us as we heavily use custom data. e.g. We're still waiting for custom data filters in the Scheduler....we can't use it until this is delivered and it's now been around 2 years since the tool was launched I reckon.
