Thanks for the opportunity... :)https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000560194-Ability-to-change-the-routing-Pa... Change the routing/"Path" (located in Issue Details tab / Overview Sub-tab) of a submitted request - it happens when the Requestor incorrectly selects it from the get-go so it does not appear in the correct team(s) queue. The Queue Topic can be edited, so it would be great if it would automatically change the Path associated or simply have the ability to change it manually. https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115007314408-Visibility-of-Menu-and-Project-S... Project summary/header area to stay put at the top when scrolling down the list of tasks. Most of our projects have so many tasks that when you scroll down the page, you lose sight of which project you're in... especially if you're toggling between a few to compare progress.

This is great, I will check out all of the above ideas as well. Below are the biggest hitters from my org: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000339294-More-Robust-Overdue-Automatic-Notifications-">More Robust Overdue "Automatic Notifications" There's currently no logic in place that can be used to set when task overdue reminders get sent out. As a result, sometimes users get tasks notifying them that a task of theirs is overdue...even when the predecessor tasks to theirs are not complete. This is not ideal for us. We'd like to see more options that can be set around these notifications. "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006089107-Project-Auto-Assignment-Based-on-Company-Role">Project Auto-Assignment Based on Company/Role We would like to have certain users auto-assigned to tasks within a project based upon what role is supposed to be fulfilling that task, and for which company that project is being fulfilled for. For example, Jane Doe is always the Art Director working on projects for Corporation ABC; when a project is opened up for Corporation ABC, we'd like Jane Doe to be auto-assigned to all tasks that are for the Job Role Art Director in the template. Making these assignments is a major time-sink for our Project Managers. "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115007418928-ProofHQ-Global-Edits">ProofHQ Global Edits We would like the ability to provide "global edits" to a proof, or the ability to select a comment and 'apply all' to all versions inside of a proof. When you have 20-30 different versions of a proof, making the same comment to them all is tedious; however, it's necessary as the design staff may otherwise forget the comment by the time they get to the 30th version. Global edits/comments would help fix this. Mike Clark Healthgrades

"https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115004139993-Archive-Programs-Portfolios-Etc-">ARCHIVE PROGRAMS, PORTFOLIOS, ETC. - It would be great if there was a way to archive old programs and portfolios that we are not currently using/doing business with. It would really help keep our system clean and accurate. We have so many old programs that it becomes messy. For example, we have "2015 incremental", "2015 retainer", "2015 investments", etc under one single portfolio. We no longer use the 2015 programs since we are in 2017 now. We still want to be able to see the history of these programs and clients and projects, just want a way to archive them or deactivate them. Would also be nice to have the ability to reactivate them if we need to use them again. Similar to how you can deactivate and reactivate an employee. Would be nice for Admin users to have the ability to "clean up" and audit our information in Workfront. "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115005737507-Restore-Hour-Entries-back-to-Original-Hour-Type-when-Restoring-Tasks">RESTORE HOUR ENTRIES BACK TO ORIGINAL HOUR TYPE WHEN RESTORING TASKS - We love the new recycle/restore functionality, but it would be great to have the ability to restore the hour type back to it's original. When you delete a task and restore the task, any time logged to that specific task moves to "project time" instead of back on the restored task that it was originally logged to. It's important for us to see how much time is logged to each individual task and for reporting purposes (planned vs actuals). Thanks for the opportunity!

Here's another one that could be handy... Allow users to be tagged on updates after writing/add someone to a thread after it has been submitted: https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115001245287-Allow-Users-to-be-Tagged-on-Upda... This feature would be helpful to us - we're a pretty small group that is spread pretty thin so we're already thinking about the next task. Yes, you can delete the comment and then re-post it adding the folks you missed, but the problem with that is a) duplication and b) the original path is gone if clicked from the initial notification. I liken it to a "reply all - including so-and-so" move. Giselle Quintero Cross Country Home Services0690z000007ZiSVAA0.png

Trying to solve one of our biggest process gaps in WF: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000532374-Subscription-for-documents" Subscription for documents and/or "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006886148-New-A-document-approval-request-is-completed-on-a-project-I-own-" Notification to project owner when a document approval occurs Our designers are the ones adding documents and adding in the approver, which leaves the PM completely in the dark when an approval happens since they are neither document owner or the one who added the approver. This one seems to have come up in other community discussions lately so maybe there's more interest now: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006885108-Adjusting-planned-dates-in-an-iteration" Adjusting planned dates in an iteration For those of you who are interested in piloting Agile , this could also be of benefit for you as it would allow you to merge agile and waterfall working styles, which currently cannot really be properly accommodated. Some from my colleague @Polly Co : Formatted docket numbers are pretty industry standard and really should be supported by Workfront now that they are focusing on creative clients: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115001218447-autonumber-field-docket-numbers" Autonumber field for docket (project) numbers This one's at 32 votes! Help us out, we're so close to 45: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115001218827-Ability-to-add-fields-on-Project-screen-space" title="Ability to add fields on project screen space" Ability to add fields on project screen space -- so that we can add quick-reference information at-a-glance, for example, a list of the project team members (or at least the sponsor) so designers don't have to click to other tabs to know who to tag in an update or as an approver. Some way for WF to notify someone when the person they tagged are on vacation/OOO, basically to avoid unnecessarily lost/wasted time : "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006955748-Bounce-back-if-update-is-made-to-user-with-PTO" Bounce back if update is made to a user with PTO/OOO Many of our clients are infrequent users. As much as we reinforce the need to tag, they don't always remember... once again leading to unnecessary lost/wasted time : "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006955648-Prevent-an-update-thread-starter-from-sending-if-no-one-is-tagged" title="Prevent an update thread starter from sending if no one is tagged">Prevent an update thread starter from sending if no one is tagged And finally, we like our dashboards: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115001890928-Allow-more-visible-tabs-on-Project-screen" Allow more visible tabs on project screen Barbara Sedlack BMO Financial Group

Here are a few ideas our agency has submitted: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115004508413-Resource-Scheduling-Filter-for-Available-Resources-Portfolio-Project-Status" Resource Scheduling: Ability to filter by available resources The current resource scheduling tool makes it very hard to see who is available to do the work since all unassigned tasks are at the top, and then people who can work on the tasks are further down. I have to constantly scroll to compare the unassigned task dates and hours to the resource availability/capacity. It would be great to be able to filter by available resources, or even specific users because I also want to see how close to capacity they may possibly be. If they're close to capacity, I can then see what's on their plate and figure out how to move stuff around if there are clients/projects/deliverables that are higher priority than others. "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000703574-Add-Option-to-Turn-Off-Proof-Comment-Notifications" Option to Turn Off Proof Comments at the Task Level Currently, if someone comments on a proof, other users on the task will receive a proof comment notification via Workfront and email, if email notifications are turned on. This is very annoying for a user. For example, if 20 comments are left on the proof, the other user will receive 20 emails. The only way to not receive this notification is to turn off updates/comments in the user settings; there is not something directly related to proof comments/updates. "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115004390633-Available-Hours-Report">Available Hours Report I'd like the ability to pull an Available Hours report by month so that I can see how many hours each team has available taking into account time off that they've entered in the system. "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000354974-Planned-Hours-Allocation-on-Simple-Tasks">Planned Hours View on Simple Tasks When Multiple Users are Assigned If there are 2+ users assigned to a single task, and the task is set to simple with a different allocation of hours between the resources (example below), there is no way to see how many hours are allocated to one person vs. the other if I am the resource working on the task. I suggest adding a feature so that each resource can clearly see their allocated time. Jennifer Tanabe Director, Project Management Vertical Measures
