Home: Task: Can Start?

Avatar

Level 10
I was trying to give my users a bit of a workaround so that they could tell when their task was ready to start. For our reports we use the task's "Can Start" field, and I am able to access this field and add it as a custom field in the Home task area. But... it won't work. Whhhhhhhhhy? What did I do wrong? :) -skye

You used the Home Task area �� I tried it in the Preview and I don't get a value either. I assume you're referring to the new Home area that replaced the My Work. Is that accurate?

Yep. In fact I did it in both areas: My Work and Home. It populates (true/false) in My Work and stays blank in Home. :( -skye

We haven't turned the Home feature on in our production environment, so I can test it there. But when I look in Preview, I'm finding the same results as you (it works in My Work, but not in Home).

I am interested to know if they address this for you prior to (fingers crossed) correcting the problem of not filtering on Can Start in the first place! Tracy Fox Project Manager / Workfront SysAdmin Sykes Assistance Services Corporation

Tier 1 support is verifying the error right now. I will report back on this thread if they agree it is a defect. At this point, a fix would definitely be prioritized the more tickets are attached to mine, so if this is of interest to you, you would benefit from referencing my ticket number and grouping your issue with mine. :) It's not a fabulous workaround or anything, because you cannot filter on it, but at least you would be able to see it. :) I don't know when "ready to start" will be released, so this would have to hold my users for at least the next 3-9 months. -skye
