This is currently a feature under consideration in the "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004178467-Using-the-Idea-Exchange">Idea Exchange for Parent and Sub projects though which has garnered a lot of support. I've included a link for this below in case you would like to add your support to this. Any added support helps!

I apologize in advance if any of these are duplicates already logged in the IdEx (and if you know this to be the case, pls let me know so I can help crowdsource/upvote). I spent the bulk of today searching through 100s of ideas logged and trying to search for similar to these below - but admittedly, finally gave up and logged new ones.
And these two relate to the Idea Exchange itself:

Please upvote this to choose custom colors on Calendars:
When creating a calendar, it would be great if we could choose custom colors (CMYK values) to match client/product branding and more easily identify items in the calendar.
https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006936148-Calendar-Custom-Colors On top of the current limitation where it randomly color codes items by project - the colors don't 'stick'. Every time I refresh, Project ABC is a different color.

Hi Alison, One of our users had a suggestion that seems to be covered by 3 listings in Idea Exchange. Can they be combined into 1 idea? Collectively there are enough votes to have it be considered. (barring dupes of course)

Please upvote!! If you are a company that keeps issues/requests after they have become projects then you NEED this feature.
According to the Proof product team this occurs when the original issue is kept. If the issue is not kept then the proof with comments comes across to the new project. I propose that this should be the case no matter the disposition of the issue.
"I hope you are having a great weekend! I was able to find an answer to why the proof was not being brought over from the request. I was able to find an article explaining that "Proofs are included only when the option Keep the original issue and tie its resolution to this task is unselected." I am going to go ahead and close this ticket out now. Please let me know if you have any questions."

Hi all, My organization uses Workfront Proof for copy editing VERY text-heavy documents (scientific content with loads of references). It would be incredibly helpful if we could include formatting (bold, ital, underline, etc) as we make comments in Proof. This idea has been floating around for awhile and its something my entire organization would love to see implemented. Thanks.

Hi Community! I'm posting to this discussion to promote my idea in the Idea Exchange. I'd appreciate your votes as well as any feedback you might have! Please see below for the link to my idea as well as some additional notes on the topic.
Thank you! -Sydney "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360014145033-Link-Users-to-a-Specific-Update-on-a-Project-" LINK USERS TO A SPECIFIC UPDATE ON A PROJECT I'll commonly find myself saying something like this to a team member: "per the notes on the June 3rd update‚Äö√Ñ¬∂" in reference to a past update - but then the person I'm commenting to has to manually go scroll back to that update.
Ideal functionality would be just like how it works on Facebook or Twitter. You can click on the date of the post, and that creates a unique URL to link directly to that isolated update. WorkFront already has the date at the top of the update, it's just not linked:

Please up vote if you agree! :) "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360014264814-Planning-Tool" Unassigned Task Hours in Planning Tool Idea: In the new Planning tool when filtering to "View by User" it would be great to see a row of "Unassigned" planned hours. This will allow us to plan for capacity on a monthly or quarterly basis in the future because we don't typically assign/schedule specific people that far in advance. I see this being most useful as we plan and manage our upcoming Scope of Work at the beginning and then throughout the year. Michael LaBerge Strategic Ops Director In-House Creative Agency, Liberty Mutual Insurance
I've created my first idea: Create Assigned Hours as a reporting object. An Assigned Hours report would function just like an hours report, but would be future looking. You would then be able to run forecast reports on hours, revenues, costs and profits by week or month and the reports could be summarized for company, portfolio, group, etc. Believe this would benefit all users- please upvote! https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360014275094-Create-Assigned-Hours-as-a-Repor...

I've promoted @PERRY PURSELL 's Idea Exchange request. Please upvote if your teams use Agile: "https://support.workfront.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115006884268-Filter-option-in-story-board" Filter option in story board We need the ability to filter an iteration's story board, along with Grouping and even View options like we're used to on project task lists. Story Boards are not as useful to our team without it, so we're stuck with the Work list view. Michael Beynon Simspace Corporation
