Is it possible to create a link that gets included in a task name or description that will take the user directly to a section on a custom form attached to a project. The link would also be added to a project template. Thanks.
Topics help categorize Community content and increase your ability to discover relevant content.
If you're referring to Project forms, the custom form is on the overview page so if you link there, you get the form. If you want the form on top of the overview you can control that in Layouts.
Thanks, We have a specific section on one of our custom forms (not the Overview) that we want to make as easy as possible to edit. Ideally, clicking the link in the task description would take you to that section, in edit mode.
If you're in New Workfront Experience, this is a bit of a workaround, but might help?
Note that this section will show for any users with that layout template on all projects (I know you were aiming for a specific project template - I wasn't able to make it work on just a certain project template). If it's a custom form that only applies to certain projects, that might not be a huge deal, but something worth mentioning while you weigh if it'll work for your users. Adding the custom section to the user's layout template won't allow the user to remove the custom section.
Alternatively, you could give instructions to the users on how to add a custom section with that dashboard on the project. If you go this route, it still shows on every project but they'd be able to close it if they wanted to and add it back when/if they wanted.
You could weigh the options depending on your users and projects that this would be used on. If they're savvy enough, it doesn't hurt to know how to add custom sections!
It takes a little bit of setup initially, but would help highlight the exact fields you're looking for.
in our instance we refer to custom forms directly from a report (however not specific custom form if there are many added to and object) using "Category Name" field. This gives you a hyper link, after clicking you get a pop-up window and you can quickly make edits to custom form and click save.
I don't know if similar interaction can be applied to task name (assuming you manage to include category name there), but maybe this will trigger some further chain of thoughts that will lead you to find solution 🙂
This is really good‚Ä¶ and it works well with multiple forms.
I think automatically going to a specific part of the form would require anchors. I doubt WF supports that.
I tried it on a task form in an assignment report and it works fine.
