Hello. I have a few questions regarding non-urgent work. Our team is continuously manually changing dates as non-urgent tasks as they approach the assigned due date. Workfront is labeling tasks as “late” or “behind” based on the assigned due date, but technically the tasks are not late or behind since the work isn’t urgent.
Thanks for your help.
We manage those items in a few ways depending on the item.
Hope that helps some!
Following this thread as we have a similar issue.
My department works on a high volume of projects, many of which are loaded in bulk (though a kickstart) at the start of the product year. As other projects get added during the year, and as customers place pre-orders for products, projects get re-prioritized, and it's often necessary to push back task dates on less urgent projects.
I wish there were a middle-ground option for reflecting project status/condition between manual (too labor-intensive for our volume) and automatic (too rigid; doesn't account for changing priorities).
