Project Owner change to Project Manager or ability to change name via Global Admin


Level 1

Project Managers are processing a Project throughout a system within a company. 

The Project Owner is ultimately responsible for the initiation and completion of a Project requested to be worked on. 

Why would you not give the Admin the ability to change this nomenclature/role? It gives the flexibility needed. 

I read that in 2017 it was a hard NO from your development team with a very weak rational. The answer given the impression that the developer doesn't truly understand the need or use within a company of the Workfront tool. Why not give the Admin the ability to decide rather than what is believed internally from a non-user

Please revisit this request.


Here is the internal response to the request:

Thank you for submitting this request, voting for it, and sharing your use cases. We have reviewed the request and even though we understand it’s reasonable we will not change the name of the "Project Owner" field in Workfront at this time. We believe that users that might not be project managers can be responsible for and own a project. In this case, they can be designated as Project Owners. As a result, I will be marking this idea as "Not planned".
