Why can I see a request queue, but my user cannot?

In the Queue Details tab of your request queue/project, ensure your user fits the criteria of the “Who can add requests to this queue?” field.

I gave users access to the queue, but now they can also see the request queue project. Why?

This has to do with how you gave them access to the request queue.

If you used the Sharing tool from the request queue project landing page, then you have given those users access to see the project in the list of projects.

If, however, you wanted to give them access only to submit a request to the queue, go to Queue Setup and select the appropriate option under “Who can add requests to this project.”

Can I turn a request into a project?

Yes. You can convert issues into tasks or projects depending on what is needed.

Check out this article for more information: Convert issues.

Where do I find a request queue to make edits?

You can use the Search field in the navigation bar or find it listed in the Projects area.

If you open a request from the request queue you can clcik on the project name in the breadcrumbs area.

Can I transfer the information from a request custom form to a project custom form?

Yes. When you create a custom form select both Project and Issue as the object types. Attach the custom form to the request. When you convert the request to a project the custom form will automatically attach to the new project and the values contained in any fields will appear in both the request and the project custom forms.

I’m looking at a project or task report. How can I find out what request this object originated from?

You can access fields in the Converted Issue and the Converted Issue Originator field sources to add that information to your project and task reports.

What’s the best way to filter for request queues in a report?

If your project filter includes Queue>>Is Public>>Equal>>None your report will show only projects that are NOT request queues.

If your project filter includes Queue>>Is Public>>Not Equal>>None your report will show only projects that ARE request queues.
