New for group administrators: Create and manage statuses for a group at any level

To make it easier for all levels of an organization to manage and control their workflows independently, we’ve introduced the ability to create and manage statuses for subgroups. Now, from the Groups section in Setup, you can do the following for groups you administer on any level:

  • Create, edit, delete, and hide a status for a group
  • Lock a status for any group so that all lower subgroups below it can use it in the same way
  • Unlock a status for any group so that administrators of lower subgroups can customize it to meet their unique needs
  • Set a group status as a default status
  • Reorder and hide the display of group statuses on objects

Workfront administrators can also do these things (for all groups).

Previously, this functionality was available only for top-level groups.

For more information, see Manage group statuses.

New for administrators: Create a billing record custom form

Now you can improve how users capture billing information by creating a billing record custom form. Users can attach the custom form to a billing record, fill it out, and run reports that include the information in the form.

For information about creating custom forms, see Create or edit a custom form.

For information about attaching a billing record custom form to a project, see Add a custom form to an object.
