  • Reactivate a completed project in WorldServer

    • Under Community Review
    • 9 Comments
    In TeamWorks it was possible to reactivate a completed project, for example if it was completed by mistake. In WorldServer it is impossible to do so, and the translated SDLXLIFF cannot be integrated in a new project nearly as easily, either. Also, sometimes...

  • Proper search function

    • Under Community Review
    • 2 Comments
    The filter functionality offers the possibility to launch searches on projects. However, searching with the filter functionality is time-consuming, not really intuitive nor user-friendly. Moreover, once you are ready with your search, your need to reset...

  • Add ability to rename a project once it's already created

    • Under Community Review
    • 1 Comment
    It would be nice if, once a project is already created, it were possible to update the name of the project, in case something changes. A possible change could be adding the words Test or DNU. It may be desirable to leave the project in production for...

  • Add Step as column in Project view WS

    • Under Community Review
    • 1 Comment
    Please add Step as an available column in the Assignments > Project view, under Choose columns. Right now, to see the status of each language I have to open the task or open the Tree view and expand each language which is a lot of clicks.

  • Add new locales to an existing project

    • Under Community Review
    • 2 Comments
    It's impossible to add new locales after creating the project. The user needs to cancel the one created and create a new project which is really time-consuming and not handy at all (on both TranPort and WorldServer user interfaces).

  • Restore "(View one page at a time)" feature in WorldServer 11 and newer

    • Idea Delivered Partially
    • 0 Comments
    In version 10 of WorldServer, the "(View one page at a time)" option enabled you to see all projects and all tasks in one page. This is particularly useful in accounts where it is standard to have projects with hundreds of files, as it is not practical...

  • Adding a chat box in WS

    • Under Community Review
    • 0 Comments
    Would be very handy to enable users to communicate between themselves. Could be a translator contacting the project manager or the project creator to submit some queries about the translation. Some competitors already offer this type of useful functionality...

  • Possibility to make overall changes for every user

    • Under Community Review
    • 0 Comments
    The admin in WorldServer should have the possibility to make overall changes for every user. When writing this I am thinking about the same column structure or the user-specific or even Workgroup-specific configuration of WorldServer Transport. The...

  • Add an option to skip an automatic action at Auto Error step

    • Under Community Review
    • 0 Comments
    There are two options if a task went to an auto error: Cancel or Re-do. We have some cases, an auto error is unable to be resolved by Re-do. We have to cancel the task. It's great to add an option to skip the auto action at the auto error step. Thanks...

  • Customizable Garbage Collection for Project Types

    • Under Community Review
    • 0 Comments
    At the moment, the Garbage Collection settings apply to the entire WorldServer system. From our perspective, it would be great if Garbage Collection could be set up differently for different Project Types . The use case behind this is the following...
