  • Reversing language directions for server TMs

    • Under Community Review on 20 Apr 2017
    Users quite often work with AnyTM for file based resources but when they migrate to GroupShare the feature is unsupported as result the functionality of the translation system is decreased from translator's point of view.

  • Changing the number of phases and their names in GroupShare

    • Under Community Review on 27 Mar 2017
    This idea is simple. There should be a chance to create a custom sequence of phases in GroupShare. For example, instead of the usual 4 phases, I might need 8 or 9 phases of work for a given project. Also, customization of phase names is a must.

  • Create report option in GroupShare interface for all files currently checked out

    • Under Community Review on 12 Feb 2018
    When working on multiple projects with a large number of files in a number of different languages I would like to be able to see all files that are currently checked out (and to whom). I know that I can go to each project individually and find the...

  • Ability to force upLIFT alignment for server-based TM

    • Under Community Review on 15 May 2018
    In GroupShare 2017 SR1, the current implementation of upLIFT alignment for server-based TMs is such that a TM is only flagged as a candidate for alignment if certain criteria are met, according to a builtin algorithm. This would be fine in an ideal...

  • Mark files as "deleted" in GroupShare

    • Under Community Review on 27 Jun 2017
    • 1 Comment
    For obvious reasons, files already published on GroupShare cannot be deleted (you would only delete the files on the server, not on the clients, and you don't know which client has it already in his project list). It would be great to have the possibility...

    It is currently not fully possible to adapt the email templates that Project Server sends to users. It is not possible to customize the email subject, only the body. See also:

  • Read-only GroupShare TMs and enable update restrictions

    • Under Community Review on 10 Jul 2017
    There are several reasons to make TMs read-only or to restrict modifications: It is very easy to delete an entire GS TM from within Studio. Just a right-click... and except for a warning, poof, it's gone. Not good, because accidents happen. We...

  • "Send user details" option when creating a new user

    • Under Community Review on 30 Aug 2018
    When creating new users maybe the longest step is about copypasting all the data fields into a proper email and making such message read nice in terms of formatting and so. I I'm wondering if a dedicated button could be added to the user creation wizard...

  • Predefine the user name saved in TM metadata (created by, used by, changed by)

    • Under Community Review on 19 Aug 2020
    Hi all, in server-based TMs it should be possible to override any user settings so that user information is stored in TM meta data fields with predefined values (which the user should not be able to change). Example: You assign the external user...
