Customization of Phase names is available with GS 2017. Leaving this open for votes on more phases.
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.
This limitation actually caused our organization to drop this product from consideration
Eric, which limitation? The renaming one or the fixed number of phases?
I'm unsure about changing the amount of phases, as it will pose challenges in terms of UI among others.
But I'm actually thinking we should take a more drastic approach by switching GS to…
Eric Bishop - when you have a moment, could you give us some input on this? See Rares Vasilescu - question below. I know this one is old but your input is very valuable. Thank you!
will this change in Groupshare 2020? Using customized "tasks" does not solve the problem as they refer only to packages and not online projects.
But I'm actually thinking we should take a more drastic approach by switching GS to the "task" approach.
I.e. we ship with a few pre-defined human tasks (Prep, Translation, Review, DTP, etc.) and allow users to create and name their own custom tasks whatever they want.
I think this would give you the flexibility you need. What do you think?
I'm very much in favor of this idea. Not only should it be possible to expand a workflow by adding phases to it, it should also be possible to have very short WF definitions with e.g. only one single phase.
Customization of phase names doesn't really solve this problem since there are always only four fixed phases and thee fixed statuses.
