Looking for best practices here. I know we can probably order a custom virtual column that would present the deadline and then have it colored in orange when the deadline is getting close and then turn red when the deadline is missed.
Curious to hear how all of you handle this.
Documents usually include 2 interconnected topics: marketing + another industry; legal + IT etc.
Is this achievable by adding a custom field?
After the XTRF 7 update, the ordering of tasks has been changed, and now our classic projects look like this:
On the one hand we can't really decipher the pattern, while on the other hand, our PMs vastly prefer the regular ascending order of tasks.
Is there a way to set this back to an ascending order?
Many thanks for your tips in advance.
Good news, everyone! This issue has been fixed and will be available in the upcoming releases of versions 7.0.x (tomorrow) and 8 (this week).
Do you use different workflows for freelancers (translator job, editor job) versus agency (translator & editor job)
Do you use different workflows for freelancers (translator job, editor job) versus agency (translator & editor job)? We use agencies sometimes to help handle large volume. I was wondering what other LSPs did in these circumstances in XTRF.
I've been playing around with XTRF 7 on our test instance, and I've noticed that when I set the deadline of a job in Classic, the system does not offer me the option to change the start date of the next job.
I've seen that this is the default behaviour when using Smart projects, but this was a great functionality in Classic projects, our PMs used it a lot to make their work faster, and since it was optional to begin with, I don't see why this was removed.
Not to mention that adding this feature to Smart projects was already suggested here by Sancho.
I know that Classic project users are in a minority, but will any of you miss this feature in XTRF 7?
Thanks for checking. That might indeed be the problem. To be honest, we almost never use the selection calendar, typing is much faster.
I can confirm that it works when using the calendar.
So I guess this turns into a bug report, typing doesn't trigger the automatic set date and time. :)
If I have to add reference files after tasks have been sent out to translators, I'm finding myself having to click on "Refresh input files" for each individual task. This can get very tedious when the project consists of some 25 languages. To make matters worse the workflow page reloads after each click, and I have to scroll back to find where I was before. Surely there must be a smarter way to handle this?
Like a button on project level to refresh input files for all tasks?
We would like to make the evaluation of translators mandatory (with a free text comment), because sometimes project managers forget to do it. As it is apparently not possible yet we have setup a task in the workflow. The problem is that apparently a folder with the name f this task is setup automatically, which is disturbing. Has so. a suggestion on how to solve this?
I'm confused how this option should work. We are using classic projects and in almost all cases the Trados CAT analysis uploaded to the receivables is also valid for the payables.
If I go to the workflow configuration, it is possible to set the payables option for a job to "match with receivable". However when I then create a new quote with this workflow, import the Trados analysis under receivable, it is not automatically copied to the payables section for that job.
Is this not what this option is intended for?
