Add Prefix & Suffix to Projects

    Hi Jory, although it's not possible to add a prefix to a Project, you can, from today, specify prefixes in Request forms that create Projects from templates.

    By selecting a question to trigger the prefix (except Upload and section header), the answer to this question will be added as a prefix to all Subfolders/Subprojects, tasks, and subtasks of a Project. As outlined above, the Project title will not have any prefix.

    Looking forward to hearing what you think of this.

    Hi Stephen, Is the prefix as the only option for automatic renaming of folders and projects when duplicating a template? This makes it difficult to navigate the left panel since the prefix pushes out the more descriptive names of sub project or sub folder elements. I realize that the user can drag out the width on that left panel, but it would be really nice to have that suffix option when renaming duplicate templates. I already upvoted Jory, but I wanted to share why I think this is important. Thanks!

    @Jory - glad to hear the prefix work for you and we really appreciate the feedback on the suffix too.
     
    @Anne - thanks for your input here too. I understand that adding a prefix makes the names a little larger. The suffix would be helpful to identify tasks without moving the panel so thanks for feeding that back to us.
     
    If there's an update on this soon, I'll be sure to update you all here. Thanks again 👍

    Hi, 

    Here to support suffix option too! 

    Will also like to suggest having prefix/suffix with running numbers. For example, auto naming task 1,2, 3, 4, etc

    Please make the suffix option possible. I have a 147 line project template that is made up of a combination of folders, projects, and tasks that I manually add a suffix every time I duplicate it for a client.

    Our team would really like to see a suffix option added as well for the same reasons mentioned.

    Lisa, is your team looking at how many similar requests are on the platform? I've found at least 7 other requests for this product within your help forum. I'm sure if your team did the due diligence to see how many requests are out there, it would be 60 at least!

    Suffixes would be very useful for us. We would greatly prefer to suffix our project numbers on tasks as opposed to prefixing them.
