Project Status automation

Hi there

within the Automation Engine, it would be great if there was a out-of-the-box trigger available to auto-change a project status to 'In progress', if any task within the project also has it's status changed to 'In progress'. A trigger for project kick off basically.

thanks

Jem

I completely agree. That's currently a manual step that is often overlooked. Anything we can automate across all workflows would be helpful!

This would be very useful. My team regularly forgets to move the status of the levels above what they are directly working on causing high level overviews to look like no work has been done until you open the task up and see most of the sub-tasks are complete or in progress.

What I would love to see is the automation of the project status change when the last task is set to Completed status and the whole project status changes to Completed. Or if there was a dependency on a milestone or a specific task, so that one that changes to status Completed the whole project status changes to Completed.

This will be helpful to high level viewers, currently it is a manual task and people tend to forget to change the status of the project.
