Our UberCalc solution is a swiss army knife of functions you can use to enhance Workfront, such as generating job numbers, aggregating data, designing custom tabs with specialized workflows, and much more.
To use it…
Since UberCalc is a calculation and workflow platform its usage is unlimited, but here are a few common examples:
- Job Numbers: create a new project as usual, then have UberCalc fill in the next available job number automatically, whether it is a simple sequential value (e.g. 100277), has meaning (e.g. YYYY-ClientCode-0018), or has complex logic such as the advance concept of sub-projects (e.g. YYYY-ClientCode-0018-002-001, 0018 being the parent, 002 being the second sub project, and 001 being the latter’s first sub project)
- Aggregate Data: configure your own UberCalc jobs to take the sum, min, max, average our count from a filterable set of child objects (e.g. the number of open high priority issues on each project), compute the value at a cadence of your choosing (e.g. nightly), and then store the result in a custom data parameter on a target parent object (e.g. right on the project), making it available (and easy) to then use with native Workfront reports, views, groups, filters, and calculations. The possibilities are endless, and the results are liberating.
- Custom Workflow: with a bit of our help, you can effectively extend Workfront’s data model by providing a custom tab on new request for users to enter an important reference number (e.g. Charge Line Codes) that then validates their entries against the latest data (e.g. an Excel file from your Accounting System you upload as a document each morning, and once validated, displays a template dropdown they can select from to then convert the (now validated) issue into a project, transferring the issue’s custom data, documents, and notes automatically as it does so.
- Commit Date: each night, UberCalc can automatically overwrite (sometimes inadvertent) user entered task commit dates with (more official) planned completion dates, reducing confusion by ensuring both users and project managers are aware of any scheduling changes.
