Does the community have a best practice or recommendation for cancelling a project within Atlas? The use case is: a project is so far "Off Track" that the team decides to cut their losses and pull the plug. (i.e. cancel the project without finishing it.)
I see the following project statuses in Atlas:
Ideally, I would want to see "Cancelled" in that list. In lieu of that status, what's the next best thing? Some ideas I've considered:
Edit: I think the same question applies to Goals in Atlas, as they share the same status list. How best to document a failed goal/objective? (If you're sufficiently aggressive, then sometimes you'll miss your goal, right? ;-) )
When we Cancel a project I currently have the owner make a note in the project and then archive the project in it's current status.
We do this so that we don't skew the Completed and Archived values.
If something is Archived it's either Cancelled (any status not Completed) or Completed.
I wanted to loop back and give you the update that we have now released Cancelled status for projects and goals 😄 We’re excited for you to try it and let us know what you think when you have work that needs to be marked as cancelled in the future!
Hi! I'm Rachel and I'm a product manager on the Atlas team.
Our team has spoken about adding a cancelled status before and we are in agreement that it is something that should be reflected in Atlas, as "Completed" in not a sufficient representation of this.
We will keep you in the loop on when we start working on this and make it available.
Thanks for your feedback!
