We would like for the users to have the option of identifying an item as a favorite so each user can see in the dashboard the list of all the items he has selected as favorites. This functionality has been available in project management but, do we need to do some activation to have it in the items as well?
Thanks in advance.
Create this view with item ID as filter. Users can add items to this filter manually. I would call this 'static' favorites.
Alternately, you can explore other possibilities to create 'dynamic' favorites. For ex., when user wants to call a category of items as their favorites, s/he can create the view with that category value as filter..So, whenever an item is created with that category value, it will get automatically added to the favorite
This experience is obviously different from PPM Project (cProjects) in that users create 'favorites' view not from within each item!
Thanks a lot for your point of view. Although, as you say, the experience might be less user friendly, I think it provides us with a workaround.
I will anyways raise the consideration to SAP that it is confusing that the standard "favorites" functionality is available in PPM Projects and PLM but not in Portfolio.
