I heard in some discussion that, there will be a work request form to start a project. This will be helpful in most of our use cases.
You can also use business rules to kick off a project template when Job Starter submitted.
You’re correct that all INITIAL projects need an activity, but workflow status actions (and output ports) do have the ability to fire off a project(s). Today, you can have a contributor kick off (request) a new project within a task by building in some sort of logic and using the status action of “apply workflow”.
Today we have Activity Request Forms, what we expecting is a Project Request Form.
Activity Request Forms will create an activity, then under that activity it will create a project.
So in-order to create a project, we should create an activity.
Project Request Form will create only project. You say New Project from template doing the same work. But this option is only for Full users not for Contributors. Also it will be a more abstract way to start a project.
