Dear Atomate Community,

I am currently working on calculating the harmonic phonons of a material using the Atomate2 framework. I have encountered the following warning relevant to the implementation in the workflow:

Warning

The current implementation of the workflow does not consider the initial magnetic moments for the determination of the symmetry of the structure; therefore, they are removed from the structure.

As outlined in the documentation, the current implementation of the phonon calculation workflow does not consider the initial magnetic moments for the determination of the structure’s symmetry. Consequently, the magnetic moments are removed from the structure. This presents a challenge for my project, as maintaining accurate magnetic moments is crucial for my calculations.

I would like to ask for advice on the following points:

- Incorporating Magnetic Moments:

How can I modify the current workflow to ensure that initial magnetic moments are properly set and maintained throughout the structural relaxation and subsequent calculations?

- Symmetrizing Structures:

What are the best practices for symmetrizing the structure before passing it to the workflow to avoid unnecessary displacement calculations? Are there specific tools or methods within Atomate2 or Pymatgen that you would recommend?

- Adjusting Convergence Parameters:

Are there recommended convergence parameters for phonon calculations that I should consider adjusting? How can I integrate these adjustments into the existing workflow?

Here is a brief outline of my current approach along with potential implementation code:

Setting Initial Magnetic Moments:

```
from pymatgen.core import Structure
def set_initial_magnetic_moments(structure: Structure, magmom: float):
for site in structure:
site.properties['magmom'] = magmom
return structure
```

Symmetrizing Structure:

```
from pymatgen.symmetry.analyzer import SpacegroupAnalyzer
def symmetrize_structure(structure: Structure):
sga = SpacegroupAnalyzer(structure)
return sga.get_refined_structure()
```

Modifying the Workflow:

```
from atomate2.vasp.workflows.base import get_wf
def get_custom_phonon_workflow(structure: Structure, magmom: float, user_params: dict):
# Set initial magnetic moments
structure = set_initial_magnetic_moments(structure, magmom)
# Symmetrize the structure
structure = symmetrize_structure(structure)
# Get the default workflow
wf = get_wf(structure, 'phonon')
# Update workflow parameters
wf.update(user_params)
# Adjust convergence parameters
for task in wf['tasks']:
if 'INCAR' in task:
task['INCAR'].update({
'EDIFF': 1e-8,
'EDIFFG': -1e-4,
'NSW': 100,
'IBRION': 2
})
return wf
```

I would greatly appreciate any insights, examples, or references to relevant documentation that could assist me in addressing these issues.

Thank you for your time and support.

Best regards,

Zhao
