Workfront Features In Depth

Agile Project Management

Workfront enables teams to work however they want, utilizing any methodology, including Agile, Waterfall, or a mix of the two. Die-hard Agile devotees can rely on Workfront to blend their chosen methodology with the convenience of an enterprise work management system.

Workfront’s Agile project management module combines the benefits of an Agile platform, while eliminating the communication barriers that often trip teams up. Workfront stands apart from competing solutions by supporting both Agile and Waterfall projects in a single product, leveraging native functionality, and at no additional cost. Most importantly, Workfront uniquely allows organizations to roll up Agile work into more traditional project plans, meeting the process needs of Agile development teams AND the data requirements of executives and business stakeholders doing milestone-based planning.

Resource Management

Resource management tools allow organizations to balance the workloads of individual employees or teams. Workfront’s Smart Assignments feature automatically suggests which employees would be best suited for specific tasks. Managers can quickly review what each employee has on his or her schedule before assigning any new projects.

See what each of your employees has on his or her plate before assigning new tasks. Enter the skills and the available time required to complete a certain task, and Workfront will quickly identify the individuals best suited for the assignment. In making these determinations, Workfront uses a combination of data and complex algorithms.

Project Management & Tasks

Projects are never static. Rather, they are living, breathing organisms that change and shift over time. Using Workfront’s project management features, groups can create task lists and assign tasks to specific individuals. Users can also view updates and issues in one, centralized place.

Using Workfront’s inline editing features, you can edit your list of tasks and adjust due dates based on realistic timelines and expectations. These changes are handled through real-time collaboration capabilities and an easy-to-use "My Work" screen, which eliminates the need for you to waste time navigating from project to project or page to page.

Custom Dashboards

With Workfront, organizations can collect data and create customized views for complete visibility. Rather than spending hours compiling data, businesses are able to leverage Workfront’s reporting capabilities to keep on top of key metrics.

Select from the more than 50 out-of-the-box reports that come included with Workfront. You can customize any report using the platform’s drag-and-drop tools. You can also tailor reports with customized views and filtering based on user permissions and roles.

Workfront Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Workfront's features:

Nicole Moritz

I use Workfront as a project manager and system administrator and find it enjoyable and easy to use

2018-05-02

Reporting and dashboard capabilities into resource management and budgeting to have more control into planning and prioritizing project work.

Pros

User interface is intuitive and collaboration is easy using updates. Reporting tool is robust and online help articles support customization, easy to follow directions even for non-technical users.

Cons

For example, only items from Current projects appear in My Work, but we track work at earlier stages of a project, before it has been approved.

Easy to use, user friendly interface and great reports.

2015-09-21

Workfront (AtTask) integrates several tools in one great solution.

Pros

-Friendly user interface: You can easily navigate the application and find your work items, comment on them and invite other people to collaborate.

Cons

-They are constantly making changes and sometimes this will affect the way things worked, maybe a feature something you really liked or used will go away or stop working and there will be no fix.

Workflow management tool with great reporting potential

2015-01-20

It helps minimize the time spent on meetings and it is helpful as it keeps a log of all updates and comments provided on a specific project/ task.

Pros

Project Management Features, and My Work interface are the most efficient AtTask features, as they provide project team members with insight into project progress, each other's updates.

Cons

Reporting needs more flexibility with Groupings and Dashboard exports.

Work front has been great for staying organized while working within a large organization. Easy to use and provides a great visualization of the projects I have on my plate.

2018-01-04

Pros

I love that the interface is not over-designed. It's simple and gives me everything I need to see in one place.

Cons

Also a time tracker would be helpful, so I can "log" in and out of each project to track my time.

Workfront The Do It All Project Management Tool, ALL IN ONE!

2015-12-22

We are able to collaborate on the projects, which cuts down on emails and meetings.

Pros

Easy to customize the reporting and dashboard feature.

Cons

Nothing major comes to mind, we are happy with our purchase of Workfront and they are improving the application from input from their clients. If you see something you think needs improvement then submit a product idea and they will review and then add into production.

Our support organization uses WorkFront to track the hundreds of projects we have currently.

2017-09-19

Everything we needed from PM software.

Pros

It allows tracking of issues, updates, and time spent- not to mention staffing and Gantt charts. There is nothing missing from this PM tracking software from my standpoint.

Cons

It is complicated, but so is Project Management.

Decent Project Management Software, but extremely pricey.

2018-06-04

I liked that I was able to add my own custom fields and run reports on those fields that I created.

Pros

Can build custom reports to pull project information.

Cons

I personally didn't use it for the project aspect of it, but users often did not like tracking their projects through Workfront.

Solid project management tool

2015-05-01

Pros

The tool is allowing us to accurately track the progress of projects across clients as well as track time sheets and create reports by client to look at hours.

Cons

Because there is so much you can do, it is sometimes more difficult than it should be to do simple tasks.

Really consider your needs and the likelihood of ever using all of the advanced features that this software has. I would probably not recommend it for a small agency. There are probably simpler tools. But for medium to large size agencies, it can replace several other tools that you may be using into one.

We are using the product in an hospital environment for 4 years for every kind of project.

2017-05-18

We could register all projects in our institution and could supply dashboards to our top management.

Pros

Strong capabilities in defining customized forms (custom data) Vey advanced API interface (we used them to interface Workfront with 4 different products) Powerful setup capabilities which are really great.

Cons

The product has currently two GANTT charts (a legacy one which has an advanced graphical designer built in Flash with no evolution, and a new one in HTML).

I highly recommend this solution as Project Portfolio Management tool.

Pros

Rich functionality - the Gantt view in AtTask is very robust and very forgiving.

Cons

We are located on the east coast and a problem reported in the early AM on the east coast may not get any attention at all until late, late afternoon on the east coast.
