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.

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.

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

Pros

-Great reports: As soon as you start creating projects and other tasks you can easily create reports to help you track all the information you need.

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.

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

2015-12-22

The reports & dashboard feature of WF gives a high level overview of all projects, task & issue’s.

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.

Workfront (AtTask) has the ability to maintain operational level of task scheduling and updating, valuable feature Timesheet for time capturing, and versatile reporting.

Amazingly Robust Project Management Software

2018-08-15

I was an end user, and used it to account for my time, track my projects from start to finish, share proofs, get feedback, and communicate with internal clients.

Pros

The basic project management capabilities, the continuous innovation and adaptations we are able to implement, and how it can become whatever tool you need it to be when you set it up the right way.

Cons

I miss my old project management software's "start/stop" timer for tracking time, but apparently they are considering adding this to workfront.

So far the use of Workfront has not improved much from the move Redmine product to this one.

Pros

Allows tracking of notes and tagging individuals to send email directly from tasks. Also allows documentation to be attached to tasks

Cons

Hard to organize and keep track of individuals assigned across multiple projects and tasks.

Great project management for creative and marketing departments

2019-10-15

While some of the bigger enterprise features and integrations may be missing, all the essentials as readily available, easily accessible, and not too difficult to setup.

Pros

Here are some of the things to like about Workfront: the ability proof web pages with live click throughs, version control, simulated browsers and devices, inline comments, a hierarchy of approvals, and progress taskbar.

Cons

Here are things that Workfront could use a little improvement: custom forms, integration to marketing platforms for deliverables on task management calendar (Hubspot specifically), more intuitive gantt charts for tracking team progress, and user views/rights that allow end-users to view and share projects without custom permissions.

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.

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.

Recommendations to others considering Workfront

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.

Brought together our cross-functional teams into 1 system for project tracking & resource management

2018-03-05

-Project visibility across multiple groups & departments -Reporting/tracking on time delivery of deliverables & projects -More insight into workload of users on different teams

Pros

-Project visibility across multiple teams - Workfront makes it easy for different groups to work on projects together & provide updates through the system, so all your project information is gathered in one place.

Cons

-Resource allocation - I think that the process of bulk assigning users to project tasks is a bit clunky, but I still like the feature.

Beginners Luck

We are new to Workfront. It would be helpful to have a site map of the platform and a dictionary of terms.

Pros

It seems to have a lot of potential for collaboration and project tracking/reporting.

Cons

It is challenging to learn as there are so many dimensions and ways to accomplish the same task.

Workfront is our way to success in Project Mangement even if it more expensive than other competitors

2018-08-29

We are using WorkFront for about 2 years now and is very pleased with the functionality and feature set it provides to meet our needs to manage Workfront takes time and effort to implement, but anything worthwhile should.

Pros

Customization and Small Duration to be built and including good tools for Project Management In case of owning a lot of tasks on daily basis: Workfront is the best for monitoring and follow up Including all the required Reports for Top Management Very Good Support Team Always upgrading and adding new features and reports

Cons

I couldn’t reach how to automate prioritizing projects and assigning project, I am searching for this feature currently Company should have a process before using this software else it will not add anything to the work flow Higher Cost than other simpler software’s companies Hard to get team members to update data consistently, which impacts project status/reporting
