Features, Benefits, Product Strengths

  • Project ManagementWorkfront project management goes beyond core PM functionality. Project automation through customizable templates makes it easy to account every step in the process and turn new work requests into projects in seconds. Gantt charts help users create “what if” scenarios before committing to changes. They can adjust timelines, predecessors, or task durations to see the effect on the project deadline. A consolidated task list gives teams a single view for managing all work, providing visibility on what tasks are most important, and what is on deck, while receiving real-time updates. They can also toggle seamlessly between Waterfall and Agile views.

Manual assignment of tasks through drag and drop is also an option. It also supports remote work through cloud technology and mobile applications. Automated approval flows capture important information and route approvals to the right stakeholder. The built-in collaboration feature tracks threaded conversations, status updates, and feedback in one place. Proofing tools track comments, changes, and version updates, so teams can turn feedback into action items instantly.

  1. Hi Jose

    Pretty good summary of Workfront. I am currently in a PM role at an organisation who are currently in the process of deploying Workfront as an Enterprise Work Managament tool. Currently going through the training modules and I have to say the platform is very intuitive and easy to use. Makes collaboration very simple, and removes email chains from workflow management

    Seems to be a pretty powerful tool – only concern I would have so far is that it may be a little too transparent, but apart from that impressed so far.

    The training provided by Workfront too is also excellent at bringing you up to speed fairly quickly with the platform
