About Adobe Workfront
The collaborative work management leader, helping companies plan, execute, and deliver great work and exceptional customer experiences.
I also really like using their project templates for repeatable workflows. Once a project is set up, it is quite intuitive on how to iterate.
There are no tools to further organize projects and tasks further than their due date.

It has given us ability to plan, manage, and measure work based on data
Comments: Sharing of projects is now easy and every member of the team has up to date data on project progress. Moreover, executives look for loopholes to help in easily and monitor progress.
It has given us ability to plan, manage, and measure work based on data which helps organization executives to monitor work in real-time using the data. The most important thing is that their support team worked with us from the beginning to create a platform that best fits our job environment. Now we can easily work in teams as we are able to plan, create and share tasks and projects within the platform and most importantly Workfront was integrated with the softwares that we use on a daily basis. Another benefit is that they offer a free trial for an organization.
The vendor support team took a little bit longer in creating the Workfront platform that could best match our needs but in all it was a success and now we are good.
Manage many projects from one place with Workfront
Comments: Given that the majority of our department's employees work from home, having a centralized hub where everyone's current and completed projects are accessible is invaluable.
The ability to delegate work and track progress without micromanaging is a huge time saver for me when managing large projects or initiatives. I can attest to the usefulness of a request queue; it has allowed my team to better manage incoming job requests and distribute resources accordingly.
The complexity of Workfront's user interface and processes can make it difficult to implement efficiently. The high price tag comes with little opportunities for personalization.
Adobe Workfront review
Comments: In summary, Adobe Workfront is a user-friendly project management tool that offers a comprehensive set of features, scalability, and customization options, and valuable insights into team productivity and performance. While the pricing model may be complex, it's undoubtedly a tool worth considering for businesses looking to streamline their work processes and improve collaboration. However, as with any software, it may not be the best fit for all businesses or teams, and careful consideration of the features and pricing is essential before investing in this platform.
What I like the most about Adobe Workfront is its user-friendly interface and ease of use. The platform offers a comprehensive set of features, including project management, resource management, time tracking, and reporting, that are intuitive and straightforward to use. This makes it easy for teams to manage their workloads and collaborate effectively.
Adobe Workfront Review

A Stress-free work-life with Adobe workfront
Comments: The overall experience is just great. My workload is reduced while my productivity at work has increased. I am able to track, manage task in an orderly manner. I am able to work with the team collaboratively. Its easy to monitor any or all parts of a project.
What I like most about this product is the fact that it provides accurate functionality even while working remotely. I am able to view pending project approvals because the dashboard makes it simple to view the tasks on which I am to work on as well as the due dates for submission of the projects. It also lets you know what you're responsible for, through email notifications.The online proofing tools provide an easy way to organize and gather feedback from multiple sources throughout a project.
The mobile and tablet versions of the online proofing tools is quite stressful.
The Effective Multiple Construction Projects Management Tool.
Comments: The most effective project resource management and the easy data sharing and the reports production through its tools is profitable. Risk and also safety management across different Construction projects its impressive.
Adobe Workfront functionalities like scheduling and multiple projects planning capability are effective and its tracking tools are excellent.The easy team coordination ability with Adobe Workfront is productive, and the creation of process reports and documentation the system is incredible.
Adobe Workfront has zero issues found to report. The platform is easy on implementation and also on setting.
Suits all needs! Easy to use
Comments: Overall great experience. Amazing platform for organising and overseeing projects and task management.Some bugs and minor improvements could be fixed/made.
Adobe Workfront is easy to figure out and utilise. User management and project overview is one of the key things we use it for. Everything is centrally located and accessible online and all users can view it. For the most part the application is quite responsive. Very easy to oversee project management, task management and to keep a track of deadlines.
A bit expensive for small businesses, It takes a lot of clicks to get to a location in the app and it would be good if you could add images to the comments section in posts.
Efficient Project Management Made Easy with Adobe Workfront
There are several aspects of Adobe Workfront that I found particularly impressive. Firstly, the user interface is very intuitive and easy to use, which made it easy for me to get started. Secondly, the feature set is robust and comprehensive, offering everything I needed to manage my projects effectively, including task management, resource allocation, and project tracking. Finally, I really appreciated how customizable Adobe Workfront is, alowing me to tailor the software to fit my specific needs and workflows. All of these factors combined made it a great choice for my project management needs.
it can be quite complex sometimes, which makes it harder for some users to get started. Additionally, sometimes it can be somewhat slow or laggy, which can be frustrating
Practical and functional.
Comments: The experience was pleasant and simplistic, without major difficulties or surprises.
The Adobe Workfront app is easy to understand, self-explanatory and delivers what it promises.
The document editing part is not as efficient for scanned attachments.
Comments: The biggest plus is how easy it is to communicate with clients, sales reps, and the graphics department. It makes work life run easier.
I use Workfront everyday- most of the day. When I send clients proofs they can open the proof, comment with all the changes they may want or make a decision of approved. The client can easily use the tools at the top of the page to highlight or point to what they want changed. The client can ask us questions and we can answer them all in the same place. Sales Reps. and assistants can also comment or ask the client questions in the same manor. Clients and Sales Reps. can also download the app to their phones and use this software anywhere and anytime. Very user friendly and easy to explain to new clients even over the phone. I love how you can add client email and info so you don't have to remember all the client email to send to each client. All you have to do is type the business name into the software and the clients emails will pop up for you to select. I also love how it time stamps all activity and tell you who made the activity. Sometimes clients will put in changes after we have gone to print and want a rebate because the change was not done. However, now we can see that the change came in after the dateline. Another very convent feature is that you can attach documents like pictures or anything you may want in your ad. From there you can easily download whatever has been attach and us it. This software is the most user friendly and convent than any other software I have used. I love how the comment part is so easy to look at and the tools are great!!!
I truly have no cons. Sometimes there are up-dates at inconvenient times but I don't consider that a con its just part of the deal. I worst thing I can say is a couple times of year we have a client or Sales Rep. that has a problem with the app. However, the problem is usually fix that same day and sometimes it is user error and not the program at all.
Workfront makes managing projects easy with strong training, support and reporting features.
Comments: It helps us save time when it comes to resource allocation and time management. The reporting features helps upper-management better understand what we are doing and how much time it takes to do it. I love how they are constantly pushing updates that help improve the tool based on user feedback.
I have been a Workfront user for a few years now and am a big proponent of this project management tool for several reasons. 1) I find it very intuitive for users to use 2) It is easily customized based on the needs of your users 3) The reporting feature is worth the price of admission itself 4) Their support team is quick to respond and the self-help area is robust so you can find an answer to any question you may come across 5) Workfront offers a comprehensive training tool that covers several types and levels of training for users at all levels including frequent live trainings 6) The Community area is a great place to share ideas and ask for help from other users 7) They are constantly making updates and improvements to the tool 8) The Workfront Proof viewer is a great feature for those who want to markup and share creative within a project. We looked at several solutions and I'd say that Workfront was by far the best option for our internal creative agency.
Setting up can be time consuming if you don't already have a process in place. Do your homework and dedicate the time to do it right before launch or else user adoption can be difficult. Plan on user adoption to be your biggest hurdle as people are uncomfortable with change. Make the Workfront trainings mandatory before use.
It's worth a look, but missing a few key features for myself
I used to think Workfront was terrible, until I tried other enterprise level project management software. I'm not saying it's the best, far from it, but I think you start to appreciate it more after you realize what a herculean task it is to track everything. It does a decent job of letting you know what you're responsible for, with helpful email notifications so you don't need to always be in the tool. And once you get those notifications it's easy to respond directly in email or link to the project/task at hand and respond or make changes there. The really killer feature is the proofing tool, which despite some grumbling is one of the best out there. It allows commenting and markups of all types and allows you to do so in context. It also does versioning of the proofs, which is super helpful to go back to to remember what was marked up prior or changed. All in all it gets the job done but it's not particularly a pleasure to use, other than the proofing tool.
Not the most user friendly or aesthetic. The dashboard could use some better UX. I tried out a beta of the new dashboard and that was even worse, glad they didn't roll it out. The one big negative is the lack of a proper calendar module. I heard that one exists but for version my company uses, we don't have anything remotely resembling a calendar view. This is so helpful to me to get a view of milestones and deadlines coming up, without having to do the mental gymnastics of looking at a list view of tasks and figuring out what my priorities are. While the proofing tool is amazing (see pros) it does have a couple of missing features. One is the ability to mark comments as completed or resolved without having to do a response, and the only is to somehow create a linear history and relationship of the markups through the versioning system, so you see the evolution of them. Also, the whole idea of creating percentages done of a task seems so arbitrary to me. Even my company doesn't take much stock in it. We basically leave things at 0% until we absolutely need to mark things as 100% complete in order to not risk being at risk or to move on to the next task that's dependent on the prior one.
Comments: I started as a planner and then got promoted to a Marketing Project Manager and became the System Admin. Over time I've noticed people staying on track of their assignments better and knowing overall deadlines. Also all communication for the project lives in one place for everyone on the project, so you don't have to be worried about falling out of the loop via emails like before. User adoption is up thanks to great boot camp training for me as a system admin.
I really like the organizational elements. Building templates takes a lot of time, but once they're built, it makes it easy for bulk editing and converting requests into projects. When it was first implemented, the company wasn't on board outside of the Marketing department. After attending Admin Boot Camp, I created a staff training program and now user adoption is much higher. I especially love the legacy of projects. You can refer to previous years for recurring events/projects. Your support team is very nice and professional. Lately your team has offered calls after submitting tickets which I greatly appreciate it. It makes it much clearer on both ends. Also love that all documents, updates, etc. live in one place and not in dozens of offline emails!
The new Home isn't fantastic. There are still a lot of limitations, so the number of clicks are still the same as the legacy version. For example, if they want to refer to a document in the task, they have to click into the task. Also, there's difficulty in seeing all updates made in the task so if you need to reply to a thread, you can't do it. At least our users can't.
Complete and powerful PM information system with some areas to improve
Working in an in-house marketing department, we have been using Workfront for three years to manage our projects and operations. We need overall visibility on all the activities of our department, plus a powerful collaboration platform.
Our main aim using Workfront is to manage the capacity vs workload of our department and to be able to forecast the demand.
Workfront is fulfilling our basic needs, but we feel that there is a lack of ability to create clear dashboards or to have a better visibility of critical task between multiple projects at the same time (which happens when several campaigns overlap).
There are other points to improve (see Cons below), but it seems that folks at Workfront are committed to improve those areas and correct the product weaknesses.
Logging hours is not painful (as it actually sounds), there are several choices to input them and it’s quite easy to get used to the habit. The collaboration features are very good: comments, sharing if documents, approvals... Work requests via assignments are clear and provide accountability. Integrated document proofing and versioning is a must for any creative department and this one works really well. Workfront support is quick and responses are elaborated, always providing a workaround if there isn't a functionality to match your need.
Reporting is a bit limited; while basic reporting is completely fulfilled and you can present the information in clear graphs, when you try to create complex relations (historic vs forecast, capacity vs demand) things get more complicated, there are limitations and you need workarounds to obtain the desired (or closest to the desired) information. Sharing of information is cumbersome; although you can send automatic reports by email, it's difficult to distribute more elaborated pieces of information. Resource management is limited; there are tools in the system, but they are not intuitive and are a legacy of previous versions of the system. Learning curve is steep, it doesn't take much time to get familiarised with the common request-collaborate actions (which most of the users will do), but it needs much time and training to carry out actual project management processes within the system.
Workfront Helps Your Team Manage Projects
Comments: Overall, I think Workfront has helped our team manage multiple projects in an effective way. With this tool, we have been able to launch campaigns and assignments efficiently and it has helped us stay on track with getting tasks completed in a timely manner.
Workfront has helped our team organize projects in a functional way. It allows you to group similar tasks and assign subtasks to members of your team with due dates, hours for completion, etc. Workfront also includes a built in calendar that integrates with your tasks, so if you're off on PTO or a holiday, task due dates automatically update to work around your schedule.
Workfront can be counter intuitive sometimes when it comes to time management. There are a few functionality issues that I think could be updated to better serve its users. One example of this is having to click a button to say you're working on the project, rather than just clicking once to say you've completed the project. The interface design could also be updated to be a little more user-friendly and visually appealing.
Adobe Workfront is Fabulous
Comments: Overall, Adobe Workfront is a reliable and feature-rich project management tool that is well worth considering for any organization looking to streamline their workflows and improve collaboration.
Adobe Workfront is a powerful project management and work management tool that is well-suited for enterprise-level organizations. It offers a wide range of features and integrations, including task and resource management, project and portfolio planning, collaboration tools, and reporting and analytics.One of the standout features of Workfront is its flexibility and customization. It allows users to tailor the platform to their specific needs and workflows and offers a range of integrations with other Adobe products, as well as with popular third-party tools like Microsoft Office and Google G Suite.The user interface is intuitive and user-friendly, making it easy for team members to quickly get up to speed with the platform. Workfront also offers excellent support, with comprehensive documentation and resources, as well as live training and support options.
Cost: Adobe Workfront is a subscription-based software, and the cost can be steep for larger organizations.Complexity: While the platform is highly customizable and offers a wide range of features, it can be complex to set up and use, especially for organizations with a large number of projects and teams.Limited integrations: While Workfront offers integration with many popular tools, it may not integrate with all of the tools and systems your organization uses.Limited mobile app capabilities: While Workfront does offer a mobile app, it is limited in terms of features and functionality compared to the desktop version.Lack of flexibility in project hierarchy: Workfront does not allow users to easily move projects between different levels of the project hierarchy (e.g. from a sub-project to a parent project). This can be a limitation for organizations with complex project structures.
The customizable tool for organization, collaboration, and project management
Comments: To keep track of everything and provide reports, we utilize Workfront. Instead of manually adding projects to a list, we can now do so automatically. Assigning duties to different groups is also more accessible now, saving us time and reducing the need for constant meetings and phone calls. We've been able to carry out massive projects while keeping tabs on every detail. This is the best project management and collaboration tool, and I suggest using it. Everything I need is in one convenient location. We can link the work with the rest of the firm thanks to Workfront.
It's a platform where you can keep track of all your projects and chores in one place. I enjoy how well it works with our other programs, which is crucial because it provides us access to so much data. Workfront is excellent since it can be tailored to each user's requirements. Using it to handle projects is a breeze. Even better is the fact that it can send emails automatically, saving you time and effort. The ability to monitor all processes in real-time simplifies the allocation of available assets. Workfront is an excellent choice if you want a highly flexible system.
The only thing I'd change is to have the ability to view all projects on a single dashboard, as the current layout might be cluttered and only shows a subset of what's available.
Wonderful way to track your work, communicate and report on almost anything you can dream of.
Comments: It allowed our IT department to go from 5 products to track our work (ITSM, Assana, TFS, MS Project, and Spiratest) to one product where we use it for our Helpdesk, Projects, Agile Teams, Test Cases, and results, and many many dashboards and reports to gauge how we're doing. Now we're able to track our work and if the work belongs to another team we can pass it along without having to recreate it in another tool. The communication function is also been a success for us.
The work tracking, communication and reporting capabilities. Reporting is a misnomer because it's more of a screen view that allows you to dive deeper into the report and the objects in the report. The Communication methods of being able to comment on objects and allow people to respond via email and still append the reply as a log in the object has been a big win for us. Even naysayers now love the product in our organization. The reporting is so powerful I instruct users to develop their dream scenario and I can usually deliver what they want.
From time to time it can get glitchy. They've made great improvements on this over the years and I've had the same issue with other products too (i.e. MS Project used to crash on me once a day). But for the complexity of the product and all the functionality it delivers, it's a very small percentage of time that this occurs.
It supports better delivery and works planning by connecting millions of people!
Comments: This software is perfectly designed for managers. Additionally, you get paid by working per hour. You can intuitively track your project with various capabilities that this software offers. This tool is thoroughly made with the best customizing details for the managers.
Adobe Workfront is one of the most premium platforms which brings brilliant productive results. It helps in better screening and updates the features according to the need of hours. Additionally, you will find it the ideal tool for communication and tracking the organic audience. Thus, you should rely on this modern tool for getting expected and unexpected results. Adobe Workfront works limitlessly by providing analytical information and reports. It supports better delivery and works planning by connecting millions of people. Additionally, it helps in managing data from various enterprises. Thus, it offers helpful planning and execution of various selling plans.
The most irritating thing about Adobe Workfront is that it takes too long to run an operation. Additionally, at times it becomes very clingy to activate. Thus, the users find it hard to manage buffer and malware issues in it.
Workfront for Managing Your Work on the Front End
Comments: Overall I liked it but sometimes it couldn't solve every need if its internal communication within your immediate team. If its used internally for collaborating with different departments then its more useful, especially on projects you are working on together.
This software is great for managing the status and development when assigned a particular task, assignment or project. Especially if the project has multiple contingencies and dependencies to show what is down and how long including the slack line and critical path. Project Managers please pay attention, this can be of immediate value to you for projects that have a huge break down of the separate tasks and the time frame for each. If you are not in project management and still find value in managing your subordinates workload through a high level view then this tool delivers on that front. It can be easy to see where each assignment is at during the duration of the process.
The biggest con is how the software can be setup. In my experience, sometimes its easy to use and more fluid and other times it has multiple extra steps added for all parties involved which increases the time it takes to get anything done and is a real pain to navigate and ensure any updates made to everyone who needs to see it does. Which requires more technical nuances which is highly unnecessary.
Let Adobe help push your business into the future on time
What’s really incredible about Adobe is that it’s more than just a program that used to be for graphic design and computer nerds. Adobe has really pushed into the house Covid 2022 with a incredible program that allows your organization to use so many different features. The project management tool and all the other ones that assist such as time scheduling and tracking and project management assignment and all those other things are so incredible when it comes to trying to keep your organization or business on track. It’s very hard to manage more than a few people all alone when you have a program that allows you to be able to see if peoples time is being utilized correctly or if some tasks don’t need as much time as others it’s a very cool thing to have. I would say take the leap and go forward and implement this into your programming for your company and watch how you’re employees grow and how your business grows as well
I think some of the harder parts of this program that seem to pop up or it’s a little bit harder to get used to working with us. It’s a lot more complicated than it seems sometimes for certain parts of the program. You have to be knowledgeable about how to use this program and you can’t just figure it out by just playing around in it. You really have to have a dedicated knowledgeable person who can run this program and do it well
Couldn't Do My Job Without It
Comments: We are solving lack of visibility into the work that hits our team, we also are using Workfront to demonstrate where we are lacking capacity to complete tasks and to collaborate on proofs in one place vs. having a million emails and different sign-offs where people can't see what others have already commented or signed off on.
Allows me to manage 100's of tasks assigned to me, enter time I spend on those task, assign to and collaborate with others all within one tool without having to keep tons of email chains, and allows me to easily demonstrate to management what it is I am working on, how long I spend on it, and introduce opportunities to improve upon the data/processes that we are capturing in Workfront.
Can be hard to teach others to use it because there are many ways of doing the same thing, it's customizable but I think there are some aspects that are surprisingly not customizable that a lot of other businesses would use, and I would really like a way to create object that aren't as big as projects but require a little more effort than Tasks. It's also hard to report comprehensively on tasks and projects if your team has a healthy mix of both.
Comments: Work management for our entire insurance organization. We want a consistent view into the work being completed in each project, program, and portfolio for budgets, resources, etc.
1. Flexibility in providing work management options - easily tailored to support multiple functional groups within a single organization 2. Reporting tool capability - provides the ability to report and display on any piece of information captured in the work management process (with a few limitations on display - see cons) 3. Customer support model - help is always available through the Help function, Workfront Community, and Customer support group
1. Reporting - there are a few limitations to the reporting capability (e.x. you cannot add a project gantt chart to a report or dashboard that displays in the parent/child relationship) 2. Lack of inherent integrations with other popular systems 3. Constant changing of our Customer Support Representative - the customer support model is great for answering questions (almost 24/7), but our company rep has changed 4 times in 3 years - makes it difficult to build a relationship
Robust software trying to be everything for everyone
Comments: The support is unparalleled. Our technical, sales, Customer care team was awesome. I would say I had to use them too much, but they were great every time. Can't commend them enough for the efforts to help us. I'd say a large piece of why we stayed with WF was because of their support team. It's almost like having so many options within the tool became counter-productive. If it maintained a more unique personality, and did more consulting to help clients adjust their processes to the tool, somewhat, I think there would have been more of a win for us. Our processes were fairly simple and we got all caught up in the bells and whistles of the tool. It could very well be that the tool wasn't right for us; I didn't have any say in the decision-making process.
The Ease of building reports; Getting the data out of the tool is really easy. The ability to format reports the way you want to see the data is very useful too. The UI is very easy to navigate, and easy on the eyes - not so busy and crowded on any one page, which I appreciate.
Way too complex, too many moving parts, too many hard-coded definitions for tasks, groups, teams, roles, etc. The backend of WF is exhausting. I, more or less, had 2 admins that had to manage the tool for the company. I don't take off TOO much for this, as the company was very lazy in using the tool. However, part of that laziness was because of the complexity of doing simple tasks within the tool.
