What is Adobe Workfront?

Workfront is a web-based project-management tool acquired and now supported by Adobe since late 2020. It was designed for both IT and marketing teams, but can be implemented for any kind of project. Workfront offers all the features standard to project management platforms. Editing and updating issues from the project view is styled to work somewhat similarly to a social networking site, bringing team members together in one central location. From the project view screen, issues, documents, and other elements of the project are placed along a tab bar so that they may be addressed with one click directly from the hub.

The platform's Capacity Planner allows a manager to move resources to where they are needed, and has some automation features (e.g. the Set Best Fit option, which attempts to allocate resources optimally within given constraints). Agile project management is supported with features like Gantt charts, an easily viewable and manipulable backlog, and storyboarding. Team members can be managed with the aid of quantitative metrics that show where work would be best allocated.

A free trial is available, after which Workfront comes in four pricing options. The lowest tier is Collaboration for small groups, followed by Work which adds mobile accessibility and time sheets, then Plan which adds additional analytic, planning, and reporting features. Finally, Enterprise Plus offers the highest configurability as well as support and data security.

  • Some of the features it has weren't necessary for the business I consulted for, but I did notice it is very robust and can be a great help for those who need those specific features. You will have to use it yourself to see what fits you as my field was education, so some aspects just weren't relevant.
  • It was really great for the people who tried it out and got into it. They were able to manage their own work consistently, and found it to be a great help in making sure certain projects (like conversion tracking for admissions) didn't slip through the wayside.
  • Unintended bonus: when certain people left, it was a great way of assisting the training for their replacements!
  • For the new user, it can be complicated and overwhelming at first. This caused the company I consulted for to see a shift - only about half used the program and then the others refused to touch it. This made the program useless to them.

  • Overall I feel that I have greater satisfaction in my position because I no longer struggle to keep track of the information coming into me. Everything is in the request that I need and it makes completing my task faster and easier.
  • Productivity has been increased since there is no longer struggle to receive the information needed to complete our tasks. We have created forms that ask for all the information we need, even making some fields mandatory so we get EVERYTHING we need. No longer are we sent half the information.
  • Tracking and receiving updates is a breeze now, I no longer have to worry about someone not getting the information they need. They are simply attached to a request as an individual or in a team and get all the updates they need.

  • Workfront allowed our company to have multiple offices and work remote and still have projects continually move through the agency
  • The platform allowed streamlined project management needs so PMs could look at a higher level of timing for resourcing needs for a given team
  • Workfront's ease of integration with other tech allowed for a lot of flexibility to meet the needs of individual wants/needs so that each person could do their best work
