Workfront is pretty easy to use in general. The interface is something anyone who regularly uses a computer would feel comfortable with. Some clicking through the menus is sometimes necessary to find what you're looking for but on the whole it makes sense. When scheduling tasks, however, the dates sometimes do what they want without your permission and that can feel a bit finicky.

I gave a rating of 10 on overall usability because Workfront is cloud based and very easy to use. Workfront also provides collaboration on projects which is critical to a projects success. The tool gives everyone high level visibility in their projects down to the smallest detail. Wonderful project management system, allows you to cut down on emails, meetings and no more spreadsheets for tracking your projects.

Workfront (formerly AtTask) is simply the finest project management tool I've ever used. It has the best features of Project (e.g. ease of use to see Gannt charts or task lists) but with robust reporting and easy communication via Updates? it's a hit.

I have witnessed users with a PMP background pickup the tool and use it to its full capacity within a week with very little training. Users without basic project management skills, however, have taken much longer with extensive one-on-one training. The tool is highly intuitive if you have a PM background.

I have used Workfront for the past 4 years, and find it very effortless to use. The functionality is very logical and clear, and communicating with other resources within Workfront is simple. The whole platform is very straightforward and it is very easy tracking progress on a timeline.

Workfront is relatively easy to use, the system logically makes sense but there are some features I use on a daily basis which aren't so simple to use. E.g. scheduling tool, seeing allocations, copying tasks, moving files - it's not a simple drag/drop, you will need to type in the project name each time and will add several minutes.

It is relatively intuitive to use. I haven't had much problem navigating and finding out the things I need. I'm able to communicate with team members easily, let them know when I've completed my part of a project. I can search for projects that I need to work on as well which is very helpful.

The individual features within Workfront are generally simple and easy to use. The issue is sometimes that they are difficult to actually find. I don't know if that's a Workfront limitation that's inherent to the product or if it's the way that my organization has things set up, but for the average user it can be difficult to find a given feature. Once you do, though, it's generally easy to use.

Configured thoughtfully, Workfront is a powerful project management tool worth the price. If you're used to cumbersome applications that force you to fit your processes and workflows into a one-size-fits-all solution, this is the one.

This gets a relatively high rating compare to the rest of my review, since for the most part many other users that I have had to train and review AtTask with, they are able to grasp it pretty quickly. I am able to still maintain workflow on a daily basis. Even when it gets worse, or more complicated from "Upgrades", at the end of the day, all my complaining doesn't mean we don't have the information we need.

About Workfront

Workfront is a web-based project-management tool developed by Workfront, formerly AtTask, based in Utah. 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.
