Overall Satisfaction with Workfront

It is currently being used within a couple departments, but we are looking to expand to other ones. It helps us with initiating projects. We get more details on the PRFs for new projects. Its transparency allows a better view of the project and its status. It also allows to see any comments, or approvals where teams can communicate with one another. HQ proof is also useful as all comments are incorporated in one document, so they can be analyzed by the reviewer.
  • Transparency: approve/ reject buttons with comments visible to everyone on the project. Proof HQ. Status updates visible to everyone.
  • Notifications.
  • Flexibility. Allows to adjust settings, views and how projects are run
  • Easy on the eye! User friendly
  • Fast. Hardly any freezing.
  • Implements project management ideas. This allows for better project tracking and managing
  • Date adjustments. When one task is completed earlier, the dates could adjust from when it was approved taking in the amount of days per task.
  • Notifying the project owner when documents are uploaded
  • Overall cons are small but would make the work easier and initiate a faster response.
  • Increased productivity
  • Made the work Transparent: easier to identify issues
  • Allowed to better manage workflows
  • Allowed to have all approvals
  • Allowed to set form dates
It is definitely easy and user friendly.
Many PM tools are "boring" or difficult for some to use.
They are less flexible.
Workfront has a lot of functions that allow you to set things up as per your liking- many tools don't have that.
It's ideal to manage work within teams
It works great for smaller to medium projects. I am not sure how it would be on more complex projects, but I am sure it could be adjusted.
It works well for projects which have documents to be reviewed. It is great for following the progress of the project. I am sure for a tool to track teams and internal project stakeholders it works well! It manages all the approvals, tracks the work, and allows for communication. I am not sure how WF would behave if there were more stakeholders involved, like procurement and client facing.
