Coordinate efforts between teams using multiple work methodologies- Agile, Waterfall, mix- without disrupting collaboration or workflows. Allow people to manage work from anywhere with our tablet and mobile apps.

• Project Management - Creating and executing cross-departmental initiatives in Adobe Workfront is easy and intuitive. By automating workflows and standardizing processes, work managers can plan new work in minutes. Our suite of visualization tools lets each person customize the way they want to work- Agile, waterfall, or a mix. Our interactive Gantt chart, robust real-time reporting, and custom project dashboards give managers complete visibility into status, roadblocks, risks, and issues throughout the entire project.

• Portfolio and Program Management- Drive business initiatives forward by grouping projects into programs and portfolios. Create business cases to evaluate new work and automatically align all projects to the portfolio's objectives. Instantly see which projects your portfolio should work on, and track the progress and financials back to the portfolio's objectives.

• Issue Tracking - Every project has it's hiccups. Adobe Workfront tracks these detours with issues so you can compare your plan to the actual work. Each issue is attached to a project so all work remains in one place.

• Demand Management- Create custom request and intake forms so your teams get all the information they need to complete their work. Automatically route incoming requests to the right team so work can get started quickly. Set up scorecards to evaluate incoming work based on custom criteria. Requestors receive automatic updates on their work eliminating random status check emails.

• Resource Management - Use your most precious resource- your people- to their fullest capacity without burning them out. Use Artificial Intelligence to assign new work to the right people and level the workloads across the team. See the true capacity of your team and make sure you have enough people to complete the department's current and future work.

• Team Collaboration - Workfront orchestrates collaboration across teams, departments, and geolocations. With updates steaming in like a social media feed, people are notified of relevant actions and conversations happen in the context of projects and deliverables. With integrations to common productivity tools- email and chat, Workfront centralizes the conversations to everyone stays in the loop.

• Review and Approval- Work isn't finished until the ink dries on the final approval stamp. Adobe Workfront automates all approval processes getting feedback from the right people, in the right order. Gone are the days of missed versions, incorrect feedback, or paper signatures. Adobe Workfront makes sure people are reviewing the right version, and allows people to compare versions side-by-side for faster approvals.

• Reports & Dashboards - With more than 50 standard reports and unlimited configurable reports, Adobe Workfront provides executives, managers, and project teams with the information they require to make informed decisions. Learn where projects are steering off course, keep profitability in mind on client work, and track where your department is focused so leaders can make more strategic work decisions.

Project Management for Everyone

Overall, Workfront has been easy to use and allowed us to communicate within our marketing agency.

Pros

I'm not a project manager by trade. However, we were able to implement a custom workflow within Workfront that allows my team to manage projects and load-balance when needed.

Cons

Some features are not easily transferrable to other teams. If another team wanted to copy our process, they'd need to essentially start their workflow from scratch.

I've used Workfront with three different companies over the last five years. I've been able to use Workfront to help cut campaign request, approval and building in half, to solve the "everything through email" issue and to manage an extremely high volume of request from internal, external and disparate teams in a large organization that is change resistant. It's been meldable, helpful and honestly fun to learn and grow with Workfront as a company and as a system.

Pros

I love that Workfront is easy to configure and change as your organization grows. It's easy to stay up to speed with and make changes based on system changes and your organization changing. I also am in love with the reporting and custom data features. Custom forms and the ability to manipulate them to get data has been invaluable in every organization I've been in to date that has used Workfront.

Cons

I don't really have a ton of complaints if the system is configured well. Maybe that there are too many features? It can be a lot to wrap your head around but if you have the time to get to know it it is irreplaceable.

Long time administrator of AtTask/Workfront

Reviewed on 2015/09/01

Pros

Workfront has allowed our department to fine-tune our projects, which consist of approx. 45-50 projects per year over three selling seasons, all working concurrently. We have been able to integrate our Product Development dept in NYC and our distribution facility in South Carolina, in order to Go to Market in a seamless manner. There is visibility for anyone who needs it and a range of reporting functions.

Cons

It can be frustrating to set everything up in a particular manner, only to have it become a 'legacy'. The challenge I've faced as the admin for my company is that it's not my full time job and it can be time-consuming to figure things out at times, or try to configure a work-around to meet our needs. The reporting has improved a lot since we started with the product 7 years ago, but there are still some basic needs that aren't met, such as the fact that there's a beautiful Milestone report, but it's not printable. It is the exact type of report that is most useful for our organization, but it's impossible to print out for our dept meeting, for instance.

If you're looking for a quick plug and play management tool I'd go elsewhere, however if you want to take advantage of robust features/tracking and don't mind taking the time to learn the software Workfront is a very effective tool.

Pros

Workfront is a robust tool that allows for the managements of complicated projects to be broken down and assigned as smaller tasks.

Cons

The software has a learning curve that requires some training in order to use effectively. While it may be frustrating getting the hang of it initially, it is well worth it for the benefits provided once everyone is on the same page.

Workfront is our go-to. We have someone needing something we send them to submit their need through Workfront. IF someone needs to review or approval something, we send it through Workfront. That way we have a trail of information of why we did the things we did or went with the project(s). Its the paper trail. It also took us from having 2-3 hour long status meetings every week to one 30 minute meeting sometimes every week or so. We can summarize much better than running through a multiple page document spreadsheet. It has saved us time and sanity.

Pros

I am able to add all my projects and tasks into one location so that my team is aware of what I am working on and my clients can see where their project stands. This is very helpful in case something happens, we often say, if we get hit by "the bus" someone will know where my project is and what to do next.

Cons

It was a rough start. The account rep(s) that we have had were not very good at making sure we were happy as a customer or if we had a need. Since we got our remote system admin, it has been amazing. We love our rep!
