Cut Back on Status Meetings
Keeping everyone informed in real time eliminates the need for status meetings and hallway catch-ups.
Notify the Right People
Tag specific members of your team or outside stakeholders on status updates, date changes, or questions.
Stay Connected on the Go
Catch up on updates via your mobile or tablet—reply to questions or issues on the fly when you’re not at your desk or if you’re on the road.
Pull the Right People into the Conversation
Collaborate with the right people on every project. Simply tag a specific team member, an outside vendor, or an entire team to include the right stakeholders in an update you post to Workfront. You check on these notifications in the way that works for you—on the project page, your My Work page, or via email. Status meetings are a thing of the past now that project knowledge is in one easy-to-find, easy-to-navigate location. Collaborate and update right from Workfront. Whether you’re replying to an issue logged by the QA engineer or updated specs from the product development team, updates open up the conversation and increase project visibility.
An Easy Way to Leave Detailed Updates
Keep your scrum team, other stakeholders, or the project manager in the loop with status updates on tasks, projects, documents, and issues. You can quickly detail if the status has changed from new to in-progress or complete, if it’s going smoothly or if there are small or major concerns. And, you can indicate how far along you are in the progress by selecting a percentage. Are you just under halfway with this task? Mark it 40%, tag the right people, and now everyone on your team is on the same page.
Zero In on the Details
Update the project manager that you’ve accepted a task right from the My Work page. Simply select the Work On button and the task is automatically populated into your queue. If the request date seems out of reach or the task details aren’t quite clear enough, suggest something more reasonable and send a notification to the requester. Notifications and updates open up dialogue to keep everyone on the same page.
Access Your Updates Anywhere, Anytime
Get access to all of your updates no matter where you are in or out of the office. Workfront mobile apps for iPhone® and Android™ make it easy to collaborate with your team on the go. Log an issue as you see it, alert your team to a project direction change right after your planning meeting, or notify your team members if the document you needed approval on was just rejected. You can add an update in the My Work area, inline with a task list, while you’re filling out a timesheet, or after you’ve reviewed a document. Wherever you are in Workfront, you won't have to navigate away to update your team—update as you work so you can stay productive.
Take Control of Your Notifications
There’s no need to fill up your inbox with excessive updates or notifications. Manage your updates in the Set Up page with a quick checklist. Simply select the notifications you want to receive via email. For example, you can set up Workfront to notify you when a task you’ve assigned to someone else is marked complete. Whatever you want to see, Workfront caters to your preferences.
