Never Fly Blind Again
Flying blind is never wise—especially when it comes to resource planning. With Workfront, you have the project visibility into what people are already working on and can see exactly how new work assignments will affect your team’s workloads.
Balance Workloads Fairly
Workfront gives you full visibility into all the work your team members are doing and tells you, according to their total amount of working hours, exactly how allocated each person is. This helps you maintain balanced workloads and expectations.
Avoid Crash Landing Your Projects
Workfront's resource calendar provides visibility into who’s working on what, where it is in the process, and what other tasks are on their plate. This way you don’t overload resources or derail timelines and can keep your projects at cruising altitude.
Workfront helps you identify when team members have too much on their plates and allows you to easily redistribute the load by simply dragging and dropping assignments across the team. This allows you to boost productivity by arming team members with clear expectations, balanced workloads, and tasks suited to their skills and availability.
Resource calendar view
What good is a resource planning tool if it’s difficult to look at and offensive to the eyes? Workfront gives you Resource Visibility in conjunction with a fantastic user experience. Your resources and work are shown in a colorful, simple calendar view or resource grid where you can easily drag and drop assignments to any resource on any available date, move work around, or make reassignments as necessary. This view will also show you which tasks and team members are on track, and which may be falling behind, making it easier for you to stay on top of your most important projects and initiatives.
Easily filter projects and programs by users or roles so you see what you need in order to effectively assign tasks. Do you have certain resources that you know are the most effective on certain types of projects? With our smart, at-a-glance design, you can quickly see if they are over or under allocated. Save your most commonly used filters for future scenarios for even more efficiency.
Easily contour tasks
Your resource managers can now designate the exact number of hours a team member can spend on a task. Pre-contour tasks before assigning them to a team member. Or wait until you’ve assigned it before contouring the tasks. Either way–it’s quick, efficient, and easy.
Streamlined work management
Your team can now see the same contoured task breakdown on their My Work calendar, so they know exactly which tasks are on their week’s docket and how much time to spend on those tasks.
Bulk edit attributes within projects and tasks simultaneously, allowing for continued productivity and visibility. You no longer have to go into each object to make the same change across multiple object fields. Need to change the priority of projects or tasks or swap roles on tasks? Simply select the tasks, projects or roles and initiate the change with a few clicks.
