You now have the Beta of the new Workfront experience in your production instance, allowing you to use the new experience in your daily work. System admins can switch themselves and other users back and forth between the new Workfront experience and Workfront Classic.
I wanted to highlight a few new features now available in the new experience.
Welcome to your new workspace! As you navigate to your most frequently visited work areas inside Workfront, you'll notice you can now pin their locations. This allows you to create your own Workspace where you'll always be one click away from what matters most to you.
Customization using Layout Templates
Workspaces provide users the ability to customize their navigation to be the most important items to them. However, organizations also have important and custom areas of Workfront that they always want present in the global navigation.
In the next few weeks, we will provide the ability for system admins to set default pins and landing page within a users' workspace so that the organization can continue to have a level of governance. It provides the best of both worlds for the user and the organization.
Favorites icon in the top navigation
Your feedback drove this update to add the favorites icon back to the top navigation and remove favorites from the new search screen. Enjoy!
New Project Details now with customization
You can now configure the order of sections in the details and hide/show native details data. Custom data can now be elevated and only the fields you want shown to your users.
Next we will be moving this new details experience to task and issue details.
Updated look for Reports and Dashboards
For the past two weeks, your feedback has consolidated around search and navigation. Above we mentioned our latest updates on navigation. Below is a summary of the search feedback with a response from the Workfront product team on our next steps:
We've heard a lot of great feedback around filtering. Some positive, some negative. One of the biggest challenges we've heard our users are having is around multi-filter search and advanced searching. The need to contour searches in order to get accurate results back to find what users are looking for is key. To address this, we're adding back the ability to enter advanced search from the search page. This allows users to perform their basic searches in the existing design we have today but also have access to advanced search for when you need specific levers to find what you're looking for.
Additionally, please refer to the following posts for previous feedback and next steps since the Beta started. You can find our responses for your feedback around the new object headers and the new side summary in these discussion posts:
