Hello, I tried the new Workfront Experience and below are some notes/ thoughts:
Left Panel- This kept disappearing on me, especially when on the Projects Page. I had to refresh for it to reappear (and that didn't always work). It would be great if it had a >> Button to expand and << button to collapse. If every time my mouse drifted over there, the menu popped out, it would be irritating to say the least.
Dashboard List- For the life of me, I was unable to find the Dashboard list. In the current production it is under the reporting tab, but I couldn't find it anywhere
Portfolio List- I was also unable to find the list of Portfolios. Which makes top down administration difficult.
Tab Descriptions- I pinned one of my most used Dashboards to the top and the description said "Projects" , After pinning several items it looks like the tab description just takes the name of the Parent Page. So the top of my screen was basically [Projects][Projects][Projects][Projects][Projects][Projects].
Proof access from home screen- This is an issue in the current production system, but it looks like it has carried over to the new workfront experience. When you click "Go To Proof" from the home screen, it doesn't work. It either takes you to blank screen, or your calendar for some reason.
Without the items listed above, I found the Beta to be unusable. I've switched back and will wait for the next batch of improvements. Thanks, Saher Director, Project Management ClinicalMind
Hi @Saher Almaita , The dashboard and portfolio is in the global navigation menu (beside the magnifying glass thingy on the right) where all the major tab elements are founds including setup etc. Polly Co
This is great feedback Saher! I appreciate the detail and your initial impressions as this helps us improve the new experience. For your two items on the Main Menu (Dashboard and Portfolio lists), those items can be added to the Main Menu now and soon to your top navigation using Layout Templates. We have elevated many different areas to the Main Menu (Portfolios, Dashboards, Calendars, Programs, Templates, Teams and Resourcing). Soon we will provide you the capability to add Dashboards and Main Menu items to a user's top navigation using Layout Templates. For the Tab descriptions, this is an issue when you are pinning a custom dashboard while on the Projects or Project page. This is a bug that we will be resolving. A workaround is that you can navigate to the Dashboard directly and then pin the dashboard. Josh Boston Workfront
