Level 10

Hi Everyone - here are the slides from our 2017 Leap Deck that talks about Workfront Week if you are interested. I find it really helps improve the WF experience at my agencies by finding who is lagging behind and needs extra help and then also pausing once a year to see how we can grow in the tool.


Level 4


From our breakout session I offered to share our governance charter. Please see attached. Hope you find it helpful.

Hi All,

I mentioned that we send out a survey for all of our users after they complete training. Our training is setup in the form of a Workfront project with the following tasks:

  1. Complete the Workfront Basics course in Dominium University (link in the description of this task)
  2. Let's practice navigating through Workfront structure
    1. Click on Projects > Portfolios > Active Properties. What is the first program in the list?
    2. Click on Home. How do you change your work list to view just your approvals?
    3. Click on Home. How do you view recently completed tasks?
    4. Click on Requests. What is the name of the Workfront help queue?
  3. Let's practice navigating through a project
    1. Tag Sarah Nau in an update on this task
    2. Upload a document to this task
    3. Navigate to the project details > custom data tab and provide us some feedback

Wanted to throw this out there...Chris Berry, the main speaker from this user group, put together a great Workfront Leap presentation on how to grow a governance model through a prescriptive step by step process. Check out the attached deck. If you still need help getting going we can help. Reach out to your Account Executive and we can go from there.
