Add 'Add User' button to People Tab

New Workfront Experience.


Currently the 'Add Users' button is available in the Scheduling tab. The 'Add Users' button would be more convenient for our users in the 'People' tab, so we can then hide the scheduling tab for several layout templates.


The 'Add User' button is helpful in order to "tag" in a user in the system to the project without assigning them tasks, so they can be notified as part of the project team for different events.

I agree with this idea and would like to take it a step further.

When you "Add People" you should have the option of adding non-Workfront users (even outside parties with an email address) so you can create a communications register. There are many people that may want to be informed about the project without being assigned a task or as the sponsor. Add User would allow adding a non-assigned user with a general role like; Stakeholder, Key Stakeholder, Interested Party (or use the RACI matrix even).

Then, when you have selected user or users and do the Update All button it should be a wide screen & Rich Text box to update the users.

Future enhancements could even include linking specific elements from within the project (i.e. the Gantt chart view or open issues list or a built-in dashboard tab (i.e. we have a Status Report tab that is a dashboard within every project.

This creates an in-app process for communicating that cannot be done today.

@Kyna Baker could this idea be merged with this one https://one.workfront.com/s/idea/0874X000000oO1FQAU/detail?

They seem very similar to me.


With the Scheduling tool going away and Workload Balancer not having an Add User button, this is becoming a critical issue to my management. I hope an Add User button is added somewhere in the project.

100% agree - my team uses the "Add User" button a lot.

Got the pop-up notification this week that the Scheduling tab will be deactivated in October 2022 - is there a plan to have "Add User" added to either the Workload Balancer tab or the People tab?
