Add "Copy User" or "Create New User from..." option to a specific user's details screen


Level 10


As an admin, I'm frequently asked to add users to the system. I generally will search for a "like" user already in the system and check to see what groups/teams/access level the current user is assigned to, and set up my new user in a similar way.

I have "New from Selected Person" available to me from the People/People tab, but I don't necessarily want to set up a filter to allow me to see only the subset of users I want to see. It would be wonderful for admin users to have the option to create a new user from an existing user's details tab.

I was about to post this myself, but I serached for it instead and found this one. It would be immensely helpful to be able to copy an existing user, then make the 2-3 edits for a new user, than have to build the entire profile again from scratch. Baring that, it would be useful to be able to create user templates, so I could then just update the users specific info, again rather than creating a new one from scratch...




Thank you for the submission! We think this is a good enhancement to the Workfront platform overall and this product area in particular!


Workfront currently prioritizes large-scale, foundational enhancements such as the new Reporting experience and changes to the core data model, so this item does not fit in our near-term roadmap. As such, I am marking this as Declined now, but we'll keep this in our backlog for the improvements for this area so that we can revisit the decision in the future.

Status changed to: Declined
