Integration with Microsoft Word and Workfront. We would like to have tracked changes inside of WF or to have the ability to edit documents within the proofing tool.

To elaborate on this, I'd like to see a way to add a Word, Powerpoint, etc. doc as a proof and have the native comments in the document carry over to Workfront comments.

We have a couple workaround for this, but agree it would be a nice feature to have Microsoft and Workfront collaboration.

We utilize a shared folder in OneDrive for those to upload a document to the project. That way it is shared to everyone. Anyone who opens the file that the requestor uploaded, they can make edits to it - but they must put it in the OneDrive folder before uploading. For proofing, we proof the SharePoint link that is the word document, so then changes can be made within that file. It opens up in Workfront Proof.
