Need ability to paste an image in Updates

Description - It would be super helpful if we could paste a screengrab in Updates rather than having to save down an image somewhere and then link to it. Often times it's just a quick visual needed to get a point across

Why is this feature important to you - we spend more time saving an image to sharepoint, copying the link and pasting it into an update than it would take to copy and paste directly from a snipping tool into the update wysiwyg box.

How would you like the feature to work - copy and paste directly from a snipping tool into the update wysiwyg box

Current Behaviour - saving an image to sharepoint, copying the link and pasting it into an update

This idea is a continuation of the incomplete (although they said it was Delivered) Idea here https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/workfront-ideas/allow-screenshots-in-updates-commen...

 

Most are unhappy with the current implementation and have been asking for updates for over a year now and unfortunately nobody from WF seems to want to share any info. I'd expect the fact that it shows "Delivered" means they checked the box and moved on. 

 

We need the basic functionality to behave as you requested. The current implementation is useless for so many customers. Forcing the image to exist somewhere other than the clipboard is almost as bad as telling someone to upload to "Documents" and pasting a hyperlink in the Update. It's sad that this was delivered in late 2021 and there hasn't been any progress made to fix this huge gap (on the #1 most requested feature in WF over the last 6 years). There's been 3 additional pages of discussion in that Idea with no response from Workfront.

@JeffWu1 i agree! that's what we're doing now and it takes SO MUCH EXTRA TIME. not to mention, some users don't have access to the documents section. Clipboard is the way to go and the experience everyone is accustomed to!

Definitely. This needs to move forward. It's an adoption nightmare when trying to migrate users off similar systems that have this functionality for 1/5th the cost of a WF license.
