In the setup area, there should be a way to opt out of "ads" that may pop up after login, or show up on the login screen.

As Skye stated, this should include:


  1. The gigantic ad on the login screen.
  2. Any in-system popups: ads for Leap, requests for customer feedback, ads for new features or integrations, etc.


I think what peeves me about this is we pay alot of money for systems like Workfront, and while having their logo on it is normal, they really have no right to use my users as a captive audience for their marketing and technical teams.


Also, *I* am the Admin, not Workfront. WF should not be deciding how it is acceptable to advertise to or coerce *my* users; your advertising efforts begin and end with the designated purchasing contact.


And from a purely SysAdmin point of view, it becomes a huge time sink having to explain to users "no, we can't implement that because of corporate policies" or "no, that isn't Workfront's fault, management had us make that change" or lots of time explaining Leap, and so on.


Workfront is really treading on thin ice by insinuating itself on employees and contractors of another corporate entity without consent.


And yes, I'm venting, because I just can't believe some group at WF thinks this sort of thing is acceptable...
