Hacker's Guide To Workfront

Avatar

Level 4

I've had the idea of a Workfront Admin/Text field cookbook for a long time.  

 

Note that I don't work for Workfront/Adobe so this would be more of a Hacker's Guide to Workfront than the Authorized Guidebook

 

I just commented about this in an Ask the Expert call and there was a lot of support.

 

So what is your wishlist of what would go into this?

 

Note that this does exist:

I think a lot of the text mode talk is folks giving other folks some fish… instead of teaching them how to fish. I would like to see more of a syntax guide along with all the "gotchas". There is a plethora of examples out there, no need for more. 

API calls and the syntax behind them would be great too.

Not only would I be willing to contribute, I would also buy one!

Hi there, so like a text mode cheat sheet? I do like the cookbook style that shows screenshots and use case. I actually have a running list of text mode bits that I’ve added to on my own over past couple years, happy to share it for ideas on nuggets to include…

If this helped you, please mark correct to help others : )
