Satellite Accounts in Workfront Proof

Satellite accounts are paid accounts that you set up and manage from within your own Workfront Proof account.

Your account becomes a "Hub," which is used to manage the Satellite account(s) linked to it.

There is no limit to the number of Satellite accounts you can set up, so you could create a separate account for each of your clients if you wanted.

You can add multiple users from an organization to the Satellite account and create a personalized, branded account for them to work in. 

Why should I set up a Satellite account?

At Workfront, we often get asked these questions:

  • Can I create a login for each of my clients?
  • How can clients login without seeing private data?
  • Should I add a freelancer to my Workfront Proof account?

Workfront Proof allows you to easily share proofs with anyone who has a valid email address - they don't even need their own login to Workfront Proof.

However, there may be times when you do want the participants in your workflow to have their own login so that they have their own dashboard and can see all the proofs that you have shared with them all within one place.

You may also want to increase security on your proofs by using the Login Required setting, in which case your reviewers will need to have their own login. For more information, see "Securing Proofs in Workfront Proof."

We strongly advise you against adding external people as users in your Workfront Proof account, as this could give them access to information that you do not want them to see.

So, how do you set up logins for people in other organizations?

By creating Satellite accounts for your clients.
