Understanding Workfront DAM

Workfront DAM is a cloud-based DAM platform that provides a single location where you can store, organize, find, retrieve, and share digital files. You can save documents from Workfront to Workfront DAM, and you can add documents to Workfront via Workfront DAM.

Workfront DAM enables you to do the following tasks:

  • Distribute and share assets with teams and third-parties, eliminating the need for FTP uploads or large email files
  • See and share assets
  • Send curated assets and associated metadata from Workfront directly into Workfront DAM
