You can import projects from Microsoft Project™ directly into Workfront, and you can also use Kick-Starts to upload information that can be loaded into a spreadsheet from almost any data source. Workfront also lets you export lists and data from the application as PDF, Microsoft Excel™ (CSV), or TSV files.

Not only can you work with other applications (and their data) within Workfront, but you can also use a variety of avenues to access information by incorporating integrations.

You can integrate applications with Microsoft Outlook™ and Salesforce.com™. Users have access to RESTful API's.

Powerful integration features make Workfront the solution of choice for clients who want to get the most out of their project management platform. You can import and export Microsoft Project files, or import Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and CSV or TSV files from a variety of sources. Mobile integration also means that you can track and manage your projects from the office, at home, or while on the road.

A Software Development Kit (SDK) is available for software engineers who want to access the resources of Workfront from another application. Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) support means that you can exchange information between Workfront and other applications. Integration hooks and plug-in support for external authentication make it possible for Workfront to use LDAP, Active Directory, NDS, and so forth.
