Flash Feature Groupings

For most customers, Workfront is removing all Flash-based tools as part of the 2018.3 release to the Production environment (for more information, see "Replacement of Flash-Based Tools in Workfront"). However, if your organization is identified as a regular user of one of the current Flash tools in Workfront, you will continue to have access to that Flash tool after the 2018.3 release is made available in Production.

Following the 2018.3 release to Production, Flash tools are enabled for your organization as part of a feature grouping. If your organization is identified as requiring access to a particular Flash tool, you will continue to have access to that tool, along with other Flash tools in the Workfront application that are part of the same feature grouping.

You will receive a message in the Announcement Center in Workfront if any of the feature groupings will be enabled for your organization. These feature groupings are currently reflected in your Preview environment, prior to the 2018.3 Production release.

IMPORTANT Be aware of the following conditions when accessing Flash-based tools after the 2018.3 release:

  • The Legacy Proofing Viewer will not be available for any organizations after the 2018.3 release.
  • Any feature grouping currently enabled for your organization will eventually be removed, and you will no longer have access to the Flash tools included with that feature grouping. We encourage you to take any necessary steps to move away from any Flash-based features to their replacement features as soon as possible. For more information, see "Understanding Legacy Flash-Based Tools and Their Replacements."
