2018.3 Software Release — Training Content Updates
The 2018.3 Workfront software release — going live in Workfront production environments the week of November 5 — helps transform how you engage with work in Workfront. Improved features in Workfront Home and new permissions for group administrators help knowledge workers of all levels get into the flow and stay coordinated.
Updates to training courses
To help you stay up-to-date on key release features, the Workfront Training team has updated content in on-demand and live courses. These changes will be available Monday, Nov. 12.
