2019.2 Beta 3 Release Activity

This page describes all changes planned with the 2019.2 Beta 3 release. The functionality is planned to be available in the Preview environment on April 12, 2019. It will be made available in the Production environment in mid-2019.

IMPORTANT Functionality described on this page is subject to change prior to availability in the Production environment.

For a list of all changes made in 2019.2, see "2019.2 Release Activity Overview."

The 2019.2 Beta 3 release contains the following enhancements:

Attach Default Custom Forms and Approval Processes to Tasks

You can now configure default custom forms and approval processes to attach to tasks when you add tasks to a project. You can configure the default settings at the project level.
For information about configuring default custom forms and approval processes for tasks at the project level, see the "Tasks" section in the "Editing Projects" article.

New Resource Management Access Level

We are introducing a new level of access for Resource Management. Users with a Plan License will be able to receive Edit access to Resource Management which will allow them to do the following:

  • Prioritize projects in the Resource Planner
  • Budget resources in the Resource Planning tools
  • Manage Resource Pools

Users with a Work and Review license will have access to View for this level of access.

With this change, managing Resource Pools is now part of the Resource Management access level. Prior to this update, the access to manage Resource Pools was listed as part of the administrative access for the Planner license.

Also, with this change, being designated as a Resource Manager on a project is no longer required, but having the correct access to Resource Management is required to be able to manage resources.

For information about the new access required for budgeting resources, see "Access Needed to Budget Resources."

For information about the new Resource Management access level, see "Understanding Resource Management Access."

Order Projects by Portfolio Priorities in the Resource Planner

You can now order projects by their portfolio priority in the Resource Planner.

Prior to this enhancement, you could only view the portfolio priority in the Resource Planner and order the projects only by their planner priority.

For information about ordering projects by portfolio priority in the Resource Planner, see "Prioritizing Projects in the Resource Planner."

Resource Planner Filter Improvement

We have made the filtering experience in the Resource Planner simpler by adding a new field (Group) to the built-in filter criteria. You can now find the most used filters in the built-in options.

For information about filters in the Resource Planner, see "Filtering Content in the Resource Planner."

 

Updated Workfront for Adobe Creative Cloud Integration

The Workfront for Adobe Creative Cloud extension now includes the integration with Workfront Library. You can now access assets saved in Workfront Library from Adobe Creative Cloud applications using the Workfront for Adobe Creative Cloud extension.

For information about the integration of Workfornt Library with Adobe Creative Cloud, see "Using Workfront for Adobe Creative Cloud with Workfront Library"

Allow users without a proofing license to apply actions and resolve comments

Now, users without a proofing license can apply actions to comments and resolve comments. You can grant permission for these activities when you are adding a user to a proof.

Previously, only users with a proofing license and the proofing role of Author or Moderator could apply actions and resolve comments on a proof.

For more information, see "Configuring Settings for Users Added to the Proof" in the article "Configuring Proofs in Workfront."

Tag Any User when Commenting on a Proof in the Proofing Viewer

When you are commenting on a proof, if you have edit rights on the proof, you can now tag or "@mention" anyone with an email address recognized by Workfront. This includes:

Anyone who has been added to a proof in your organization's Workfront account using the email address.

Anyone who has used the email address to subscribe to a proof in your organization's Workfront account.

Previously, you could tag only users who had been added to the proof's workflow. This is still the way tagging works if you do not have edit right on the proof.

For more information, see the section "Commenting on a Proof" in the article "Creating and Managing Proof Comments."
