Delete object types on a custom form

You can delete object types from an existing custom form.

A custom form must have at least one object type.


If people have already attached the custom form to objects of the type you want to delete and added data to it, that data is permanently deleted when you delete that object type on the form. It might include historical information that users will need later.

In general, we recommend minimizing the number of times you edit a custom form that is already in use. There is no notification system to alert people who use the custom form about your changes.

  1. Click the Main Menu icon in the upper-right corner of Adobe Workfront, then click Setup .

  2. Click Custom Forms in the left panel.

  3. Select the custom form you want to edit, then click Edit.

  4. Click the X on any of the Object Types that you want to delete from the form, then click Delete on the warning message that displays.

  5. (Optional) Repeat the previous step for any other object type you want to remove from the form.

  6. Click Done, then click Close and Save.
