Access to custom forms

By default, when you create a new custom form and someone attaches it to an object, any user assigned to the object can view and fill out the form. This includes users with Request licenses and external users.

However, on an object where the custom form is not already attached, a user (even if they have a Planner access level) cannot attach it from the Custom Forms drop-down menu unless one of the following is true:

  • Someone shared the custom form with the user or with their team, job role, group, or company, granting at least View permission with the Attach to Custom Data selected
  • The user has a Plan license and their access level allows administrative access to custom forms

Share a custom form

Rather than leaving a custom form in the default sharing state (described in Access to custom forms in this article), you can configure specific levels of access to the form for certain users, job roles, groups, teams, and companies.

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

  2. In the left panel, click Custom Forms.

  3. Select the custom form, then click Share.

  4. In the box that displays, under Give custom form access to, start typing the name of the user, team, job role, group, or company you want to share the custom form with, then press Enter when the name displays.

  5. To adjust access for the user, team, job role, group, or company you just added, click the drop-down menu to the right of the name, then configure one of the following available options and any of its advanced settings:

    View it

    Ability to view and fill out the custom form on objects.

    NOTE: For users with Work, Review, and Request licenses, this is the highest available option.

    Click Advanced Settings to specify whether you want to allow the following:

    • Attach to custom data: Ability to attach the custom form to projects, tasks, and issues for which they have Manage access
    • Share: Ability to share the custom form with others in the system

      Users with a Work, Review, or Request license can share a custom form only through the API or a custom forms report. For more information, see .

    Manage it

    Available only for users with a Plan license.

    In addition to being able to add the form to objects they have access to edit, users can also fully edit the custom form, including adding, editing, and deleting fields.

    Click Advanced Settings to specify whether you want to allow following:

    • Attach to custom data: Ability to attach the custom form to projects, tasks, and issues for which they have Manage access

    • Delete: Delete the custom form from the system
    • Share: Share the custom form with others in the system
  6. (Optional) Repeat Steps 4-5 to add other names to the list and configure their options.

  7. (Optional) If you want to limit access to the custom form (on objects where it’s attached) to those you have specified in the previous steps, click the gear icon in the upper right corner of the sharing box, then click Remove system-wide access.

    If you change your mind, you can click Make this visible system-wide (the default option).

    NOTE
    • When you make a custom form visible system-wide, you allow users only to see and fill it out on objects they are assigned to, not to attach it to other objects. You can grant the ability to attach the custom form to objects using the option “Attach to custom data” explained under step 5.
    • Most organizations want to ensure that everyone in the system can fill out a custom form when it’s attached to objects they work on and view its data in reports. If this is true for your organization, we recommend that you use “Make this visible system-wide.” When the option is configured this way, “Visible System-Wide” displays in the dialog box:

    If you are concerned about a custom form where users might enter sensitive data when it is attached to certain objects, limiting sharing for those objects might be better rather than limiting access to the form itself.

  8. Click Save.

Remove access to a custom form

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

  4. In the box that displays, click the X to the right of the name of the user, team, role, group, or company whom you no longer want to have special access to the form.

  5. (Optional) Repeat the previous step to for other names you want to remove.

  6. Click Save.
