This page describes all other enhancements made with the 21.1 release to the Preview environment. These enhancements will be made available in the Production environment the week of February 15, 2021.
For a list of all changes available with the 21.1 release, see 21.1 release overview.
We are updating the soft-disable requirements of Event Subscription failures. In addition to the existing requirements, Event Subscriptions will now be soft disabled if they fail to achieve a successful delivery within 2000 attempts. This is to strengthen the existing 70% failure rule which can lead to excessive amounts of failures, under some conditions.
Additionally, we’ll be adding in hard-disable requirements as of February 2021.
For additional information about the new soft-disable and hard-disable requirements, see FAQs - Event Subscriptions.
We’ve added Team approval and assignments fields to the Action Needed Daily Digest email.
For more information, see Notifications: Action needed.
We’re replacing the POP email option for request queues with a new Workfront-managed system. You will still be able to submit requests via email, but you’ll need to set up a new Adobe Workfront-managed email address in the Request Queue area instead.
These changes are available to test in Preview.
Email is automatically disabled in all Preview environments. To enable email for testing purposes, see Enable delivery of emails from the Preview Sandbox environment.
For more information, see Enable users to email an issue into a Request Queue project.
For more information about why we are making this change, see New Adobe Workfront managed system to replace POP email for Request Queues with 21.1.
This feature is now included in the Queue Management in the new Workfront experience learning path on Workfront One.
To provide more control over timesheets and hour editing, we’ve added a setting that allows you to restrict hour editing to timesheet owners and system administrators.
Previously, users with the Timesheets & Hours option enabled in their access level could edit hours on any timesheet.
For more information, see Configure timesheet and hour preferences.
We’ve added the following improvements when you add a Project, Task, or Issue to a Timesheet:
For more information, see Log time.
You can now hide the overtime box to ease user confusion if you do not track overtime in Workfront. You can hide the overtime box for a single-use timesheet or in the Timesheet Profile:
Previously, you could not hide the overtime box on timesheets.
To allow easier viewing of the full breadcrumb path, we’ve added expand and collapse functionality.
Now, any truncated items are grouped before the Project with the text “more”. For example, “3 more” indicates that there are 3 objects that aren’t displaying.
Previously, you had to click the ellipsis to display any truncated objects in a drop-down menu.
To view all items in the breadcrumb, click “more” at the beginning of the breadcrumb to expand the items. Once expanded, you can click “Less” to collapse the items again.
To help users to better identify where they are in Workfront and more easily navigate between objects, we’ve made the following improvements to breadcrumb navigation:
