Create and modify a group’s projects

When you are viewing a group that you manage in the Groups area, you can view and work with its projects in the following ways:

  • Create a new project for the group
  • Edit, export, copy, or delete a project

If there are any groups above your group, their administrators can also do these things for your group. The same is true for Workfront administrators (for any group).

Access requirements

You must have the following to perform the steps in this article:

Workfront plan*
Adobe Workfront license*


You must be a group administrator of the group or a Workfront administrator. For more information, see Group administrators and Grant a user full administrative access.

Object permissions
  • The project must be associated with the group or any of its subgroups.

    For information about assigning a group to a project, see Manage information in the project Overview area.

  • Also, you must have permissions to edit the project, either because you created it or it was shared with you.

    For information on requesting additional access, see Request access to objects.

NOTE: When you create a project from a group's page, the system assigns the project to that group. This is different from creating a project in other Workfront areas, where the system assigns the project to the Home Group of the user who creates it (the Project Owner).

*If you need to find out what plan or license type you have, contact your Workfront administrator.
