Configure preferences for user updates

You can configure preferences that give users access to certain features when they are adding comments in an object’s Updates area.

Access requirements

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

Adobe Workfront plan
Adobe Workfront license
Access level configurations

To perform these steps at the system level, you need the System Administrator access level.

To perform them for a group, you must be a manager of that group.

NOTE: If you still don't have access, ask your Workfront administrator if they set additional restrictions in your access level. For information on how a Workfront administrator can modify your access level, see Create or modify custom access levels.
