Create an account in Adobe Workfront as an external user

You may be invited to view or approve items in Workfront even though you are not a member of a Workfront organization. For example, you may be requested to review or approve documents. You can view or approve these items more easily by creating an account in Workfront.

When a user in Workfront makes a request for you to review or approve a document, you receive an email. Clicking the link in the email takes you directly to the item that was shared with you.

Creating an account in Workfront allows you to see all items shared with or requested from you. Without an account, you can access these items only through the individual email links.

Create an account

You can create an account while viewing any asset that has been shared with you.

  1. On the asset page, click Finish Account Setup in the document header.

  2. Fill in the Password section.

    For details, see Password.

  3. (Optional) Fill in the Profile section.

    For details, see Profile.

  4. Click Create Account.

When presented with the Create an account page, fill in the following information.


The username for your Workfront account is your email address.

Create a new password for your account

Passwords must be at least 8 characters long and include two or more of the following:

  • Uppercase letters
  • Lowercase letters
  • Numbers
  • Special characters


Creating a profile is optional but recommended. Your name and image make it easier for other users to, for example, see that it is you who has assigned to approve a given document, or find you in a list when assigning reviewers.

Log in to Workfront

After you have created your account, you can log into Workfront to view items shared with or assigned to you.

  • The username for your Workfront account is your email address.

  • The domain for your Workfront account is the domain of the organization that sent you the request.

    You can find the organization’s domain by clicking the link in the email, then checking the URL of the document. The domain appears at the beginning of the URL.

    https://<Domain is here>
