Improvements When Exporting the Role and Project Views of the Resource Planner improvements-when-exporting-the-role-and-project-views-of-the-resource-planner

When exporting the Resource Planner from the Role or Project Views, you can now export all the levels of information just as you access the lists.

Prior to this improvement, you had to do the following:

  • Manually expand all levels of information (role, project, and user), and then export them from the Resource Planner in the Role View.
  • Manually scroll to the bottom of your list to export all levels of information (project, role, and user) from the Resource Planner in the Project View.

For more information about exporting the Resource Planner, see Resource Planner display limitations.

Access Multiple Proofs Directly from the proofing viewer (Workfront Proof) access-multiple-proofs-directly-from-the-proofing-viewer-workfront-proof

In Workfront Proof, when you store multiple proofs in the same folder, users with access to those proofs can review and compare them without leaving the proofing viewer.

If the folder contains many proofs, you can use the search box at the top of the open folder to quickly find the proof you want.

You can also sort the proofs by clicking one of the column headings above them.

Previously when using Workfront Proof, it was not possible to access multiple proofs while in a proofing viewer.

This functionality is available only when using the Web Proofing Viewer or the Desktop Proofing Viewer; it is not available when using the Legacy proofing viewer.

For more information, see Work with multiple proofs in the proofing viewer.
