TLS Support Is Ending tls-support-is-ending

Legacy Workfront FusionUpdate - September 20, 2018 legacy-workfront-fusionupdate-september-20-2018

Legacy Workfront Fusion is an integration platform that enables you to connect Workfront to multiple third-party applications.

With the latest update, Legacy Workfront Fusion now provides an improved design that makes the process for creating new FLOs more intuitive. The specific changes include:

  • New FLO:  Clicking the new FLO now takes users to the Designers screen, rather than first prompting to pick the connector. This change helps you to orient yourself to the overall FLO and understand that any FLO should start with an Event.
  • Add Function:  The function picker has been updated to make it easier to find and select the desired function. Descriptions of the functions, along with input and output fields, have been updated to add intuitive guidance. The new “Most Popular” section helps you get started with the most commonly used Functions.
