Problems using Adobe Workfront Plug In when exporting from InDesign

We have been exporting multiple InDesign files to pdf and then manually uploading into Workfront to proof throughout the company. Adobe Workfront has supplied a plug in for InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop that is supposed to allow us to upload directly from within the apps in order to shorten and streamline the process. Within Photoshop the plug in works fine when you are attaching additional jpg files. Withing InDesign, the files need converted to pdf or jpg in order to upload. The one open file converts to the selected format, but any additonal IND files added to the list do not convert, which causes the upload to fail since they are not all supported formats in Workfront.

Anyone else using this plug in who has been able to upload multiple IND files without opening each and every one? 

Mac OS 13.1, IND 18.1, and Workfront from the cloud.

Thanks.

Even though I have used InDesign since it began and teach the application, I had never heard of Adobe Workfront plug-in. A search indicated that it was part of the Adobe Experience Cloud but NOT Adobe Creative Cloud.

 

You should post your questions in whatever part of Adobe Experience Cloud allows you to do so because virtually no one here will be familiar with it.

FYI: For those other InDesign users don't understand either, read this link:

Thanks Steve. I've also posted to the workfront community, thought I'd check in here as well in case anyone is using it.

I get that, and appreciate it. But keep in mind that 99.9% of people in this forum have never used your software plug-in. So you might next time keep that in mind, and give a line or two about what the plug-in is. Good luck.

I've not worked in Workfront myself, and I wouldn't have known it existed if it didn't keep on showing up in the Links paths of files supplied by my clients (without Links folders, or the links themselves, of course! 🙂 ). 

 

Have you tried the old Workfront Extension for Illustrator and InDesign? Obsoleted and deprecated, but maybe worth a shot. 

 

Are you maybe talking about the Adobe Workfront for design and video plugin? Because I am looking for the plugin that you say supports PS, Indy, and Illy, and I'm not finding it anywhere.

Open Creative Cloud, click on stock & marketplace in the top menu, then plugins on the next menu line, and do a search for workfront. It should pop up with three plugins, workfront for XD, workfront for Photoshop and workfront for design and video.
