Getting Started with Workstream


This article covers the information you need to know to configure Workstream for your team.


Accessing Workstream

  • Log in to Webdam.

  • Click your name in the top right-hand side of the navigation and select Workstream.



To access the Preferences, log in to Workstream and click the Manage tab in the secondary navigation.


Workstream access:

  • Choose which contributor groups have access to Workstream. These groups correspond to the groups that exist in your DAM.
  • If you’d like to create groups specifically for Workstream, you will need to create them in Webdam. Click here to learn more about Configuring Users and Groups.



Check the box under the Assets section to make assets uploaded to a project or task inactive, meaning they cannot be downloaded by any user or viewed by end users (read more about asset statuses). We suggest checking this box to ensure assets in production aren’t accessed by unauthorized users.

  • Locally stored assets: Assets that are added to a task or project and were not previously housed in your DAM, will appear in a folder titled Workstream Assets. By default, only admins will be able to view the Workstream Assets folder. Once the assets have been added to the DAM, they can be moved to other folders with the permissions of that folder applied.

    Note: Do not delete or rename the Workstream Assets folder.
  • DAM assets: Assets that are added to a task or project from a folder in your DAM will remain in their original folder and will be  accessible to those who have permissions to view and download them.


Task statuses:
Task statuses are a way for users to provide updates on the status of a particular task. Two of the task statuses can be customized to your needs, while the others are static.

  • To edit the status name, click Edit Title.


  • To edit the color of a status, click the color preview swatch and select your desired color.


File size limits:

To generate a proof, therefore enabling the proofing tool, files must be less than 500MB in size. Files larger than 500MB can still be sent through Workstream for viewing and approvals, but they won’t generate a proof.

See the list of supported files types here.
