You’re in the driver’s seat.

When you move up from Creative Suite to the 2015 release of Creative Cloud for teams, you can deploy apps and updates the way that works best for you and your team. Either do it centrally, so you can control the frequency of updates, or allow team members to self-install. Either way, you’ll give them access to the creative apps they need — including Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesign CC — to do their greatest work.
Deployment? You’re in the driver’s seat.
License management made simple.

License management made simple.


Your licenses are always current, so noncompliance is a nonissue. Deploy Adobe software to your team members even before the purchasing process is complete — billing catches up at the next payment cycle. And because licenses are tied to the company, not the individual user, you can reissue seats at any time.

Quick reference guide for IT administrators.



Members get access to all of Adobe's creative apps plus new features and updates as soon as they're released. Choose the installation option that works best for your organization.

Desktop apps:

Allow users to self-install the desktop apps and updates (must have permission to install locally), or use Creative Cloud Packager to centrally package and deploy apps and updates across the organization.

Mobile apps:

Available from the iTunes App Store and activated with an Adobe ID.


Accessed through the Creative Cloud desktop app as well as other desktop, mobile and web apps.

Minimum system

Print and web apps use Photoshop system requirements as a benchmark. Video apps use Adobe Premiere Pro system requirements as a benchmark.


Organizations purchase and manage licenses, but individual users activate and authenticate through Adobe's servers with their Adobe ID and password.


Through a user's Adobe ID and password. Learn more.


Through a web-based Admin Console. Learn more.


Because mobile apps and services let users work anywhere, administrators should familiarize themselves with file syncing and storage in order to maintain governance over assets. Learn more.


Cloud-based services and storage are authorized with a user's Adobe ID.


Administrators may access locally synced Creative Cloud folders or access cloud storage with a user's Adobe ID and password.

Support and training

Support is included for both administrators and users.


Advanced, 24/7 technical support via phone, email, chat and forums.


Expert Services (1:1 consulting sessions with Creative Cloud experts), video tutorials and step-by-step product guides.


Desktop apps run from users' hard drives, not their browsers. Network bandwidth is not required, but there are a few network considerations.


Bandwidth is required for app download and installation as well as cloud-based syncing and storage. Bandwidth can be affected by the number of users self-installing or syncing assets to the cloud.

Internet access:

An Internet connection required at least once every 99 days to validate membership.

  1. Members of my organization already have individual Creative Cloud memberships. Can I switch them to Creative Cloud for teams?

    Yes, individual Creative Cloud members can upgrade to Creative Cloud for teams with no cancellation fee. To do so, please call Customer Care for support. Be prepared to provide:

    • Adobe ID for the primary admin of the teams membership
    • Phone number for the primary admin
    • Adobe IDs for the individual memberships you want to switch to the teams membership

    Alternatively, if you invite someone in your organization to join Creative Cloud for teams, and they already have an individual membership, all they need to do is accept their Creative Cloud for teams invitation (using their Adobe ID). They will automatically be prompted to cancel their individual membership.

  2. My organization wants to block access to certain services, such as storage and community features, available through Creative Cloud. Is this possible?

    Yes, your IT administrators can block users from accessing the online services. The online services and their URLs are listed here.

    As an administrator, you will also be able to
    deploy Creative Cloud desktop applications independent of the cloud-based services using the Creative Cloud Packager. The Creative Cloud Packager is available through Creative Cloud for teams.

  3. Can I block my users from using Creative Cloud for teams storage?

    There is no way to centrally disable access to Creative Cloud storage. Any end users who have access to the web via a browser have the ability to store their files in the cloud. However, if users are on a corporate network and using company-administered machines, the following network calls can be blocked via the organization's firewall, thereby blocking use of storage while on the
