Tips for team collaboration.
Keep conversations going with video communication apps including FaceTime, Skype, BlueJeans, Zoom and What’s App or non-video tools like texting, Slack and email.
Invite team members and clients to create projects with you. Or share branded templates with people across your company. It’s simple with Adobe Spark.
Adobe Fresco is a powerful drawing and painting tool that’s easy enough for anyone to use. If you like working on your iPad or Surface, use Adobe Fresco as a whiteboard to capture and share meeting notes with colleagues.
For UI/UX design teams, Coediting (beta) in Adobe XD lets you and other designers design and iterate in the same document in real time. Cloud documents let you create a design system and keep your entire team in sync and designers can use the Whiteboard plugin to ideate together. Learn more about working remotely as a team with XD.
Easily share Creative Cloud documents, assets and work in progress with colleagues and clients thanks to integrations with Slack, Microsoft Teams, Gmail, Jira, Asana and Workfront. Learn more
Share Creative Cloud Libraries to make sure everyone has access to the same design assets. Libraries let you re-use colours, icons, logos and more across all your Creative Cloud apps so you can save time and maintain brand consistency. Libraries also integrate with PowerPoint, so it's easy for teams to design presentations remotely. See how

Tips for reviewing and approving creative work.
Use videoconferencing tools like BlueJeans or Zoom to present your concepts to colleagues and clients and get real-time feedback.
Export your design files as PDFs and share them for review. You can even import comments from a PDF review into Adobe InDesign to easily manage the feedback. Learn more
If you use Adobe XD, create and share links to your designs and prototypes to show others and get feedback. Reviewers can see and interact with your designs from their browser and add comments. You can also import an Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator file into XD and use the same sharing capabilities. Learn more
Tips for publishing creative work.
Create graphics, web pages and videos once and share them to social media, the web and more using Adobe Spark. Export directly to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, email or text or simply save to your camera roll.
