  • Now let’s talk about how to actually use the Admin Console to provision and manage Creative Cloud for teams. In the team management screen, you can do a number of things including add seats, invite users, monitor their usage, etc.
  • What is Creative Cloud Packager? Creative Cloud Packager is a tool that enables administrators to centrally deploy all Creative Cloud applications, or a customized subset. Creative Cloud Packager ensures version parity across desktops, saving support costs and network congestion. What are the benefits of using Creative Cloud Packager? Creative Cloud Packager enables you, the IT admin, to maintain control of how Creative Cloud applications (and feature updates) are installed. Centralized deployment ensures that everyone is on the same version of the software, which reduces support costs. Centralized deployment also prevents network congestion, as you don’t have multiple users downloading the same bits at the same time. Customization & Flexibility You can tailor the Creative Cloud packages to meet the needs of your team. For example you can package Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign for some team members, and then provide all of the video production tools to others. As the team grows and evolves, different packages can be created and deployed in order to ensure team members always have the tools they need to be successful. You can choose 32-bit or 64-bit versions of the applications, and specify advanced configuration options, providing greater control. Ease of Use Creative Cloud Packager has an easy-to-use interface that makes it simple to create a deployment package. The packages created by Creative Cloud Packager are in familiar, industry-standard formats (MSI in Windows, PKG in Mac OS) that are compatible with familiar, industry-standard deployment solutions such as SSCM and ARD.
