What's New in Adobe Connect 9.5.2

Launch Adobe Connect Session Without Flash

Users can now attend Adobe Connect sessions even if Flash is blocked or not available on their systems. They can do so by using the Adobe Connect Add-in. Users who try joining a session on a ‘Flashless’ environment will be prompted to install the add-in.

Users will be required to download and install this add-in and then re-enter the session. The download and install will be a one-time activity only for the user, this add-in will be launched whenever the user enters an Adobe Connect session.

Seminar Move Improvements

We have made it simpler to move seminar rooms across seminar licenses. Users can find this option to move under the seminar room list.

A user can select multiple seminar rooms to move, but there are few restrictions:

  • Users can't move folders
  • User can’t move a seminar room which has a running seminar session
  • User can’t move a seminar room that has a scheduled large seminar session that starts in less than 45 min ( large seminar session buffer)
  • User can’t move a seminar room that has a scheduled seminar session that starts in less than 45 min ( large seminar session buffer) into a large seminar license

If there is a conflict in the existing session of the room and the license it is being moved, the user will be prompted with a warning and the list of conflicting sessions. The user may choose to proceed in which case the conflicting sessions of the source seminar license will be deleted.
