Adobe Creative Cloud and Slack bring creative work and teamwork together. With the Creative Cloud for Slack app, designers can easily share their work, get feedback, and stay up to date on actions taken on their assets.

On the consent page, select Allow Access to grant required access to the app.

You can share the following types of Creative Cloud assets:
Creative Cloud file formats
Creative Cloud Library elements
.ai, .indd, .psd, .dn, and .xd
Library folders, fonts, and colors
.jpg, .jpeg, .png, and .svg
When you paste the public link of the Creative Cloud asset you want to share in the message box, a preview of the corresponding asset is displayed.
With public sharing, recipients get read-only access to your assets, which means they cannot upload, update, or delete them. To learn how to create a public link to a Creative Cloud asset, see Share Creative Cloud files, libraries, prototypes, and more.
To ensure that your team is updated with progress and activity on your Creative Cloud files, subscribe a link to a Creative Cloud file in a channel. The bot then notifies your channel members about comments and updates that happen on the subscribed link.
Go to the channel where you want to collaborate.
Type /adobe-subscribe followed by the link for your file, and press Enter.
All members of a channel receive a notification on the channel whenever a comment has been made, resolved, or when the link has been updated.
To reply to the comments directly from Slack, go to the Creative Cloud bot and respond there directly.
Notifications are enabled by default, but you can manage them. Only link owners can change notification settings for a link subscribed to a channel.
Go to the Creative Cloud bot or a channel for which you want to control notifications.
Type in /adobe-manage, and press Enter.
Select the link for which you want to manage notifications.
When managing notifications for the Creative Cloud bot, you do not see the option to select a link.
To turn off comments and events notifications, select Select Off from the drop-down.
You can turn them on again later by selecting On.
Select Save to save your changes.
When someone requests access to a password-protected XD link, you receive a notification in your Creative Cloud bot. You can grant or deny access to them directly from Slack. The requestor receives a notification on their Creative Cloud bot, if they have installed the app.
Open the channel that has the subscription link.
Type /adobe-manage in the message box, and press Enter.
Select your link from the list of options.
Select Remove link subscription to unsubscribe all channel members to the link.
Select Save to save your changes.
The Creative Cloud bot sends messages directly to you whenever comments are left on links to Adobe XD prototypes and design specs, Creative Cloud Files, and Document Cloud files.
Who receives notifications?
Notifications are enabled by default. You can manage notifications by typing /adobe-manage in the Creative Cloud bot.
The Creative Cloud for Slack app also supports French, German, Japanese, and Spanish languages. The Adobe Creative Cloud bot responds to your preferred Slack language.
When someone mentions your name or comments on a shared file, you can respond to the comment directly from Slack via a thread. Use threads when someone asks a question you know the exact answer to, without the need to open up the link.
Currently, this feature in not available in the channel where a link has been subscribed. Once you install the app, you can start a thread to respond to comments in the bot.
Follow these steps to start or reply to a thread:
Hover over the message or file for you want to reply to.
Select the Reply in thread.
A pane appears on the right.
You see the option Reply to thread for a thread that has already been started.
Type your message, and select Send. A new thread gets created.
Your comment gets synced to your linked file as well.
Currently, only text comments are supported. Rich text formatting and media comments appear as plain text in the comments.
If you're logged out, you need to reauthenticate your account first. Select Sign in, when prompted in the Adobe Creative Cloud channel, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
To share a private XD link, paste it in the message box of the individual or a channel and press Enter. You can also share password protected private XD links. The recipients of these links have to enter a password to access the link.
When you send a private XD link, the bot notifies you about how many members in the channel were added as reviewers to the private XD link from XD web app when it was created. It also prompts you to invite the remaining members of the channel to collaborate on the link. To invite the remaining members, select Yes, invite the channel, otherwise select No. If you select yes, the invited members are added as reviewers on your private XD link.
