You can collaborate with other users and share a private Creative Cloud Library or folder from your Creative Cloud account with specified users. All invited users can then work co-operatively with read-only (locked) assets in a shared private folder or library. Collaborators can view, edit, rename, move, or delete contents of the shared folder or library if they've been granted the necessary access rights and permissions.

To share public links to files and folders with others (share assets with read-only access), see Share files, libraries, and more.

For more information about libraries in Creative Cloud, see Creative Cloud Libraries.

To share your work and seek feedback from a wider network of creatives, see Publish to Behance from Creative Cloud.

If you're using Creative Cloud for enterprise with managed services, see:


Collaborate on folders

Add collaborators

  1. You can share a folder, using either the website or the Creative Cloud Files folder on your desktop. Do one of the following:

Website

From the folder menu, choose Collaborate. If you’re viewing the contents of a folder, choose Share > Collaborate.

From the folder menu, choose Collaborate

Desktop

From the folder's context menu, choose Creative Cloud > Collaborate.

 

From the folder context-menu, choose Creative Cloud, Collaborate

  1. In the Invite Collaborators dialog, enter an email address. To invite multiple collaborators, enter a list of email addresses separated by a comma or semicolon.
  1. Choose whether you want to give the collaborators Edit permissions (Can Edit) or View permissions (Can View). The permissions apply to all the collaborators whose email addresses you entered.

Can Edit

Collaborators can edit, rename, move, and delete the contents of the folder.

Can View

Collaborators can only view the contents of the folder and comment on them.

Click Invite
Choose what permissions you want to grant to your collaborators

Note:

Useful considerations regarding permissions:

  • Can Edit: Collaborators having Can Edit permissions can change the permissions for other collaborators. Collaborators with View-only permissions can see who the owner and collaborators are, but they can't make any changes to their collaboration permissions.
  • Can View: Collaborators with View-only permissions can copy the contents of the shared folder to a new folder and make changes privately to them.
  • Editors and viewers have an option to leave a collaboration at any time.

  1. Click Invite.

    Your collaborators receive an email invitation stating whether they've been invited to view the shared folder or edit it. Existing Creative Cloud members also receive a notification via the Creative Cloud desktop app and the Creative Cloud website.

Note:

Collaborators require an Adobe ID; if they don't have one already, they can create one when they accept the invitation.

Manage collaborators

You can easily manage collaborators for a shared folder. Simply click the icon next to the folder name.
